You’re here to
build a business
+ life you love.

As a creative entrepreneur or business owner, you’ve made the bold choice to strike out on your own, do something uniquely you, and aim to build the kind of work and life that you are in control of.

No matter what you sell, creative business owners like you share a dream that often looks like this:

  • You want to do the work you want, when you want, and with or for the people you want.
  • And you want to feel guiltless about that discernment in how you spend your time and energy.
  • You want your business to grow and thrive, even while you position yourself to do just the work you most want to do.
  • You want that business to afford you freedom to live your life.
  • And you want to be paid well to do the work you’ve chosen to do.

But most of all, you want to feel confident, in control, and clear in your decisions and in your path.

Well boss, that is all possible, if you practice the right mindset, create the right boundaries, and navigate the careful juggle of taking care of yourself and taking care of business.

Hello, I’m Emily.

… and I know a thing or two about navigating building a life as a creative business owner. I have been a business owner for over 15 years, and have spent the last 10 years guiding creatives down the path of entrepreneurship.

I started the Being Boss podcast in 2015 to share my journey, insights, and inspiration with other creatives, which has received over 11 million downloads. In 2018, I co-authored the book Being Boss: Take Control of Your Work and Live Life on Your Own Terms, published by Running Press.

Today I continue my work with creative entrepreneurs here at Being Boss, as well as run Almanac Supply Co., an online and brick-and-mortar retail store. I love business. But I also love my life, and I do all of this while still making time to be with my family, hike, and enjoy my favorite state of being: front porch sitting.

I want to help you find your version of success, too.
Which is why I created…

BOSS-OWNED BUSINESS

A Group Coaching Program
For Entrepreneurs

Boss-Owned Business is a 6-week group coaching program to help you shape your path from where you are to your version of success as an entrepreneur and creative business owner.

This program is crafted to focus on *you* and your role as a business owner, making sure that you are showing up to take care of yourself and your business in a way that always feels aligned and fulfilling.

Together, we’ll work to build a healthy relationship between yourself and your business, and define that relationship in a Business Guidebook, a living document that will act as an ongoing reminder of what you and your business get from each other.

Because you, boss, are the most important resource in your business. And your business should work for you.

In this coaching program, you’ll learn…

Week 1: Mindset

You’ll explore your own personal values, learn how to use them to shape your decisions, and discover important mindsets for creating a firm foundation for successful business ownership.

Week 2: Boundaries

By defining key boundaries important for your work as a business owner, you’ll create a framework for showing up to do your best work, unapologetically, and crafted just for you.

Week 3: Habits + Routines

Make sure *all* parts of your business are running like clockwork, even the tasks that run behind-the-scenes, like bookkeeping or employee reviews. You’ll identify and map them out.

Week 4: Community

Get clear on where you need support and who you need in your corner, then make and nurture connections as a creative and a business owner, building a personal support system.

Week 5: Work

Building a strong business requires digging into the basics of your business. You’ll clearly define who your business is here to serve and how you do it.

Week 6: Life

You’ll lay out the life you want to create and define what success means to you because being boss means running a business that supports your vision.

You’ll learn this through…

Program Feedback

“From the very first call and the very first page of the workbook, I felt my spirit lift. It’s not easy being a boss and it can feel at times lonely and messy.

Each week, the questions and topics have stayed with me, challenged and inspired me throughout the week, until I’m ready for more. It’s a perfect pace, and a breath of fresh air in the world of business coaching.”

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I sign up?

The cart for this program will open on August 8, 2022 and will close on August 26, 2022 at 5pm ET.

When are the coaching calls?

The 6 weekly group coaching calls are held on Tuesdays from 12-1:30pm ET with the first call on Tuesday, September 6 and the final call on Tuesday, October 11.

What if I have to miss a call?

Each call will be recorded and a replay will be available using the same event link shortly after the call has concluded.

What is the style of the coaching calls?

Emily starts each call with the opportunity to reflect on the work you’ve already done that week. Next, she facilitates a discussion to expand upon the pre-work and topic of the current module. There will be time for a live Q&A and coaching hot seats during each call.

How much time will I need to commit to the program?

Each coaching call is 90-minutes long. The additional pre-work exercises and guidebook prompts can be completed in approximately 1-2 hours each week.

What support will I receive in addition to the calls?

You will have access to a private community group where you can interact with other members, ask questions, and answer additional prompts for each module. The workbook will provide journaling prompts and exercises. You will also receive access to additional resources to support the material if you want to explore further with podcast episodes, articles, and additional worksheets.

What is the difference between the workbook and the guidebook?

The workbook is physical and provides space for you to work through the journal prompts and exercises, take notes from the coaching call, and workshop your guidebook prompts. The guidebook is a digital file that you will customize to your business and will define your ideal relationship with your business. It can be updated as your business grows and changes.

How do I know this is the right program for me?

This program is not limited to those who have been in business for a certain number of year or for certain types of businesses. It is designed to tackle your relationship with your business. If you struggle with integrating your life and work in a way that feels good, if you are frustrated when you show up to do the work, or if your business isn’t supporting your visions of success, this program will help you work through these areas.

How is this different from CEO Day Kit?

While there is a little bit of overlap in everything we do when it comes to foundations, CEO Day Kit is a toolkit that you use at regular intervals as you make plans for your business, evaluate your revenue streams, and review your marketing. This program is defining the relationship with your business and helping you show up in the way you most want to.

What payment options are available?

We offer two payment options. One full payment of $800 or two payments of $400 with the 2nd payment auto-debited 3 weeks after the initial payment.
