Running a design studio or freelancing? Or planning to embark on the independent life? One of the key elements to running a successful creative business (be it an agency, studio or a freelance practice) is to have a good grip on your money. How much do you need to cover your basic costs? How much do you need to make a profit? Where is your money going and where is it coming from? How many projects and what kind do you need in order to break-even, make profit and strive?

Sure, you can get an accountant to help you with all this (and you should !) but having a good understanding of the financial concepts will only improve the financial wellness of your business and give you the right tools to make grounded decisions.

This is going to be a hands-on workshop during which everyone will:

  • create their own cash flow management template (I will share what works for my business and how I do that, encouraging everyone to find their own method.)
  • calculate their fixed monthly costs
  • create a system that calculates the profit / taxes and all that jazz
  • determine the needed revenue to break even
  • determine the needed revenue to make a profit
  • create a system to determine the pricing
  • create a pipeline management system
We will be working with colors, excel document (bring your laptop!) and sticky notes, keeping the whole process simple and visual. Just what visual people like :)

Join me, it is going to be fun despite the subject matter!
