A supportive, community-driven environment for makers, artists, and designers that provides the knowledge, tools, and encouragement you need to grow your business like a creative founder.

Here’s what we know to be true: You are a creative founder.

You’re a maker, artist, or designer who’s building a business you’re proud of, whether full-time or as a side hustle.

Climbing the corporate ladder is not your dream—you love being able to work your way.

You pour your heart into your business and you take it seriously.

You’re in this for real—it’s not just a hobby for you. But you also take your life seriously—you’re building a business to support your life, not the other way around.

But it’s not always easy to grow your business like a founder.

You want the time and energy you spend on your business to be focused and productive—so you can get back to your dog, your kids, your friends, your life.

Instead, you end up spending a lot of effort piecing together a series of courses, communities, Facebook groups, and coaches that you hope will help move your business forward.

But they don’t always pay off—and even when they do, you still have to spend time looking for the next right step to take.

So you end up feeling like a hit-or-miss detective rather than a founder. And we want to change that.

We believe your business needs both a supportive community and a strong
foundation to grow—and we think they work best together.

Everything we offer is rooted in two things: Engaging in an encouraging community 
and growing through the Six Pillars of a Successful Creative Business:

The Six Pillars of a Successful Creative Business: Your Core + Your Client + Your Brand + Your Money + Your Call + Your Plan

Want to learn more about these Six Pillars?

Sign up below and we’ll send you a guide to each Pillar (we know you have a lot on your plate, so we’ll guide you along the way) and give you a quick win in each of those six areas—so you can make your business stronger today.


Our Community

At the heart of the Society is our Community.

This is a supportive, members-only group of women who crave ongoing
connection and encouragement. Here’s what you’ll find inside the Community:


Join groups that fit your needs without the distraction you often find in groups based on social media outlets. Curate and customize your own network based on your level of expertise and industry.


Apply to be part of a smaller, more intimate accountability group where you will interact with other creative founders on a deeper level and gain access to private monthly coaching calls with the Society owner, Kristin.


Access a library of thoughtfully created FounderChallenges and FounderClasses that help you take realistic steps toward a more successful business. We release something new each month.


Access our list of vetted, adored vendors for everything from printers to production—we’ve saved you a lot of time and energy by gathering them all into one place.

We would love to have you in the community!  Learn more right here >

We also offer three ways to immerse yourself in the Six
Pillars, where you set aside dedicated time to work through
each Pillar and create a solid foundation for your business.

The SCF Community provides an ongoing wealth of resources to help you grow, all
based on the Six Pillars, but if you want to work through our proven Six Pillar
system start to finish, we recommend one of the following. Each follows the same
curriculum and maintains the Society’s signature focus on community:

1 The Conference

Our flagship in-person conference, brought to you by Stationery Academy, feels more like a retreat. You and 19 other women will go deep into the Six Pillars—and form friendships that last a lifetime. This also includes a 3-month Elite membership in the Community once the event is over. We offer this once a year, typically in the spring.

2 Webinars

Learning new skills to enhance your business is necessary to continually improve.  Every fall, we offer a live webinar series to help you to grow your business with specific topics to teach you new skills.  We bring in experts to teach 60 minute live classes with no-fluff, actionable content where you will be able to apply what you learned immediately.

3 The Intensive

This four-month program offers more in-depth coaching and one-on-one guidance with focused attention on your business, weekly group calls, and mastermind groups. It’s designed to help you be disciplined, find clarity, and develop and execute a plan to reach the goals. This also includes a 3-month Elite membership in the Community once the program is over. We offer this once a year, by application only, typically in the fall.
