"Engaging Freelance and The Long Game"
Gibbsology - G map - round_edited.jpg

Freelance is a long game.  Unlocking it takes patience, effort, agility and luck.  The best I can offer on "luck" is a four-leaf clover keychain.  But on everything else, I have you covered!

I work with astonishingly smart and talented freelance artists.  Actors, Designers, Musicians, Writers, Painters, Story Tellers- the list goes on.  But they all hit those roadblocks that make them feel alone and ready to settle.  Gibbsology smashes the roadblocks and helps you shine your bright light in the scary corners of career building.  

  • Frustrated with your success rate for achieving work/life balance?

  • Overhwelmed by your participation in the negotiation process?

  • Can't find your tribe?

  • Intimidated to know where to start in building your brand or work as a freelance artist?

  • Feel like your network pool has dried up and don't know how to jump back in?

  • Afraid you don't know what the next step is for yourself and your work?

You know you are talented and your work can speak for itself.  You can see your finish line!  But you thought the map would appear, and it hasn't.  I can help you be your own mapmaker. Check out these program results:

  • Go from feeling on the outside of the solution to being the owner of the solution.

  • Allowing yourself to engage with colleagues and peers in a focused and confident way.

  • Have a bankable definition of the kind of work that you do best.

  • Career advancement and fulfillment.

  • Solidify and galvanize your professional relationships.

  • Present yourself and work in a new exciting light.

  • That rare feeling of knowing how to seek out likeminded colleagues and collaborators.

Things we will tackle: 

  • Establishing where to begin the next step and how to understand your resources.

  • Getting your emotional toolbox ready for negotiation and advancement conversations.

  • Building out the talking points and infrastructure to help you find your niche and sell your great work.

  • Setting up a lifestyle that has the work/life balance you are seeking.

  • Meeting the anxiety that accompanies these challenges and conquering it!
