Running a Creative Business

If you helm a studio or a production company, you have a powerful sense of direction. But owners often lack perspective…

“I have a compass, but what I need is a map.”

With growth comes challenges and as they become more acute, you may find yourself asking:

THE STARTUP SEASON

“I’m overwhelmed. What must I focus on instead of wearing all these hats?”

THE EMERGING SEASON

“We’re too reactive. How do we shift from being the order-taker to leading our clients?”

THE THRIVING SEASON

“We’re swamped. How can we scale to produce even greater (and consistently profitable) work?”

THE MATURE SEASON

“This pace is blistering. How can my team master the decision-making to run this company?”
