You’ve been working hard. You are getting (some) clients.
And…you still don’t feel confident or professional when it comes to running your business. 

It can be tough to be a freelancer in the creative services industries.

You are essentially trying to sell something invisible – a promise to create deliverables that don’t currently exist.  And you’ve never really been trained on how to do that.

  • How do you figure out who your target market or ideal client is?
  • How do you manage your time better so you don’t feel so stressed and burnt out?
  • What do you say in your marketing?
  • How can you make more money?
  • Are you charging enough? Too much?

Where do you even start with choosing which of the many platforms, tools, apps, etc you are going to use to try to get your compelling marketing messages out there, in front of the right clients, when they are ready to buy?

It is no wonder you are feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.

Good news! You don’t have to stay stuck, frustrated, and struggling any more.

 

The BUSINESS MASTERY Program gives you the training, resources, and support you need to:

The Business Mastery Program is NOT for you if you…

  • are at the very beginning of your freelancer journey and haven’t had many clients yet
  • need immediate cash flow instead of long-term, sustainable results
  • expect to get things right the first time instead of through consistent practice and revisions
  • are too busy to work ON your business for 8 to 10 hours a week

Aura McKay, Founder and Lead Instructor of Business of Creativity

Hi! I’m Aura McKay.

I am a marketing instructor and business coach with more than 20 years of my own experience as an award winning photographer. It breaks my heart how little real training there is around business, marketing, and mindset for freelance creatives

I also see how much of the training that is available seems to be missing the part that personalizes the training, supports people to apply it to their own business, and deals with the loneliness and imposter syndrome.

In my experience of training and coaching hundreds of freelance creatives, choosing a program and coach to work with is not something that should be done on impulse.

Learning  works best when there is alignment.

My commitment is to only work with clients who are a match. Where we are aligned in our communication styles and values. And when what you need is exactly what I can provide.

So book your Alignment Call with me today, let’s talk about your freelance creative business and your goals.
