Business Academy for Creative Entrepreneurs
What is a creative business consultant (and why do I need one)?
Simply put, a creative business consultant works with creative entrepreneurs. More specific to me and my coaching practice, I work predominantly with women looking to replace the corporate 9-5 and make a living leveraging their unique talents, skills, or intellect. As a Creative Business Consultant, I focus on you and your business. I want you to be the best leader for your creative business. Achieving that involves establishing the entrepreneurial mindset and routines necessary to support your business and the processes to get your business off the ground and ultimately fuel your business growth. Your business must align with who you are, so I’m also here to hold you accountable to building a business that matches your personal and professional aspirations and what you envision for your lifestyle and career.
I’m not an entrepreneur but have a business idea in the works. Is this for me?
Yes! If you are a creative woman looking to replace your 9-5 or have already left to launch your business, the Business Academy for Creative Entrepreneurs is for you! Developed specifically for early and emerging entrepreneurs, the program is designed to help you hone in on your business idea and build the tools and resources you need to successfully launch, and ultimately, scale. Plus, you’ll build relationships with other like-minded creatives, and what better way is there to gain the confidence, knowledge, and support to build your creative business than alongside other creative entrepreneurs?!
What is a creative entrepreneur?
Creative entrepreneurs are people who use their creative talents, skills, and intellect to build a business and make a living. They are not limited to artists or designers but encompass several different industries and roles because creativity is limitless and knows no bounds.
In the Business Academy for Creative Entrepreneurs, we work with people interested in launching service-baced* creative businesses. (*see what I did there?!)
Are you obsessed with spatial design and running out of rooms in your own home (as well as your sister’s and your BFF’s) to transform into a private oasis? I’ve got you! Do you love to paint and dream of launching a collaborative studio for other creatives to come together and work on their craft? No problem! Do you have a way with words and want to help others with theirs? Let’s do this!
If you’ve got an idea for a new service that can leverage your creativity to turn a profit, guess what, you’re a creative entrepreneur. And you’ve found your crew because these are the people you’ll find inside the Business Academy for Creative Entrepreneurs.

Group Dynamics + Team Effectiveness
Do you offer workshops?
Yes, I offer workshops geared at helping you reach your team goals. The best way to see if we’re a good fit for one another is to reach out! In my opinion, the best result comes after a good discussion about what you’re hoping to achieve and the current dynamic you’ve got going on as a team. Then I can go away and tailor a specific offering to help you reach your unique goals rather than offer a simple cookie-cutter solution.
What’s involved with group dynamics coaching?
My work with teams is rooted in the Birkman Method which measures how personality characteristics influence behaviours, motivations and perceptions, and more specifically, how they might interact in a team setting.
Once I am engaged with your team, each member completes a Birkman Assessment and debrief to establish a solid understanding of their own unique behaviours, needs and perspectives. This forms the foundation for the next step where we come together as a group to look at how the combined Birkman DNA impacts the overall dynamic and effectiveness of the team and talk about ways to amplify the things that contribute to team success and minimize the things that counteract it.
Through our work together, the team will have a better sense of what makes them tick on an individual level and also understand the value of their interpersonal relationships and how to communicate in a way that fuels innovation and accelerates leadership capabilities.
The end result…a high-performing team that engages in healthy conflict, true collaboration, effective communication and a desire to succeed together.
How much does it cost?
It’s tough to say since I don’t know much (or anything at all!) about your team at this point! But I’m happy to chat with you about it.
Can you write for me?
You bet I can! Unless you’re a copywriter or communications professional yourself, you probably didn’t go into business to write all your company flyers, web pages, email templates, brochures, customer packages…shall I go on…? I think you get it.
I can either edit what you’ve already got or start from scratch. Of course, I’d have to get to know you and your goals a little, but that’s all part of the fun!
