Who Should Attend

This program is tailored for creative entrepreneurs and small business owners such as:

  • writers,
  • authors,
  • artists,
  • craftspeople,
  • photographers,
  • chefs

and other entrepreneurs who feel that creativity is one of their core values.

This program works well for people who are still working on fine-tuning a business concept that hasn’t launched yet. However, it works even better for business owners who are at a point in their business where they feel the need to refocus their marketing strategies to take them to the next level.


How You’ll Benefit

yipee By the time the program is over, you will have completed a first draft of your business/career plan and received feedback from both the group and me on the key components.

You will have a clear focus on where you want to take your business and the action steps you’ll need to take to get you there over the next 12 months.

You will feel more relaxed about the future of your business because you will have a clear plan of action that is written down to guide you. You will be prepared to make strategic decisions when new opportunities present themselves, knowing when to say “yes” or “no” depending on whether the opportunity takes you closer to or further from your goals.

You will also, more than likely, have a group of like minded friends who can support and encourage you as you take your business to the next level.
