Artist Success Workshop

January 10-11, 2023

Start the new year with intention.

This is for you if …

Success is a slippery word.

I call these Success Workshops, but …

I wouldn't dream of telling you what success means. Only you can define success. It's different for every artist I've worked with. 

Once you know what you want, I will help you—during our sessions together—figure out the steps to take to reach those goals.

Knowing your direction, enjoying the journey, and completing your intentions. 

THAT's success! (I guess I can define it after all.)

Attending your planning sessions was one of the most valuable things I've done personally or professionally. I had about 45 balls in the air and felt like I was drowning.

Just identifying my projects on paper and then listing out the tasks required for each really helped clear my head. Then applying the project approach with a paper schedule and task list was huge.

I now have a solid plan of attack for my ambitious projects. Several people close to me have commented about how focused and energetic I’ve been since putting my plan into action.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Everyone gets access to the most recent updates for The Artist Organizer (templates for getting yourself organized using Notion). 

Your planning session has really helped me zero in on what I’m going to be doing these next three months and I’m so excited by the possibilities.

PLANNING PREP

You will get the most from the live sessions when you come prepared with some kind of vision for 2023. But don't worry! In the suggested preparation, I walk you through a process that helps you home in on your priorities. This gives you access to all material from previous planning sessions. (It's a lot!)

OPEN OFFICE HOURS

BONUS for people who sign up by December 20. 

I'm happy to offer mini coaching sessions to review your plan and priorities during these open hours. Drop in Wednesday morning (11am-12pm Eastern) or Thursday afternoon, January 12 (5-6pm Eastern).

Recorded and available to all Bonus recipients.

I have taken other planning workshops and they have been totally overwhelming and just left me frustrated or freaked out and running in the other direction.
Your workshop was nothing like these and a wonderful, productive experience. Not overwhelming at all! 

I went from skeptical on the first day to completely loving your methods and systems by the last day.  I walked away from it with a plan in hand and a fresh, I can do this attitude.

Live Sessions

This is a WORKshop. Much of your success will be from following the preparation tips and doing that work ahead of time. Come prepared to work, discuss your progress, share what you like, and get feedback as needed. 

Tuesday January 10

INTENTION FOR THE DAY
PROJECT CLARITY

Sessions from 2-5:30pm Eastern Time (New York)

How nice it will be to have ideas and posts ready to go for when life gets hectic and you have more important things to think about.

By the end of the day you will be much clearer about your top 3 focus projects for the upcoming months and have additional possibilities for the rest of the year.

Plenty of breaks.

Homework: Prep for Wednesday

Wednesday January 11

11am—12pm Eastern Time : Open Office Hours with me (*BONUS)

INTENTION FOR THE DAY
MONEY
CLARITY

Sessions from 2-5:30pm Eastern Time

Money isn't everything. And it's certainly more important to some than to others.

Building on the project clarity from Tuesday, I will walk you through the Art Biz Income Accelerator, a process I developed to help you get real about how you will make money in your art business. 

With breaks!

 

Friday January 13

4-5pm Eastern Time : Open Office Hours with me (*BONUS)

Open Office Hours on Wednesday and Thursday are for those who sign up by December 20, 2022. 

I'll be on Zoom for this hour to answer any questions about your plan, strategies, or business systems. I added one on Friday in case you have questions after sitting with your plans for more than 24 hours.

Recorded and available to all who receive the bonus.

You are optimistic about the possibilities ahead.

You know that it's valuable to work intentionally ON your business rather than taking things as they come along.

You understand that you're more likely to do this work if you set aside the time and work on it with others

You accept responsibility, own your choices, and are ready to take action.

Hi. I'm Alyson Stanfield.

I appreciate your reading this far on the page. 😉

Activate Your Year builds on the Artist Planning Sessions that I led 6 times over the past couple of years.

What's different in AYY is that I want you to do less listening to me and more listening to each other. I want you to share experiences and get more useful feedback that will help you be more confident in the actions you take in the New Year.

I'm the author of I'd Rather Be in the Studio: The Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion, leader of Artist Planning Sessions, and the host of The Art Biz podcast.

I love to work with clients with a growth mindset who challenge themselves with increasingly prestigious goals.

I am so happy I took your Artist Planning Sessions class last month and I look forward to taking more. They really got me back on track. I haven't felt this focused and inspired in a long, long time! I needed some structure and organization to get going.
