Whether you're working for peanuts or you pay yourself a comfortable wage, your business can still feel like it's on life support. It doesn't matter how much money your business is bringing in, if you're not enjoying your profit, things will always feel tight.
Creatives can have it especially hard. We're known for being generous, over-giving, and willing to share our talents "for exposure" or to serve a greater good. Sometimes it's hard to admit that our "business" feels more like an expensive hobby. Even if you're making good money, you feel like you're on a hamster wheel trying to keep the business above water.
"Lisa can help you find the right fit for you, in terms of moving forward in your business. When I started working with her, I was about to just give up and move to Southeast Asia, and I thought that this whole business thing was just bullshit, and I just needed to stop.
"She was able to help me get my priorities in line and start being a CEO and not just a worker. In the course of the time that we've worked together, I have more than doubled my business. I made more in February than I did in all of 2015. And she has given me so much motivation and support, and I always feel like my work with her helps me be so much more effective, and better at being the leader, the coach, and the therapist that I want to be."
- Dr. Liz Powell
Maybe you want to free yourself up from the day-to-day work inside the business. Maybe you want to travel more, or spend time with family and friends. Maybe you just want more freedom or to make a bigger impact. If you're glued to the inner workings of the business, you'll have a hard time growing anything beyond yourself.
And that BIG VISION you have will keep sitting there on a shelf, being ignored until "someday" when you've "made it".
I have a better idea...
CREATIVE FREEDOM LIVE is an intimate, full-immersion learning and retreat event for creative entrepreneurs who want to translate their big vision into real results for their business.
It's where you'll discover how to make a meaningful income doing what you love - and how to grow it in a way that works for your unique situation.
You'll define the future of your business, learn what it really takes to end the hustle, make six figures (or more) on a consistent basis doing what you love - and finally have clarity on how you can step into the spotlight in your creative business and reach more raving fans for your Great Work.
But we don't stop there! I'm building in two post-event wrap-up sessions to help you implement AND stick with the new tools and strategies you'll be learning at the retreat.
It's time to create or re-envision the business that’s right for you. I'm here to guide you.
Are you ready to be a part of it?

CREATIVE FREEDOM LIVE is for anyone who considers themselves a creative entrepreneur that’s on the growth path. If you’re just starting out and want to lay a rock-solid foundation, or you’ve been at this a while and just need some strategic tweaks to improve everything, if you want profitable, sustainable success for the long-haul, this is your jam!
"Lisa is one of those people you just love from the first minute you talk to her. She reaches to your level, where ever that may be, and she knows just the right questions to ask to help you become THE BEST at whatever it is YOU want to achieve.
"She challenges you without being extreme or unrealistic; but, most of all, she knows your strengths and your potential and she genuinely knows how to bring that out in you -- it's actually pretty amazing how she does that!
"I've coached one-on-one with Lisa, as well as having hired her to do some training for my team and I can tell you that we all give her glowing reviews!
"It's so nice to work with someone who has been where you are and has proven themselves!"

“Lisa’s strength lies in spontaneously and accurately seeing a project (whether hers or someone else’s) from a bigger picture view and then focusing like a laser beam on exactly what and how to improve or advance that project.“The first time I spoke with Lisa regarding a project I was working on, I was struck by her instant understanding of what I needed and her intuitive sense of which direction I should move in. “In short, Lisa is a brainstorming genius and brings a sharp, creative and spontaneous element to whomever she’s coaching. I highly recommend you work with Lisa if you’ve hit a wall and need to move your ideas forward in new and creative ways.”– Julie Anne Jones|

