Creative Business Mentoring

creative business mentor bristol

Small business owners, freelancers, bloggers, makers – after a year off on maternity leave I’m so excited to be taking on new clients for creative business mentoring.

Over the last few years, I’ve worked with some amazing women who run wonderful creative businesses and brilliant blogs. My role over that time was mainly to consult and assist with social media and digital marketing, however over and over again I found myself having conversations with clients about their businesses that went far beyond their marketing strategy.

Following your creative dreams, running your own business and working for yourself is undoubtedly incredibly rewarding but can be oh-so-lonely, confusing and down-right scary at times too. I believe we can all benefit from having someone in our corner, someone to keep us on track, someone other than our partners or friends to turn to for advice and support.

One-to-one Creative Business Mentoring

Our sessions will be tailored to you and your business needs but to give you an idea of what working together might entail here are a few things you can expect from me as a mentor…

– Help to turn those dreams and schemes into goals and intentions.
– Accountability, with regular check-ins and online support.
– Delving into and demystifying your digital marketing strategy.
– Content creation and content planning. From brainstorming with you on creative concepts to the nitty-gritty of scheduling.
– Systems and processes to make your workflow more manageable and tips for tackling that to-do list.
– Regular recommendations which are relevant to you and your business. From books and podcasts to interesting articles and any opportunities I come across.
– A personal cheerleader!

What my clients say…

“It’s so useful having someone professional to chat this through with and to keep me on track and accountable for my goals. It’s like having a work therapist,  she’s such a good listener and I always feel so inspired after our chats!”

Isabel Knowles: Ethical clothing and dressmaker.

“As a new blogger with little budget and even less of a clue about all things social, Charlie was a great asset to have in the early days to get me up and running; knowledgeable, organised, diligent and not afraid to challenge my old school-thinking!”
