Courses : The Maker's Business Toolkit

I’ve been teaching artists and makers how to make more money from their creative work for almost 10 years

There’s a lot to learn when you’re trying to build a business from the things you make. Let me help you to develop the entrepreneurial muscles you need to make your business successful and profitable.


The perfect companion to the Maker's Yearbook (or any other planner), this planning system is going to help you do more of what matters to you

Learn to set meaningful and motivating goals and build the time to work on them into your daily, weekly and monthly plans.

I truly love Nicola’s teaching style. She has an incredible gift. 

She really “gets” people, what is holding them back, and has a kind way of helping address what really is going on and guides you to the next step without being overwhelming.

Nicola’s advice is like an MBA at my fingertips. Apart from the sound business advice, her coaching is excellent. 

Sometimes I think she’s reading my mind! And then comes the pep talk.

Nicola is so knowledgeable, funny, and engaging. Every single topic she addresses provides so much value and is way beyond the time and money invested.

You can listen over and over and still learn something new.

Not only do I enjoy listening, but I feel like I’ve gained an amazing business mentor.
