We are a family of creatives focused on making our businesses a priority — through small accountability coaching groups and an active Slack community.
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 Accountability Coaching Groups: 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 coach in the Creatives Roundtable small group coaching 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 a small accountability coaching 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.
Creatives Roundtable has been an essential part of my growth as a consultant and creative business owner. As part of this supportive community of like-minded individuals, I am able to exchange ideas and converse on creative business topics, as well as personal goals, in an inspiring and enlightening environment. The monthly expert speakers have been an incredible resource, offering valuable insights to help businesses like mine grow. The group has also connected me with other creatives who offer ancillary services such as graphic design, allowing me to focus on what I do best while having access to a reliable network of professionals to support my business needs. Overall, I highly recommend Creatives Roundtable to anyone looking for a transformative community of creatives and entrepreneurs.
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 coach, 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. In 2021 Nancy was named to Graphic Design USA's People to Watch list. Nancy is also a founding member of Fly Female Founders in New York City, launched the AIGT CT civic initiative Healthcare 4 All, and teaches typography at Southern Connecticut State University.
