Core Values List

Get clear on your core values so you can put them into action in your creative business

You’ve built a creative career rooted in your passion for your work.

Your vision for how meaningful it can be for others. Your commitment to a creative life. You’ve probably managed to score some big paydays along the way via referrals, word of mouth, and pure determination.

You’re justifiably proud of what you’ve achieved.

But you face a gap. Maybe a chasm.

  • You need to get real about your creative business and put in the structure and foundation that will support your growth. But the advice you see is totally out of alignment with your creative work (and the demands of your life!)
  • You’ve been working professionally in your field for years and are amazing at what you do…but the money and the time crunch just get worse. You need to shift the paradigm.
  • You’ve got a million possibilities swimming around in your head. You need to figure out what to focus on or how to quit second-guessing yourself.

And you want to do it all while taking care of yourself, mentally and physically.

First of all, let me just say that you’re a badass. It’s no joke to get as far as you have!

But you can see that what got you here won’t get you where you need to go.

You need a new strategy, and not one cobbled together from the “Top 10 Tips” flung about by Insta-influencers and self-help books. None of that generic advice can address the specific issues you face.

That’s why I’m so happy to invite you to join me and an amazing group of creative peers who take their business as seriously as you do at the (free) Simplify to Amplify Roundtable.

Each month, bring whatever creative career and business questions you’re grappling with, and we’ll spend an hour addressing what’s working, what’s not working, and what to do next.

Our next session is:

October 4th at 12PM ET

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.

My own story is why I’m totally committed to my mission to help as many artists, writers, and other creatives take control of their careers as I possibly can.

I believe that every professional creative needs to equip themself with powerful, effective strategy so that they can build businesses that meet their needs. Strategy—which includes getting a handle on the numbers—is the key that unlocks powerful decisions that will allow artists to live and work as they choose.

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!
