Welcome to our Circle

This effort wants to connect you to likeminded people - online and offline - with no membership fees, no product pitches, and a fresh look at networking. We're here to help you find your support group: the people you want to brainstorm with, who you call when you need a push in the right direction, who will give you an honest opinion when you need it most. Florida Creatives Happy Hours are for professionals, hobbyists, entrepreneurs, consultants and everyone else too - no matter what your creative pursuit is. This website and our other online presences reinforce the connections you make at events, and help our members discover and publish what's new.
