"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
- Henry David Thoreau
The Lucrative Artist was designed to give you new perspectives that can help get you to where you'll no longer feel the need to audition for everything, take jobs you don't really want, be subservient to what others want or expect, and/or do anything else keeping you from being the authentic artist you're truly meant to be.
No matter the degree or level, this program can be your compass as you steadily transition into the next chapter of your professional life.

It's perfectly normal to want to have the chance to be your own boss yet find yourself not knowing at all what to do or fearful of actually doing it. You're not alone, and this program was created with the intention of helping people just like you overcome any fears as you're safely guided through every step you need help.

Learn how to position yourself to find success no matter how the world changes. You will ultimately become more comfortable with making more money, and in Phase III, you will gain the vital financial literacy necessary to get on your pathway to financial freedom.
Q: Do I have to go through all the movements and in order?
A: Not necessarily. Some just need one or a couple. You're welcome to apply and begin the conversation to determine what is best for you. The whole program is designed to function as a progressive wholistic journey befitting what is common for many artists who are new to entrepreneurship, so each subsequent movement builds upon the success of the previous. While the first movement is a pretty firm prerequisite for the second, it's possible to have a customized standalone offering of the third and/or fourth movement if it would benefit your current business or career situation. If so, you're welcome to apply and make note of that in your application.
Q: What if I don't need all content in a certain movement?
A: In a 1:1 coaching program, there will be always be room for additional customization to suit the needs of the individual client. However, sometimes learning more about what you think you already know can actually make for a deeper and more engaging experience. It would also be possible to address other related topics or shift the focus from empowering yourself to empowering others.
Q: I don't want anyone to know I am a client - can I be anonymous?
A: YES. Your privacy is paramount in the relationship. All of your information is confidential.
Q: How do the session meetings work?
A: We will meet virtually via phone, Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, or perhaps another medium of mutual agreement. You will need access to the internet and/or a good phone connection.
Q: Can we meet in person?
A: If we happen to both be in the same city at the same time, it's possible! But since we'll likely both have unique artistic and personal schedules to work around, it is generally best to plan on virtual meetings.
Q: How much of my time will this take?
A: Most sessions will range from 45-60 minutes, give or take a few depending on the results we are seeking. Aside from the regularly scheduled sessions, you will have much freedom to do the worksheets and assignments on your own time, and there would almost never be any pressure to have to immediately respond to anything.
Q: What if I can't make my sessions?
A: There is a fair cancellation and rescheduling policy in place just as you would have with most applied instructors or institutions.
Q: What is the cost and how do payments work?
A. Details of the specific investment amount are reserved for discussion later in the application process. Multiple options, scenarios and payment plans will be available depending on your situation. The goal of the program is for you to start making back your investment and then some as soon as possible. Payments are generally accepted via PayPal, Venmo and Zelle.
Q: Do I need to be having a specific kind of career or be at a certain level for this program?
A: No. Anyone whether they are an established professional, emerging professional, college student, graduate student, just starting out after college, retired, or else would be welcome. Each of us is a human with basic needs and wants, experiences, and an endless capacity for greater personal and professional growth. If you are interested in the program and in being in a supportive environment befitting the needs of your own unique development, you're more than welcome to apply and see if the program is a good potential match for you.
