Be as proud of your business as you are of your creative work

For self-employed creative pros: design and launch a profitable business you can be proud of in under six months

Introducing The Autonomous Creative Incubator

​​​​​​​The Incubator is a transformational, hands-on business program for creatives where you will...
  • Define your own vision for the future of your creative business, and develop an offer that gets you there.
  • Avoid getting stuck in perfectionism and instead take immediate, imperfect action and bring in money, fast.
  • Refine and iterate your pilot offer into a sustainable and profitable business foundation that's primed for growth with our intensive, hands-on support.

With our help, you will:

  • Strategically design a profitable offer designed to meet your needs in just two days.
  • Implement your offer in the first thirty days, test it with clients, and start earning money.
  • Grow and iterate on your offer, while building the necessary systems to market and deliver it.
  • Step into your own sustainable, perfect-for-you business within six months. 

"Learning" isn't going to fix your revenue and overwork problems.

DOING is the only true way forward.

This is an accelerated program to get you to the next level in just a few months! You'll have weekly calls and hands-on support from Jessica Abel and the Autonomous Creative team.

Here's the path: 

Jumpstart Weekend: A two day intensive where you'll get your hands dirty immediately, designing a pilot offer that is built to scale up fast and reach your financial goals.

Coaching support: 

Concierge onboarding to get you started strong.

Jumpstart Weekend is live group sessions for two days with Jessica Abel (Replays available for everything, of course!)

Bootcamp month offers two coaching calls and a day of Voxer support every week, with Jessica Abel and the coaching team.

The five month build-out phase includes a weekly coaching call as well as ongoing support in our discussion group.

Plus, you qualify for 1:1 calls with a coach when you hit your big milestones!

Our coaching sessions are incredibly flexible and useful. They include strategic and informational support as well as hands on critique and feedback on your work, and even help setting up the tech.

You also get:

Membership in a safe, supportive, small-group setting, with other incredible, engaged creative business owners who are struggling just like you are to make a great living, with support for developing accountability groups and partnerships.

A 24-7 online support and feedback forum. Engage in asynchronous conversation and ask questions whenever it makes most sense for you.

An interactive, action-encouraging workbook/text/course dashboard (PLUS company HQ) built for you in the online platform Notion. Really, until you see how engaging this format is, you won't believe it. No more taking notes that never turn into action!

The Incubator is like no other program you've experienced before

We pull back the curtain and reveal the invisible architecture that will allow you to design a simple business for success, rather than doing more and more and always scrambling to make ends meet.

We deliver the complete framework of strong, flexible, functional business that's built around the concerns of creative professionals, and we help you build it out to your specifications, every step of the way.

We get you DOING, instead of just thinking, planning, and dreaming.

To do this, we tap into our deep background in helping creatives get the work done that comes from teaching creative productivity to hundreds of students and helping them accelerate their production, and get their work out into the world.

You're not an apprentice anymore. You've read enough, studied enough.

It's time for an experience that's not informational, it's transformational.

I’m Jessica Abel

I’m a cartoonist/ author/ teacher/ editor/ illustrator turned creative business owner.

I know what it’s like to be doing everything “right,” and realize that people on the outside think I’ve got it all nailed, yet working insane hours and still not making ends meet.

I like to think of myself as competent. Yet a total lack of connection between the massive effort I was investing and the minimal return was driving me crazy.

I needed control over my life and my future.

I needed to support my family.

So I pivoted, hard, to creative business ownership.

This pivot point for me and my career is exactly the pivot point I am driven to create for others.

I want you to have an independent, creative, sustainable business.

I want you to have control of your future.

I want you to stop feeling victimized by your creative life (and stop feeling guilty for feeling that way when so many others would love to do what you do).

I believe that every professional creative needs to equip themself with powerful, effective strategy so that they can build businesses that meet their needs.

We (the big We—the world) need you to be successful because we need you to have the freedom and support to bring your work to the world for the rest of us to experience!
