Want to Jumpstart Your Art Business?
Nail your artist’s business plan in just 7 days (or less)!
So that you have a super clear path to follow, to build a profitable business from your passion.JUMP TO DETAILS ↓
A super short course, with fillable templates to make creating your plan a breeze!
Every day you work without a plan, you are effectively DRIVING IN THE DARK without any focus on a goal, direction, or way to measure your progress (which is super important for motivation).
The question is:
How can you get to where you want, If you have no plan mapping out how to get there?
The success of your art business (or the little enterprise you are about to start!) rests heavily on having a clear path for yourself that you can follow and check in with along the way.
THE BIG QUESTION YOU ARE LIKELY ASKING:
Is it actually possible to build a successful art business in this current climate?
(And if so, will having a plan actually help me to achieve this?)
I’VE BEEN AN ENTREPRENEUR FOR OVER 10 YEARS NOW - with both my own art and business coaching - and I’ve weathered plenty of storms I can promise you.
I BUILT MY ART BUSINESS FROM SCRATCH before Social Media was even a thing; including traveling the world reliant on (often pretty awful) internet connections and a dry cool place to work; not to mention learning new skills on the go.
In that time I’ve helped hundreds of business start-ups and creatives to expand their vision of what was possible for them, transition from jobs to a full or part-time business and step into their dream life and business.
I DISCOVERED THAT ONLY A FEW THINGS ACTUALLY MATTER in the bigger picture.
Want to know the 3 key things every artist needs to profit from their passion?
(Trust me they apply to ALL artists, creatives and entrepreneurs)
✔ A CRYSTAL CLEAR VISION
✔ A STEP-BY-STEP PLAN TO GET THERE
✔ THE DETERMINATION & DRIVE TO DO IT!
THE BIGGEST THING I'VE LEARNT OVER MY 10+ YEARS IN BUSINESS IS THIS:
The success of your art business is directly linked to whether you have invested the time to complete an artist's business plan.
You’ve got no idea what to write in a business plan
Overwhelm sets in.
You don’t have time right now - You'll 'do it later'
Facing finances and all the 'money stuff' is intimidating
And then there's creating spreadsheets...
You know that you really do need a plan to follow...
You just REALLY need some help!
THE GOOD NEWS?
I have a simple step-by-step solution that will eliminate the guessing, and stressing and make it super simple for you!
If you’re still here then chances are this is exactly what you need right now...
By following my step-by-step solution you will be able to:
- Design an art business that fits your lifestyle, so you don’t have to compromise any area of your life.
- Gain 100% clarity around what you do (or don’t) want to be selling and how to go about doing it.
- Get crystal clear on your chosen audience and how to reach them, so you can start building that all-important relationship over time.
- Concentrate on the right marketing & sales strategies for you and your audience, to avoid wasting precious time and money.
- Have created a simple blueprint for yourself to follow every day!
Yes, it's true!
These and much more are completely within your reach, should you choose to take this path.
(And I really hope you do...)
...However, they do also rely on you TAKING ACTION TODAY.
I am super excited to reveal the key to unlocking your dream of making a living from your art & creativity.

“I recently completed Sophie Mahirs’ Build Your Artist Business Plan on-line course. Why I found this course valuable is because it made me think of why I am an artist and what I want to achieve. Following all the Modules I was able to articulate the blueprint or road map for me to follow for a successful Arts Business. Sophie takes us step-by-step through the modules which are easy to follow and what I realised, which gave me confidence is: ‘It is do-able’. I had this epiphany after doing the finance sections. Sophie is thorough and very supportive all the way. I really recommend this course if you are seriously wanting to set your business plan in motion.”
“This course Build Your Artist’s Business Plan is well constructed, practical and eminently doable - and it delivers! I have now a comprehensive business plan, which I can reference regularly and happily finesse. Having regular group video linkups with Sophie while the course runs, provides valuable backup and motivation.
Completing this has been a very worthwhile experience and I'm excited to action all I have learnt to develop my art business.”
"The Build Your Artist Business Plan Course is a great and essential foundation for a successful art business. It was fun to dive deeper into my ideal customer and gain a clear view of where I am headed and what I am doing and when with my art practice. It helped me to understand my art from a different perspective and to be able to use that insight in my marketing. You still have to be the one to get in action this plan, but that's why it's exciting, because it's your plan, to suit you and your art. Wish I'd done it sooner!"
A lot of hard work, energy and love has gone into the putting together of this course and our intention is that anyone purchasing it does so with the positive intention of completing the course and building a successful art business.

WHY COMPLETE YOUR ARTIST'S BUSINESS PLAN TODAY?
"The best time to plan is now!"
I'M SURE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE NOTHING BETTER THAN TO KNOW that you had a solid, stable art business already set up and working for you. So if you are feeling a bit wobbly or scared about the future, you are not alone - I get you completely.
I truly believe that now is always the very best and most important time to focus on your underlying goals and plan for your art business.
WE'VE SEEN HOW FAST THINGS CAN SHIFT in the last few years, and as artists, we must remain flexible, open to change and ready to find creative solutions that work both for us, and also our customers.
I’d hate for you to look back at this time in 6-12 months' time without those sales, wishing you’d simply taken action.
I WANT YOU TO BUILD A SUCCESSFUL PLAN, so that you can step forwards with total confidence that you've GOT THIS and be grateful you made this decision today.
