Ahwatukee native Leanne Cairns will be hosting a business workshop in efforts to assist people who are looking to get their business up and running.

Initially, Cairns received her a bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona in civil engineering in 2005, and when she moved back to Phoenix she felt she was lacking a sense of creativity in her life.

In addition to her full-time job, Cairns founded an eco-friendly handbag business four years ago, and it became a successful side gig.

Throughout the four years of opening her own business, Cairns learned a lot about business and began networking herself.

She was approached by several people about how to start a business.

“A lot of people have these creative hobbies and don’t know how to take it to the next level,” Cairns said.

She noticed a need for a support structure for up and coming businesses to assist creative individuals so she decided to create Craft Culture, a support system for creative entrepreneurs.

“I’ve spent the past year building my networks even more, planning for a couple of my first events, and I had my very first business workshop a month ago in California,” Cairns said. “It sold out, and was amazing.”

The workshop consisted of speakers talking to the attendees about setting goals, marketing, and having a social media bass.

Audience members also were involved by participating in different Q&As about the challenges they’re facing while trying to start their business.

For now, Cairns is gearing up for her second workshop in downtown Phoenix.

“The event is a business workshop for creatives who want to turn their hobby into a profitable business. Speakers are local role models and leaders that will talk about setting goals/intentions, branding, marketing and social media,” Cairns said. “The last part of the workshop will be an interactive panel discussion, which will allow attendees to ask questions about their own business challenges. It’s definitely unique and one of a kind and new for Phoenix. I feel like Phoenix is just getting started with this stuff.”

The Craft Culture workshop will occur on Saturday, April 5 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Monorchid, 214 E. Roosevelt St. in Phoenix.

Tickets to attend the event are $157, and can be purchased at www.CraftCultureEvents.com.
