Good people to work with...

Everyone here, from web designers to bookkeepers, lawyers and money mentors, comes personally recommended, either from my own direct experience or that of my clients. I wanted to create a list you can come back to whenever you want a trusted source of expert support, advice or guidance. I hope you'll enjoy working with them.

artist mentor

Are you waiting to step into your Wild Creative Life? Are you looking to place your creativity at the centre of everything you do? Do you want to run an ethical, eco-friendly business that is led by your own values? Then I can help.

I support women who wish to create positive change in their own lives - and in the lives of others - through their art, whatever that looks like. I am a visual artist myself, a community arts leader, and passionate creative placemaker. I believe that art heals both individuals and communities, and that through our own individual creative actions we can transform the world in which we live.

I designed the Wild Creative Life tools for myself and now share them with other creative women who desire a life led by their creativity and lived in harmony with the Earth. It doesn’t matter what your art form is – writer, singer, dancer, painter – I have experience of working with all kinds of artists as a nonprofit arts leader.

Specific challenges I can help you with are: How to decide on your creative focus, how to centre creativity in your life, how to build a flexible business plan, how to build community around your work, how to find your own selling style, how to “green up” your studio, how to lead with your own ethical values – all the elements of a Wild Creative Life and business. Interested? A good first step is to sign up for my monthly Wild Notes in which I share some of my Wild Creative Life tools and tips. If you like what you read we can then talk about individual mentoring packages or in-person workshops. I look forward to welcoming you into my creative circle!

Jessica Uys

enneagram coach & Facilitator

I’m a Coach and Facilitator who helps people align with their true selves so they can live lives of greater intent and joy.

I believe that transformation comes from being willing to look at ourselves, and our work, with a fresh lens:

When we’re able to see what we want, what motivates us and what drives us, we’re more able to live into our strengths and desires.

And when we’re able to see our fears, triggers and blindspots, we’re more able to see how we’ve been limiting ourselves and to do what it takes to choose differently.

I help you look at how you’re showing up in your business through the lens of the Enneagram, an archetypal framework that offers a powerful roadmap to personal and professional development. The 9 styles represent the different lenses through which we tend to view the world, and that guide how we think, feel and act. Through understanding WHY we behave in the way we do, we’re more able to make conscious choices and build our businesses with greater intent.

My Enneagram for Business Alignment Programme provides you with a 40-page Professional Report, a reflective workbook plus 3 personal coaching session that take you from insight to action.

Lorraine Watson

SEO Strategist

Bringing your work into the world takes more than a beautiful website, the best copy, or the perfect brand. (And I don’t make that statement lightly surrounded here by such talented company.) You need to get found by those who are looking for exactly your help. The secret to being discovered is in knowing how people are searching for what you have to offer and creating a positive, connecting experience for them. You already have the second part covered off. The first part is where SEO steps in.

While the mere mention of SEO can be trauma-inducing, its purpose is really quite simple: solving people's problems using their own words and letting search engines know you can solve those problems. Doing that well means SEO will touch upon many areas including branding, website design, copy, and even social media and marketing.

But not to fear. You're not in this alone. As an SEO strategist, my role is to work with you in creating a plan to infuse SEO into your online presence, and then collaborate with the best resources to work the plan. Even though SEO is most easily done at the start of a project, blending SEO into an established presence can be done by reworking the necessary components.

If you're not being found right now, or want to start off on the right foot, let's chat.
