chapter one: purpose

Do you feel like you're drifting around, not getting anywhere? Do you feel that screaming match between the #girlbosses and #fineart folks, wishing you could forge your own path your own way?

It's time for you to create a course that actually motivates you and leads to your most exciting-to-you dreams with Purpose.

What does Chapter One look like for you?

  • Shut down the noise and screaming matches. How? Take my favorite, most life-changing personality exercises to know what fires you up.

  • Learn how much you really don't care about goals. What? Yes! And instead, learn what motivates you to achieve and live in your dreams.

  • Get rocked by my famous Assured + Well exercises. These exercises have been the fire-starter to so many radically successful ideas.

  • Forget everything you knew before and make a better plan. Analyze and create a richer path towards a dream that inspires you.

chapter two: design

You've applied every plan or program and yet, no else's method to success is working for you? Some strategies are helpful, but you're still in the dog-paddle of business dying for some air and margin...help!

That's because it's their method. It's time to grow up and design your own course that actually works for you!

What does Chapter Two look like for you?

  • Forget 'ideal client' and simply identify who you can best serve (and who will value your work) with my unique strategies. Use proven research, not a wish list, to find your tribe.

  • Know how to serve, in this season. Decide what products and services your business provides that works with this season. Simple and diverse.

  • Develop a Business Model that works for you. I'm talking time and money. Scheduling hacks, confident pricing, effective systems, etc.

  • Define your complete Business Model, then pitch it to me Shark Tank-style! Yep, it's going to be fun. Plus, you'll get immediate, powerful feedback from me during our 1:1 Coaching Session.

Plus, meet with your Accountability Partner as you work through these exciting modules! Keep scrolling to learn more about this unique program offering!

Your partner may be from a different skill set than your own or a completely different market so you can encourage each other honestly and well—no weird comparison vibes, just support.

You'll connect at the Mastermind Retreat, then once again virtually for each chapter. And don't worry, I'll provide prompts for each 'Study Session' so you'll have a guide to structure your meetings, not wasting any time and getting closer and closer to your goals!

Chapter Three: Story

You have created a solid brand, amazing products and services, yet all you hear are crickets. Do you want to bridge the gap between you and your customers without being sales-y or living on social media?

Let me show you how to hit sales goals sans stalking social media. And no, this is not a joke. This is real life...and it could be your real life.

What does Chapter Three look like for you?

  • Connect with copy that sells. Learn how to say what you want to say and book more sales on your website, blog and emails. It's as simple as that.

  • Access my game-changing Off the Grid Marketing Guide. I'll show you how to approach IRL Marketing and why it's the most important method for your business, not Instagram...or Pinterest...or whatever is trendy now.

  • Optimize your time in online marketing with my Social Media Intensive. Social media is a powerful tool, let's keep it that way—drama-free, comparison-free, life-sucking-free—and make the most of our time on it!

  • Define your Marketing Blueprint. Just like your Business Model, you will walk away from this chapter with your customized outline, not someone else's, for effective marketing based on your needs, time and goals.

Plus, meet with me in our 45-minute 1:1 Coaching Session. Yep, unlike other programs, you get 1:1 access with me! Keep scrolling to learn more!

Not something you see in your typical online course? Well, I'm not your typical educator.

I care about you. And your fears, and goals, and insecurities and victories. And I want to be sure you're taken care of throughout Editor's Course. 

So, you get two virtual 1:1 sessions with me. The first one is 45-minutes where we'll have our Shark Tank-inspired review of your Business Blueprint during month three. The second is 20-minutes where we'll review your Marketing Plan in month four.

And in both, you can ask me anything! I'm here for you.

 

You know the drill. But wait, there's more!

Like, really, there is. Keep scrolling.

 
 

Chapter Four: Flow

You know what you should do, but don't know how to maintain that success. Are you in a creative rut, ready to level up not just in your business, but in your work?

Here's the deal. You are a creative business owner.

That means you need to know business fundamentals and creative philosophies. Most people teach one or the other. In this chapter, the two get married and have lots of success babies.

What does Chapter Four look like for you?

  • Never hit a creative block ever again, like ever, with my program The Creative Well. You'll learn the science of creativity so you can be more effective with your production time in the studio or office.

  • Learn how to take a sabbatical. No, a sabbatical is not time to secretly work on your next project. Let me show you how to recover (and why) so you can become a better creative business owner.

  • Understand how to grow, diversify, scale and level up in your business. Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em—basically all you need to know about growth!

  • Know the keys steps to becoming a leader. Want to become a boss, a speaker, teacher or leader? Let's break down the steps to successfully leading!

  • Create your own Business Playbook. My secret smart hustle strategy.

Do you crave to create more than a pretty social media feed, more than nice work and a cool brand? Do you want to leave a legacy?

You can. And it doesn't matter how big or small your business, or famous or anonymous your work is—you can create something meaningful, simply.
