Course/Group Coaching Program:

The Creative Focus Workshop

The Creative Focus Workshop is the only program specifically designed to help serious creative people level up and put the work that really matters to them at the core of how they live their lives.

The CFW is a step-by-step course that is hosted in the midst of a robust, active accountability community of other committed, serious creatives, The Autonomous Creative Collective.

The tools you'll learn in the CFW combined with an engaged community who really get what you struggle with is a magic combination that will guide and support you through overcoming perfectionism, taking control of your insane to-do list, finding time in your week for your most important creative work, saying NO to putting other people’s priorities before your own… all without blowing up the rest of your life!

If you've got a game-changing project on the back burner—due to perfectionism, overwhelm, too many other demands in your life, or because you just don't know your next step…The Creative Focus Workshop is for you.

My artistic life has changed 100%. I am no longer afraid. Instead, I wake up looking forward to starting my creative day.

The prioritizing tools I learned help me sort my thoughts– so I know what to do when I start feeling overwhelmed by my ideas and aspirations.

CFW was truly one of the best things I have ever done for my creative career.

I had to dig deep to discover what I wanted. Working on my current project, I feel like I have given myself permission to focus instead of feeling overwhelmed with all the shiny artistic possibilities.

The CFW course and the ACC, which is a living laboratory populated with fellow creatives on similar journeys, helped me overhaul my processes, streamline habits, and overcome those sticking-points to find the focus and support to make consistent, weekly progress toward my goals.

Group Coaching Program:

The Autonomous Creative Incubator Program

Start getting paid like the expert you are in under six months

The Incubator is the artist-centered program where self-employed creatives design a sustainable, profitable business rooted in their creative expertise.

The Incubator is designed to short-circuit perfectionism and procrastination, and deliver results with no fluff.

You don’t have to wade through hours and hours of videos to find what you need.

There's no physics textbook of arcane charts and formulas to memorize.

Your needs and your questions form the foundation of what we implement, so that this program is perfectly suited to get your business off the ground in a matter of weeks.

Our next cohort will be in Spring 2023!
We’d love to discover whether we’d be a good fit to work together. Please fill in an application to get on the waitlist!

As creatives, we don't get to have the conversations that we would like to as frequently as we would like to. People outside the creative world do not have the same problems that we do.

They just don't. It's a fact, and it's just nice to be part of a community that relates and understands and is totally going through the same things that you are.

I had tried to join other groups that ended up being a lot of hobbyists, and then you're kind of like an accidental mentor. So I didn’t really get anything out of it. …Being able to have conversations with other people who are your peers, in terms of their level of expertise and craft—even if they're not in the exact same field—is really important and also hard to find.

This is the most extraordinary class I have ever been part of. I'm not a joiner. I'm a great teacher. I make other people join. I suck at it when it's me. To be this involved, to have connected with so many people, has just never happened before. Ever. Not college. Not anything after.

I was like, why are people always going on about a cohort? Who the f— cares? I get it now.
