    Who Should Attend?

    This event is for any creative entrepreneur who wants an increase in revenue, confidence, and perceived value in 2022. It is especially for those who understand that at the collective value of design depends on individuals developing their credibility and inner authority to claim and maintain that coveted proverbial seat at the table.  This applies most to the creative business owner who personally earns less than $200,000 annually with a desire for more.

    Get More

    Solopreneur

    You want to be more than a freelancer but still do most of the work yourself. Your primary goals right now are to create stable income without killing yourself and doing great work for clients who respect you. Likely making less than $200,000 annually, you may also still be charging by the hour and subcontracting.

    Micro-Boutique Owner

    You are making $200,000+ in revenue while presenting to the world as a small team through some combination of partners, contractors, or employees. Your internal processes and client projects have both increased in complexity. Adding team may have come at the expense of your personal income and confidence. 

    Who Should Attend?

    Solopreneur

    You want to be more than a freelancer but may or may not have any interest in building a team. Your primary goal is to create stable income without killing yourself and while doing great work for clients who respect you. You are making less than $200,000 annually such that you are not a peer to your ideal client. If you are making significantly less than that, you are probably also struggling with clients who still treat you like a pixel pushing hired gun. You know that you can do better but don't have a clear vision for how or any support to help you through the hard days of self-doubt. 

    Micro-Boutiques

    You've crossed the magic $200,000 revenue goal and/or begun to create a small team to support your efforts through some combination of partners, contractors, or employees. Your internal processes and client projects have both increased in complexity. You are having to pay close attention to systems and structure while juggling new business development as well as client and project management.  If adding team came at the expense of your personal income, you may also be struggling with self-doubt and imposter syndrome when dealing with employees and clients. 

    Studios & Agencies

    Above $1M in revenue and/or 15 employees, you are placing more emphasis on leadership development and systems to support internal efficiencies and collaboration within clear role definitions. This includes support of the entire leadership team as well as  recruitment support during rapid growth. Focus remains of ensuring personal wealth for owners and financial profitability for businesses. Early attention is given to formulating potential exit strategies and create systems with the correct end goals in mind. Content and promotion focuses on positioning business brands as a brand distinctively separate from any individual.

    Seasoned Leaders

    Once goals have been accomplished and your studio/agency has been sold or shuttered, there is often a return to solopreneurship consulting with a greater sense of purpose. This is the time to get paid handsomely for strategic client consulting as well as for imparting wisdom to the next generation building on your success.  If you are interested in helping the next generation flourish by sharing your brain trust of lessons learned and niche expertise, we can work together to define your unique offer and identify the audience that needs you most.

    Key benefits 
    of doing this important work

    The ultimate benefit to every client who invests in working with me is increased the freedom that comes from improving their financial stability. That freedom might be to work less and spend more time with people you love or to give more in support of causes you care passionately about. It might also just be the freedom to say an easy no with dignity and self-respect when a client undervalues you. On the way to those things, our clients tell us that they gain greater clarity about the tangible value they deliver, more certainty of themselves as equals in any negotiation, and the confidence to hold bolder visions for their businesses and their lives. 

    Clarity

    When you become clear about your value, clients respond accordingly. 

    Certainty

    Authority is inner work based more in claiming equality than earning it.

    Confidence

    Inner confidence radiates clarity and certainty that makes others feel safe.

    The Intention to Prosper

This presentation has been given to various AIGA Chapters under the current name as well as The Intention to Profit and Name Your Niche
