How it Works / The 5-Step Process
Step One: The Foundations
This process starts with a custom intake FOUNDATIONS Document. This document is constantly being modified to meet artists’ needs by asking many questions and uncovering elements that are in your blind spots.
It is designed to get you organized and thinking about exactly what your top three and second three goals are for the next full year (and sometimes longer) of your career.
Step Two: The Session
After you deliver the FOUNDATIONS Document the team spends time with it and then schedules a full session with you via Skype or telephone to dive in. Here, we roll up our collective sleeves with you and your entire team (if you have one) to dive deeper into each area and create priorities.
Step Three: The Creation
After the strategy session, we take approx. 2 weeks to create your Artist Development Plan. Each Artist Development Plan includes the exact areas where you have asked us to focus on, based on your goals. Plus, you get Action Sheets which will help you assess, comprehend and fix any and all areas that need attention. You also get a CUSTOM TIMELINE, starting with the day of delivery that outlines what to do and in what order, so you can get right to it!
Step Four: The Delivery
Once the plan is delivered and you’ve had time to let it sink in, we schedule a follow-up session to go over it together. Here we will answer any questions that have come up.
Also, at this time, we adjust anything necessary in your TIMELINE.
Step Five: Go Forth And Rule
Do we really need to explain this?
Actually, yes we do – the #1 Q we get asked is – Do you do the plan FOR me?
We know, a 100-page plan will create work for you – here’s the TRUTH: succeeding in this business is a lot of work (it’s a fact.) If you expect this all to be done for you, you have chosen the wrong business.
However, don’t fear! Each Artist Development Plan will recommend companies that can help you implement all of the parts, so you don’t have to do it all alone. We will make suggestions for outsourcing, finding interns, and affordable virtual assistants (VAs), and more.
