Yes that is a hot chocolate in that mug because I can’t think of anything cosier during winter. Can you? . I haven’t spoken about seasons much but I’d love to more! At the beginning of the year I came to a huge epiphany on seasons and how they relate to business. Spring = the time for new ideas & fresh dreams! There is excitement in the air. You have a new leash on life. You haven’t accomplished anything yet, but the future is looking GREAT! Summer = the time for hard work. There can be sweat and there can be tears. But it’s the time to knuckle down and do the work. You’re working on those dreams you had in spring and sometimes you can’t seem to see the light at the tunnel. Don’t lose heart. Now is not the time to give up, because the harvest is coming! Autumn = the harvest. That’s when you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour. The money starts rolling in, the clients start rolling in and business & life are just amazing. Your dreams are coming true right before your eyes. It’s bliss. And Autumn can last for a long, long, long time! But then there comes winter. Winter = a time to slow down. It could mean going into hibernation and taking a sabbatical. It could mean an entire year of rest. Or it could be a decision to stop offering something in your business. Sometimes good things come to an end. And Winter is that, the rest or the end of something. But don’t worry, if things are coming to an end in your business, next season is spring again! . I’d love to know which season you think you’re in. For me? It’s definitely Summer. With my new business I’ve stepped past the dreaming and I’m in the thick of it. The sweat, the tears, the hard work. That’s me.
Every inch of me is holding back from sharing my 5 secrets to Growing a profitable creative business here with you on Instagram. I’m tempted to force everyone to know them, but I can’t. It’s a choice I’m leaving in your hands . The weirdest thing is experiencing a transformation, knowing the steps that it took to reach that transformation and then trying to convince others to take the same steps. . Sometimes it feels like it doesn’t matter how much jumping up and down I do, how many freebies I give out, how many podcasts I release or how many fancy marketing techniques I use...I feel like I can’t 100% convince everyone to take the journey to success🤣 . However, if you want to see my attempts to dance the 5 secrets into your mind and convince you that they work, join me for a free masterclass where I spill the beans. (Link in bio)

You know what I love about being an entrepreneur the most? Is that you can actually make a huge impact. . This last week I’ve seen the power of entrepreneurship to actually change lives and speak into injustices like never before. . I’m well aware that most of the creatives I work with didn’t/don’t start their businesses to make money. Yes, of course, money is important. But, mostly, I see creatives starting businesses to have more time for the things that matter to them. Time to make an impact. What I see and am seeing is beautiful. . I want to continue to give you the tools to do this. I want your impact to extend beyond a social media wave. I want your desire for impact to be supported by your sustainable business. . This week I’m doing a live masterclass. And I’m teaching “the 5 secrets to Growing a profitable Creative Business while only working 3 days a week”. Or in other words, “5 Secrets to Growing a Profitable Creative Business while (insert your dream)” . I see the need for this content to be delivered more than ever. I believe it’s possible to design a business that allows you to live a life of impact, meaning and investment in the things that matter. And I believe that THIS is the key to having lasting impact beyond a wave of impact, but a life of impact instead . I’d love you to join me! (Link in bio) . 📷 @brookeartstudio
Prayers for true rest to your weary souls. Sabbath up. “In His arms He’ll take & shield thee. Thou wilt find a solace there”
5 years ago I was sitting in my home, an attic above a flower studio that had no kitchen or bathroom within 50 metres, and I had just discovered that I had made $8,000 in 12 months of my Floral Design Business. I was deflated. After all the hustling, I still didn’t have a penny to show for it! I was striving for clients to pay me what I was worth, but kept hearing crickets every time I sent through my prices. I desperately wanted flexibility and freedom and time for what mattered most to me, but it just seemed impossible. I knew something had to change. I was determined to figure out a way to grow a creative business that served the life I wanted to achieve. So I tested what seems like every single creative business tip that ever existed. After $10,000 worth of courses, 8 months of podcast episodes and 6 months of trial and error, I transformed my floral design business from taking on $1,500 clients to $8,000 clients. I was working only 3 days a week and was able to take 3 months off every year. The exact strategies I used for my floral design business have now gone on to transform many types of creative businesses: photographers, interior designers, graphic designers, artists, ceramicists, videographers, styliests (you name it). I have a free 1 hour Masterclass coming up that I don’t want you to miss. I’m spilling my 5 SECRETS to growing a profitable creative business, while only working 3 days.
