You've got the creative piece nailed, now it's time to master the business side!

After working alongside thousands of creative entrepreneurs, I took the most confusing, frustrating, frequently asked (and frequently wine-and-tears accompanied) business concepts—financial planning, strategy, scale, mindset—and simplified them.

"It is 150% already changing my business + team for the better."

Event Planner

Just wanted to send over a BIG virtual hug for this training! It is 150% already changing my business + team for the better. Thank you, Shanna, for so generously sharing your wisdom. The Art Of the Sale absolutely transformed how I was thinking about sales within my business and with my team. Unlike most, I LOVE, yes LOVE SALES and typically leave a sales webinar only feeling more confirmed in my current practices. Well, Shanna gave me a good kick in the butt and dose of inspiration with this one. We're revamping our client survey, creating a sales checklist... all the things. Shanna is an inspiration and true gift to the creative community.

“Shanna, you're the only biz consultant I listen to. Tangent: I've followed blogs, newsletters and podcasts of other creative business consultants and feel like you are so knowledgable about business based on your financial background and professionalism. I like that you don't get too cutesy if that makes sense but are are about the numbers.”

“I love how she specifically breaks down the reality of what works and what doesn't. She has an amazing way of cleaning up the confusion and really simplifying the process. Her approach is based upon knowledge and action steps while she is still extremely encouraging of finding true passion and following your heart's desires.”

Shanna is like the best friend that comes into your house when you’re in your PJs with messy hair, your kids are crying and the dishes are piled high. I seriously wanted to reach into the screen a few times and give her a big hug because she spoke right to me as a creative entrepreneur. If you can’t afford this program, sell something in your house to take it.

You need to know all these things and act on them now, or they will haunt you later. And even if you know all or most of this material, having a guide makes it so much more likely you’ll take action.

"The pricing formula was key!! Narrowing it all down to a formula was great, and I loved your recommendation that we move towards that price 10% at a time."

Curator Teak & Twine 

NEXT

This definitely made an impact on me and the business! I also loved what you said about the 80/20 rule. I had heard of it before but it was so worthwhile to think about it again in terms of not just the most difficult clients, but to actually think about where 80% of income is coming from. I realized that spending more time building networks with our corporate clients vs trying to land another wedding was key.

"Blueprint gives stress-free structure for the stressed creative. You don’t have to be overwhelmed by #allthethings."

Brand designer Creme Brands 

next

Sure, you’ve scoured the internet for ways to make your business better, but have you really implemented those lessons with a well-ordered plan? You CAN make a plan, work it, and see your business work for you. With Blueprint, you have more than a teacher. You have an encourager who breaks it down step by step and gives you a very comprehensive look at, honestly, just about every area you need help with in your business.

Love, the wife of a man who pulled $600 out this week and has told me sure I can get LL Bean boots if I save up 2 weeks of my fun money...and he used to hate budgets and think they were stupid. You and Jesus have changed us. I love you!

"This class has been beyond helpful for me! You helped me adjust my pricing to get that 40/60 margin, I went well beyond reaching my six-figure sales goal for the year, and you opened my eyes to things I had no idea were happening in my business!"

That's the section that made me a true believer, I started telling everyone about your class. I'm still implementing some things, and I don't fully know all my numbers and exactly how my monthly sales goals will break down, but I've made a WORLD of advances since starting your course. Thanks again!”

Creativity takes courage after all! I'm feeling so much better in my business because I'm in control and I'm not being controlled by my customer. This is the best money I've spent in my life, which is saying a lot because the second best money I've ever spent was to go see Beyonce in concert. You're ahead of Beyonce.

Without pursuing any new business, I have had two more 3-month contracts signed since completing the program, and the 6-month contract that I started while in the program still has 3-months left. I have recommended Blueprint to 3 other creative business owners who you may hear from for coaching calls in the near future. All of them are super impressed with how much I gained from the program and have set into place before launching my business.

"I just wanted to share with you that as of last week I have met my sales goal for the year! When I set my goal last fall it felt very ambitious and scary and so it feels equally exciting and happy to have met the goal!"

I am so grateful! I want to cry about how happy and light I feel at this moment. I realized that with my new spending plan I truly am able to pay off all my debt and I should be able to do it in under a year! Plus start a retirement account plus have money to help with my families general expenses. I have felt so burdened and stressed by money for so long and I know feel truly empowered! Amazing.

Know your hard work helps others and you should be so proud of yourself. I've complete 13/18 of my sales goals already based on money brought in. And I feel 110% confident in exceeding it. It's so nice to know where I stand on the year so I don't undercut my services or skills. Credit card balance is at zero and money saved is constantly rising. That freedom is so much. Thanks so much for Blueprint!

next 

It has been such a journey figuring out pricing: learning about emotional pricing, burning at both ends, and finally coming to a place where I really understand what I need to charge to stay in business and sane. Shanna coached me through all these muddy waters and I’m so so glad other people can benefit from her wise coaching.

"The Blueprint Model teaches you how to be a better business owner. Whether you’re a designer, a florist or a vintage rental company. It can go across the whole gamete."

It’s easy to sit around and say I need to have this or I should have that… but you’re so busy running a small business you just don’t have time. This program carves out time to sit down, to plan, to dream. To talk to other creatives struggling with the same things. At the end of the process actually having a budget on paper, goals written down… Sitting down to take the time to do those things. It’s invaluable. 

Abany Bauer

"I was really drained. I was just done, ready to walk away. And I knew if I didn’t find something or someone I was just going to go get a 9-5 and be done. When I came to Blueprint I was desperate. "

Shanna has a way of speaking encouragement back into you. “What you are doing is incredible, you should be doing this, and everything you’re doing is right we just need to adjust a few things to make it more sustainable. I love the fact that Shanna wants to encourage whats happening from the heart from the inside out.
