Creative Coach


25 simbi per package - Virtual OK

I can talk just about any creative person through a creative funk, if they actually want to get out of it. I'll ask a LOT of questions, and your answering those questions (and my asking even more questions) helps dig you out of the funk. I'll throw in bits of hard-knocks wisdom when it's applicable, and sympathize with the hell that is creative funks, too. But mostly, I'll ask a LOT of questions and pick apart your answers with you until we uncover the root of the funk, and find a good direction for you to head in that YOU are comfortable with. (You're probably going to be the one to discover it.)

I prefer email, but Skype is an option if email is absolutely non-viable. Plan for around 5-6 emails on the high end for one session, or whenever you feel like you've found some creative clarity.

Training & Qualifications

An internationally collected fine art painter, a jeweler, designer, work in sales, and do my own content and web mastering. I'm the go-to friend for all of my network when they hit a creative funk or need small biz advice.

Availability & Preferences

Variable - I work from home. Not a morning person though.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Abby Markov

I'm a fine art painter, jeweler, and designer, but my friends come to me most for advice - I'm their business therapist. Like a good therapist, I don't give answers or textbook advice - I ask question...s and point out connections that someone might not be able to see when in the middle of the situation. show more
