Business Skills for Creatives

One of the biggest challenges creatives face is viewing what they do as a business. It’s hard to separate yourself from the things you create. The reality is, if you want to earn some money from your craft, whether that is writing, music or art, you need to behave in a more businesslike fashion in order to be taken seriously and for people to actually pay you for your time, skills and creations.

I struggled with this myself for years before I fell into a day job training start up businesses.

Now, my world as a Business Coach has joined my world as an Author and I’m passionate about bringing you into it so that you too can create a sustainable income by doing what you love.

Let’s face it, creatives don’t do what they do for money, but with some professional input you can earn money from your creative projects.

Is it time you started to invest in yourself as a creative entrepreneur?

As an experienced, professional Business Coach and insatiable creative, I’m here to help.

I offer workshops, talks and 1 to 1’s on crucial topics small businesses, freelancers and budding entrepreneurs need to know.

My specialist areas are:

  • Introduction to social media, for creatives
  • Social media: Pinterest
  • Social Media: Twitter

I’m mindful that creatives are often strapped for cash but my specialism is group training – I charge by the hour, so why not get a group together and spread the costs?

I’m based in Bristol UK and offer a free initial consultation.
