by Tara Agacayak on May 25, 2017

Are you dreaming about a creative venture? pexels-photo-296878 (1)

One that brings you recognition for your unique background?

Or a venture that generates a significant amount of income?

Or one that allows you to satisfy your creative self-expression?

If you are in the beginning stages (i.e. the idea stage) and you would like to take some steps forward and see quick results, you might like this training I gave on how to use your network to launch your creative venture.

So, if you want to:

  • Bring in income quickly
  • Bring on clients fast
  • Get invited to speak on your topic of specialization
  • Land your first contract
  • Pilot test your idea

 

Then watch this training video for the four-step system that can help you tap into your network to get you up and running quickly.

 

Networking for your creative venture

This is the same system that I’ve used to consistently grow my coaching business over the past nine months

I developed this system by watching and learning from my mentors and working with 6- and 7-figure coaches.

And it is the same system I use with my clients who are doing things like:

  • Launching art-promotion businesses
  • Developing a line of high-end accessories
  • Growing photography businesses that exceed income goals
  • Building high-end coaching businesses
  • Expanding health-based service businesses
  • Establishing recruiting businesses
  • Producing award-winning films
  • Launching top-selling books
  • Establishing multi-million dollar investment funds

When you use this four-step system, you will be able to grow your venture faster and develop a reputation sooner.

Perhaps your head is full of ideas to launch your own venture. You are excited and ready to take action, but you aren’t sure where to begin to get your first speaking gig.

Or you have a number of paintings in your collection, and you would like to organize an exhibition, but you don’t know who to reach out to first.

It might feel like the options and ideas are numerous and your head is all over the place, so you can’t really make a plan to get started – as excited and motivated as you are.

Not to worry!

Follow these four steps to put your ideas into a plan, and your plan into action.

Watch the video training here.

And if you’d like a personalized help with any of the steps I teach in the video, sign up for a creative launch planning session. We will review where you are in your launch cycle, and I will give you my advice on what you can do to move yourself along in order to launch your venture. Contact me to set up your session.

Are you in the Idea Phase of launching your creative venture?

 

pexels-photo-316466You know you’re in this phase if:
  • your head is full of ideas
  • you have difficulty focusing
  • you get easily distracted
  • you feel like you’re “all over the place”
  • you have more questions than answers and this is preventing you for moving forward
I recently did a training in the Creative Impact Studio outlining how a morning routine can help give you structure and focus so that you can channel this creative energy into productivity, action and results – like launching your venture!

 

 

I’ve spent a lot of time studying how influential and successful people begin their day.

 

Which is why I like this framework by Hal Elrod who wrote the book, The Miracle Morning, because he has taken the most common activities successful people do to start their day and created an easy-to-remember and easy-to-implement framework called: SAVERS (see more detail below).

 

Having a morning routine built on this framework is how I’ve been able to increase my income consistently since last September – both by raising my rates and by bringing on more clients.

 

It’s also how I’ve been able to increase my income by working smarter, not necessarily harder.

 

And I’ve done this during an attempted military coup here in Turkey and suffering heartbreaking disappointments on my path to motherhood.

 

Having a morning routine has helped me keep my focus and motivation despite the trauma and chaos going on around me.

And it’s working for my clients and community members as well.

One of our community members reports that consistently doing this ONE thing in her morning routine has helped her effortlessly bring in an extra $2k.

So, if you are feeling like you are full to bursting with ideas, full of excitement that is hard to focus and channel into productive energy or you have more questions than answers that are keeping you from getting started, watch the replay of this training that is built on the following framework.

I’ve outlined SAVERS here with some brief notes and resources.

 Silence

Affirmations

Visualizations

Exercise

  • Revs up your energy
  • Gets oxygen pumping in your body
  • Strengthens your heart and lungs and muscles
  • Gets your endorphins up!
  • For even better benefits, go outside and get near water or be in nature

Reading

Scribing/Writing

  • Write in your journal every morning.
  • I use this time to write affirmations, visualizations, prayers, dreams, frustrations, asking for guidance about what I should do.
  • Writing gets it into physical form – out of your mind and onto paper.

Set yourself up for success

I wanted to give you this training to help you create your own, customized system that will give you structure and keep you grounded so that you can channel your ideas into action and results (and income if that’s your goal).

Without structure during the Idea Phase of the Creative Launch Cycle, you risk spending extra energy, extra time and getting less done because your energy is “all over the place”

But having structure as part of your morning routine, and committing to doing this consistently (even if it’s only 10-minutes a day) starts your day with a win and sets the tone for the rest of the day, week, etc.

Is money masculine or feminine?

When I decided to start my coaching practice, I became a business owner.
