Tuesdays Together Miami had their first meeting June of 2015. It was just one month after the Rising Tide Society hosted its first set of meetups. I went to my first meeting in October of 2015. It was absolutely amazing. I found out about it because I saw 2 friends of mine, a photographer and a graphic designer, in a group photo together on Instagram and Facebook. After that, I joined and never looked back.

They host local meetups worldwide. Each group location is called Tuesdays Together + city name. You can find one near you on their map of TuesdaysTogether chapters site.

Tuesdays Together Miami meet once a month on a Tuesday. The main purpose is for local creative business owners to support and encourage one another. Each month there is a topic set by the leaders of Rising Tide that is discussed at the meetings. We talk about things related to starting and running a creative business. Some of the topics have been SEO, Pinterest, Protecting Your Business, Social Media, Workflow, Client Experience, Business Planning, Branding, and much more. We are provided a resource guide with tips and everyone chimes in with their knowledge and questions.

I try to attend each month but there has been occasions where I am unable to. For example, one time I was out of town visiting Charleston, SC. You can see photos from that trip on the Charleston South Carolina blog post. 

Our neighbor by chapter is the Tuesdays Together Fort Lauderdale. We have done a Tuesdays Together Miami + Fort Lauderdale joint quarterly meetings together. There was one in which we had the Rising Tide Co-Founder & Head of Community at Honeybook, Natalie Franke. It was absolutely amazing to meet her in person. She’s one of the reasons this community came about along with the co-founders that helped create it.
