“Jumpstart revealed the path. Confab keeps you on it.” – Robert at Creative Mammals


 I couldn’t do it alone.

In the first half of my journey running Impossible Pictures, I believed I could figure it out all on my own. But then one day a wise friend said:,

“Staying inside your bubble, you can’t grow. Your bigger future is utterly wrapped up not in yourself, but others.”

Neither should you.

Until that point, all my efforts were solely focused on me connecting with clients. But my friend helped me realize that reaching out to my peers – leaders, experts, and yes, even competitors – was a source of incredible knowledge and perspective. I discovered most people in our industry were excited to help, share, and compare notes.

Why Confab?

As owners began graduating from RevThink accelerators, many asked, “What’s next?” I knew the answer was Confab: a safe space where like-minded peers could gather to learn and share with me, expert guests, and each other… on a consistent weekly basis.

I and the team at RevThink invite you: let’s confabulate!


Enrollment occurs on the first business day of each quarter. Our next enrollment day is September 1, 2021.
