business tools that actually work for creative entrepreneurs

Let’s Get Real, Boss –

Do You Run Your Business, or Does *IT* Run You?

Feel free to nod your head along if these sound familiar:

  • You feel like you’re working too hard for not enough reward.
  • You know you’re here to build something, but struggle to commit to a vision.
  • Speaking of vision, you feel your day-to-day tasks aren’t getting you down that path to success.
  • You consistently struggle with deciding on what the next most important thing is to do in your business.
  • You feel like you spend most of your time just reacting to things in your business, not proactively moving the needle towards your goals.
  • And… most of all… you can’t seem to find the time to work on your business.

Here’s the Truth:

You Need to Put On Your CEO Hat + Show Your Business Who’s Boss

Creatives who run businesses are special people. You’re passionate, talented, dedicated, and have big dreams for the impact you want to make.

You know how to do the “creative” part, but the “business owner” piece is often a struggle.

With CEO Day Kit, you’ll turn your creative energies into your business and set out a plan for building the business of your dreams.

“Thank you so much for this amazing package. [My CEO Day] has been MIND-BLOWING, to say the least.”

“CEO Day Kit is what made my business start working.”

CEO Day Kit has informed all of my decisions. Absolutely excellent.”

But Wait – What is a CEO DAY?

A CEO Day is a day you set aside at least once a year* to find your focus, set big goals, and map out your game plan for the year ahead.

It’s dedicated time to work on your business.

On this day, you give your vision the attention it deserves, and in just one day you’ll have a game plan for the next 12 months.

*You get extra CEO points if you hold mini-CEO Days once a month.

To Help You Make the Most of Your CEO Day, We’ve Created…

CEO DAY KIT

a business planning toolkit
for creative business owners

CEO Day Kit

is the structure + tools for conducting your own CEO Day with guidance to help you focus + move forward.

The Structure

STEP 1: MONEY MOJO

You’ll begin by examining your money attitudes and stories, and by setting a money goal. Because this is business – you’re here to make money with the impact you want to make!

STEP 2: CYCLES OF CREATION

Since entrepreneurship is all in the journey, you’ll redefine how you look at getting from point A to point B, and identify what season you’re in so you know what’s around the bend.

STEP 3: VALUES + INTENTIONS

Determine how to align the way you run your business with who you are and what you value, so the work you do always feels good. You’ll also discover how to stay motivated by using intentions to explore and grow as a business owner and super boss human.

STEP 4: CRAFTING YOUR DREAM JOB

You’d be surprised how revisiting your job title, roles, and duties can create big shifts for your business vision and daily actions, and in this step you’ll lay it all out, so you can identify your worth and see where you may need help.

STEP 5: BUSINESS MODEL

Get clear on what you offer and how you sell what you do, so that you can efficiently attract, engage, and sell what you offer to your dream customers.

STEP 6: KNOW YOUR NUMBERS

A boss has a clear picture on their income, expenses, and profit, and in this step you will lay it all out, get comfortable with the numbers that make your business run, and discover how to use those numbers to make informed decisions that drive your business forward.

STEP 7: REVENUE + MARKETING

Your money flow is directly tied to your marketing efforts. In this step, we combine the two to get a clear picture on the actions you need to take to create the business, offerings, and revenue you desire, month after month.

Each Step Includes

Instructional Video / Audio

Each step includes a brief instructional video to clarify why the philosophies and tactics are important for the success of your business and how to put them into action during your CEO Day. Plus you’ll get an intro and closing video to help you make the most of CEO Day for your business. Closed captions in English are available, as well as an audio-only version.

Guided Worksheet

Each step includes at least one worksheet (some include two!) to guide you through the step and to allow you to get your plans on paper. Use them in the moment to move forward and keep them to review later as proof of your growth!

“I feel so much clearer. I have my year mapped out and I know what I want to make! I’m going into month 9 of my yoga studio, so this was much needed.”

“I’ve started having CEO Days monthly and treating myself like the boss of my business (which I am)!”

CEO Day Kit has really helped me focus on the big picture; thinking of myself as a CEO has been huge for me.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Do My CEO Day ANytime?

Yes! We recommend you go through all 7 steps at least once a year, but these are tools we’ve come to rely on quarterly, monthly, or anytime our business needs a little more clarity.

Do I need to go through all the steps in order?

The sequence we present is the one we go through, but you’re the boss of your business, and you can do what you want, when you want. (But we really do recommend you go through each step in order to get the most out of your CEO day.)

I’m Just Getting Started;
I’ve been at it for a while:
Is this a good for for me?

Whether you’re side-hustling your baby business or have been a full-time CEO for years, the CEO Day Kit is for anyone who needs structure around mapping out their business plans on their terms.

This kit has seen just as much success with brand new businesses as it has with bosses generating over $1M in annual revenue.

CEO Day Kit works the same for a fresh start-up as it does for a mature business. We’ve used it for brand new businesses, and businesses that are 10 +years old, and everywhere in between.

How long does it take?

We recommend taking a full day for your annual CEO day… but sometimes we’ll give ourselves a long weekend retreat to really focus on the exercises we present here.

And don’t forget! You’ll be able to use these tools whenever you need, so a half-day every quarter and/or every month is a good idea for staying in touch with your big-picture plan.
