What kind of project will I need for this class? This is why each student receives a 60-min private coaching session before starting week 1 with the rest of the class. Together, you'll pick a project that is manageable for the next 6 weeks. Here's a list of some good projects we've seen:
- finish a huge mural & reveal it with a champagne party with close friends
- create & test a system/process to repeatedly create all the things forever and ever, amen
- put together that one workshop idea and get it booked
- explore the ins & outs of live video on social media
- promote your next big show with all the publicity you can learn & muster
- dream up and finally get rolling with your fantasy day-job
- record and release a small album of demos
How many hours each week will this class take? This will depend upon your project and your daily responsibilities. Time management is part of the skills you'll be acquiring and sharpening in this course. It's also why we start with the dream & scheme modules, to align those dreams with your realistic constraints.
What kind of technology does this class require? You'll need a laptop or desktop with the free Zoom app available at http://zoom.us/download, a pair of headphones or earbuds, and a free Slack account.
Why a Slack group instead of a Facebook group? Ahh... For a lot of us creatives, Facebook is either 1) a huge distraction from getting real work done or 2) a triggering environment for comparison and overwhelm. We use Slack because it's easy to turn off/on notifications, plus it's easily accessible from either your browser, desktop app, or mobile app. This is the tool we use for unlimited coaching with Emily Ann and to communicate with each other in between class times. If you're new to Slack, don't worry! Emily Ann has recorded a Slack video tutorial just for this class!
I really need this class, but finances are soooo tight... We get it. It's a catch-22. You need money to take the class to help you make the money. If you're in financial need, there is a partial scholarship application and a secret link for an 8-payment option ($35/month.) Send Emily Ann an email to receive either of these: firstname.lastname@example.org She's really nice and completely understands, especially this. Banish "Starving Artist Syndrome" is the main reason why the class exists - so you don't have to scrape the bottom of the barrel forever!
Is it recorded? Can I rewatch the classes? Yep! All the lectures and hot seat coaching sessions are recorded. We know how valuable it is to be able to rewatch yourself and re-hear these concepts. We highly encourage live attendance, but should an emergency come up and you won't be able to attend the class, you can at least watch the replay. (Live attendance is where all the good stuff happens!)
