Do you ever wish someone would just hand you a blueprint of what to do and when in order to create success?
I've got you covered :-)
In the Creative Business Collective I'll show you how to build your own unique success blueprint.
It's flexible because I know that you love your freedom! Yet it gives you clear, practical steps to follow to build your success.
Foundations such as building your email list, growing your audience and managing your cashflow are all included.
So you will have a strong and stable foundation for your creative business.
Clarity breeds success.
Creativity truly thrives when it has enough structure and clarity to create a safe container.
Learn how to ditch the overwhelm, get focused and stay on track with expert input from project manager, executive coach, author and artist, Joanne Murphy (that's me :-)).
Discover the simple systems you need to underpin your creative freedom. (Plus how to implement them)
You'll master time empowerment to create more space and time for the things that truly matter to you.
I'll show you how to create time leverage so you can pour more of your energy into the creative work that lights you up.
Ah. Like a long cool glass of water on a hot summer's day ... you can drink deeply from the well of inspiration that you'll find in the Creative Business Collective.
Practical how-to's are vital, yet so is mindset and inspiration!
New masterclasses every month will help you conquer creative fears and doubts, grow your business and yes, even enchant your muse!
Refreshing perspectives from myself and other creative souls will awaken your curiosity and feed your creativity.
Inspiration is like a muscle that needs regular exercise, and when you do that -
a. it's fun, and
b. it keeps your work fresh and exciting!
What a beautiful win!
Building a business around your creative passions (& maybe also around your family) is not a walk in the park. There are SO many moving pieces! If just trying to keep on top of it all is making you want to tear your hair out, don't worry, you're not alone... I hear that from many creatives, and I'm here to help.
I'm Joanne Murphy and I want to help you to succeed in building and growing your creative business online. As a creative with a long history in project management and executive coaching, I want to reassure you that it doesn't have to be overwhelming - I promise.
Success that comes with burn-out is not really success. We're human beings, not human doings - and as such we need more than endless to-do lists and check boxes.
Which means the usual cookie-cutter type approach to building an online business just doesn't sit right with us. A business based on your own creativity (art, writing, design, photography, crafts and more) needs nurturing, not squeezing into a 'one-size fits all' box.
I get it. I'm an artist, author, coach and I have a long history in project management. I sell my work online, in galleries and at events. My business has been built part-time around my family - in fact my first book was written during my newborn son's naptimes.
I love to manage my time and boundaries well so that I have plenty of time left for the people and activities that I love. Working on construction and business change projects for over a decade gave me a thorough grounding in time and project management for sure.
So I bridge the creative and systematic worlds - which makes me a rebellious pragmatist I guess! I want to use these skills to help you achieve your creative and business dreams - so you can thrive creatively AND financially.
I'm passionate about the importance of creativity - I believe it's crucial to solving the major problems we face in our world today. Generating financial success is vital so that we can look after our families AND also contribute to our communities and the causes we care about.
When you build a successful business based on your creative skills, not only do you create your own fulfillment - you also shine a light on this possibility for others too. And that is incredibly precious.
"Joanne, you are the Queen of Business Clarity!!!"
It's not for you if ...
If you want to grow a thriving online business based on your creative skills - I'd really love to help you. With my family commitments I'm not currently taking on any 1:1 coaching clients, so joining the Collective is the best way to get my support. I'm pouring everything into this!
Ten years of project management, almost 10 years of executive coaching and a lifetime of creative struggles / joys / adventures - I'm distilling all of that value into this membership program.
It's not just my content though, I also have an amazing line-up of experts to teach several masterclasses - all designed to help you thrive financially and creatively.
You can absolutely do this! I believe in you.
Take my hand, let me show you how.
1. First and foremost, our video masterclass on creating your unique Success Blueprint. This is absolute gold!
If you've ever struggled with overwhelm, not knowing where to start or what to focus on - this is going to rock your world! As I mentioned, I'm a project manager by background so I LOVE to cut through the noise and get a good, clear plan together.
In this series of bite-sized videos I walk you through creating your very own Success Blueprint for your business. (When I coach clients through this process individually it is a $2000+ investment)
Say goodbye to overwhelm and hello to clarity, focus and being able to relax during your time off (radical, right?!)
2. Next up, I recommend you jump in to The Organized Creative masterclass.
In The Organized Creative masterclass you'll discover how to boost your productivity, improve your focus and increase your creative freedom.
There are a few simple routines that will help you to run your business effectively. You'll be amazed at how much easier these make things - plus they really reduce your stress levels!
Don't worry, I've got printables and checklists to help you do this quickly and easily.
Getting organized with the routine stuff frees you up to pour yourself into the creative work that truly lights you up <3
3. Each month we feature a new masterclass on a key topic to help you stay inspired, grow your business and conquer fears and doubts (yep, we all have them).
Examples of our upcoming masterclasses:
We also have live Creative Dates on zoom every month where we co-work on our creative projects. The calls are a mix of quiet solo working then group Q& A time. It's the perfect way to get your creative projects finished and out into the world.

The Creative Business Collective is a membership group specifically for creatives. Whether you're an artist, a writer, photographer, designer, illustrator, maker, or other creative - this is a space for you to thrive!
Yes, it's about building a business, but it's also about overcoming that fear of putting your creative work out in the world; it's that struggle between having confidence in the quality of your work while still accepting that you can improve.
Creativity is a lifelong calling, right? There's always more to learn, new ideas to try and comfort zones that can be stretched.
I want to support you in all of that, and I know that the special community we're creating in the Creative Business Collective will inspire and encourage you to show up and get your beautiful creative magic out in the world!
