Emma's groundbreaking Advanced Creative Entrepreneurship & Business (or The Sublime Clamber, as insiders like to call it) is a beta experience built to support you every step of the way as you grow and lead your team.
For the next few terms, we are building this curriculum from scratch in the beta experience. The requirement to be in the beta program is that you have a built a business model that is both aligned to your creative vision AND scalable, and you have either already hired employees or are making moves to hire employees as soon as possible.
By being part of a beta group, you'll have the chance to shape the curriculum with your experiences, be in an intimate small group experience as Emma works through these questions in her own business, and so much more.
The unique, innovative tools that allow us to seamlessly align creativity and business are what we call Sacred Stories. Sacred Stories are specific memories that act as single points of inspiration to inspire your business. With Sacred Stories, we can jump effortlessly between creative questions and business questions because they are actually one and the same.
Each core program (Intro to, Intermediate, or Advanced Creative Entrepreneurship & Business) introduces and dives deeply into your growing library of Sacred Stories to organically and beautifully develop your business.
Sacred Stories in Advanced Creative Entrepreneurship & Business (so far):
Team Story: a well of inspiration to guide you in building, leading, and delegating to your team.
Emma Natter is our current and only coach. She's been leading creatives to alignment and success since 2017. She holds a deep belief that business can be a beautiful instrument for creatives to fulfill their deeper calling. You'll find in-depth stories of people's experiences and achievements working 1-1 with her and in her programs all across this site.
However, as our school grows, we have no desire for massive amounts of students and only one coach. We want to preserve the intimate cohort experience that made our beta school so magical, which means bringing in more coaches to facilitate this kind of experience.
We're on the lookout for more coaches who love to dive deep into the intersection of creativity and business, who have succeeded in both, who believe in the potential of our students, and who have the intuitive/analytical/obsessive love for finding alignment with students and their Sacred Stories.
Founder of the EN School of Creative Entrepreneurship
I've been working with creative entrepreneurs for four years, helping thousands of people get clarity on their purpose by finding their Heart Story, and helping hundreds of creatives launch their businesses with my unique, creative processes. It's still unbelievable to me sometimes that using these methods has helped people to do things like make hundreds of thousands of dollars, buy their home, become the breadwinners for their families, tell their story in their own voice, sell out painting collections, and so much more.
I started my business in a small New York City apartment after my husband and I were both unemployed. I took some Home Depot supplies and opened a photography styling shop online. That morphed into consulting and coaching, and I've been obsessed with the intersection of creativity and entrepreneurship ever since.
I created The EN School of Creative Entrepreneurship because I believe that you have something deep within you that you are meant to create. And yet, most of the help out there is either creativity focused and shirks business, or business focused and doesn't understand the creative heart. And you're left to do most of the translating between the two worlds alone.
Without the marriage of these two things, and without people around me to support me, my business progress failed over and over again. But once I figured out how to align creativity and business, and fostered relationships with kindred spirits, everything changed.
I am living a creative life, I am the breadwinner for my family, and I am so excited for what I am building. I feel deeply that I am creating what I'm meant to create, which is the short answer for why I created this school. She wanted to be created, and she chose me.
In The EN School of Creative Entrepreneurship, I am not playing the mentor-who-knows-everything. Instead, I see myself as the gardener who nurtures the soil, turns on the sprinklers, checks on the plants, talks to them, closes the gates, prunes the fruit trees, researches and intuits obsessively about how to bring more abundance and joy into the garden, and shares her experience when it's relevant. I show up here for you because I believe in what you are creating.
