You’re a talented creative, you run a business or side-hustle and you’re generally happy that you get to earn money from your talents & passion.

Got any questions? Check out the FAQs
who is this for?
The Bespoke Business Hub is for artists, designers, illustrators, photographers, artisan makers, crafters & creators. You may have an online business, have a shop, run a market stall, offer 1:1 services or any combination of these!
If you’re a writer or author working directly with clients, you may also find this program useful, as I will cover relevant topics such as client management, project management, money management & creative inspiration.
who is this not for?
This program is not suited for coaches and businesses who sell info or educational products & services, MLM or drop-ship.
You do need to have an active creative business, a past business you want to ignite or hobby that you are planning to make into a business.
This program is not suitable for you if you’re looking for artistic or creative teaching. It’s also not for you if you’re thinking about starting a creative hobby or outlet.
If you are searching for spiritual guidance or beginner’s confidence in your creative practice, this won’t be the program for you. Though I do highly recommend you read the book The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron.
This is also NOT a training course, teaching How Tos such as SEO, product creation, website building etc. Though I will give you resources and offer up my personal referral partners to help you.
how long do I have access for?
You will have lifetime access to the materials, the private Facebook Group and the live mentoring sessions.
Please note that lifetime access refers to the life of the program and not my or your life!
If I chose to close down the program, you will no longer have access. Though don’t worry I am not planning on doing this anytime soon and if I do, you will get plenty of notice.
When does the mentoring program start
Great news…it’s ever-green and you can join the program at any time. And you have lifetime access too!
how is the material delivered?
Once you’ve paid, I will send you a Welcome email with your login details. You’ll get instant access to the password protected pages, where all the videos, transcripts, PDF and resources are found.
You can log in at any time, and go through the content at your own pace and in any order. You can go back to the same topic as often as you want. This really is a choose your own adventure style of delivery.
You will also be added to the Private Facebook Group called The Bespoke Business Hub Members Only.
The Facebook group will be your daily hang out for asking questions, interacting with me and your fellow Hubsters and having access to special content, lives and bonus materials.
Every fortnight I’ll send you an invite to join me on a group mentoring session on Zoom. Bring your wins, challenges, and questions. I’ve been part of many Zoom networking, mentoring & mastermind sessions, and the group dynamic is priceless. We all learn from each other!
If you have signed up for the 1:1 mentoring, I’ll get in contact with you personally via email and send you my calendar link, for you to book a date and time to suit you best.
how are the group & 1:1 live mentoring sessions conducted?
We will be meeting on Zoom. You will get an invite for the Zoom session, with plenty of notice to add it to your diary. On the day, simply click on the Zoom link I send through, and you will be connected to the meeting.
Do I need special software to attend the sessions?
If you don’t already have Zoom downloaded, you will need to download it onto your desktop. It’s free and easy to use.

The rest of the program just needs your laptop or device to access the material on the password protected pages on this website, and a Facebook account to access the private group.
what's the difference between mentoring & coaching?
That’s an interesting question. Obviously there will be overlaps in what a mentor and a coach does, but ultimately it boils down to this: a mentor will have walked the path you are now taking. They have real life experience and will draw upon this when advising or consulting with you. They will often be industry experts with a separate business doing what they mentor.
For example, I am a creative business mentor because I also have a successful design business called Bespoke Backdrops & Branding, and have run creative businesses of all sorts since 1999.
A coach will use open-ended questions to elicit deeper thinking and self realisations when helping you in your business. Very often they may not have personal experience in your industry or business sector, but will have strategies and tools to guide you to find the answers.
