A mastermind for expert creatives that want to become better at business.

You started your creative business so that you can have the freedom to do what you love. But the problem is, most creatives run their business like a freelancer. Bouncing from project to project, providing discounts just to close the deal.

Not only that, after grinding through projects you end the year with little to no profit. And you find yourself wondering if running your own business is worth it.

That’s why I’ve created The Creative Pro. It’s a mastermind for expert creatives that want to become better at business.

Become a business savvy creative.

  • How to get clear about the problem you solve for your ideal clients.
  • How to get paid to make an estimate for your clients.
  • How to package your services in a way that scales.
  • How to charge what you’re worth and finally make a profit.
  • How to attract better clients.
  • Prepare your business to thrive in 2021.
