How to work with me

How to work with me

I offer a custom-tailored business development program for studio founders and agency owners who want to reach the next level, fast. It’s all you’ll need to win your dream clients. 

The full program takes roughly three months and consists of six workshops and weekly touchstone sessions.

Step 1

Company audit

We start with a strategic audit of your studio. You talk, I listen. We'll find your weak spots, reveal your current state and future goals and evaluate your resources. You'll walk away with some first specific suggestions. 

Step 2

In-house workshops

You'll understand the process of how to win your dream clients. We'll go through a series of exercises and tackle specific problems like positioning, client acquisition, or operational management issues. 

Step 3

Implementation guidance

You'll experience the benefit of an objective, outside perspective. We'll hold weekly coaching sessions where I help you to implement the outcomes of our workshops.

Step 4

Performance review

We'll make sure that you have a working, long-term strategy for your studio. About six months after completion of the program, we'll get back together, and examine your progress and do necessary adjustments.

Stop playing small

If you're serious and ready to get to the next level, then let's talk and discuss how I can help you to make that leap. 

»Is it expensive? Hiring a coach seems like a serious investment.«

Yes, it's an investment. But it's less than what you'd spend on a freelance artist. With coaching, you'll invest in your business and your future. Don't you want to invest in a better future? 

»Sounds great, we'll do it another time.«

No, you won't. You'll procrastinate. I've seen it over and over again. You'll bookmark this site, waiting for the perfect moment to come when you have more time and money at your disposal. I get it; you're busy working on projects. But here's the point; if you don't get help now, you'll never have the time nor the money. My advice? Take action now and reap the first rewards in a few months or even weeks. There won't be a better time. Get in touch; it will be the best decision you make this year.

Don't be a stranger. Stay in touch!
