Only One 2016 Session
on our beautiful web portal
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.
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, 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. You end up feeling like a hit-or-miss detective rather than a founder.
And we want to change that. We help you create a strong foundation for your entire business within a supportive, intimate community. We know your frustrations because we’ve been where you are. This is a place where you gain the knowledge and skills you need to move your business forward—in a supportive environment with other creative business owners just like you, where you feel safe to share your struggles and your victories.

The Creative Founders Course curriculum covers the 6 Pillars of a Successful Creative Business: Core, Client, Brand, Money, Call, and Plan. We will provide you with actionable takeaways, engaging discussions, our proven course workbook, and plan as the founder of your creative business. First, we develop Your Core purpose and figure out the driving force behind your call to create. Second, we talk about Your Client where we identify and name our people and help you say "no" to the ones who aren't ideal. Third, we move into Your Brand where we futher develope your signature style and collections. Your Call is all about marketing and developing a plan that you can execute and that will work for you. Lastly, Your Plan is where we take a dive deep into the vision of your business and you create a plan for the upcoming year.
If you launced your business quickly, it took off and now you're realizing you need to take a step back and address the things you didn't have time to get to, this is a great course for you. For 2016, we have updated content and a new platform and website that creates a beautiful learning environment. Refine your ideal client, audience messaging, get a hold of your business finances, and walk away with a plan. Start 2017 with a solid plan and know exactly what you need to grow your business.
Defining your purpose and mission by honing in on your strengths, fears, passions, goals, and purpose is where we start and lay the groundwork for the rest of the conference and your business.
Defining your ideal client is a must. You can’t be everything to everyone, so we’ll teach you how to identify who your client is and how that will help you grow your business. We’ll walk you through step-by-step to identify your ideal customer.
A joint video call with the Your Core and Your Client coach and Jennifer to answer any questions you have so far and address any other needs you have in your creative business. These call are recorded.
Your Brand is the anchor of your company and how you take all the things you’ve learned so far and show it visually throughout your company. It is not just your logo. A big part of your brand is your own signature style and winning the “comparison game”.
After an Implementation week, we'll jump into financials. We all love what we do, but you must pay yourself fairly and priceo your product appropriately. We’ll discuss how you can do both and feel better about it, plus we’ll provide you with spreadsheets and resources to track all of your dollars.
October 26 & November 9
A joint video call with the Your Brand and Your Money coach and the Your Call coach with Jennifer to answer any questions you have so far and address any other needs you have in your creative business. These call are recorded.
Your call is how you market your business and attract customers. We’ll discuss ways you can freshen your campaigns and implement some strategies as soon as you get home. You’ll leave with the beginnings of your marketing plan and how to “get yourself out there”.
All of our content leads to this: a plan. We’ll use our time together this week to iron out any uncertainties, try some marketing tactics to see what works for you, check things off your action items list, and leave with a real, actionable plan and vision for the future.
Creative Business Growth Strategiest and your host. The Founder behind Society for Creative Founders.
Hi friend! I started my career in marketing and design for the healthcare and tech start-up industries, and then started my wedding invitation business in 2008. I grew it to a six figure operation. After five successful years in the wedding invitation business, I now serve creative business owners through a variety of learning experiences, both online and in person as Founder of the Society for Creative Founders. I’m energized by empowering women to run their creative business with better strategy, plans, systems, and growth - and in a way that works for your lifestyle. I believe growth and abundance and a helping hand conquer fear, scarcity, and a stuck mindset. We’re better together! I"ll be leading you through the Your Plan pillar and will be with you every step of the way, from the beginning.
