“A Cup of Clarity” Coaching with Ronnie

We all need some help now and then.

You’ve read the books, talked to your friends and family, and maybe asked a few questions on Facebook, and tried noodling it out yourself. But that stubborn question still trips you up…How do I get some traction in this business?
It’s high time to move on and get some answers.

Who is this for?

Well, you actually! I love helping artists who are in that “I’m just not sure if I’m on the right road/is this really what I want/am I any good/please help me figure this out” phase of their development. And frankly, this can happen at any point in your journey— or on any random Tuesday. I know because I have been there, asked the same questions, entertained the same doubts. And got past it.
Now it’s your turn to kick it to the curb.

That’s where I come in.

After many years as an artist, art director, licensing agent and creative coach, I’ve become pretty good at analyzing situations quickly, and can guide you how to solve them yourself. I have helped hundreds of artists move past that spot and thrive doing exactly what they should be doing.

Does that mean I have all the answers? Well, probably not ALL of them, but I definitely have learned a few things. Not that we expect every single thing you struggle with will be solved in 30 minutes

…but some of it will. At the end of our call, you will be able to drop your shoulders and exhale. You will see your path more clearly and feel a boost of confidence—because you know what to do next. 

So, here’s the deal:

You’ll start with a pre-call assignment from me to help you identify and organize what issue we want to move forward. The assignment will have 2 parts: 1) Journaling prompts to get you thinking and expressing yourself and 2) three questions designed to give you insight and pinpoint the real issue/challenge/problem you want to explore during our call.  Then you’ll have a thirty minute phone call with me where we drill down on what’s important and find real, actionable steps you can take. You will also get a recording of our call to listen to as many times as you like, so during our call you can concentrate on listening and talking instead of taking notes.

Sound like something you’d like to do? Cool, cool.

Now here’s where I could go into a salesy part here where I tell you that when you break the $55.00 down, it’s the equivalent of blah blah, or X number of Starbucks, or how many burgers….but you’re smart enough to know the value in this without me going there. (But of course, all those comparisons are true…).
And no pressure, but there will be a limited number of appointments available because it’s just me here on the other end of the phone with all my attention on you.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Click the button below to schedule your appointment and pay via the PayPal link.
  2. Look for an email from me with a) your assignment and b) the link to our Zoom online audio call.
  3. Work on your assignment (very important to get the full benefit from our call)
  4. Log in at the time of our call and we’ll start kicking some obstacle butt!

One-on-One Coaching with Ronnie

Maybe you feel like you want something more and you’d rather have a more face to face time with me. That’s cool, too. I’ve got you covered here.We start with a perfect one hour nugget so you can hit the ground running on a specific issue or we can dive into the Big Stuff like “is this even the right path for me?” We will get a lot done in that hour and I know I can save you quite a bit of time, brain space, and overwhelm.

  • You will complete a detailed questionnaire that will allow both of us to see where you are in your creative career, and where you want to go. The questions are designed to help you clarify your goals and objectives—both for your business and what you want to achieve by working with me.
  • I will review your answers and the visuals you send me before our session. These will include your website (if you have one) and any other portfolio materials you want me to see.
  • We will either Skype or talk on the phone for 1 hour and we will determine your best direction–then you will head off with concrete, actionable steps you can start on right away.
  • This is all included in the $175 payment (prepaid via Paypal).

What the Artists say...

“In just a short coaching session Ronnie zeroed in on my strongest artwork and explained which markets it would fit into, and how to research them.  She gave me concrete steps to take to make my work even more marketable and appealing to art directors. She definitely knows the inside scoop on the licensing business and, lucky for us, she’s willing to share what she’s learned.”

-Pat Achilles

“I have been in the industry for many years and I work as an independent artist without an agent.  The industry is a challenging one, so I thought about hiring a coach but it took me quite a bit of time before I decided to work with Ronnie. I worked with her on some challenges and she helped me figure out the best strategy for the situations I was dealing with.  She is very wise and understands the art licensing industry.   What I love the most about her is that she is funny, caring, yet very realistic about the industry. She tries to give you hope and inspiration while looking at the industry from a realistic point of view based on her own experience.  She is my “fairy licensing mother”. I highly recommend her!”

-Sue Zipkin

“I really appreciated you giving me a moment of your time to connect today. It’s within that space of time that you gave me understanding, encouragement and an “idea”! It’s individuals like you,who continue to inspire others to persevere just by saying “let’s talk”, truly understand the concept of ‘one hand to give, one hand to receive!”

-Pat Sutton

“Talking with Ronnie was both delightful and very helpful. Her years of experience and knowledge of the market are invaluable for someone starting out in this business. She not only gave me the push I needed to feel confident in sending my work to art directors but also went into in details by telling me which pieces to emphasize for what market. All and all a very positive experience worth every penny, I’ll come back again!”

-Sophie DuFresne

“Ronnie was wonderful to speak with-I could tell she really had a good sense of my work and was able to give real insight about my work specifically. Ronnie offered very focused, detailed advice that I am already putting into practice. I came away from the conversation with clear  steps to take and how to take them. It was a great investment for my business and I am looking forward to working with Ronnie again.”

-Annie Howe Papercuts

“She’s a mensch.”

-David Hillman
