Welcome, creatives! Are you ready to fire up your Creative Spark?
The Creative Sparks podcast gives you easy, actionable steps and simple strategies to clear more space and time, harness your creative passion and build a business.
Let’s face it,
the freelance model is broken
You’re limited by the number of hours you can work each week. Your clients are paying you for your time, and there will always be a conflict between how many hours you need to spend on a project versus the number of hours they're prepared to pay for.
The good news is you can stop struggling with burnout—there is a better way.
By introducing one simple funnel into your business, you can pivot your business model away from trading time for money, so you can double your income and start scaling.
“Being a freelance graphic designer for more than five years, I was starting to feel exhausted. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was charging by the hour and it felt like even though I was working longer hours, I wasn’t earning more. I was starting to dislike my job until I joined Dominique’s group coaching. She taught me all about creative entrepreneurship and helped me set up my first sales funnel. Let’s put it this way, if I hadn’t met Dominique, I wouldn’t be doing what I am today, launching multiple courses and digital products.”

Hi, I’m Dominique
I’m a podcast host and a design academic redefining how creative freelancers value their work.
I was a freelance illustrator for 13 years. I was fully booked and illustrated children’s books for up to 10 hours a day. I felt guilty that I should be in the studio when I wasn't illustrating. If I took a vacation, I didn’t get paid. If I got sick, I didn’t get paid.
That's when I began investigating the world of passive income and creative entrepreneurship.
The best thing about being a creative entrepreneur is channelling your creativity into branding, web graphics, sales pages, adverts, social media, and all the communication assets needed to turn your audience into customers.
I soon learned that being creative professionals, my students were perfectly positioned to build all the steps of an automated sales and marketing funnel.
