But what's the deal with branding? How can a silly little logo make such a big difference? Well, first up - branding is SO much more than just a logo. Branding is the FEELING that clients get when they interact with your business. And a really strong brand means that your work is instantly recognisable. It builds fans and followers and a good reputation - all of which allows you to grow your business in wonderful and exciting ways!


This course is your compass for distinguishing good from extraordinary branding. It's time to let your creativity flow. I'll guide you step by step to create a strong, memorable brand that stands out. With psychology as our guide, we'll dive into branding's world.

Plus, I'll reveal techniques to enhance credibility and gauge the effectiveness of your branding, both with existing and potential clients.

3. Marketing Bootcamp: Creativity Meets Strategy

Navigating the overwhelming landscape of marketing can be a whirlwind – algorithms shift, audience engagement feels limited, and the essence of your craft can get buried under the weight of constant content creation.

Having walked this path, I've unearthed invaluable insights. I've embraced the supremacy of quality over quantity, realised that marketing should harmonise joyously with your routine, and uncovered the transformative magic of dedicating a single day every three months to plan marketing strategies. This revelation has galvanised my extensive, multi-faceted business, prompting me to share these revelations openly, as I believe in fostering industry growth and excellence.

6. MINI COURSE: 10 Steps for Launching/Refreshing Your Small Biz

Embarking on the journey of launching or rejuvenating your small business?

Then this mini course is for YOU.


We’re unpacking exactly what a growth mindset is, and how to foster one yourself. In this mini-course, we're diving deep into the essence of a growth mindset and showing you how to cultivate one for yourself.

8. MINI COURSE: Effective Client Comms

You know what I'm really tired of - seeing fellow creatives STRUGGLING to manage the communications with their clients! Hearing them getting bullied, messed around, or short-changed for their efforts. And my friend, if you know that feeling - then we're in the same boat! I'VE BEEN THERE.


In more than a decade of running my business, I've learnt how to handle tricky client comms situations, and I want to teach YOU how to put the systems and protocols in place so you NEVER have to end up in hot water again.

I can confidently say that I’ve figured out how to dedicate ONE DAY every three months to figuring out and planning out marketing material and content for the following three months!! And this has REVOLUTIONISED the advertising of my business (and I have a BIG business, with multiple facets). And, well, I don’t believe in keeping business secrets. I believe in growing and improving our industry.


In this course I'm going to hand YOU the tools to revolutionise the marketing strategies of your own business - starting by laying a solid foundation that will set you up for success, crafting a strategy to take you through a whole year of content planning, and maximising on the content you're creating and how to truly re-purpose it like a pro!



All of our courses are primarily targeted at creative small businesses - however these tips and tricks are applicable to a multitude of businesses out there! At the core of it all, all businesses operate in a very similar manner, and you'll be apply to apply the information contained to any biz model.
