Are you a freelance professional in a creative field struggling to make enough money? 

Do any of these describe you?

  • You're not sure where to find ongoing, well-paying clients without feeling like you're constantly hustling
  • You're unsure if you can truly make a living at this
  • You wonder if you're good enough
  • You are working around the clock – nights and weekends too – and you're feeling burnout creep in
