Jaclyn Johnson Sold Out A 1,500 Person Create & Cultivate Event That Made 7 Figures with ZERO Ads
Show Notes

Jaclyn Johnson is a serial entrepreneur who launched and sold two-self funded companies before the age of 35 - her last exit was for cult favorite brand Create & Cultivate, which sold for $22 million. Create & Cultivate serves a community of more than 1 million women and is best known for their highly aesthetic in-person experiences and conferences featuring celebrities and influential leaders you know and love. Today’s case study details how they sold out their largest conference ever - a 1,500 person event that generated 7 figures in revenue between ticket sales and dreamy partnerships - all with ZERO ads. 

Jaclyn is one of my favorite mentors I’ve worked with and a branding genius. Our conversation today will give you an inside look at how Create & Cultivate sets the creative bar for in-person events so you can borrow their best ideas to sell out your next event!

By the way, join me in congratulating Jaclyn on the recent launch of her newest business venture, Maie Wines. As a special treat for our community, you can use the code PODCAST10 at drinkmaie.com to save on your first order of their single-serve wines!
