"This a letter of thanks to member Liz K. My computer kept telling me that my time and date was incorrect. I knew from past experience that it was the battery. Liz suggested that I go to Radio shack to buy a new one. This I did and found that they were all out of them. However, I found a PC place on Teaneck Road that had a battery. I installed it and pooof, nothing worked. I thought that I had fried the whole bloody computer. Once again, Liz came to my rescue. She suggested that perhaps the new battery that I bought was faulty. Sure enough, that was the problem. Thank heaven for networking."

"The best thing about NJ Creatives is the news you get when mingling with your peers. Like who is looking to hire, who pays well, and where things are moving. You get to read the pulse of free-lancing."
"I wasn't sure how to start my business. Then I found NJ Creatives could not only help me organize, but also keep me current on ways to bill and collect fees."

"NJ Creatives members who don't work in my style will tell a client: let me give you the name of a friend who does that. They recommend me."
"NJ Creatives makes me more valuable to my clients because I can draw on a pool of writers, designers, and artists. It's like having a support network, plus a sounding board."
"The greatest benefits of NJ Creatives are the ongoing contacts at monthly meetings and on committees. Nothing beats tackling common problems together."
"I joined to network and to enlarge my contacts in New Jersey. I wanted to be less dependent on New York."
"Networking is the most valuable benefit of membership, better than the directory listing or anything else."

"The website is great, but the most important part of NJ Creatives is the people-they share their experiences."