If you’ve got a vision so big it scares you a little (or a lot!), and you want to turn it into something meaningful in the world (meaningful money and impact), and you know you can’t do it alone, this event is for you.
Founder of Ark Entertainment Media, I've spent the last 20+ years helping best-selling authors, actors, musicians, sales pros, and other creatives make good money doing what they love, and have the time to enjoy their life in the process. It's not uncommon for my clients to double their income or add a six-figure revenue stream in as little as 90 days. My year-long clients have been known to double or triple those results!
I believe that the best way to be truly successful in life and business is to be yourself – warts, sparkles, and all – so you can own your dreams without selling your soul.
And yeah. I've had my share of down times, too. I've faced homelessness, single parenthood, and bankruptcy. I've come through those hard lessons and still manage to shine my light into the world. You don't have to be perfect, you just have to be willing to do the work.
CREATIVE FREEDOM LIVE will show you how to build your business around your strengths, clear your roadblocks, and make you a better person in the process.
One of the biggest advantages to a LIVE, in-person event is the attendees. The right mix of creative energies is a powder keg of awesomeness just waiting to explode. I know. That sounds a little cheesy, but it's true. You have a unique set of gifts that the world needs. Step into a room with a dozen or so other people like that, and some pretty amazing ideas and connections are born.
Because it's a fairly intimate group, you'll get plenty of attention, and build REAL connections with the other attendees. Connections that can propel your business (and your life) forward faster.
“Creative Freedom Live was nothing like I ever expected. I've been to seminars and retreats of all kinds, only to be bored or disappointed. Lisa took the time and energy to work with each of us to make sure we understood what she was teaching us."I read Lisa's book and have gone back to it on occasion, but after attending CFL 2018, I now know what creative freedom is all about. For those who did attend, I hope you come back next year. For those considering attending, try it next year. You won't be sorry."Thank you for doing what you do, Lisa. You are passing along your expertise and making lives better. I look forward to working with you in 2019."– Mitch Karas, Owner |
Each day you'll explore a different aspect of building your Noble Empire in a way that allows you to make good money doing what you love without having to sell your soul to do it.
To be frank, creatives aren't like other business owners. You are the most important product your company has to offer. I've seen many creatives come to the table with years of baggage and "shoulds" that prevent them from really owning the truth of what they really want - either because they don't think it's possible, or because others they trust told them they're crazy for even trying.
Before you can grow, you've got to clear the weeds.
Day One will help you assess where you're at, and hone in on how to align your business goals with your personal definition of success. Because, let's face it, your definition is the only one that matters!
Day one is about the "who" and the "why" of the work you do. We'll need that for...
It's one thing to say you want something, it's another to actually take responsibility and GO for it. That takes courage, confidence, and commitment to step out and share your Great Work with your right people, your Raving Fans, as I like to call them. This is where we get clear on who those people are, what you're really offering them through your Great Work, and why they choose you over the competition. Then, we'll work together to develop a growth strategy that's tailored to your Creative Entrepreneur Type and your unique business and life situation.
A plan is only helpful if you can act on it.
Day Two will give you the clarity you need to start taking actions - even before the retreat ends - to start finding more Raving Fans for your Great Work and see positive momentum in your business.
If Day one is about the "who" and the "why", then Day Two is about the "what and the how", which we'll need for...
Remember what I said earlier about the explosion of awesomeness that can happen when you put a bunch of creatives in a room? Well, here is where we put that power to work for YOU and YOUR business. You'll have dedicated time to build and share your business model with the group. Then, we'll actively brainstorm ways to improve it, or connect you with people we know that can steer you to your success destination even faster. This is where the retreat gets collaborative and FUN!
Day Three is the ribbon that ties it all together - with a solid implementation plan that you can put to work before you even leave the event! You'll have your next 12 months of promotions, marketing, and more all laid out and ready to plug into your business when you get back home.
I know that "life happens" when you re-enter the workaday world, so to help you stay accountable to the plans you've made, there are two (2) Post-event Follow-Through calls where we come together as a group to celebrate our wins, get support where we're stuck, and keep the fire burning on our dreams.
"I love Lisa's energy and business tactics. She is a no-nonsense professional that goes straight for the gold every time. She is a great inspiration with all of her wonderful achievements and definitely someone I'm glad I have on speed dial. Lisa is highly recommended!"- Will Bearyman|

“Here’s what I want to say about Lisa: She’s awesome.|
“She has a tremendous heart and sense of caring, that comes out in wanting to roll up her sleeves and get things done. She also has a sophisticated, fun, open-hearted sense of marketing, with a lot of experience behind her.“She gets the vision. She gets strategy. She gets the caring and love in taking care of the itty-bitty details…you can trust her…to care for your heart and your business.”– Mark Silver, M. Div.
CEO, Heart of Business, Inc.
You'll have plenty of time each morning for sacred practice, exercise, or whatever self-care serves you. The event begins Thursday morning and ends Saturday evening. Our days will begin at 9:00am sharp and usually end by 6:30pm (or a smidge earlier). That way, if you live locally, you won't have to fight the commuter traffic and can still enjoy some downtime in the evenings. If you're from out of town, you'll have plenty of time to explore Music City in the evenings without having to be up at the crack of dawn to be ready for our first session. Lunch and dinner times will vary each day, depending on the flow of the group. I don't want you starving, and I don't want to break momentum just because "it's lunch time." Lunch breaks are roughly 2 hours, to give you plenty of time to digest - both your food and the morning lessons!
I have two guarantees:
