Here you are
going to state the challenges and frustrations 

It's time to say goodbye to the stressful + ineffective "whack-a-mole" strategy of business ownership, and give your business +  creativity the support + tools they need to thrive.

This is Your Moment

ready for things to change?

In just 12 weeks, you'll successfully manage your business' finances, have systems + automations in place to eliminate the overwhelm of your business' day-to-day, connect with + grow your tribe of loyal followers, and create realistic boundaries that allow you to work less, be present more, and thrive inside + out!

I  hear you.

and to that I say:

I barely have time to work with the clients I have, let alone try to implement new ways of running my business. 🤯

I haven't even launched my business yet, do I need to worry about this? 🤔

I have a hard time staying organized, I don't know if I'll be able to stick with something structured. 😬

You might be thinking:

ENROLL NOW

I've gotten these same questions from many students before, and have even asked myself some of those same things at different points in time.

Let's make your business work for YOU, and not the other way around.

What I can tell you is this—just because you can "make do" with something, doesn't mean you SHOULD.

“Without a doubt, it was one of the BEST INVESTMENTS I've made in myself and my business.”

- MOnique, owner of old salt merchants

Hi! I'm Eva, and I started my creative photography + blogging business 13 years ago. The first four years of that, I was working desk jobs full-time while pursuing my creative business as a side hustle. I've seen trends come and go, technology change, and have been there since the birth of social media (WILD times!)

I'm an enneagram type 2 wing 3, 'The Hostess' (which means I love helping + nurturing others), I have a moderate houseplant-collecting compulsion, I love gardening, my husband, my dogs, my chickens, and my cat, my mother + sister + brother are teachers, and I love bodies of water but can't swim.

Learn more

Basically—teaching is in my DNA, helping things grow brings me more joy than anything in the world, and somebody's gotta keep an eye on me at the beach.

I’ve had a wildly prolific career in the creative world, including writing + photographing two cookbooks, growing my instagram account to over 309k followers, working as a highly successful freelance photographer + stylist, running my critically acclaimed food blog Adventures in Cooking, and hosting events + photography courses.

And with this career I created for myself, I work 4 to 5 days a week, 3 to 6 hours a day. I never work nights or weekends, and have several months off for vacation. And I make over 500k a year.

full disclosure before you read any further

working smarter is a helluva lot more effective than working harder

'Hustle Culture' is a fallacy

What I learned is this:

I realized that because I’d been saying yes to everyone else for years, I’d also been saying no to myself + smarter opportunities that entire time. So I made a shift. I invested time, energy, and money in myself + my business.

And the results were kind of shocking. Even though I was working less than half the hours I had previously, I was making 2x (😱!) the amount I did the year before.

My career was the “best” it had ever been, but it was also the worst I’d ever felt on a personal and emotional level.

After finishing my cookbook while still taking on freelance clients and  keeping up with my blog + social media, I was a completely depleted burnt out husk of my former self.

Five years ago, I was broken and tired and overwhelmed.

i can help, because i've been there.

I invested time, energy, and money in myself + my business.

Here's What You Need:

The peace of mind knowing that your business runs like a well-oiled machine

Right now it feels more like you're playing a frantic game of whack-a-mole, jumping from one pressing task to another. You feel like you need your hand in every part of your business at all times. And it is exhausting.

Better boundaries between your work life + your personal life

Boundaries between what and who? It's all just one big tangled "to do" list at this point.

Structure that helps you grow your business with a solid foundation

You're not sure where to start with bettering your business. Things like implementing systems in your business (what ARE those, anyway?), nurturing profits, and cultivating an audience that actually cares about what you have to say seems like an impossible task. 

Even if you can't imagine any of the above being real for you right now, it doesn't mean you can't turn things around.

I grew my business from $0 to $500k with just a part-time assistant. I work with clients I actually like. I'm kind to people. And I only work 25 hours a week.

My program is about growing your business on your own terms.
I know you can work less hours, make more money, and still be a nice person — because I've lived it. And now, I want to show you how.

Ready to see what's inside?

