"It’s only been six months, and I have already achieved so much! I have never felt more creatively energized or more excited about the future. I constantly have 100 things on my to-do list, and I’m excited for each one! I won’t stop here. TAW has given me the momentum to grow myself and my business, and has taken me farther than I ever could have come on my own."

mar 2018-Sep 2018

I needed pure guidance and a plan, and TAW gave me that! TAW helped me hone in on my aesthetic and start branding myself in a way that would attract people to my work. I had never had people truly interested in my work before. I knew my work was good. I believed I had the experience and the talent. I just needed a plan.

As soon as I connected with Emma, I knew that TAW was the exact path I needed to take to start my full-time art business. This program had everything I didn’t know I needed: 

a step-by-step plan to guide me through launching and growing my business, a calendar and timeline to help me time each step in the process, real, concrete business strategies, access to a supportive and helpful community--and it had Emma! I felt a connection to her as a person, as well as to her program, and her individualized guidance and advice has helped me transform my hobby into a flourishing business. I truly feel that TAW was an answer to my prayers and helped me know exactly what I needed to do to make my business successful.

Since enrolling in TAW, I have completely made back the cost of the course in less than four months, which speaks volumes on how radically this has transformed my business. And there are still tons of strategies offered in the course that I have yet to apply! One of my first steps after starting TAW was hosting an Instagram live sale of my very first collection of paintings.

At the time my businesses account had exactly 112 followers… and a big chuck of them were my mom and her friends. I was terrified that no one would watch the sale, and that I wouldn’t sell a single piece. During the live session, I showed 12 pieces. I sold 8 of them that night, and over the next few days, I sold two more! I was blown away! Without this course I would not know the potential my artwork had or how many people would want to buy it! I held back colors, experimented with techniques, and gave me the confidence to host a live sale. Going from 100 followers to selling almost all of my pieces means taking this leap was what I was meant to do. As I followed the course, I posted an Instagram story of a sketch I was working on, and everyone begged for more! I released it as a print, and it is currently flying out the door! The print led to inquiries about custom orders and, with TAW’s guidance, I have been able to run with it. Today, I have quadrupled my followers on Instagram.

I launched my Etsy shop and have plans to release a Fall art collection soon--and I plan to have TAW guide me through that as well! In total, I have earned over $2,000 since starting my business in January. Before enrolling in TAW, I made $0. It’s only been six months, and I have already achieved so much! I have never felt more creatively energized or more excited about the future. I constantly have 100 things on my to-do list, and I’m excited for each one! I won’t stop here. TAW has given me the momentum to grow myself and my business, and has taken me farther than I ever could have come on my own.

Worth. Every. Penny. And. More."

"Before TAW, I was truly starting from the beginning of the beginning. I had just quit my job to be an artist full time, hoping to make a successful business out of what had previously been a hobby. All I had was a very rough website, lots of paintings that were not cohesive, and an Instagram that was nowhere near professional.

Come on, now. Do we really need to answer this question? She is her and you are you and there is no possible way to repeat exact successes without doing severe damage to you and your creative calling. You are not meant to do what she's done. Not because of any silly idea about who is more talented or inherently more valuable, but because you are unique, and so is your destiny. So we won't be cookie-cutter-ing you. If you feel a desire to accomplish similar things, that's great. Most of all, take that as a sign that you desire to do something as big and grand as this wonderful person, not that you want to do exactly what she's done.

The current marketing ways teach us that if we buy the exact things we will get exact results. This leads to pain. Instead, pay attention to how you feel. How you feel inspired as you realize that success is possible. And this is what it's looked like for her. But yours? Oh, my dear. It's going to be so much more beautiful than what you're even imagining now. Promise.

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. 

I can't wait to support you in your dreams.
