Creative Outlier; defn. an individual who defines success on her/his own terms, who doesn't follow "group think", a visionary


What if your life was instantly easier? What if you were more Confident, Focused and Relaxed? What if you found as much Joy in building your business as you do in creating your work?


Let's get right to it, shall we? For those who want the quick version.

Below are a whole list of the benefits and features of this community but if you want to know the transformation you can expect by being a part of this group, read on.

I mean what do you really get if you invest in this community?

First off, you know that when you invest? put some skin in the game that you actually take action and see results, right? FREE isn't going to cut it. Believe me, I've tried. It wasn't until I shifted this mindset from years of figuring everything out myself {do you know how many more paintings I could've painted instead?} to investing in expertise and support that I got unstuck and filled with mind blowing knowledge to transform my life and business. {And I'm not exaggerating with "mind-blowing", ladies and my few gentleman; we are at the beginning of SO much to come!!!}

Becoming a Creative Outlier will transform you into a Confident, Self-Assured, Relaxed Creative Business Owner with a clear sense of purpose, knowledge and the time to focus on the exact next steps to build a profitable business that you know is going to fulfill and support you.

You can make it hard or ~ realize that you don't have to expend endless energy and resources with countless attempts, and questions in your head, or figure it all out alone anymore. Our community comes with Me guiding you! plus a built in trusted, inspiring network of professionals with the same spirited creative vibe, a genuine desire to support one another, while we level up and celebrate our wins!!!

The challenge for today's Creative Business Owners is:

You're in business, you have knowledge, maybe you've even invested in courses, you're in so many "Facebook groups", but you're still not moving the needle forward in your business. You're finding it a challenge to focus, to know what action to take to get real results. And you're not actually taking action?

You're working harder but you aren't really making the financial progress you want

You feel like you're spinning your wheels trying to come up with the "next thing" to take your business to the next level and instead ending up feeling frustrated and overwhelmed

You can't keep up with all the social media, marketing and technology changes

You're tired of feeling overwhelmed by business and life responsibilities

To have a successful business in today's marketplace, you have to adapt to an ever-changing landscape that asks you to have exceptional skills at marketing, social media, design, writing, photography, how to build multiple income streams and how to outsource...And when will you ever have time to hone your craft and focus on your strengths and your gift which is why you started a business to begin with? How can you keep figuring it all out alone? Or take yet another course, only leaving you with more questions, overwhelm and no place to get a real answer.

Look, bottom line time: No one person can have expertise in all the areas we now need to run a successful business (and life for that matter). And that's great news! because it means we're going to be more comfortable turning to the support and learning from one another.

You can no longer do it all alone and expect measurable sustainable results. And let's be honest spending time on social media, especially in free Facebook groups isn't giving you the knowledge or the connections you need. Not everyone shares your positive attitude, your professionalism, desire for focus to reach your goals, financial freedom and living your purpose to serve your tribe.

The solution:

More personal expertise and guidance plus the consistency of a visionary creative community, lead by an experienced Creative Entrepreneur. It's time to surround yourself with a group who will support you, champion your vision and offer the knowledge you need to get faster results and grow smarter and with more ease.

You want access to expertise and resources that would take you years and thousands of dollars to find on your own

This community is not for you:

If you are closed minded

Negative

You want to effort more, work more, trudging up hill all the way while building and growing your business

Let Fear and Self Doubt keep you from fulfilling your purpose

You treat your business like a hobby

A message from Marisa:

A combination of failures and wins have lead me through 11 years of making a living as an artist, and today I'm answering the call for what I see missing in our landscape, for the mentorship I would have loved to have as I was growing my business ~ this kind of community. A visionary from the time I began my podcast in 2006, started teaching online in 2008 and opened my first online community in 2012. Technology has finally met what I envision and this is the community I am ready to lead. I welcome you to be a part of the beginning of something special! Watch the video above for more of my story on how this community came to be.

Together we're building a movement ~ creating our own Eco System, and encouraging more creatives to thrive and transform the way we do business.

Support, encouragement, inspiration and achievable action are the intentions behind my teaching style. It's all about empowerment with more ease and less overwhelm, trusting your intuition and loving your life. ~ Marisa

Testimonials ~ Here's what others have to say...

"I am loving the mastermind and Outliers groups so much. I've had some shifts already! I'm painting up a storm, getting ready for the group's art walk/website launch. And I've had a big shift around the whole teaching possibility. I am starting to feel out what aspect of art-making really calls to me, what would I want to delve into and share with other artists in the form of a little online course. And this is coming from a place of inspiration and excitement. I'm amazed that I'm even typing all of this!

Just wanted to share. Feeling good.. I'm a very happy Creative Outlier!"

- Karla

"Such a blessing having Marisa in the world! You've made such a difference in my corner of the world, especially way back in 2010 {before the "In the Fishbowl, Life as an Artist Online" was born} Life was hard back then and the Fishbowl Course was a beacon of light! Thank you for all your support and encouragement!"

~ Stephey

"I consider it several wins that I was able to find this group in the first place. I have already wasted quite a bit of time and money taking online courses that only proved to confuse and befuddle me. I know there are simpler ways to do this. I really appreciate Marisa's generosity and that of everyone here".

~ La Sandra

"Thank you for the wonderful meetings. I love working under your guidance because you keep things so simple, easy going. I'm hoping to accomplish my one-step-at-a-time goals. Start selling my products!"

~ Kay

"I cannot recommend Marisa’s classes highly enough! She is such a wonderful teacher. Super passionate and enthusiastic about her class content and she is really talented at being able to convey her information in a clear and interesting way. Marisa puts so much time, effort and energy into her classes that it is a wonderful experience. You can’t help but learn from her. Her passion for the business of creativity is completely addictive that you will go away completely fired up!"
