As part of Design Week Vancouver, GDC/BC is continuing its popular Business of Design series.

What would your work and life feel like if they were a shade or two brighter?

If you finished all projects on time and on budget? If you had a sustainable, healthy bank balance? If your clients loved you at the beginning, middle, and end of a project? If your team rooted for you throughout the process, too? Pretty freaking great. That’s what.

Join, Rob Leadley of Measure Co. and Rachel & Travis Gertz from Louder Than Ten in a session discovering what works for a happy business and happy life. Together, you will tackle these questions and leaved armed with tools to improve the management of your projects and the operations of your business. In this session, you will take off the cover and explore the guts of your business; how fine tuning your operations can level out your bank balance, and how overcoming fear in our relationships and communication means you can take back your life—and our companies. Once you learn the core steps, you should be loving your business, living your life, and making good money. Your business will be happier for it.
