Business Accelerator Mastermind

Stop struggling to grow your creative freelance business all on your own.

The live online community of support you want with the expert feedback and resources you need to move your creative freelance business further, faster.

A mastermind is a group of individuals that come together to create more powerful results than we can by working on our own. 

If you are a photographer, videographer, writer, designer or other service based creative running your own business and you want:

A Committed Community Of Creatives Like You 

You don’t have to do it alone. This is a curated group of creative services providers committed to helping each other and to growing their businesses.

  • Leverage the experience, resources, and support of other creative freelancers and solopreneurs.
  • Connection and knowing others are having the same challenges is invaluable and reduces the feeling of isolation.
  • Support partners can provide the accountability you need to take consistent meaningful action on your creative business. 

Expert Feedback & Ideas From An Experienced Coach

Group coaching sessions with creative business expert, Aura McKay, offer you the chance to get expert feedback on your specific challenges.

Get help with things like:

  • Copy writing for your new offer page
  • What to say in your client reach out messages
  • When should you pay to advertise
  • How to incentive new bookings
  • And so much more….

Accelerate Your Business & Personal Growth

Weekly meetings help create the habit of consistently working ON your creative business. 

The Mastermind sessions help you maximize and leverage the contributions from the group:

  • Learn from the mistakes and successes of others
  • Access the expanded contacts and links from the full group
  • Connect outside of meetings to get even more support
  • Brainstorm ideas and get contributions from qualified sources

Then you have come to the right place.

“Shout out the BAM Fam for the practice on introductions and talking about my passion and owning it, because I nailed my “elevator pitch” intro at the beginning of the meeting and it led to so much awesome conversation and further questions!”

I had a potential client that I was in touch with last year reach out to see if I’m interested in working with them during their crunch time this year and what my rates are…I took the opportunity to bump up my rate and suggested we work out a retainer. They’re interested in working together and we’re chatting Monday! Thank you for the support, the practice and the encouragement BAM Fam!

We do Masterminds a little differently:

Our mastermind groups are:


  •  Curated to make sure that we are all creatives (content developers, designers, photographers, coaches, etc…)
  • Recorded and stored in your online student dashboard so that you can review as much and whenever you want to
  •  Multi-layered with both masterminds and group coaching with expert business coach, Aura McKay
  •  Specifically designed to help you focus on what matters most and take consistent actions
  •  Safe places to deal with challenges, experience breakthroughs, and feel connected to community
  • Opportunities to practice your networking skills and role play your sales and marketing so you feel confident in the real world

Our mastermind groups are not:


  •  Group therapy sessions or places to work out your emotional traumas. We care. We really do. We just aren’t qualified to support you with deep mental health healing. 
  •  Casual, willy nilly, come as you please gatherings like a Facebook Group. Our meetings have a code of conduct and a commitment of contribution from our members.
  •  In depth training sessions. Yes, you often get great tips, tools, ideas, and input (especially from Aura) but if you want to learn business, marketing, or pricing strategies…take one of our programs.
  • Quick fixes or magic formulas (although huge breakthroughs happen all the time!). They are the on going support you need to master the business of creativity. 

We’ve helped many creatives just like you, take one small action…
and another and another…to design, build, grow, and master the business of creativity with confidence and ease.

Aura McKay, founder of Business of Creativity With Laptop Circle

Hi. I’m Aura McKay.

As the Founder of Business of Creativity, I am passionate about supporting creative freelancers and solopreneurs to have a life and make a living doing work you love. 

I am a huge fan of the group coaching and mastermind format.

You know how it is always easier to solve someone else’s problems? And how your own challenges get solved when you see how someone else approaches it? And how you are way more consistent at working on your business when you have a deadline?

As a trained and experienced mastermind facilitator, I help members to leverage the full power of shared group knowledge, resources, and contacts to accelerate your results.

Of course, I also bring my own experience as an international award winning photographer, expertise in financial management and marketing communications, and years of experience coaching other creatives.

“Every single week I get something valuable from this group. Often the feeling of connection and not being so alone is worth showing up for on its own! The weekly 2 minute tweaks to my business and marketing are starting to pay off.”
