WHAT is the creative boss scholarship?

The Creative Boss Scholarship is a free 3 months program that I am offering to women who are building their own business and would like to have help with it, but are not able to afford my Creative Boss Consulting services. 

The scholarship includes

  • A monthly 1 hour coaching call for the duration of the program (i.e. 3 calls in total)
  • Unlimited email support - you can ask me anything, anytime!
  • Lifetime access to my Creative Boss Facebook group - the place to meet other creative business owners and participate in free monthly live Q&A calls

The second Creative Boss Scholarship starts at the beginning of June and will run until the end of August


 
What I liked most about the Scholarship is that it focused me, and it helped me pin down my business goals. Additionally, it gave me the tools and the confidence I needed to pursue my dreams!

I found that setting achievable goals during our monthly calls was a great way to break down the tasks ahead of me, and it also kept me accountable.

WHy do i offer it?

I believe it’s now more important than ever that we stand together and support each other as women. We as female business owners are the living proof that they are wrong - they being everyone who humiliates women, talks them down or doubts them. 

Helping each other to grow our businesses is feminism at its core. This is why I want to offer my services to women who might not otherwise be able to afford them and help them start or grow their creative business.

I also aim to inspire a "paying-it-forward" spirit by asking every scholarship holder to use their talents to support the female community.


 
Although we’d only met a couple of times before beginning the scholarship, it felt immediately like I was working with an old friend! I will say I was quite nervous before the first call, but it didn’t last long once we started talking. I felt so comfortable asking all the questions in my mind, never feeling that a question was too small or silly to bring up.

Hanna Lisa’s depth of knowledge and experience, and your ability to easily explain a concept is immediately apparent and her enthusiasm and excitement is just infectious! All in all, it was an absolute joy working with her!
