My clients have called me many things — guru, coach, consultant, teacher, friend, confidante, bossy know-it-all — but at the heart of it, I’m your partner.
I’m here to help you — filmmakers, fine artists, photographers, designers, writers or other creative entrepreneurs — get real results through marketing.
You need someone to motivate, educate and inspire you to reach the next the level -- someone to work with you as you build a custom plan to get what you want. You need someone who will be there for the long haul, not dump knowledge and walk away. You need someone to hold you accountable to your dreams. You need someone who knows what the hell she's talking about. You need someone who's not afraid to call you out when you're not living up to your potential.
You need someone who can help you get Real Results.
I know my stuff, and I tell it like it is.
I know your creative soul, and the many ways it's different from that of any other type of business owner. I've personally worked in creative industries, including as a rep, and many of my dearest friends are creatives — I'm even married to one!
With degrees in Communications and Psychology, I can cultivate a message that will resonate with your audience. My background also makes me a very effective coach — I know how to blast past your mental stumbling blocks and keep you motivated on the path to success.
I'm a tough but effective teacher. I led the Marketing curriculum at Brooks Institute for close to a decade. In that lauded incubator of creative talent, many talented students were leaving school without knowing how to build a successful business. It was my job to prepare them for the real world of marketing so they could achieve their dreams.
15 years ago, I launched my consulting and coaching business, Marketing Creatives, to help creatives at all stages of their careers get the work and the life they want. See real stories from clients at different levels.
I will keep you motivated, accountable and focused.
Without these three things, any plans you make will be useless. You need help making this a habit so that you can follow through with the Plan we create together, and achieve your goals.
I'm a master coach, and I'm here to support you as you reach for your dreams. As a “horse-mom” — my daughter is now a university equestrian coach, competing since she was 10 years old — I know how to be a enthusiastic cheerleader in moments of glory, a tough-love dispenser in moments of self-doubt, and a sympathetic listener in moments of defeat.
I'm committed to your continuing success, inspiring you beyond your limits, again and again. This is not a quick fix. Success takes stamina, and like all high-achieving individuals — whatever their field — you need strong coaching and continual support throughout your career.
I give 150% effort to every client, and expect the same in return. My take-no-prisoners approach demands accountability, hard work, and honesty.
This program is proven.
... Just ask the hundreds of clients who have achieved their goals! See real stories from real clients.
Even with proven results, though, achieving success through this program is a two-way street. No one can do everything for you — your outcome depends on your commitment and your drive. Like most things in life, you get out what you put in.
Improving your business doesn't happen overnight. It takes sustained effort and strong coaching. Most likely, you weren't born amazing at everything. You know from your creative work that it takes practice, education and experience to develop your talent. Marketing is no different. I help my clients develop the skills they need to get results that last.
Although they say there are no guarantees in life, I will make one here: You can get more of what you want by following the principles in the Real Results Program — if you're ready to do the work.
The Marketing Creatives Mission
Gone forever are the days when a person or business could “just do their work.” Today, we have to understand how to brand ourselves. Staying in the game is much more demanding. And we are required to compete in an entirely new way.
Marketing Creatives' works hard to teach creatives to identify what they want, how they want it and, from there, to build a custom one year plan with step-by-step tasks to make it happen.
