Coaching for Creative Business Owners

Coaching for Creative Business Owners

from 150.00

As a maker or creative business owner, it's common to feel stuck, like you're working in a vacuum, or investing in the wrong things. Well, in our work with hundreds of makers and business owners around the world, we've gotten pretty good at helping folks un-stuck themselves. Whether you're launching a new product, growing your wholesale business, or refining your work more generally, we can provide a fresh pair of eyes, a sympathetic ear, and some hard-earned business acumen. In our sessions together, we'll make sure you're spending your time and energy in ways that pay off and making choices that make sense for your unique goals and situation. It's like that new haircut feeling, but for your business. 

The single session is great for very specific questions or for general direction and tips. The session includes the following:

  • One 45-minute Call (via phone, Skype or Google Hangout)
  • Pre-Session Questionnaire
  • Call Summary
  • List of Resources mentioned during call
  • Reflection Worksheet
     

The two-call option is a great for a maker wanting a little more feedback as a project is pulled together, e.g. outreach materials or line development. The session includes the following:

  • Two 45-minute calls (via phone, Skype or Google Hangout)
  • Pre-Session Questionnaire
  • Mid-Session Homework sheet with action items (after the first call)
  • Call Summaries (after first and second calls)
  • List of Resources mentioned during calls (after second call)
  • Reflection Worksheet (after second call)
     

Both calls are scheduled during the registration process with our online scheduling tool.
