Build Your Creative Practice or Arts-Based Business from the Inside Out

This workshop  will help you identify what really excites you and is most important to you as a creative individual or professional. Learn how to leverage this self-awareness to better evaluate your opportunities and help you determine how and where you drive your creative practice or arts- based business moving forward.

 

You will learn how to:

  • Identify and articulate your core values and what is most fulfilling to you as a creative.

  • Clarify how this awareness can enhance your approach to goal setting & decision making.

  • Hone in on your opportunities to be more strategic moving forward.

 

Get Out of Your Head and into Action

This workshop will help you to clarify your vision for taking your creative practice or arts-based business to the next level - whatever that means to you! Transcribe your dreams and ambitions into an action plan that will set you up for success.

 

You will learn how to:

  • Focus in on what you’d really like to accomplish and solidify your motivation.

  • Identify goals and priorities that are meaningful and realistic 

  • Create a three month action plan to move forward.

 

 

Build Habits to Nurture Your Creativity and Professional Growth

 

This workshop will help you identify and establish daily and weekly routines, rituals and  habits to develop your capacity and prioritize your self-care as a creative professional.

You will learn how to:

  • Identify habits you personally need to survive and thrive as a creative.

  • Close your Habit Loop to set yourself up for success!

  • Create tools and routines to help you track, reflect and adjust moving forward.

 

Become More Focused and Productive

This workshop will help you tap into your motivation, nurture your ability to focus and be more aware of what it takes for you to show up in the best way for yourself as a creative.

 

You will learn how to:

  • Energize your commitment to goals and projects that matter to you.

  • Identify likely obstacles and distractions and build a practice of setting yourself up to facilitate your focus

  • Build time management strategies to stay on top of key priorities day-to-day and week-to-week.

 

 

Inoculate Yourself from Your Inner Critic

 

Your inner critic can prevent you from growing, taking risks and moving forward. In fact, it can stop you right in your tracks - perhaps even leave you feeling unworthy of calling yourself a “real” artist. This workshop will help you better recognize when this is happening and to be able to tap into your inner resources when you want to inject yourself with courage and confidence.

 

You will learn how to:

  • Recognize how your personal inner critic operates and when it is likely to speak up.

  • Build strategies to let go of fear and perfectionism

  • Create tools to help you consciously access your unique inner resources to better support your growth and development.


 

Put Yourself “Out There” in a Way that is Authentic and Empowering

This workshop will help you to tackle promoting yourself with increased confidence and a clearer sense of purpose. You will begin to tap into strategies that are true to you and in service of your specific goals and ambitions.

 

You will learn how to:

  • Articulate what is authentic and core to your creative practice.

  • Identify where, why, what you could put “out there” to whom?

  • Focus in on your key messaging and set yourself up to get “out there” with increased confidence.
