Designers, makers, and creatives let’s work together to start and grow businesses that command the attention of local and global audiences.
We’re not born knowing how to weave creativity and business together. You may find you need support sewing up the gaps in your business knowledge and business skills.
Designers, makers, creators, entrepreneurs: I have nothing but hope and respect for you. I have stood where you stand and know what it’s like to weave your way through a messy, unintuitive, perplexing world.
Becoming a creative entrepreneur is one of the most courageous things you can do. At a time when there is so much to do and consider, you may be left feeling you have no choice but to put aside some of the things that could propel you on your way.
Without guidance you find yourself going in circles, making the same mistakes every new or growing creative business makes, blocked from breaking through to realize your vision.
You may question your very dream.
Letting someone into your business can be hard until you reach the point where the hours in your day are no longer enough to address all the things that come with founding a business. And the more your business grows, the more important it becomes to recognise when true expertise is worth the investment.
I bring creative business experience, industry knowledge and a fresh pair of eyes to help you see things from another perspective. Sometimes we get so caught up in the vision for our businesses that we can become blind to what those outside the process are seeing or can contribute.
When your plan and ideas are clear and clearly effective you can go back to doing what you do best, creating exceptional products.
