This is why I lead this course
As a professional musician with a degree in performance from Berklee College of Music, I know what it’s like to grind it out, trying to “make it” with a career in the arts. What starts as an exciting adventure, can get real tough real quick. The experience of the “real world” crashing into your dreams can stop anyone in their tracks. It can make you feel like it was a mistake to go for a life as a working artist in the first place.
I’ve been a full time touring musician in an original eco-justice rock band, a freelance music teacher, and a wedding band hired gun. I’ve also hauled heavy furniture for a moving company and drove a truck for a non-profit construction business to pay the bills. In other words, I know how tough it can be to be a working artist, and I know how tough it can be to have to do anything else to make ends meet.
Like many creative people, I’d rather just not have to deal with money. The thought of balancing a budget (if you even have a budget) or doing taxes can be literally painful. But the truth is, without the skills to handle money with ease it becomes very very difficult to be creative. It wasn’t until I started working with a coach that I found a way of using my creative energy to transform my money game for the better. This actually freed me up to do much more of what I love, and build a business around my passion.
It breaks my heart to see so many brilliant creative people working their asses off and still struggling just to make ends meet, or giving up on their creative passion altogether because they’re resigned to the idea that it just doesn’t pay. I’m leading this course because I know how much the world needs your creative gifts right now, and I see how much could be possible if struggling with money wasn’t holding back this generation of artists.
The “struggle” is real (but does it have to be?)
Why do creative people struggle so much with money?
-Art just doesn’t pay
-Money chores (creating a budget, doing taxes, etc.) are literally the worst
-Money gets in the way of our true creativity, we’re in it for the love of the art not the money anyway
-We don’t want to sell out.
Here’s the thing: when you continue to struggle with money, it drains your energy and limits what you can achieve creatively. The experience can be frustrating at best. At worse you become resigned to the idea that it’s just not possible to thrive financially while following your passion.
What if the only thing missing was the skillset to bring your creative brilliance to your money game?
What would be possible if you could bring some ease to your finances without sacrificing your artistic vision?
This pay-what-you-can online course will give you the skills you need to use the energy of money to fuel your creative career.
What you’ll get:
-A new relationship with money that supports your creative vision and lets you see new possibilities to thrive
-A shift in mindset about money that allows you to move past the worry and frustration that get in the way of being “in the flow”
-Some practical and powerful money management skill-sets that support what’s important to you as an artist
-A method of bringing your creativity into your money game, so that you get paid for your art
-Group coaching from a rigorously trained coach to move past any “blocks” you might have about money (and let’s face it, we all have a few!)
-Guidance and advice from a seasoned entrepreneur about how you can build a business from scratch doing what you love
-The support of a dynamic group of peer artists who will cheer you on and celebrate your success
This course is for you if:
-You’re a musician, painter, performer, writer, film-maker, etc. and you want to find a way to make money with your art
-You’re a creative person who avoids the topic of money all-together, and you see that avoidance is ’s no longer working for you, but you don’t know where to start
-You’re interested in making money with your art but are worried about “selling out”
-You would love to be making money with your craft but you’re frustrated because it just doesn’t pay
-You’re working a day job that you hate, because there’s just no way to make ends meet doing what you love
- You’re sick of living month to month and want to figure out how to make your lifestyle more sustainable
This course may not be for you if:
-You’re looking for the “secret” of getting rich without working hard
-You’re already making all of the money you want doing what you love, and spending it in a way that feels great
I’m offering this program on a pay-what-you-can basis, meaning your monthly investment can be whatever is authentic for you. I ask that you find a price that is not a hardship, but is enough of an investment that you have “skin in the game” in order to support you to get full value out of this course.
What price would be a “stretch” but not a hardship, and would eliminate the temptation to not participate 100%?
This 6 month course consists of 24 training and coaching calls, or 48 hours of real-time training and coaching (plus recordings, materials, and unlimited email and facebook support). The cost of this if we were working 1-on-1 would be $4800-$8600
Doing this in a group format allows me to charge a fraction of the cost, and let you pick the price. Suggested rates are $50/month, $100/month, or $150/month, but you have the option to pick whatever price is right for you at this time.
