Wix Playground Presents:

Career Therapy Working Through Uncertainty

As we dust ourselves off and move forward from the past year, we’ve gathered a panel of top designers working across diverse mediums and locations to talk about how their careers have been affected, and how we can prepare to take our next steps. We’ll kickoff with an open-to-all panel discussion, before breaking out into invitation-only campfire sessions, each tackling a different topic — choose your own adventure.

The K Records Model

What does success really look like for you, and how can you take actionable steps to achieving (and getting paid) for it?
