A 6-week course for INDIE-preneurs who want to make a difference, make their mark, and make a damn-good living.
Are you a creative entrepreneur, or, as I call them, creative indie-preneur? If you’re a freelancer, a filmmaker, a writer, a designer, an artisan, a crafter an artist or other creative maker and doer, then watch the video to find out about the alarming chasm I discovered in the creative entrepreneurial world, and how to bridge it successfully to make more money…happily, contendedly, purposefully.

You know you were put on this planet to bring all the creative ideas in your head and heart to life, to inspire and share with others. You know that because the thought of not creating ‘your thang’ gives you anxiety and heart palpitations, reaching for a pint of Haagen Daas and your favorite comforter to hide under.
You know there are people out there who not only want, but who need your gifts in their lives to be entertained or challenged, or perhaps to escape if only for a little while… or to connect.
You know all of that but you’re stuck. You haven’t been able to move the needle in awhile, if at all, and you’re wondering if maybe you should keep or find that day job…that “backup plan” that “those people” keep talking about.
Here’s a quick checklist. Take a look. Do you find yourself checking any of these off?
___ Your online marketing isn’t working like it used to.
___ Your social networks aren’t really working together to find new buyers.
___ You feel like you’re talking to the same people over and over.
___ You feel like you’re only reaching your fellow creatives and friends instead of the right audience.
___ You’re doing what works for others, but it isn’t working for you.
___ You’re not even sure what to say sometimes online, or perhaps you feel like a broken record or like you’re begging for sales.
___ You know your work would inspire and captivate the audience…but you can’t seem to grow your sales.
___ You don’t know how to keep interest in you and your work between new launches/releases/pieces.
___ You know social media and talking to your audience is important, but you can barely find the time to create, much less be online for hours on end.
___ Your sales drop between new launches/releases, but you want to do this for a living and need for your sales to be consistent or better yet — increase.
___ Your confidence and happiness ebb and flow in direct proportion to how much money is in your bank account. When the funds are low, the doubt demons and fear feed your anxiety about your worth and purpose.
___ You want to be able to live your life as a full-time indie-preneur. You want more freedom to travel, inspire your children, impress your spouse or family and live the life you know you were meant to live.
Any of these sound familiar?
I’ve been where you are. I had a grasp of how it should work, but kept hitting a wall in terms of truly finding the right and new audience that would fall in love with what I had to offer over and over again. I had the smarts, but couldn’t figure out where the disconnect really was.
Now, I’m the one on the red carpet with celebrities. Now I’m the center of the professional photo shoots. Now, I’m the one quoted in international press. Now I’m the one who books multiple vacations a year.
I am so grateful today that I have been able to not only figure out how to bridge the gap, but I’m now able to consistently bring in well over six figures each year with little marketing whatsoever. My business has been thriving almost exclusively from word-of-mouth alone. That’s the kind of REAL community- and business-building that all the advertising and marketing in the world try to buy every day.
Forget the “backup plan.” It’s time to burn the boats and stop looking behind you. It’s time to forge ahead with your talents and share them with the right people so that you can inspire, educate, share and grow. It’s time for you to put all the missing pieces together FOR GOOD, so that you can make the income you need and have the confidence and knowledge to know that you can do so again and again.
I invite you to join me for six weeks that can change your business and life for good.
I’ll be hosting two live calls per week — one focused solely on the business of being an indie-preneur and how to increase your ideal buyers and sales though inspired marketing and brand influence; the second call of the week will be focused entirely on mindset — we will examine your relationship with money, time, yourself, your environment, your community and how you can turn fear into fuel to set your life ablaze.
✓ Learn how to design the impactful brand, platform and life you desire through the power of knowing what it is you want, what you believe in and why.
✓ Discover the secret few truly know about how you can really stand out online & in life.
✓ Understand how and when to find, lift, and share your voice through captivating content – whether it’s simply a status update, or prose, video and photos that create the NOT BORING story of you, your books and how you can help others.
✓ Walk away each and every call with actionable items that you can implement NOW that will help you use your powers for good AND still build your bank account. Get your spiritual and mental self in alignment with the business needs of you and your family.
✓ Take advantage of a Social Deviant whose 20 (cough * cough) years in the marketing, promotions, live event, digital, advertising and entertainment worlds landed her multi-six and seven-figure creative clients, C-level contacts, A-List authors…and free booze (that’s me, in case you were wondering).
✓ Get access to growing private Facebook group to share, ask questions, and collaborate.
✓ Access to additional print materials and surveys to help you map out and achieve your goals is also included.
Just as you become better at what you do with every new work you create, mastery takes compulsive, habitual, repetitive passion. You taking this class shows your commitment to your long-term mastery.
This IS your chance to turn “I can’t” into iconic for you – to raise your insider status by building influence in your community.
You’ll finally “get it.” You’ll understand how to create a powerful brand, voice and message that builds on itself over and over.
You will understand how to truly grow your community, and have fun doing it.
And what I promise you is this — I will shoot straight. I will explain, to the best of my ability, the formula for making this happen. I will answer every question with open ears and open heart.
