Event Overview

If you've spent any time ogling some of the coolest start-ups in the game lately, you'll realize they have a few-- ehem-- threads in common.

They're all young bucks working hard around the clock, they all run lean ships, and they all have a tireless, exuberant passion for what they're working to create.

Budding entrepreneurs gather 'round, because we've got CEO and founder of Threadless tees Jake Nickell on the line to help you prioritize your hobbies so you can make a living doing what you love.

We'll discuss, through an example-driven presentation based on Jake's own life, how to recognize a monetizable passion when you have one, how to generate ideas for turning that passion into a hobby and actionable steps you can take to make your hobby your new dream career.

Class will end with a Q&A session, so bring plenty of yours, and leave class more motivated than ever to pursue your "hobbily" ever after.

    Truly inspiring. It was less of a step-by-step punchlist to turn passion into business, and more of a rousing speech to get off your ass and do something. But it served its purpose.

    Really cool experience at Threadless HQ. The class was a mix of conversational presentation + Q/A. Even had time for a tour at the end! I walked away feeling like Jake really gave us great, personalized insight and it was delivered sincerely. Definitely had some aha! moments in there, and would recommend for any entrepreneurial spirit.
