How do I get an invitation to a Creative Mornings Meeting? It’s a common question … and a great one. The best way is to sign up for our e-newsletter in the top right corner of the homepage, right where Matt is pointing. (If you're viewing this on your mobile device, then Matt's WAY OFF and you'll need to scroll down to the bottom of the feed to find the signup box.) Seating is limited at CM breakfast meetings, but members of the e-Newsletter get a reminder the morning reservations open up. So, give us your e-mail and make with the clicky clicky. We’ll take it from there.

“We’re excited to support CreativeMornings and it’s mission to bring creative minds together to connect and be inspired.” - Garrett Tichy

We wouldn’t be on our way without the help of passionate people all over Charlotte. Their collective spirit attracted CreativeMornings to the Queen City. It’ll take awhile, but we’ll thank them all.

Today, we’d like highlight Garrett Tichy, co-owner of Ready at 7 (, founder of ‪#‎weloveclt‬ and one of the sponsors of our inaugural meeting on Nov. 6. Garrett has been generous with his insight, encouragement and support as we prepare for the first meeting. Thank you, sir!

It’s kismet! Check out this great interview with Alexis Jo Bruce and husband/business partner Levin Chaskey, founders of Charlotte Star Room & members of the CreativeMornings/Charlotte leadership team! If that’s not cool enough, the article was written by Page Leggett – another member of our team. Totally random, too. The interview went down before our first team meeting. But, it’s just continued proof that ‪#‎CharlotteIsCreative‬!

“Today is yours. Claim it. This life is yours. Live it.” Watch this amazing TEDx talk from Jen Band of Playing for Others and we promise … you’ll be ready for the week ahead and for her to usher in CreativeMornings Charlotte at our inaugural meeting on 11/6.

Are you creative? Of course you are. That’s a trick question. EVERYONE is creative. And, EVERYONE is welcome to CreativeMornings. We can’t wait to hang with you the first Friday of every month. ‪#‎charlotteiscreative‬

There truly is no place like home … and we’re really excited to say that LaCa Projects will be ours when we launch CreativeMornings in #CLT. Not only is the space perfect for events, LaCa’s commitment to fostering and promoting Latin American art and culture is a perfect fit for us. Their spirit and passion is a vibrant example that #CharlotteIsCreative … and we’re proud to call them “home.” If you want to see more, visit

As you sip your coffee and look at the day ahead, remember: “Everyone is Creative.” Then, go be amazing! See you in three short weeks on Nov 6! #CharlotteIsCreative

Our November theme – “Work” – has got us thinking. Everyone has a special place where they feel inspired to create. In the case of Matt Olin (@mattolincreates), our Charlotte Chapter host, it’s this 100-year old stand up desk. It used to be a ticket counter at a North Carolina train station. Now, it’s basecamp for Matt’s copywriting. (Psst … what you can’t see is Matt’s keyboard, so he can battle writer’s block with a little jam session.) Where’s your creative space? Send us a photo of your #Workspaceporn and tell us about it so we can all be jealous.
