We are an online accountability group, and community of creatives focused on making our business a priority.
Whether you’ve been a creative freelancer for 3 years or 30+ — are an established solopreneur, or have spent years building your small agency— the Creatives Roundtable (CR) was created with you in mind.
When you join the Creatives Roundtable, here’s what you can expect:
- Small-Group Coaching: be placed in a group of 5-6 people who have all been in their creative business for several years, for accountability
- Daily Interaction: participate in a very active slack group to exchange ideas and converse on creative business topics, business topics, and personal goals — building relationships
- Special Events: monthly speakers who are experts in industries that are beneficial to your business
- Community: you will find yourself welcome among your peers to cheer you on, attend events with you, and be there when you need answers
- Small for a reason: we like to know one another, and keeping the membership numbers down is a great way to be seen and heard

Having Nancy as a moderator in the Creatives Roundtable mastermind is a huge leg up on working out my business goals because she has been there. Her decades of real-world business experience, coupled with her insights, resources, encouragement, and accountability, help me stay on track with my business goals.
The Creatives Roundtable is more than an accountability group — it is a resource that allows for open and honest discussions around business challenges and ideas for growth. Being a part of this group has changed the way I think about my business and has given me the tools and support to expand and thrive.
Nancy’s group sessions have been such an asset to my business. Nancy is ‘in the trenches’ and understands the day-to-day challenges of getting new clients, marketing, and staying on top of your work as a solo. Her experience and advice have given me the motivation to keep moving forward and reach for new goals in my business. Thank you, Nancy!
The Creatives Roundtable is awesome for peer-to-peer feedback, bouncing ideas off of one another, and keeping up with what other freelance designers like me are doing. Nancy is an amazing facilitator and helps breakdown goals into manageable tasks in a fun and supportive environment.
The Creatives Roundtable has been an invaluable resource for my business. Nancy is a fantastic moderator, keeping everyone motivated, on-track, and inspired. She’s always willing to lend extra support and is a wealth of knowledge.
Nancy has 30+ years of experience operating her own graphic design firm — Ruzow Graphics where she believes that design should be clean, clear, and easy to understand — because creative solutions that promote and persuade ultimately perform. Nancy is a good listener, an observer of small details, and passionate about creative business. Nancy is also on the leadership team of Fly Female Founders in New York City, and the Director of Design for Good for AIGA Connecticut, where we just launched the civic initiative Healthcare 4 All.
