“Structure and accountability”
My time with Nina was invaluable. She helped sharpen my focus and get things done. She helped me prioritize and structured our sessions so that I knew exactly what to do during the week. She gave me exactly what I was ready for and knew when to stop to avoid overwhelm. My business is much better for her help.

“My mindset is so much stronger”
I was just starting my business, and now I feel like the ball is actually rolling forward and I have a clear path with what I need to do to share my products and reach more people. Your course helped me set goals and really strategize what needs to happen. I would not have known where to start without it. Between your materials and my notes from our calls, I know exactly what to do. I feel much more confident, my mindset is so much stronger.

Clarity and cool marketing ideas in just one session
“Before our conversation I had too many creative ideas, and was just chasing glitter. Nina brought out of me what gives me the most joy: acting. She gave me marketing tools to present myself better, and a great new idea to monetise my skills, which I hadn’t even thought of.”
“I feel confident and no longer lost”
“I have really enjoyed our weekly calls over the 3 months, and I learned and developed loads. Sometimes it’s not the weight on the bar that matters, it’s the feel, and the weight will come in time. I feel like that about my business, I feel better and confident and I don’t feel lost anymore. With this feeling, clients will come.

“Clarity around my offers”
“I was wondering how to combine all my ideas, and felt overwhelmed about how to create a clear message on social media of what my business actually is, because I have a few different elements in my offerings. Nina gave me smart tools to try and advice about which steps to take next. She was supportive, clear and inspiring. She quickly came up with some unique ideas, which I would never have thought of myself and I really loved. She also gave helpful feedback about my website. I enjoyed a relaxed, chatty and fun Power Hour with Nina. I will be back!”

“More aware of what I want to do”
“It is great to talk things through – I guess in the process of doing that I’ve become more aware of firstly what I want to do, and secondly – how I want to get there, and not to be too afraid of doing so. All these things were somewhere there already, but it’s good to get them fully ‘crystallised’ and also to feel more inspired. I’ve enjoyed that a lot! “

“A marketing plan to set us up for success”
“As creative small business owners ourselves, Nina’s 7-week marketing course was a perfect fit for us. Running a small business can be a chore at times and having to balance marketing on top of it all is overwhelming. In only 7 weeks, we were able to gain confidence and learn the available options for marketing our business. We left the course with a marketing plan to set us up for success.”

“A much clearer message”
Before working with Nina I was feeling completely daunted by the whole social media and marketing my business thing. After following Nina’s course I actually feel excited about the prospect of marketing my business, I have a much clearer idea of the message I want to get across, and I am brimming with fresh ideas. Already I have received several positive comments from people in my network who have noticed the difference in my social media interactions.
I had so many ‘Eureka’ moments during the 6 weeks, too many to mention them all, but I think my favourite was that marketing your business shouldn’t feel like a grind.

“Inspired by possibilities”
The title ‘ From overwhelmed to on the ball’ and the fact that the course was for creative businesses were the main reasons for signing up for the program. So many working pieces of marketing can be overwhelming to manage and difficult to form a clear direction. The 7-week program has motivated me to improve our marketing efforts greatly. I’m inspired by the possibilities of what our new website can achieve for us.
We have not marketed our business much to date and I look forward to what the future holds with the new knowledge and clarity I have gained from the course.

“Goals, strategies and clear actions”
“Before working with you I felt overwhelmed. I had a dream, but didn’t know how to turn it into reality. I missed a high-level strategy to guide my actions, which in turn made my endeavours lack focus. Now I feel I’m more in control. I loved the way you turned my long-winded email into a to the point spreadsheet with goals, strategies and actions to be undertaken within a clear time-frame. It now looks like I can actually make it! Each step is small enough to be within my reach and concrete enough so that I know exactly what to do.”
“Your experience in the creative industry is extremely valuable to me: marketing for artists is so different than the marketing you need for other services or products. I also love your hands-on attitude and how you make things simple without losing depth.”
