One-day Intensive

Re-design your creative business in just 6 hours

Are you an established creative business owner in need of a reboot?

Maybe your creative business has plateaued.

Or maybe your business hasn’t reached the levels of success you want and you’re darned if you can figure out why.

What you do know is you’ve done everything you can—from endlessly tinkering with your website to attending countless webinars and buying yet another online program you’ll never complete.

One thing is crystal clear – trying to figure it out alone isn’t working.

Here’s what they don’t tell you about entrepreneurship. There are so many moving parts, no one figures it out alone. Having access to a thought-partner and co-creator who can hold space for your vision, and support you as you build it, is essential in the development of new ideas, processes, and business models, and the fastest route to reaching the next level of success in your business.

Which is where I come in! As a business coach who specializes in supporting service-based creative entrepreneurs, I provide the frameworks, tools, and support to help you make breakthroughs in their business and revenue.

If you’re the kind of creative who wants to take a deep dive and make some big stuff happen quickly, this one-day intensive coaching session could be the perfect fit for you.

Are you ready to build a more profitable creative business? Read on and let’s find the right one day intensive for you!

MVP Day
(Mission, Vision, and Purpose—teams only)

Are you a creative business owner or leader who sometimes feels like the captain of a rudderless ship?

Tell me if this sounds like you:

  • Your business has undergone a big shift, which might include leadership changes or the result of industry conditions, and is struggling to regain its footing
  • The more your company and team grow, the more “all over the place” and out of control you feel.
  • You don’t know where your precious resources of time, money, and energy are best spent, resulting in wasted time and costly missteps.

If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by the task of getting everyone on the same page and pulling in the same direction, it’s time to stop spinning your wheels.

In this one-day intensive, I will take you and your core leadership team through a framework that will help clarify and articulate your:

  • Core beliefs, values, and behaviors
  • Purpose statement: why your company exists and why it matters
  • Mission statement: the big, audacious, impactful goal your company is trying to achieve

Package to Sell Day
(solopreneurs and teams)

Are you a creative entrepreneur or freelancer who is ready to attract (and land!) higher quality, better paying clients?

Tell me if this sounds like you:

  • Your services page reads like a laundry list of generic capabilities rather than clear solutions to very specific problems.
  • You want to work with fewer, better clients, yet you find yourself saying “yes” to projects that pay too little and demand too much
  • You’re ready to make more money, be more fulfilled, and make more money

In this one-day intensive, I will take you through a framework that will help you:

  • Identify what your ideal clients really want, need, and will pay for
  • Craft 2-3 service offerings to meet those specific needs
  • Outline the process, delivery method, and assets to ensure a reliable and repeatable experience

Marketing Strategy in a Day
(solopreneurs and teams)

Are you a creative entrepreneur or freelancer who hates marketing? You know you need to do it, but figuring it out what to do – heck, where to even start – feels daunting and overwhelming. And so, it remains at the bottom of your list, while that nagging voice keeps telling you to get it done already.

We’ve all been there.

Tell me if this sounds like you:

  • You’re wearing all the hats in your business and find yourself  constantly juggling between creative work, managing projects and clients and bringing in new business. In short, you’re stretched too thin.
  • You’re embarrassed because you know how important marketing is and yet, your efforts are inconsistent at best, and non-existent at worst.
  • You know that if you’re going to build a consistently profitable creative business you need to be marketing, but you just don’t know where to start.

If that sounds familiar, know that (a) you’re not alone and (b) I’ve got you!

In this one-day intensive, I will take you through a framework that will help you:

  • Identify, find, and connect with your ideal clients
  • Create content that speaks directly to your ideal clients’ specific goals and challenges, without ever sounding salesy or inauthentic.
  • Develop a strategy that is aligned with your personality and preferences, efficient, repeatable, and gets results.

How it Works:

Step 1: Free introductory call

Set up a free introductory call with me to discuss your business opportunities and challenges and let’s see if we’re a fit.

Let’s Talk

Step 2: Pre-session discovery and kick-off

Hurray, you’re on-board and ready to reboot your creative business! We’ll kick off your experience with a 45-minute discovery conversation (Zoom or phone) where we will build upon the challenges or opportunities you shared in our introductory call, and identify where it makes most sense to focus our work together. Depending upon your unique needs and outcomes, the day will be divided into 3-4 sessions.

