WHAT IF YOU COULD DITCH DOING #ALLTHETHINGS FOR #ALLTHEPEOPLE FOR #NOTENOUGHMONEY AND FINALLY BUILD A BUSINESS YOU LOVE?
Not like eating salads and working out kind of healthy. I mean a business that’s built on a sustainable and life-giving foundation, a business that you ACTUALLY love and feel good about, every day.
Imagine a life where your business felt truly healthy and really right from the inside out.
Your business may seem successful on the outside, but you’re not sure it grew in the right direction, and you have NO idea how to change it.
HOW do people book ideal clients and make real money doing what they actually love, you wonder?! No really….HOW?!
I’m gonna go ahead and guess…
right now, you might be:
Filling your calendar, but not with the work you really want to do
Booking clients and making money, but afraid to actually pay yourself (maybe you never have? Yikes!)
Getting inquiries that just aren’t quite what you’d hoped for
Feeling like there’s nothing setting you apart from everyone else in your market
You’re probably wondering,
“Whyyy does business have to be this hard?” UGH.
Aka...your business might look good on paper, but it doesn’t feel right on the inside.
IT DOESN’T (AND SHOULDN’T!)
HAVE TO BE THIS HARD.
I’m here to prove it to you.
(and walk with you through it every step of the way)
OH FRIEND. I FEEL YOU.
TAKE IT FROM ME,
A 4-month, small-group coaching program for women in business who are ready to build (or rebuild) a STRONG business foundation that’s sustainable, purpose-filled, and leaves you feeling energized--not totally and completely exhausted.
(Plus, extra support and encouragement from other female powerhouses like you!)
I spent my first 10 years as a photographer overworking, overspending and learning a LOT about business the hard way. I had no clue how to properly manage my finances, speak to my ideal clients or really anything in my business for that matter.
I made a lot of mistakes in those first 10 years (like, a lot of mistakes), but if anything, all those hard lessons ultimately led me to pursuing the RIGHT business for me!
And now, I help women like you build the right business now, so you can live a healthy business always.
Think of me as your business strategist & BFF all in one ;) Some even call me their “business therapist.”
I'm in it for you, friend!

Hi! I'm Val
Inside the Thriving Creative Foundations, I’ll teach you how to build the foundation of your right business now,
so you can live a healthy business always.
Before coaching with Val, I didn't know how to scale my business, or even where to start. My brain was always on to the next great idea. Val was able to help me slow down, stop idea overload, and taught me the steps needed to properly manage my business, both financially and creatively. I feel like she took a true interest in my life and business.
Stacy, Maker + Shop Owner
Val has been SO fabulous to work with. She's helped make my financial goals a much clearer picture (and I really hate excel), along with making sure I'm charging what I'm worth. She's also been like a therapist for me during our time together. She's helped me work through ALL the situations in the best way possible.
Bri, Graphic + Web Designer
I'm not sure I can adequately summarize the impact of Val's expertise on my business. She helped me implement a strategy that would allow me to work smarter, not harder and helped focus my business in a way that supports my LIFE goals.

a little FAQ #realtalk because a good coach shoots ya straight ;)
The reality is no matter where you are in business, whether your business is just an idea or you’re flooded with clients and trying to organize the chaos….everyone is ready for coaching because no one has it all figured out and everyone can always get better. You (and I!) can always get better. My job is to help every one of my clients clarify the areas they need to grow in order to achieve a healthy business while maintaining a balanced and fulfilling life. In my personal experience, I have never regretted an investment I made in coaching, even when the investment was scary.
But honestly? You’re ready when you’re willing to actually do the work. Any type of coaching is fully dependent on your commitment to actually follow through and implement what you learn.
I hear you, it’s totally natural to feel like you need to clean up your business before you go to a coach to help grow your business. But my job as a coach is actually to help you clean up your business as fast as possible and in the right way so that you have a healthy foundation on which your business can grow and thrive.
You don’t need to get your ducks in a row before coaching because I’m going to help you do that faster than if you had gone it alone.
Group coaching is for you if...
-You feel like you need to focus on growing specifically in the following areas: target market, finance management, offerings and your why
-You want to build relationships and community with other like-minded entrepreneurs
-You can’t quite afford 1:1 coaching yet
1:1 Coaching is for you if...
-You need more in-depth focus or have a specific project or business need
-You need more individualized attention and full access to me throughout our time together
-You need the flexibility to customize meeting times and pivot our coaching focus to best suit your goals and needs along the way
If you’re still unsure, no worries! Let me know and we can jump on a quick call to chat through the options!
The Thriving Creative is for the female entrepreneur who cares deeply about her work and is ready to implement intentional, healthy business practices to get the “business side of things” under control.
She’s in it for the long haul and highly values providing an excellent experience for her clients or customers.
She understands that in order to have a sustainable business, she needs to build a strong foundation. She's willing to do the deep, behind-the-scenes, not-so-sexy work to build (or rebuild!) a healthy business from the ground up.
I’m looking for women who value quality over quantity and genuinely want to find and implement their version of balance.
You’re not looking for a get-rich-quick solution, you’re in it for the long haul because you’re passionate about what you do and serving others well.
It’s also very important that you’re in it for the community and believe in empowering and lifting other women up.
Humility, willingness to learn, trust the process and a resolve to DO THE WORK are essential.
If you are a true business partnership where you are together running one business, you can apply together and everything you receive will be shared (ie, your 1:1 sessions will actually be 2:1).
During the group coaching video sessions, I will present the educational content first and then we will have helpful discussion and troubleshoot together as needed.
My coaching style is much more interactive as opposed to lecture, so that we make sure the concepts make sense and can be applied to your unique situation.
Office hours will be a time when you can ask questions and get feedback over the content and homework. We will also do hot seats where we will spend a set amount of time focusing on one person and their specific needs as a group.
We will kick off our 4 months together with our first group coaching call July 6th, 2021 and continue through the month of October.
Initial 1:1 sessions will be scheduled throughout July and August depending on availability.
All sessions will be held over video on Tuesdays at 2:00pm CST via Zoom and will be recorded and made available within 24 hours.
All group coaching sessions and office hours will be recorded, so if you have to miss one, you’ll be able to catch the recording and ask for any clarification needed in the Facebook group!
Yes! You can make 4 monthly payments of $600 if you choose not to pay in full up front.
The first month’s payment of $600 and the signed contract books your spot.
Val helps guide me and my business in the direction that is right FOR ME and what I need. No outside motive or influence, you know that she is in it for you. She shows up for you, and you only. The trust I have built with her is incredibly valuable to me.
Ashley, Luxury Wedding Planner
Before you invest in anything else for your business, STOP, and connect with Val. Seriously!! I was hesitant to take the plunge because of the financial commitment, but I wish I would have done it WAY sooner than I did.
