start up course creative


Running a business is an experience of a lifetime. It’s a creative experience. It’s an intellectual experience. It’s an exhilarating endurance experience. If you are thinking of turning your passion into your life’s work then this start-up course is for you.

Who is this course for?

The Start-up Course for Creatives is for you if…

- You’re practising in the creative arts
- You’re wondering how you can earn a living from your talents
- You have a creative business idea you’re itching to turn into reality
- You’re in full-time work and have ambitions to work for yourself
- You’re based in Gloucestershire.

What will I do during the course?

Day 1 – Saturday 16th March

Create your Brand Story – putting the essence of who you are (and what you do) into words that form the heart and soul of your brand, its content and marketing messages.

Day 2 – Saturday 23rd March

Business Model You – reinvent yourself and your career using a visual one-page tool to explore new ways your skills can be adapted to the changing needs of the marketplace to reveal new, more satisfying, career and life possibilities.

Day 3 – Saturday 30th March

Action is the foundational key to all success – develop an effective action plan to take your ideas to the next level. You’ll also get to hear some hints and tips from fellow creatives who’ve started up themselves.

You’ll have the opportunity to meet and work with like-minded creative entrepreneurs, and by the end of the course, you’ll have developed clear next steps for taking your ideas forward and making it happen!

Who’s delivering this course?

This Start-up Course for Creatives is run by Julie Ellison MBA, Director of Make It Studios – Stroud’s newest shared workspace. You’ll also benefit from a range of guest speakers from the creative industries.
