Getting your creative life and business vision and mission rock solid is one of the most powerful ways to transform your life and biz. Christina Giorgio will help you develop practical skills to get your Creative Vision and Mission in focus and on your way to success.
Do you find yourself pulled in many directions, saying yes to almost all opportunities that come your way? Are you feeling off course? Are you unclear about where you want to be in a week, month, year or even for this lifetime? Are you often unmotivated or burnt out? Do you struggle to articulate your holistic, creative life vision? Is your marketing failing to connect or attract your ideal clients? Are you unclear on exactly who the market is for your creative work? Is the list of creative products you have available unfocused, inconsistent or non existent? If someone asks you what you do as a creator do you struggle to jump right back and explain it to them with crystal clarity?
If your answer to any of these questions, this workshop is for you!
