You are not producing an event — you are creating a community. You are not “marketing” — you are building relationships. When you shift from “selling tickets” to “building a tribe” you will see a huge shift in your success as an event producer, musician, workshop leader or conference producer. This will also make a huge difference if your business is a product or a service.
