Design Your Business
The art of business planning for creatives: personalized, live classes over 5 months.
I teach creatives methods and processes for you to structure your specific idea, everything from sharing your voice and funding your venture to finding your audience and developing your product or service.
Classes are on a rolling basis, starting the 3rd week of every month.
Module 1: Design an Idea 2.0 (defining your story)
Module 2: Color an Avatar (targeting an audience)
Module 3: Construct a Line (developing a product/service)
Module 4: Print a Cause (funding your idea)
Classes are on a rolling basis, starting the 3rd Sunday of every month from 5:00pm-9:30pm CET and runs for 5 months. Every Monday night at 6:00pm CET) there is a 1-hour office-hour window for questions (live online, link will be provided).
Your total time commitment is 4-6 hours per week, outside of outside assignments. The more you move forward your own idea, before each monthly class, the better.
The learning in each week's business planning class for creatives builds on itself, and we hope you can tune in each week to learn and ask questions in real time. That said, each lesson will be recorded and you'll have access to the recordings for 30 days, in case you miss a lesson or wish to play it back. Office hour sessions will not be recorded.
Are there any prerequisites?
There are no prerequisites except a willingness show up to the monthly class, weekly office hours, to have an open mind, and smile! If you have an idea and a desire to learn, explore and develop, you’ll do great.
Are there any extra costs?
There are no other costs unless you opt to buy recommended books or resources outside of class.
What is the refund/cancellation policy?
You have 10 days after purchase to request a refund. After that timeframe, no refunds will be given.

You can pay in full or with a monthly payment plan.

Tell me more
I love helping inspire you and your business ideas! You have an idea that you've been thinking about for a while now right? But, somehow this and that got in the way. Now is a great time to untangle your thoughts and finally structure it with a realistic plan. I originally developed this class for designers. Have a look at the contents, it's perfect for any creative thinker with an idea who is ready for an introspective look at their next steps....figuring out 'the how' of their idea...learning in a fun creative way. I created these modules based on the most efficient way to start your project.
You will leave the class ready to publish your website; keywords and marketing ideas to get the word out; crystallization of what your product/service looks like; a way to fund your idea; understanding of the pricing you'll offer and specifically who you'll offer it to; and of course, I'll be there for support and feedback.
