Real Talk

Honest conversations about the highs and lows of running a freelance creative business.

Every 4th Tuesday from 12pm to 5:30pm (pst) – Free to join.

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 you 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. 

Photographers, designers, writers, and videographers…

you know what being a freelancer is REALLY like.

feeling isolated or alone
no real feedback
nowhere to practice your pitch
confusion around marketing
overwhelmed wearing ‘all the hats’
no one to commiserate or brainstorm with

Real Talk is a monthly free and live online meeting with other creative freelancers and solopreneurs, lead by experienced facilitator, Aura McKay.

Welcome & Introductions

We start with a guided networking session where you get to practice your introduction and get valuable feedback.

BUT….this is not your typical sit around in a virtual meeting room with no idea what to say or how to participate, feeling ackward and tons of pressure.

As a trained and experienced online facilitator for group meetings and masterminds, I set you up for success with clear instructions and plenty of opportunities to practice.

Honest Conversations & Feedback

Freelancer life is not all highlights and high fives. There are real struggles and challenges to running a creative freelancing business.

And nobody really talks about it. 

Bring your obstacles and questions about being successful and I will lead a focused discussion to share wisdom, techniques, experiences, and resources, so that we all walk away with an ah-ha or a plan of action.

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