Let's unleash your creative magic
Business can be easy, fun and free of exhausting hustle. Let me help you make the most of your skills and knowledge!
You are a business owner, blogger, craft maker, designer, artist, influencer or coach who wants to make a living doing something that feels meaningful for you. You are just starting out or you already have a business you want to succeed. You invest your time, money and effort to your business, and don't expect one-size-fits-all kind of solutions.
This coaching and consulting is designed to help you to untangle everything about craft and creativity. I will ask you questions and give you tips on planning a business with ease, creating products and services people will love, finding confidence in business and more. Anything YOU and your craft need.
This is the backbone of the coaching and consulting. What you get will be tailored for your needs from these base elements.
Before we even get started, you will get my deep diving Clarity Questionnaire. The questionnaire is full of important questions about your goals, business and career background and future, customers and competition, and values. It is designed for you to find clarity, and me to get to know you and your business and creativity needs. After you have answered the questionnaire, we can get started with the actual work.
You ask me questions, and I ask you questions. I will be your sparring partner and coach, your sounding board, your accountability partner, your cheerleader and your honest critic. Whichever is needed. You can bounce your ideas on me, get feedback and ask for guidance. What you say stays between us. You can trust me, as many others have already trusted me with their business needs.
In the end of your creative coaching, you have your own strategy for clarifying and growing your creativity, and including it in your business and career. We will put this strategy together, deciding on deadlines and timelines, important steps, required tools and whatnot. Your strategy will be completely tailored for your needs, so there's no readymade template.
I'm an illustrator, total nerd, sorcerer, expert at marketing, doodler, designer, developer, consultant and coach.
I've been self-employed, involved in a couple of startups, had my share of failures and burnouts and successes, built my business, and worked closely with other business owners for over 10 years. Throughout those years I have learned how working with something that doesn't mean anything to you is pointless and leads to failing. In order to thrive, your craft needs to feel meaningful for you.
I'm dedicated to help you to succeed, while having time to dream and enjoy all the aspects of life.
