You Deserve To Make Money In Your Creative Business Without Struggling. Don’t Do It Alone!

As A Creative, You Are Unique. You Have Unique Skills, Challenges, And Needs.

If you’re reading this page, there’s a good chance you’ve been plodding through your creative business, trying to make a decent living but feeling like you’re constantly on a treadmill, and not really sure what to do next.  A lot of what self employed entrepreneurs deal with is trying to find clarity, and direction in their business but not knowing how to do that.  

They try to do everything by themselves, and that just doesn’t work.  Sound familiar?

It usually goes something like this:
You love to create, and you want to do two things…be validated in your craft, and make a living you can feel good about.

You know you need to figure how to market yourself better online but the thought sends you running to your studio where you can listen to your favorite music, sling some paint and avoid the whole thing.

You have Imposter Syndrome (I’m not good enough), are fearful of being seen, and judged, and dread the technology, and marketing.

You know these challenges are holding you back but you just don’t know where turn so it’s just another excuse to avoid it.

I get it.  We all deal with this at one time or another.  Don’t let it hold you back.  You have so much to offer the world.  It would be a shame not to share it out of fear or procrastination.

 

I’m Here To Help You Build Your Creative Business And Live YOUR Best Life!

 

I’m a Mixed Media Artist myself.  I sell my art, and do some commission work, and I love being in my studio.  I have a personal goal to continue to work in the styles I love, and develop a body of work.  So…I know how it goes.  I had to work hard to figure out how to balance helping other artists grow their businesses, while also having enough creative time for myself.

 

I love helping other artists and creatives build their businesses.  I’ve been building businesses, and helping others build businesses my entire adult life.  I thrive on strategy, and thinking outside the box.

So I figured out how to do both.  My schedule changes from month to month so by opening up slots to help creatives 1:1, I’m finding a more efficient, more successful outcome for both of us.  This allows complete flexibility for my clients, and me, to have the time to create, and pursue the things we love to do.  Life should be joyful, and full of experiences, not stressful, and full of arduous work.

What Other Creatives Have Said

I have helped dozens of self employed, creative entrepreneurs just like you clarify their goals, embrace technology, and marketing, and grow their creative businesses.  It doesn’t happen overnight.  It takes commitment, and consistency.  But having someone who can save you so much time, money, and frustration so you don’t give up, is key to your success!
“[]I was strongly considering diving into teaching online workshops, but I had absolutely no idea how to go about it. Then along came Terry Eldridge who had already spent a great deal of time figuring out just what I needed to know. I consider her a gift to my career. She showed me what equipment was needed to do my own filming, what programs to use for editing, and she provided critical marketing expertise. Having the ability to offer classes online and create a steady flow of income has given me peace during these uncertain times. It is so awesome to have students all over the world taking my classes right now! None of this would have been possible without the assistance from Terry. I would still have been just sitting in my studio thinking about making the change and not taking action.  Terry, you have literally changed my life!

“Terry helped me to fulfill my dream of getting my classes online. I have struggled doing this myself for over a decade. Her help and knowledge are priceless! I couldn’t have done it without her! She continues to help me with all of my technology, and online marketing needs!”

“Until I joined Terry,  I had not taught any of my art workshops online. I had no experience with filming or video editing. My experience had been in person or live online instruction. Terry helped me select the right equipment and software to make my own high quality online workshops. This has also been a wonderful creative community. It is one of the few online communities that provides support, collaboration, training, and interaction with other instructors and students. The idea of a collective creative community is what intrigued me the most. As an artist, I think we need a creative community to be a part of. One that freely shares ideas and supports its members.”

Your Money Story And How It Affects Your Everyday Life

Your Money Story And How It Affects Your Everyday Life

We all have one: a money story. Our own money story begins to work its way into our brains in early childhood when we witness whatever the money stories of our parents or their parents were while we were growing up. Getting to the bottom of your money story is an important exercise in understanding why you treat money the way you do, good or bad, and helps you determine whether you should make some changes. 

The Covid Opportunity

The Covid Opportunity

People are now used to doing things online.  If you were teaching live art classes prior to the pandemic, your students are probably expecting you to do online classes!  If you weren’t teaching prior to the pandemic, now is the time to seriously consider it as a surefire way to grow your business, give you more free time, and complete freedom over that time, your income, and your freedom.

Hey Artists! Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

Hey Artists! Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

The internet and social media give us so much information on what our peers, and competitors are doing, thinking and achieving. Some of these insights are definitely useful. We can learn a lot about our industry as a whole, identify trends, and gain inspiration. However, constantly comparing yourself can cause harm in more ways than one.