I know YOU CAN DO THIS, because I did.

You're stronger than you think you are. But if you're anything like me, you need help to take your super power to the next level. You just want someone to tell you what works.

How it works

They say the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago...

so let's get started!

"Creative Business School is everything I wish I had when I started my own food blogging business"

It's one of the most comprehensive courses I've seen, even covering the less glamorous (but EXTREMELY necessary!) topics like advice on bookkeeping and taxes, scheduling social media pins, and more—all in easy-to-digest modules that fit into your schedule. This truly is a great overview for anybody looking to kickstart their own creative business."

be bold!

Michelle Lopez, Blogger + Cookbook Author at Hummingbird High

"SO grateful for this course—I haven't seen anyone teaching the things I learned here"

“Honestly one of the best courses I’ve ever taken! If you’re feeling overwhelmed and unorganized in your creative business, Creative Business School will get you right on track—all while keeping you sane and cared for in the process. It breaks down difficult things like setting goals (you can actually hit) and staying on top of your finances with easy to implement strategies. SO grateful for this course—I haven't seen anyone teaching the things I learned here as it pertains to a creative business. I highly recommend it for every creative business owner!”

"I found Eva’s program simple, easy to follow and more importantly, *just* the right mix of technical and practical advice for any creativepreneur"

A couple of my friends and I signed up to Creative Business School together. After running our individual businesses for a few years we really wanted to focus and prioritize certain aspects of our business for greater success and decided to sign up.

SUCCESS STORIES

Sam Adler, Blogger + Educator at Frosting and Fettuccine

As a certified pastry chef, baker and maker of ceramic tableware, I love what I do at Peace of Bake but struggled to find away to bring cohesion in my communication and business goals for these independent verticals of the brand. I found the exercises around identifying the right target audience, brand positioning and writing out the mission statement extremely useful. Despite having gone to business school and implemented some of these modules on other brands in the past in my marketing career I found Eva’s program simple, easy to follow and more importantly, *just* the right mix of technical and practical advice for any creativepreneur. 

I refer back to my notes and goals made during the program and happy to state everything I’ve implemented so far has given me so much assurance that my business is headed in the right direction. Thanks Eva for this roadmap to success, for your quiet, understated brilliance and reassurance that running a business doesn’t have to be that complex!

Malavika Raghavan, Blogger + Photographer at Peace of Bake

“I've been a small business owner for 9 years and I cannot recommend this course enough!”

- LINDA Lomelino

This course is the only one of its kind because...

Here's the thing with creative businesses—all the different aspects of your business are dependent upon each other for success.

Your visual branding affects your social media which affects your clientele which then in turn affects your finances. Etc, etc, etc.

One instagram or photography course isn't going to fix this. Instead, you need an all-encompassing program that gives you the tools to build a solid foundation for your business. One that supports growth AND sustains it, whether you're making 5 figures a year or 7.

OF its holistic six pillars STRATEGY

You're stronger than you think you are. But if you're anything like me, you need help to take your super power to the next level. You just want someone to tell you what works.

Successfully running a creative business presents very unique challenges and incredible opportunities…a generic "business" course isn't gonna cut it.

I have been there in the trenches with you, and know the struggles that come from making a living from your passion-driven business. And I also know the absolutely bonkers-amazing things that can happen when you’re running your small business effectively.

And you know what? You deserve some absolutely bonkers-amazing things, too!If you’re ready to roll up your sleeves, make incredible changes THIS YEAR, and grab the creative bull by the horns, then I’m waiting in Creative Business School to help you do it. See you on the other side, friend!!

Haley Hill of Haley Hill Photography

"The course was incredibly organized, easy to follow and packed with so much invaluable information, I honestly can't recommend it enough! Eva covered everything you could possibly need to know for starting and running a successful business. The modules were the perfect length and the schedule was easy to follow without getting too overwhelmed. I continue to implement so much of what I learned throughout CBS into my business today. Definitely choose the VIP option - you can't put a price tag on having direct access to Eva and the 1:1 session is so worth it.
