Don't Get Good at What You Don't Want to Be Doing: Seminar poster

About this Course

Artists and healers are sensitive, creative people who work from their passion, spirit, social purpose and sense of service. Often, it is for these very reasons the idea of contextualizing, or properly executing, what they do as "a business" presents personal conflict, overwhelm and self-limiting beliefs.

Yet, the creation of a practical marketing plan can help them to clarify their goals, connect with their preferred audience or clients, give them the tools to communicate what is unique about what they do and educate their public on solutions that they have to their problems.

This specialized course takes creative, non-traditional approaches to business skills development that takes into account the emotional blocks affecting the artist and healer as business owner and their business itself.

"Don't Get Good..." encourages participants to connect mindfulness to their choice of marketing techniques by combining journaling exercises, readings, weekly discussions and mentorship. Upon completion, you will have developed a personalized year-long action plan, comprised of a promotional strategy, sales model and fresh ideas.
