Boost your sales today!

Ok, so the creative life and business you so desire and wish for feels just out of reach, you'd love to feel more worthy, confident, successful & in demand for your creativity and creations; you feel you need to prove that your creations are worth the time, money, passion you invest in them (and to prove your loved ones that you can do it too!), you want your creativity to contribute to your family finances and you long for and dream of turning your creativity into a job that you love, fulfils you and brings joy and happiness to the people you wish to serve. On top of this you may be feeling disconcerted, disillusioned, disappointed, fed up, frustrated, uncomfortable, stressed, pressed for time, worried about money, overwhelmed, insecure, not good enough, disorganised & exhausted with not knowing how to professionally market, sell & run your creative business. 

Maybe you've already spent time surfing online - piecing together snippets of marketing & sales advice, finding, following blogs or social media pages, trying to apply what you've learnt to your creative business and crossing your fingers and hoping that this time it will work. 

Maybe you've already invested money and precious time in business, marketing or sales training, read some books, listened to some podcasts, attended some webinars, joined some membership clubs but still have been disappointed or disheartened that the information you received wasn't quite as helpful, worthwhile or spot on as you thought it may be, despite the cost.

So, in short nothing has really worked and you're not much further forward regardless of the time, energy & money you've spent & you're losing the enthusiasm, time, will & patience to keep searching for those elusive gems of creative marketing & sales wisdom that will really transform your business. It might even be that you're starting to think they don't really exist and you might as well give up what you love to do as you're never going to be able to make a business out of it.

Once upon a time I too was just like you. Hell, I've been there, worn & washed the t-shirt many times. It's not fun.
