Dates: August 12 - November 10, 2019
Meet my client, Olivia Feldman, Fine Art Photographer
Within the couple months I’ve been working with Michelle, I’ve booked over $16,000 worth of shoots…
Hey babe! Are you…
A talented photographer, painter, or a painter AND photographer who is altruistic, productive, and loved by many, wanting to get paid to do what you love? But you find yourself separating your “commercial work” to make $ and hiding your fine art paintings and photographs thinking THOSE originals won’t sell?
Afraid of “selling out”?
A woman artist who displays your work online on IG + have a great following with raving fans, but your followers are not buying?
A woman painter and/or photographer who has shown your work a lot thanks to the artist run spaces you depend on to promote your work to the SAME art world clique audiences, but you never *ACTUALLY* sell the work you display (for free btw) while you are hustling your ass off working 3+ gigs or in a full time job that is not aligned?
A woman painter and/or photographer who is dependent on grants (or a partner) to pursue passion projects you do not get paid for, while you most likely work a non profit arts job or as an adjunct teaching for very little pay?
Exhausted and just wanna chill in Miami with other Women Artpreneurs and an art biz coach like myself at The Standard Hotel & Spa November 9 - 10, 2019?
Well then, mark your calendar. And Welcome! You came to the right place.
I get it gurl. I too used to be like that...wearing many hats in the arts for the past 10+ years doing anything for clout… trying to get that grant, or curate that next show while literally being *THAT* STARVING ARTIST….
Until I had a panic attack that changed my altruistic and unworthy, ways forever.
That’s when I had to finally put my own oxygen mask first before continuing to showcase my talents via passion projects and artist run shows while over drafting my bank account every week.
I hit rock bottom and moved back home to Miami, FL. I went to the beach, looked through my entire career, found my golden thread…and met my higher self.
That’s when I started the first arts event planning company dedicated to curating art exhibits for weddings. I sold my first art exhibition for over $10k with NO business training, well....cuz art school doesn’t want you to have a bigger pool! #majorkeyalert
But seriously, art skool doesn’t prep artists for a truly sustainable and independent arts practice where you are not emotionally and financially dependent on museums, galleries, and grants that are not guaranteed to fund your next ego-driven social practice project (aka the arts non profit industrial complex).
After starting my company and not having the guidance or emotional capacity & intelligence to continue growing, I hired my first life, love, and business coach who changed my life!
Since then, I have been a successful artpreneur who has invested more than $40,000 into coaches to scale my businesses, improve my money management skills, public speaking skills, writing skills, and personal EQ skills to break up with all forms of scarcity, abuse, and toxicity in my life in order to hit six figures in less than a year.
And guess what?
I am now giving you all of this knowledge through this online Mastermind for Women Painters & Women Photographers who want to be truly independent and THRIVE rather than survive.
This Mastermind is for Women identifying photographers and painters in the U.S who want to:
Radically and honestly analyze what areas of life they are fulfilled and not so fulfilled
Gain clarity on their purpose via finding their Golden Thread via a DIY google doc exercise that will be analyzed by an artist-curator-biz coach, aka yours truly!
Meet their higher self
Develop a simple yet purposeful, mission driven, dreamy and clear business plan that aligns with their emotional and lifestyle needs
Practice self love and self care by strengthening their EQ, adopt healthier money mindsets, and learn healthy habits for best Artpreneurial Practices to grow their business
Create a lifetime network of like minded Women Artpreneurs
Meet my client, Shenequa Brooks, “Painter” and Creative Coach
Working with Michelle has been a life-changing experience for the best because I went from being an Artist to an Artprenuer…. I hired her with a Master's degree under my belt, awarded the inaugural YoungArts Daniel Arsham Fellow, sold 2 out of 6 artworks at EXPO Chicago sponsored by YoungArts while working a 9-5 corporate job. I was just tired of not doing what I love full-time and getting paid for it…
