FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the VIP Resource Vault?


HMB has spend years compiling resources for our members in efforts of cutting down the time it takes to look up certain templates, ideas and go to skills. WE have done that work for you and are still building the best library there is for makers, artists, and creatives alike. You will get access to this library as a part of the benefits of joining HMB! The VIP Resource Vault is an invite-only Google Folder with various topics.




What happens during a strategy session with Art Mom?


Strategy sessions are just that! We will dive deep into any pain points or challenges that are hindering your artwork or business and with a pre-written agenda, you will decide what the topic of conversation is. I will document the ideas and strategies that come up during our Zoom call together in a shared Google Doc so that we can track your improvement, take action on any items that were brought up, and resume working on your goals for the next session. These calls are invaluable to the success of your business because it allows you an accountability partner along with someone who's had first hand experience in this field to bounce off of with new perspective.




Where will HMB meet?


In person within the Brooklyn bounds or in the virtual space!




What do we do during meetups?


Awesome question! We do it all personal to business and experiment with new topics that the collective wants to explore. Sample Agenda for each meetup: - Ice breaker - Announcements - Focus Topic or Guest Expert joins us - Share Takeaways - Closeout Family Photo (yes even over zoom)




How do we connect in between meetups?


Our mission is to create LONG LASTING relationships, sometimes even friendships! We utilize each other as the HUMAN resources that we are and pool together our expertise into the middle of our collective. You will have the opportunity to interact on your own through any avenue and connect, along with weekly virtual check-ins in our private DM group.




Do I have to attend all meetups?


The quick answer is YES! Our contract states you should plan on attending at least 80% of meetups. All dates are pre-determined when you join (so months in advance) and are only 90min. long. The only way a collective can truly be a collective is by showing up, being present, engaging and sharing. We operate under the assumption everyone is committed to our family, sisterhood, tribe and enjoy being together whenever possible. Its the amazing support of it's members that the community thrives off of and the experience is unlike any other because of this. We understand shit happens and we completely understand that but please make adjustments in advance so you can show up for each other.

You will receive an email confirmation with an invoice that you have been accepted as a member by September 18th. Payment must be made before our first meetup by September 20th. If you have not made payment by then we will continue with our waitlist to give someone else the opportunity to join.




Do I have to live/work in Brooklyn?


No. Although we strive to provide hyper local resources, we have opened up our collective to ALL of NYC. However, if you forsee yourself not being able to make our events or meetups please reconsider applying, as they will all take place in Brooklyn.




Does HMB only accept womxn-identifying applicants?

As a womxn's collective, HMB welcomes folks from all walks of life and is a safe zone for BIPOC folks and anyone along the LGBTQIA+ and gender identity spectrum.




How do I drop in on a meetup?


Above on this page, specify which month you’d like to drop in on and make a payment through the PayPal button on the “Drop-In” selection. This is the best option for those who want to get an idea for how the collective functions. There are no refunds or transactions between months/meetups.




Do I have to commit to the entire year?


YES! Our community THRIVES on long lasting relationships and involvement, so it is extremely important to the collective that you are engaged at meetings, in between meetings when we are chatting & for any events we plan together! If this doesnt sound awesome to you, shoot me a message and we can chat about whether it is the right fit for you.




Can I cancel my membership early because I cannot attend meetups?


If you cancel early you will not receive a refund and you will be responsible the remaining balance of the membership cost. Each spot is spoken for in advance and is clearly stated in our member terms. If you cannot make the meetups it is important for you to consider that PRIOR to joining. We understand things change but its 90 minutes each month that are scheduled months in advance on a public calendar.
