The "So You Wanna Be A Design'a Design Academy" is a monthly membership for designers who are in the early years of their freelance or small business journey and are looking for mentorship to help them navigate all that comes with running a smooth & profitable design business.

Whether you are a graphic designer, web designer, or other type of creative professional who offers design as a service, this is for you!

So Why A Design Mentorship?

Over the years my design business has grown to six figures and has been very successful. I want to share my experience, as well as  give you all the tools, processes and design tips to better your design business.


As your mentor I will introduce you to many things such as easier systems,  a new way of thinking, and growth in your biz! I will be there to help you and answer your questions along the way.


You will walk away with new design techniques, skills, templates, resources, new peers, and not to mention confidence! You will also walk away with strategies that will help you ATTRACT design clients & not chase them!


So What Makes This Mentorship Different?
