what our members have to say:

You just got a VIP pass behind the scenes!

If you’ve ever wondered: 

How do I create a portfolio that gets me clients month after month? 
Should I get a sales rep, and, uh… how? 
What is consignment design?
How many revenue streams should I have?

Then you also know the limited industry resources leave you wanting more information and expert guidance!

When I started my print design studio in 2012, I pieced together what I knew about business and learned from trial and error. I craved real world examples and mentors who’d been there, done that. 

But, no magical map appeared with shortcuts and I’m thankful for where I am today because it led to creating roadmaps for others. I decided to shift the story for up-and-comers and, now, I educate and coach print designers on how to build a money-making, creative career they love! 

You can build a successful print design business.
