I had, what I thought, was an abstract idea for a business, but was completely overwhelmed thinking about the details and figuring out where to begin. The more I dove in, the more overwhelmed I became. Having worked with Kind Aesthestic previously I knew Sara & Andrea offered the DELVE Toolkit and I was interested in learning more. I thought, even if I didn’t commit to the program, I was curious to hear what they had to say about my ideas and if DELVE would be a good fit so I started with their consultation phone call. As the conversation progressed I knew right away this dynamic would work and would be exactly what I’d need to hit the ground running. They take care and listen and understand my vision and unique story. Where Kind Aesthetic excels in digesting & understanding ideas and your bigger picture, they also understand the processes involved to achieve it. They helped me structure a working plan with attainable goals and action items that have already started the wheels in motion, becoming a small business owner and creative entrepreneur. This step by step guide was customized just for me as Clementine’s Daughter and gave me the confidence to go after it! I recommend this program to anyone who is thinking about taking that leap. Just have the consultation with these ladies. You will not look back once you do!

I’ve been working as a professional artist for five years. Recently I had a new idea for a small creative business and I knew realizing it would mean taking my work in a new direction. I felt confident about the creative part of my new project but less sure about entering the world of retail commerce and marketing. Sara and Andrea are smart and talented and had experience in branding, web design and photography—the areas I most wanted guidance on. They gave me great assignments and helpful feedback, and supported me as I honed my idea. Sara and Andrea offered an effective balance of practical guidance and deeper conceptual analysis that was just what I needed to help shape my business in a way that is authentic and compatible with my practice as an artist. The thinking I did with them about my new project carried over into my established art practice as well, and helped me refine my artist statement and website. As an artist I think the biggest challenge is learning how to communicate with the public about what you do, but Sara and Andrea are artists themselves so they have a unique perspective. Kind Aesthetic created a bridge between the studio and the challenge of representing myself to potential supporters of my work.

When there’s a strong story behind your work, it’s much easier for people to hold on to it, remember it, and want more of it. What is your unique story? Talking and writing about your business, creative practice, shop and/or product in an exciting and confident way is the best way to get people interested, sell more, and open doors to new opportunities.

It’s time to harness your website into a powerful tool. Especially if you are creating a product or creative service to sell, you want a place where people can go to find out more and be wowed. We can help you set up a beautiful online shop or portfolio site.

Is your idea of spreading the word about your upcoming craft show, event, sale or product launch calling your mom and your best friend and hoping for the best? It’s time to shout it all  from the rooftops because we promise it’s more fun, and easier to fit it into your schedule, than you think.

Do you have trouble writing about your products or the services you offer as a creative business? We’ll help you find your voice and effectively communicate product descriptions, promotional materials, blog entries, newsletters, marketing outreach, and customer service emails to your audience.

Daydreaming about starting a creative side business or moving forward with your studio practice? There are many ways to be more productive with the time you have. We’ll show you how.

Work with us to create a strategy to make progress on your work everyday to achieve big outcomes no matter how much time you have or how foggy those goals might currently be. We'll help you achieve clarity and focused direction.

Does your work look beautiful in your studio or workshop but lackluster in print and online? We can provide tips and training on how to create gorgeous imagery that you can make yourself. Believe it! We’ll show you how to get the best product photography and create a stunning visual presentation of your work.

Do you know that you need to build your community to get more opportunities, but don’t know where to look? Take the leap into new worlds with us where you’ll meet like-minded people and grow your practice, business and success.

Do you have trade show or craft show coming up and have no clue where to begin preparing? Or maybe your brick and mortar store isn’t looking as sharp as you’d like.
