Consulting & mentoring for creative entreprenuers.

Photo by Associate Tina Blanco

I'm thrilled to share 15+ years of creative entrepreneurship with you…and I'd be honored to work with you. My consulting work is designed for all creative entrepreneurs including special workshops for photographers, book-lovers, and designers.

Over my many years of entrepreneurial practice, I've gained a wealth of knowledge through my humble successes and a few epic failures. I love building businesses, making art, sharing, and helping serious creatives make and achieve goals.

Questions about sales & marketing, branding, pricing, scaling your business, staffing & associates, production, strategy, film vs. digital, vendor management, getting published, destination weddngs, book and product offerings? Or, maybe you need help with productivity and time management to set the right actions in motion to make the right change. I'd love to offer my know-how, help solve problems, inspire change, and cheer you on to a path towards success. Join me at my limited annual workshops, weekly coaching calls, or a one-on-one intensive session...


Workshops

Making Books Work.  Join me at a small, intimate workshop. I'll share the unique, proprietary fine art book product lines I've created to help propel my studio to the next level. You'll have complete access to my entire design and production system. Vendors, design how-to, pricing, and case-studies will be shared to help guide you to making books work for you. Workshop will take place at my Chicago studio and limited to 10 participants per workshop.

 

Coaching

Want to chat? Have some burning questions you'd like to ask? I'd love to listen and help you. I take four 1-hour scheduled Coaching Session calls per week.
