The Care and Feeding of a Visual Practitioner
Throughout the videos, I define your "choice points" to help you navigate your way through your work. Like I say in my sneak peek videos (if you missed them, here's one, two and three), there is no one right way to run your practice. There is room in our field for different professional approaches. That can be freeing or maddening. As your facilitator and guide, it is my job to make your work easier through this course by sharing best practice and outlining your choices. They are your choices to make.
Who is it for?
I welcome anyone who is ready to do the work of strengthening their business and putting the pro into professional graphic facilitator.
You may be:
- Dreaming of being a graphic facilitator “when you grow up” but you don’t know where to start.
- Volunteering as a graphic facilitator, but ready to make this work your paid profession
- Beginning your professional practice, eager for a clear path that gives you traction vs. spinning your wheels
- You are working and getting paid, but sense you can use more systems in place to make your practice more consistent and professional.
- You’ve got a solid or mature practice, but you’re always looking to refine and improve. Or you just need a new jolt of energy in your business.
Who is it NOT for?
Those looking for a quick fix, cookie cutter approach or easy answers. As I’ve said in the videos, there is no one right answer. While I lend my experience and facilitation to lead your through this process, you need to make the choices that are right for you. You need to do your own work between the calls to improve your business.
What is the cost?
The registration fee for the course is $1997 USD. This includes hours of video content across the six business-sharpening topics. There is no expiration date on the videos, you have long term access to all of the course content.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much time will this course take?
A: That truly depends on what you want to invest in your business and the changes you want to make. You decide to do a couple runs of every topic in every module to make your business more robust, or you can pick and choose the topics that are most pressing to your current situation.
Q: All I really need to a sample contract and templates. Do you provide those?
A: No. It is not ethical to give legal advice or hand over templates. I don’t know the specific laws and norms of your country, region, or the industries you work with. Also, I think it is vital that every business person has clarity and control in their contracts and communications. You need to be well informed and to stand behind what you put out there. In this case, I am happy to “teach a man to fish,” but I won’t give you a fish.
Q: What if I find this course isn’t for me?
A: No problem! I offer a no-questions-asked 30 day money-back guarantee.
