Do you feel like you're always hustling, always working away, and yet not seeing the results you are after? You can't quite pinpoint whether it's your branding that doesn't set you apart, or whether you are just not built for the loudness of the market around you. All you know is that you have the passion, and you have the work ethic, but there's a fog that doesn't quite let you see the road ahead. Most of the time, it simply means a strategy for reaching your goals is missing. And sometimes, especially if you've been at this for a while, it could simply be that the changes in your industry have left you feeling like you're falling behind. I'm here to help you with that.
What is it:
One of my super powers is identifying weaknesses and opportunities in other creative businesses. I offer 1-2-1 mentoring sessions, where we'll focus on figuring out a strategy and action steps for your business. We'll lift the fog and get you moving forward with purpose. Mentoring hours are usually conducted via Skype, so it doesn't matter if you are not physically based in the UK.
Who I work with:
I work with photographers and artist entrepreneurs to help build a strategy that lets them leverage their personal style and personality. I specialise in assisting quiet creative small business owners on how to attract their ideal clients, create an authentic brand, give their creative business an engaging online presence, and help them identify the best ways to market their services.
While most who find me are photographers, my clients also include painters, designers and other creators seeking support on their entrepreneurial journey.
IS MENTORING RIGHT for you?
Mentoring with Marianne is a good fit for you if:
- you’re a photographer wanting to run a business that keeps your soul happy
- you’ve been an entrepreneur for a while but find the new pace of business and loudness of marketing challenging
- you’re an artist who struggles with the practical aspects of business and self-promotion
- you’re an introverted creative wanting to get your voice heard in an exceedingly loud market
- you want to stay inspired, motivated and fulfilled while running a profitable business as an artist
- and most importantly, if you are feeling dispirited about your business and want support from someone who can make you feel fired up and focused
4-WEEK MENTOR ME PROGRAMME
With the 4-week MENTOR ME programme, you'll receive ongoing support for 4 weeks, so that you don't have to figure it all out on your own. Your sessions will be tailored to your needs, and the topics we'll cover will depend on what you feel you need most support with. Whether you struggle with the overall strategy of your business, or a specific area such as marketing, branding or even portfolio curation, I can support you to take the next steps.
Here's what's included:
- 4 x 60-minute sessions with Marianne
- annual membership to The Breakfast Club, the home of all my online courses & tutorials
Dates and times for each hour to be agreed upon together.
I live in Cornwall in the UK, and mentoring sessions can be held in person for anyone who is able to attend a session in Newquay at a time that fits into my schedule. Otherwise, sessions will be conducted via Skype.

'We realised that Marianne offers one on one mentoring, and because we love her work, we decided to give it a try. It was the best decision we could ever have made! Marianne agreed to do our Mentor Me programme as one intensive 4-hour session, during which we went through re-evaluating the foundations of our business, before focusing on our specific questions. Our discussion gave us so much new hope for the future! We also found the Target Client Persona Workbook and the Business Plan Refresh course (included within The Breakfast Club) to be invaluable for us. When we finished the course we both agreed on which changes our business needed. We decided to build a new website from scratch, and totally overhauled all our website copy. Thanks to Marianne we now have a website which we love and we can already see that the type of people who enquire about our services has changed and we’re finally getting into the position which we always dreamed of. We can’t wait to finally shoot for our dream couples! Whether you struggle with the business part, your craft, or just want to get new ideas we would definitely recommend mentoring with Marianne. We’re forever grateful to her and can’t thank her enough!'
I can't wait to work with you!
