Your people are waiting for you!
The Make It Happen membership group exists to boost confidence and spark action.
The movement is led by me, Leona Thrift-ola, and I’m here to walk by your side with a community of over 200 creative Indie Biz owners.
We are jewellery makers, graphic designers, childrenswear labels, illustrators, publishers, designer-makers, homewares brands, photographers, subscription box owners and much more – a collective of unique individuals around the world figuring it all out one step at a time.
The vision is to empower and inspire you to play by your own rules. To work according to your own unique set of values and learn how to communicate them to your audience. To let go of the ‘right’ way to do something and embrace finding your own way with the willingness to do the work and learn by making your own mistakes.
Support, know-how, inspiring stories, a helping hand to get unstuck and a gentle kick up the bum when you need it.
The self-paced group delivers weekly content via email, live Q&As, challenges, online workshops and a supportive Facebook community. You will have access to the HUB which is full of an incredible array of indie biz resources to equip you for the challenges you may face and guide you to grow both personally and professionally.
