How to build a creative agency that actually makes money.
I'm talking 'vacation-taking, health-insurance-having, people-hiring' type of money.
How to build a creative agency that actually makes money.
I'm talking 'vacation-taking, health-insurance-having, people-hiring' type of money.
What if I told you that everything you thought you knew about building a creative agency was wrong...
Like… what if I told you it actually takes the same amount of effort to close a $500 project as it does to close a $5,000?

... or that you can actually build a thriving six-figure agency, in less than 6 months, without needing a big office or a team?

What if I told you that posting your services on social media, Fiverr, and Upwork were all a waste of time... and that there was a way to automate your sales so that clients came to you... and not the other way around.

Still with me?…
Well, keep reading because I’m going to show you exactly how I’ve been helping other creatives find their clients, increase their prices, and build their profitable agency.
Let's skip the small talk... I'm ready.
Only a few spots left
But, before we get into that…
let's talk about you for a second.
Let me guess... you're a creative... right?

You always have been and always will be.

And at some point in life, you decided to turn your creative skills into a freelance business.

... right?

I mean... everyone else making money from their skills... why not you!

Besides, I'm guessing you'd much rather work 18 hours on your own thing than 8 hours working for somebody else.

And so far so good...right? You're still making money.

I mean... it's not Lamborghini money. Heck, it's barely pay-the-rent money...right?

(you can be honest with me)

And eventhough you love what you do... it's not sustainable or profitable enough for you to do it full-time.

... sounds like you?

And let me guess... you think you're alone right?

I mean... every social media "entrepreneur" has figured it out... right?

They're always getting mentioned in the press, taking pictures with celebrities, going on vacations, etc…

While you're out here still trying to figure out...

… How to find high-paying clients?
… Do you need an LLC, Corp or DBA?
… When to hire people?
… And what to do about health insurance?

Everyone else makes it look so easy. Like… how did they figure all this sh*t out?

Well… the truth is... they didn’t.

To be honest, most entrepreneurs are struggling… they’re still out there hustling and trying to figure it out.

… How do I know this?
Because, I’ve been an entrepreneur for 11 years and I was broke for 8 of them.
Hi, I’m Jacques (like Jacques Cousteau, the old French guy that… nvm you don’t know him)

I’m an entrepreneur, designer, and college professor.

I spent the last 11 years starting, growing, and selling multiple creative agencies.

Today, I run 4 six-figure agencies that have given me the freedom to work WHEN I want, WHERE I want, and with WHOM I want.

But it wasn’t always like this.
When I first started, all I wanted to do was work for myself and start my freelance design agency.

But I had no idea how to start, how to find clients, or how to charge them…

So I did the only thing I knew…

Dive headfirst, and figure the rest out later.

(such a rookie mistake)

My first official project was about $300 and back then, I thought I was RICH!!

… 🤦🏾‍♂️

But that project took me 4 months to complete it so technically, I only made about $75 a month from that client.

But I didn’t care… money was money, right?

So I kept hustling… putting in 20+ hour days, going to hundreds of networking events, sending out cold pitches via email, etc. I tried every single thing Google told me to do.

… And I guess it worked because little by little, clients started coming in.

So much that I had the “genius” idea of hiring 2 more people so that we could look bigger than we actually were.

(another rookie mistake)

Four short months later, everything came crumbling down. We ran out of money, the company went bankrupt, we had no more clients, and I laid off my entire team.

For the first time in 3 years, I went to www.monster.com to see who was hiring.

I was sad, embarrassed, depressed, scared… I felt defeated.

I was literally on the verge of giving up but then I realized what the problem was…
Problem #1—I was really good at designing, but I was really bad at business.
I had no idea…

… How to find clients.
… How to brand myself.
… How to hire people.
… How to set rates.
… How to manage my money.
… How to go about doing my taxes.
… & more

So I decided to invest in myself…

I read every business book 📚 I could get my hands on. I attended every business event I could afford. And I asked every successful freelancer I knew for advice.

It took a few months but eventually, I started getting good at this business thing.

Shortly after, I closed a $10,000 project, then a $15,000 project, and even a $25,000 project.


I went from charging $300 to charging $20,000+. I went from spending 18 hours on proposals to 3 hours. I went from having no idea how to find clients to having to refer out my clients to other freelance agencies.

Want to know what changed?

I realized that everything I thought I knew about building a creative agency was wrong.
Problem #2— I was trying to build a multi-million dollar agency so I was attracting multi-million dollar problems.
So I scaled down.

Picked a very specific niche. Picked a few services. Picked a few team members. And charged a lot of money.

Fast forward to today, the business is still running and growing. I have a small team now and we’re still closing $10k, $20k, and $50k deals with clients like McDonald's, CVS, Marriott, and Tidal.

The best thing is... those clients actually come to us now… not the other way around.
So now, let's talk about you...
If you’ve read up until this point, I can only assume that you’re a really good designer, photographer, developer, publicist, consultant, marketer, etc.

But, like when I first started, you don’t fully understand the business stuff

You know... things like:

… How to build your brand/website?
… How to find your clients?
… How much you should charge?
… How to write proposals?
… What to do about health insurance?
… What to do about taxes?
… Contracts?
… Blah blah blah

I'm going to also assume that you're tired of the instability of your creative business. You're tired of being anxious when it comes to pricing clients. You're tired of being overwhelmed by the work. And you're tired of underpaying yourself.

If that’s you... DON'T make the same mistake I made in taking a leap without a parachute.

You don’t have 8 years to play “entrepreneur” and trial-and-error your way to success…

You barely have time as it is… don’t gamble your future (or savings) by trying to do it yourself.

Let me show you how to turn your skills into a profitable creative agency that gives your life freedom and stability.

Let me introduce you to a new way to build your freelance creative agency.

   Introducing...

creative freedom

A digital program created to help you build a profitable creative agency that lets you work on your own terms, time, and place.

It's like business school, for creatives.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

1. THE COURSE
High quality, concise, and very easy to watch videos that shows you step-by-step how to gain your creative freedom. 

Join me in my studio as I talk you through all aspects of building your creative agency from getting started all the way to selling your agency.
2. THE COMMUNITY
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

Our community is a private community with other like-minded creatives on the own creative freedom journey. The community is there for you when you need feedback, resources, or a partner to assist you in a project.
3. THE TEMPLATES
Sometimes you know what you want to say but don’t have the words. Other times you have the words but you’re not sure if they’re the right things to say.

That’s why the program also comes with templates that I’ve used to close multiple 5-fig projects the last 10 years.

These are email scripts, proposal templates, contracts, etc.
4. THE COACHING
Maybe you’ve watched one of the videos and have a follow up question. Maybe you have a client meeting and you want me to review your proposal.

Twice a month, I’ll be hosting LIVE video calls to answer all of your CF questions. Calls are recorded and are made available so you can always revisit them.

Jacques, you are a GENIUS! Speaking of value, this conversation we just had was literally worth $1 million dollars. To be able to gain access to your 11 years of experience is invaluable.
