Community, education & accountability

for creative business owners.


Over the 10+ years we have worked in the creative community, we've seen so many creative businesses flourish and grow. We have also seen many really struggle and even close their creative businesses.

There is one key success factor for creatives who have flourished - you need to be a true CEO! Ready to grow, innovate & lead.

Ready to be your own boss? If you learn how to streamline your sales, grow your social media and be strategic with your shows, you can say good-bye to that day job and hello to more time living the life you dream of.

Imagine how it will feel to make money as a maker. To truly turn your passion into profit. 

We believe #MakersGonnaMake, and we also believe #MakersGonnaMakeMoney.
