You have the skills to create beautiful things. You get to work with amazing clients and customers following your passion, The Money Making Creative shows you how to build a profitable business from that passion.


We hear you.

  • You don’t think that people will pay you for what you have to offer
  • You think it’s unrealistic to get paid to work creatively
  • You keep hearing that “the market is saturated” in your industry
  • You think you’re still in the portfolio building stage so you’re not ready to charge yet
  • You aren’t a salesperson and you don’t want to sound slimy or icky
  • You have no idea how to price or package up what you offer in order to actually make money
  • Heck, forget about pricing, you don’t even know how to pay yourself once there’s money involved


 

We get it.

We’ve taught thousands of creative small business that feel this exact same way. You’re flowing with ideas, but the money doesn’t match the work you’re putting into it. You keep looking at your calendar and think that if you just add 10 more clients or sell 50 more items you’ll make enough to break even (hopefully).

  • You’re ready for clients and customers to say “yes!” even to big ticket items
  • You’re ready for your customer experience to be streamlined and simple so there’s no confusion with what you’re providing or how much it costs

Who are we? Why should you learn from us?

There’s no program like this one. You can learn various strategies, but how to actually make the money is the missing piece. You’re good at what you do, but not selling it. That’s okay. Let us give you the open book to how we were able to use our knowledge of the 7 businesses we’ve built to create a powerhouse. There is no secret pill, but rather concise and intentional moves that you must make as a business owner in order to become profitable. This course won’t teach you new editing techniques, Photoshop skills or Instagram strategies, but it will teach you how to be smart at business.

We started at zero.

We went into the creative small business world like a lot of you - charging next to nothing for our work. After wrapping up just one client and barely making minimum wage we put a stop to that. We dove head first into learning the ins and outs of selling, the psychology of buying, perfecting the client experience, pricing and so much more. We knew what we had to offer was worth it, but we had to make our clients see that. In less than one year we turned a $75 client into a 10k client. Less than a year after that we had our first 20k+ month.

All this, just by using the simple methods that we teach inside The Money Making Creative. It’s not rocket science, it’s smart business.

"One of the biggest changes to my business came when I adapted the Money Making Creative’s strategy for setting financial goals. Setting an annual salary for myself and working backward to set quarterly goals has given me a focus and confidence that my business is actually performing the way I want it to. This strategy has taken away the chaotic hustle and fear around not knowing how much money my business is really making. Not only is my business running more smoothly, our profits have increased by over 300%."

- Jorden Ellis, Jordandené
