FOUNDATIONS

A curated small group experience to lay your creative business foundations

Foundations will open again in Summer 2023

This specially curated small group will walk you through a 10-week success path to set up all the priority foundations of your creative business.

 

Doors Open May 2023

As a small group member of Foundations, you know you want to launch a creative business this year, but you just don't know what your next steps should be. You have a long to-do list and it's overwhelming to know where to start and how to tackle so many new tasks...

 

I had so many amazing resources available to me BUT no one showed me how to take those first few early steps, and I wish I had more help with the foundations when I was just starting out...

  I am OH-SO familiar with the mixed feeling of deep desire + overwhelm as you look ahead to launching your business in the very beginning. Now that I'm on the other side, I'm just a few steps ahead and ready to take you by the hand to set your foundations and flourish.

That's why I'm offering this special group. I want to give you what I wish I had when I started: A road map for successfully laying your very first business foundations!

It's been my experience that solid foundations set the stage for possibilities, opportunities and success.

Curated Group coaching is strategic coaching focused on YOU that removes overwhelm with care, helps you discern priorities, and offers both

encouragement + accountability

for the unique challenges that a creative entrepreneur like you faces as they launch their business. Creative Coaching takes you from a place of being overwhelmed, stalled, and stuck and guides you into a space of confidence and discernment as you make real progress on your business journey.

Colleen is such a gem to work with. She is so personable and kind, it's like sitting down to visit with a dear friend rather than purposefully breaking down the struggles in your business. Her ability to help you decide what is truly important to you and your business, and not impose her thoughts on the process is key, but at the same time, she has outstanding suggestions as to what tactics will give you the best chances to shine.

Colleen has helped me in so many ways, but I think one of the most impactful was helping me clarify the direction I should go in and giving me the confidence to trust my instincts. Anyone who is struggling to focus, needs encouragement, or needs direction with where to take their creative business would benefit from working with Colleen. Colleen makes you feel heard and understood, while giving you solid action steps to take. I would highly recommend her to any creative.

Colleen set up clear objectives for our coaching session together, kept our time on track and followed up with a summary. It was seamless, productive, and fun. I felt comforted by her attentiveness and her ability to distill my plan into actionable steps. Adding a timeframe to remain accountable has helped me focus on the tasks that count right now while letting go of things that can wait- freeing up time and headspace.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need?

You will need a computer with access to Zoom, a Voxer account, and a suggested budget of $400-$1200 USD for start-up costs. I will send you a zoom link before each session where we will meet.

How will we communicate?

I will communicate with this group by email, Zoom, and Voxer.

What is the Voxer channel for?

I believe that we need a lot of encouragement and accountability to see our dreams and plans become reality. Inbetween group coaching sessions and peer feedback sessions, the group can communicate, share and encourage one another on this voice messaging channel. I will participate several times per week as well. I want you to know you are not alone!

How often will we meet?

We will meet twice weekly for 10 weeks. One call is content-based coaching and the other is focused on individual feedback through peer conversation.

What if I still have more questions?

Still not sure if this group coaching is for you? I’m here for you- email me at colleen@colleenannalea with your questions or concerns and we can start a conversation to help you decide if now is a good time to jump in.

What if I have to miss a call?

Don't worry. I'm a mom and a wife and wear a lot of other hats. I know how busy life gets. All calls will be recorded and sent to you. You can always watch a replay if you can't make a live call.

What if I don't have a budget for start-up costs right now?

I would encourage you to wait until you can set aside an intentional budget for start-up costs. It takes a few purchases to get your business rolling and I want this time to be successful for you! :)

What if I don't even have a business name or clarity yet?

That's exactly what this group is for. If you are clear that you want a creative business, this group will walk you through the rest.

What is your refund policy?

I desire that you have a great experience working with me. This group will be limited to 8 seats. Please understand that this is how I care for my family too :) and no refunds will be offered after you purchase. If you're unsure, just wait or email me your questions. 

If there is any way I can serve you in the future, please let me know at colleen@colleenannalea.com.

Warmly, Colleen
