The Creative Coaching Studio Membership

A virtual creative studio hub for artists, designers and makers who want to BREAKOUT of the starving artist trap & TRANSFORM their creative life & business turning their PASSION into their PURPOSE, reaching more people without compromising their creative integrity.

I have one mission - to help you thrive & flourish in your creative career or business so that you make more money without all the hustle!

Do you feel like you're ready to build an incredible creative career or business, but you don't know where to start or how to get there?

I can't tell you how many messages I receive that start with "Sarah, I'm not sure what to do next....I'm just feeling STUCK."

If you're anything like the incredibly passionate & skilled creatives I talk to, chances are that you hate feeling stuck.  And to make things more frustrating...it seems like everyone else on your Instagram feed is being more creative & successful than you.

YOU'VE PROBABLY ASKED YOURSELF "WHY IS THIS NOT ME?" OR "WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?"

Working from home or freelancing as an artist, designer or maker can be lonely.  Especially if you are just starting out, or you have been used to working in a studio/office environment surrounded by other people.

It can be tough to motivate yourself, generate your own project briefs & hold yourself accountable to self-generated deadlines.

Maybe you're even SO overwhelmed that you just want to give up....but you don't, because you know there's a better way.  I mean, you see other people doing it, so why not you?

I TOTALLY GET IT MY FRIEND.  I'VE BEEN EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW, AND THERE'S NO ONE WHO UNDERSTANDS WHERE YOU'RE COMING FROM MORE THAN I DO.

You've probably done loads of online courses to develop your skills or build your portfolio.  Maybe you download & watch every free training you see on Facebook, you've attended all the webinars & workshops you can get your hands on, but you're still no closer to having the successful, creative career or business that you dreamed of......YET!

You have so many ideas, if you could just figure out a plan to actually implement them all.  Maybe you get so overwhelmed & lost in the planning stage trying to get all the details mapped out so that you can finally take action.

WHAT IF THE ONLY THING GETTING IN THE WAY OF YOUR SUCCESS WAS YOU?

It's OK...it's also not your fault, it's the way you're designed, or rather it's the way your brain is programmed & conditioned to keep you safe.  I know this because it happened to me.

After completing my design degree nearly 20 years ago I became crippled with self doubt.  I just didn't know what to do or where to start with launching my creative career, let alone a creative business.  I tried freelancing & working from home, but despite being a typical introvert, I felt so isolated.

Not being surrounded by other creatives, I began to doubt my creative abilities & I felt completely stuck.  Flicking through magazines or searching the internet, comparing myself to others who were further along and feeling like I wasn't measuring up.

BUT I'M HERE TO TELL YOU THERE'S A BETTER WAY - AND I HAD TO LEARN IT THE HARD WAY.

YOU CAN CREATE THE CREATIVE CAREER OR BUSINESS OF YOUR DREAMS WITHOUT SACRIFICING THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE.

And I can show you how in The Creative Coaching Studio.

Imagine......

Imagine being surrounded by like-minded creatives, that you can share your highs & lows with & that will always have your back.

Imagine feeling INSPIRED, energised & motivated in your creative work so that you feel BRAVE enough to push out of your comfort zone.

Imagine having complete clarity & focus in what your doing - and that you're focused on the most IMPORTANT details that will bring you SUCCESS

Imagine if you had systems in place to help your business run in the background, freeing you up to do more of the stuff that lights you up.

Imagine if you were the CREATIVE DIRECTOR of your creative career or business, how would you be showing up differently?

Imagine how much more MONEY you would be making if you felt fully confident in charging your true WORTH

How does The Creative Coaching Studio work?

Every successful business owner knows that you need to have clarity, focus & action in order to achieve results.  The problem: so many of us creatives get 'shiny object syndrome', we get distracted & put our focus on all the wrong things.  We get caught up in doing things that don't create impact, that don't create income, and things that keep us stuck - wishing, wanting and comparing.

"The Creative Coaching Studio is NOT a design school.  It is a virtual creative co-working space, somewhere to hangout & get support.  Somewhere to ask questions, share ideas, get feedback, set your intentions & be held accountable.  It is a place to access powerful & highly effective coaching for you to create your own strategy for SUCCESS."

"I love the VIP Virtual Co-working sessions. Having this virtual space where I can connect with other creatives whilst we all work on our individual projects, in the safety and comfort of my own home has been immensely beneficial.

There is also so much to learn just from having this connection with professionals who do something a little bit different from you."

I PROMISE I HAVEN'T LOST MY MIND - I'M JUST THAT EAGER TO SEE YOU LIVE YOUR DREAMS.

This is for you if you're...

An artist, designer or maker that is stuck in the 'starving artist' trap and is ready to break out.

Are all online coursed out...you've been overwhelmed with content, ideas and #allthethings

Finished with the excuses and are ready to get focused and take action.

"The Creative Coaching Studio is a safe space to discuss the difficulties of transitioning to a creative career. It has helped me formulate more realistic plans and goals.  I have a tendency to plan impossible amounts to do and then feel bad that I don't meet them."

On The Fence?

Here's what you'll want to know before joining

I JUST STARTED MY CREATIVE CAREER/BUSINESS - IS THE STUDIO FOR ME?

Yes!  There is no reason for you to have to make the same mistakes I made when I first started.  This community is designed to give you a support system to help you start & scale your creative career/business.  If you're just getting started, this is the perfect time to dive in & get the support you need.  

I HAVE A 9-5 & MY CREATIVE WORK IS A SIDE HUSTLE - IS THE STUDIO FOR ME?

Absolutely yes!  We all have to start somewhere and this community can support you as you scale up your side hustle.

WHEN DO I GET ACCESS TO THE CONTENT?

Straight away.  As soon as you join & complete your first payment, you'll get sent the link to set up your password to access The Studio, and you're in!

HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE CONTENT?

You'll have access to the content for as long as you're a member.

CAN I CANCEL AT ANY TIME?

Yes!  The Studio is a rolling monthly contract, you can cancel at any time.

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER MEMBERSHIPS?

This is not a design school, you already have everything you need in that department.  My soul purpose is to support you to break out of the 'starving artist trap' & thrive as an artist, designer or maker.

WHEN ARE THE GROUP COACHING CALLS?

Group coaching calls are usually on or around the 2nd Thursday of the month in the morning.

HOW DO THE VIRTUAL CO-WORKING STUDIO SESSIONS WORK?

The Studio sessions are hosted in Zoom and they are usually held on the first Thursday & 3rd Tuesday of every month.  They may be subject to change, but there will be advance notice.

CAN YOU GUARANTEE MY SUCCESS?

No I can't.  You are responsible for your own success.  What I can tell you is that if you consistently show up, engage with the community & do the work, you will make progress.
Success isn't linear, can be a rollercoaster with many ups & downs, but you have to keep going & we will be right there with you!

Hi! I'm so excited that you're interested in joining The Creative Coaching Studio.

I'm Sarah, an ICF certified Creative Life & Business Coach as well as an artist, and The Creative Coaching Studio is my passion project!

I know what it's like when you're starting out, I've been there.  To dream of having a bricks & mortar studio space one day, but you're not quite making the money to justify the rental costs?

Maybe you've just gone freelance & you're missing the community & connection that comes from working in an office or studio?

This membership was created just for you!  So tell me...are you in?
