Coaching

You don't need  a business degree to develop a business based on your creative passion, but you do need a practical plan and the tools to make it work.  My business coaching will help you turn your  creativity into a profitable business that meets your financial, personal, and artistic goals.  Each step of the process is designed specifically for artists, using language and examples that creative people understand.  Working with me you will learn how to develop a strategy, write a  business plan, and take the steps needed to  implement your  idea. 

Whether you’re just starting out or if you’ve been in business for years and you want to take your business to the next level, these are the key parts of your business that you need to feel certain and confident about.

The coaching process starts with a discussion of your business, creative, and personal goals and an assessment of your business. From that assessment we'll identify key topics from which to focus in the following areas.
