Sooner or later,
we all need advice.

We’ve all heard that voice scratching at the back of our head.

 

Will I get paid enough for what I’ve agreed to do? Did I give myself enough time to get this done? Will I get ripped off? Can I make a living – pay my bills, buy supplies, take a vacation, take time off?

 

Making a living is a lonely business. There are no guarantees. You don’t get paid until you’re finished, sold what you’ve made, took on the next gig or got another contract. You know your craft, but not how to read a contract, “market” your work, write a grant, attract an investor, rent a space to work in, and, most importantly, how to manage your time. A lonely business? Indeed. 

  

When you hear that voice, you want to find someone to talk to. That’s the reason we’ve created our programs.
