I'm transitioning Indie Roller in 2020 and creating an annual membership that delivers quality and affordable business guidance that is accessible to all creatives.
This will launch with a Kickstarter on 1st October 2019 and we need 1,000 of you to come on this adventure to make it a reality! The annual package is mega affordable at a flat rate of £29 for everyone. For this pledge you will receive my first ever book (yikes!) the Indie Roller Handbook by the end of the year, an online course to bring the book to life in January 2020 and a year’s worth of online support with monthly masterclasses and quarterly meet-ups. For those who enjoy Facebook communities our current Indie Roller fb group will evolve into a group for the annual membership.
The ultimate vision is to create a comparison-free community that works together for the success of everyone.
Let's lay clear foundations to bring our work into the world from a place of self-belief and self-care to build long term sustainable businesses.
I can't wait for this next chapter!
For £29, you'll receive:
- A 40,000+ word book “The Indie Roller Handbook”
- An online course plus monthly masterclasses
- Be a part of 1,000+ member community
- Invitations to quarterly meet-ups around the UK
The Indie Roller Handbook
Are you ready to try something different?
Perhaps you want to get going but you don’t know where to start?
Could your business journey lack clarity?
Are you in a creative slump?
You’d like to shake things up to spark the love again!
I’ve written an easy-to-use book that shares practical strategies and behind-the-scenes stories to inspire you to build a business in a way that makes sense to the rhythm and values of your life. We delve into planning, financials, branding, designing, manufacturing, marketing, selling, suppliers and evolving - all written by and for companies of one.
The Handbook also includes the RAINBOW Reframe to inspire you to reset thought patterns and feel your feelings as a foundation to positively propel you and your business forward. It’s a mindset framework to empower you to bring your work into the world from a place of self belief and self care. When you prioritise yourself within your creative biz journey you can reach your true potential and bloody well enjoy it!
Throughout the book I share the real stories from my 17 years running creative businesses which include jewellery label Lady Luck Rules OK, a vintage website Thrift-ola and subscription box Lucky Dip Club. We are joined along the way by a handful of brilliant Indie Rollers who also share how they are making it happen.
The book ends with an in-depth kick-ass resources section because I don’t believe in keeping contacts a secret. Knowledge is power and this is about lifting the indie collective higher so we all succeed.
You can launch, grow, run and evolve a thriving Indie Biz with the truths and secrets shared in the Indie Roller Handbook.
Your copy will be delivered by post before Christmas 2019. An audio version will also be made available.
The online course to guide you through The RAINBOW Reframe at your own pace
On Monday 13th January 2020, a 7-part online course will be delivered to your inbox for you to work through at your own pace.
The online course brings to life the RAINBOW Reframe so you can integrate the parts that resonate with you into your business practises.
Both video and audio lessons are available which are no longer than an easily digestible 20 minutes. Downloadable worksheets and checklists are provided to support you to do the work, build habits and move towards your business vision and measures of success.
The course content includes:
Resilience - The essence of the keep going campaign and building self worth as a business owner.
Authenticity - You do you and learn how to tell your story.
Intention - How preparing for mistakes to happen and defining your purpose is the path to growth.
Nurture - Do less to deepen your impact, reflect to move forward and debunking the overnight success myth.
Boundaries - Actively taking care of yourself to build a long-term business.
Own it - Stop apologising and feel the fear as a springboard for change.
Way forward - You’ll probably never feel ready and that’s OK. The ideal ratio of winging it and planning to enjoy turning your
seeds of ideas into a profit and purpose driven business.
The community – support & sharing with like-minded business owners
Join the lively Indie Roller closed Facebook community to support you to do the work. Our carefully admined group will ensure a high quality of content and sign-posting answers to avoid repetition. Let’s share stories, collaborate and cheerlead one another so no-one feels alone on their creative business journey.
Our team of industry experts will be on-hand to answer specific queries ranging from manufacturing to marketing.
A monthly Masterclass starting in February will be delivered via Facebook live to discuss a key area of the Handbook. The Masterclass recording will be emailed to every Kickstarter backer throughout 2020
Quarterly meet-ups around the country
Stepping out from behind our screens and meeting IRL is one of my favourite parts of Indie Roller and a brilliant way to re-ignite inspiration and take strength from a small handful of humans who just get it.
The meet-ups will happen once a quarter and the cities chosen will be voted for by the community. The dates and venues will be emailed to all Kickstarter backers by February 2020 so you can reserve the dates of interest in your diary.
Can’t wait to meet you!
