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.
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). What if we told you we can show you how to work less, offer less, create less, and still make more (yes, like cash dollars)?
Together we’ve taught thousands of small business owners from all over the world in various niches. The methods we teach work whether you offer physical items in a retail or online location, digital products or services or in-person services. We’ve got you covered.
We’ve helped everyone from a geek chic apparel retailer to a hand letterer to a custom skateboard artist. A lot of our students have come to us as committed “side-hustlers” and through the strategies and support we give them (with loads of their own hard work) leave happy full-time money making creatives. Will you be the next to graduate?
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 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.
Running a business is probably the craziest decision you ever made. You love it, but are overwhelmed with all the nitty gritty details. How on earth are you supposed to be head of every department for your business while also running your business? Well, friend, we’ve got you.
Consider yourself home here at Think Creative Collective. We help overwhelmed and creative entrepreneurs create a functioning command center to tame the chaos of their business. We’ve got happy and hustling students from all over the world who are both brand spankin’ new and a little bit seasoned in their business. At Think Creative Collective we strive to pivot the creative community from keepers of secrets to givers of tactics and strategies. When we unlock something (anything) we’re ready to turn around and deliver it right to you so you can get to kicking business booty. Because here’s the beef:
"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
When you begin to treat your business like a business there’s a massive shift. Not only will that legitability (yes, that’s a new word) seep out into everything you do, but it will begin to attract people who are ready to say “yes!” to what you offer. When you shake off the “I’m just doing this as a hobby” mentality you will be rewarded.
