Coaching for Creative Professionals

08-Nov-2011

I’ve mentioned before that prior to Braid I was working as a freelance art director - focusing primarily on branding for microbusiness and artistpreneurs. But at the same time I was also documenting the freelance experience on my personal blog. I would share my struggles and successes in a monthly review and I would touch on tricky topics in a series called Freelance Matters. I started to get amazing feedback from other freelancers who were intrigued by my creative process and how I worked – from my to-do lists and managing projects to firing impossible clients. I started receiving requests to talk about other issues like how to estimate, bill and get paid doing what I love. College students started asking me about my career path and what worked for me.

I always felt a little funny being perceived as an expert on the topic because … you know … isn’t someone else more qualified to be talking about these sorts of things? But what I found is that these artistpreneurs wanted to hear it from me - they watched me grow through my experience and found themselves inspired to do the same. I became just as passionate talking about being a creative professional as I did about actually being a creative professional.

The more I write about being an artistpreneur the more I find other folks sharing their dreams and plotting their escape from the cubicle for a creative career. Tara and I want to help. That’s where our idea for one-on-one creative professional coaching comes in play.

You might be a good fit for creative professional coaching from Braid if:
• you are ready to move forward in your creative career but are unclear on next steps
• you could use a little motivation, inspiration and support from another creative professional who’s been there
• you need clarity on your own creative process
• you have lots of vision but need help paring it down into actionable steps to get you there
