If you have a case of the crazies because of everything on your to-do list …

If you’re overwhelmed by possibilities without knowing where to begin …

If you are so busy with daily tasks that you have no time to work on building your business …

Our Art Biz Mastermind Workshops are for you.

Art Biz Mastermind Workshops

Thank you for hosting and approving my application to join you at the workshop in Portland. What a powerful group of artists for those two days!
I realized how important it is as artists/entrepreneurs to connect and build a network of supportive people around us. I appreciate that you surround yourself with artists that are serious about their work and their businesses. It speaks volumes about your coaching program.
I will definitely participate again in one of your workshops.

Here’s What Happens at Our Workshops

At these 2-day events, I shine the spotlight on your business in a small-group format.

It’s different from a class because you bring the agenda and I teach around what you need. What a deal, right?

Don’t worry if you don’t know what your priorities are. I’ll help you prepare to get exactly what you need during our time together.

This is an opportunity to get personal feedback from me (Alyson) at an affordable rate and in a fun place to visit! Keep reading – we selected terrific locations for you.Art Biz Mastermind Workshop

Day 1 is your day to think big.

  • Build on successes.
  • Learn from others’ experiences.
  • Brainstorm in small groups.
  • Explore and contemplate the possibilities.

Day 2 is your day to get clarity.

  • Hear about best practices from other attendees.
  • Narrow your options.
  • Receive guidance from small groups (and me).
  • Finalize your plan.

About Our Guests (You)

Many of our guests are members of my Art Biz Inner Circle.

I also open available slots to other ambitious artists like you. Let me be clear that this is for serious artists. I’m looking for commitment to a business and career.

You know that it’s tough to take big leaps by yourself. You believe in investing in yourself and know that you will grow exponentially with the right support.

The total number of attendees is capped at 30 per session because I want these to be intimate gatherings where you get plenty of personal attention.

Trudy Rice - artist

I traveled from Australia to the Portland workshop, and it was well worth the time and expense.

Meeting other like minded artists in person, in an intense, concentrated way, put the experience of being in the Art Biz Inner Circle on steroids.

The way you guided us through the exercises helped me narrow down the next steps of my journey.

Here’s why … 

Alyson Laughing

I have a vision for what I want my life to be like.

It’s a home with an extra space for artists like you who might drift in and out. Maybe you’re here in Colorado on vacation or maybe you come to work or maybe you just come to hang out with me.

It’s kind of an Artist B&B/Residency combo.

You come to my home and make art during the day. Then, I invite some artist friends I think would be fun for you to hang out with for the evenings. That’s when we sit around a big table and talk about art and big ideas over a beautiful meal.

Right now, I don’t have the extra space for an official B&B, so I’m trying out Mastermind Workshops in other locations. Join me!
