Costings Strategy Sessions

The Costings Strategy Session is a 1.5-Hour one-to-one coaching call for artist makers who want to get a handle on how much their business ‘should’ cost to run; how to work out their hourly rate and price their work ‘correctly’; AND how to pay themselves a salary!


I’m going to be honest here - the topic of ‘Money’ is often a dirty word for most artist makers and as a collective we are either embarrassed or down right terrified to discuss our money issues.

So I’ve designed this Costings Strategy Session as a way for ‘us’ (that's you and me) to start taking a ‘gentle’ look at your business ‘Costs’ and ‘Costings’ in a relaxed, no-pressure and non-judgemental setting.

In this 1.5-Hour session we will focus on the costs involved in YOUR artist maker business, so that we can work out THREE things: 

  • Your Maker’s Rate Per Hour
  • Your Yearly Salary
  • & Your Product Prices

As this is a one-to-one session, this is totally tailored to YOU and YOUR business - because we are not all the same and each business I mentor has a totally different set of personal and business circumstances which affects our business costs.

At the end of the session, you’ll walk away with a complete ‘action plan’ for your business costs and costings - aka YOUR Costings Strategy!

How cool is that!


Let's Get Started!

The Costings Strategy Session is a private one-to-one mentoring call - ie: its just me and you - you get my individual attention!

This strategy session is geared around the idea of ‘Costs’ and ‘Costings’ in your makers business. We will look specifically at…

  • How To Find Your ‘Correct’ Rate Per Hour
  • How To Price Your Products To Make Profit
  • How To Work Out Your Yearly Salary (& Suggestions On How To Start Paying Yourself This!)

To get the most out of your session, there’s a short questionnaire I will need you to fill out beforehand so that I have some basic details about your maker business before we begin. Don’t worry, it's not scary! That way we can create a more focused plan of action!
