Getting the business side of your creativity sorted doesn’t need to be overwhelming. It doesn’t need to be complicated, expensive, uninspiring or too hard for creative people. In fact done right it’s smooth and systematic, motivates you to live your best creative life and frees up more time for the aspects you love about being a creator!
I combine 20 years of experience working in the arts and a strong business skills base to get you on the track to your dream creative life and business. For artists planning acts as a road map to your ultimate creative outcome and can be the difference between dreaming and delivering. It clarifies process, product and audience and ideally supports the artist to not just survive but thrive creatively and financially. Having external support in your arts business and career can give you the confidence and skills to shift your creative life to the next level.
Wondering if you need help?!
Are you full of ideas but unsure of where to start?
Do you have mountains of songs, paintings, stories, sculptures, films (or whatever your creative outlet is!) and no idea how to reach an audience?
Do you find it hard to stay focussed?
Is your marketing strategy lacklustre, scattered or non-exisitant (what strategy?!)?
Is turning your hard work into an income stream a struggle?
Would you like more time and space to create?
Are there roadblocks holding you back from creating or bringing your art to the world?
Want a fresh set of eyes on your arts-business and creative life?
Are you feeling stuck, stale or stagnant in your creative business?
Is your creative flow more of a trickle in need of a respark?
I work one on one and in groups with dedicated creatives. The focus is getting to the most heartfelt creative life vision of the creatives I work with and helping them turn that into the fuel that makes their dreams a reality.