Step 3: Two weeks prior to your big day

  • I will share an in-depth questionnaire custom created to support you in gathering your thoughts, ideas, and information. I will review your questionnaire before your immersion day to ensure we both come to the session fully prepared and ready to jump in
  • We will set up a private shared Google folder where you are free to share any additional material you think might be helpful.

Step 4: On the day

We will meet via Zoom and the day will unfold into the 3-4 sessions we have identified. We will take breaks to recharge and replenish which will be guided by your pacing and needs.

You will also receive:

  • A care package in advance of our day together (because a little goodie bag is always in order!)
  • A shared google folder when all your materials, and recommended resources will be perfectly organized
  • Recordings of each call
  • Recap notes, written by me capturing key points and action steps
  • 30 days of email support following our session where you can ask questions that come up as you implement

Testimonials


“Justine Clay facilitated an offsite for my team that provided exactly the guidance, leadership and energy we needed to develop our core values, mission and the behaviors that go along with them. Justine is such an energetic, engaging leader! She helped navigate us through a journey we could have never got through on our own. Her blueprint for the day was a perfect tool to outline the tasks we set out to accomplish. Her thoughtful and thought-provoking discussion got my group talking and thinking deeply. We were fully engrossed and engaged. Not only is Justine an amazing Business Coach for the long-term needs that I have, she’s also a wonderful facilitator for a one-off session like we had. I would highly recommend bringing Justine in to work with your team if you want to walk away with real, tangible results that will have a deep impact. She doesn’t just show up. She makes it happen.”

—Jill Tapia, CEO, Cornerstone Strategic Branding

“I started working with Justine when I was at a crossroads in my business. Everything was on the table...including walking away.

Justine helped me put systems in place and gain valuable perspective on my goals and the concrete steps that I can take to achieve them.

I can honestly say that my business is thriving in large part because of Justine's guidance. I feel confident that I have the tools to tackle the roadblocks ahead, and know that she is there to support me when the next plateau hits. I feel so lucky to have worked with Justine, and cannot recommend her highly enough!”

—Michele Wesson, Interior Designer and founder of Boucher Interiors

“Justine has been rocket fuel for my business. After working with her, I’m charging 3x my regular rate, knowing I can deliver results. I have more high quality clients now than I can keep up with. Thank you Justine, such a pleasure!”

—Melissa Lind, founder of Dwelling Creative

“Working with Justine was the best decision I could have made! I have recently decided to pivot my career focus, but was having a hard time articulating exactly what it was I wanted to do. I knew I had all the pieces of the puzzle but needed an outside perspective to help me focus and concentrate my efforts. Justine was extremely helpful: first emphasizing the need to pare down my offerings (even though I can do something doesn’t mean that I have to), as well as the need to bring everything under one umbrella so that prospective clients can get the full picture. I now feel fully equipped to create a new positioning statement and start networking with a clear message. Working with Justine gave me the clarity to move forward confidently and effectively.”

—Sarah Jones, Artist and Art Director

“Justine is a brilliant “creative whisperer”. Working with her as I switched paths and started my company, brought me clarity, confidence and most importantly, sanity. Her process is based on logical and actionable steps and her reassuring calm and fun demeanor gave me the confidence I needed. She was instrumental in helping me create a clear plan for building a successful business.”

—Alex Bates, Creative Director, founder, Flint & Kent

“My experience working with Justine Clay was amazing! Having worked with other coaches who end up being "therapists" or "guidance counselors", Justine was a partner. She got involved in the work- helping me to curate my collection, write and rewrite my statements, plan the design, layout and content for my website all in one day! I felt that she was more than a coach but rather a business partner. My only regret is that I didn't work with her sooner!”

—Alyssa Peek, Photographer and Artist

FAQs:

Four to eight team members is perfect.

The recordings and materials are yours to keep. I ask that you download them to your own drive within 30 days so we can delete them from our drive. You will receive a reminder email before we delete anything.

The 30 days of email support begins 72 hours after the completion of your VIP day.

To support you in maintaining your momentum while the information is still fresh (and to help Justine do the same), we do not offer any extensions on the 30 days of support.

We require 50% of the fee to secure your spot in Justine’s calendar, with the remaining 50% due 48 hours before the session.

Due to the time intensive nature of preparing and scheduling a one-day intensive, we require 72 hours notice to reschedule a virtual day. If you wish to cancel your VIP day, we require notification prior to your kick off session (which happens 2 weeks prior to the day). If we receive notice prior to the kick off session, we will refund you your 50% deposit. In the event that you cancel after the kick-off session, the 50% deposit will not be refunded.
