DREAM BIG intensive mentorship program

January 20 – June 20, 2016

You are ready to take your business to the next level, you’re motivated and committed to success! After working with many of you during our beta program and in my private mentorship sessions, I’ve created a program to offer more 1:1 support for a very small group of clients.

  • You are a full-time, mid-career artist, designer or other creative making a living with your art, but need guidance on how to navigate the industry, leverage your art for multiple streams of income, build your teaching platform and solidify key creative partnerships to help build your brand.
  • You’ve been working in a corporate 9-5 job, longing to take the leap and start your own business full-time, but you need the support and encouragement PLUS a detailed plan of action to get you ready for a successful launch.
  • You have been making a living with your art as a side hustle or inconsistently and  have the skills to DIY your design, promotion and marketing but need a step-by-step roadmap, tips, inspiration and guidance.
  • You are an “ideas” person and have an unlimited number of lists, plans and goals, but you need help on where to start.
  • You’ve written a book or have a book idea and need help putting together a plan to market, sell and promote your product while creating your author platform.
  • You’ve worked through my creative business e-courses, brainstormed numerous ideas and you are committed to REALLY LAUNCHING your business and generate revenue from your art in various income streams, but you need help narrowing your focus.

As a member of this very elite group, you will have the resources to grow your creative business and feel confident to take the leap. You’ll also be part of a team that will support each other in a collaborative mastermind group.  In the DREAM BIG program, you’ll have access to the tools needed to set goals, create a plan of action, a roadmap to launch and focus on building your creative business.  You’ll research and design a plan to make money from your art or creative passions.
