The Creator

Creators bring massive value to our community through their ability to innovate and inspire.  Creators do exactly what it says on the tin, they create!  They create new businesses, they create new ways of reviving old businesses, and they create havoc!

Building Your Power Team

Creators need to create.  They don’t need to lead their teams and they certainly don’t need to manage the financial aspects of the business.  In fact, dealing with detail can block the flow that Creators are famous for.  The Community will seek to connect Creators with Supporters and Accumulators, to lead the team and manage the details respectively.
