What you'll learn

Planning and process are sexier than you think.

The last 18 months have been pretty sh*t for photography businesses. But let’s not dwell on it! Let’s use this experience to set ourselves up for a better future. 

This is not a ‘watch and then do it later’ workshop (because let’s face it, you won’t), it’s a ‘let’s do it NOW’ workshop. When you sign off at the end of the workshop, you will be 100% ready to start putting your 2022 goals into action with unstoppable energy and determination, and all the tools you need to be profitable and in control!

You’ll learn my 6 step process for planning marketing, calendar and budget and how I crunch boring numbers to create awesome, fun business goals. 

I am going show you how to consistently booked, smash your goals and maintain a proactive, rather than a reactive business. You’ll also learn how to work less hours and take lots of holidays, because you bloody well deserve it!

Plus, you’ll be able to repeat this process for yourself in the future. 

Your workshop ticket includes five original Katie K templates to keep. These templates are not for sale individually and are usually only supplied to one-on-one mentees!

You need to attend this live, as it is a hands-on, DOING class, not a demonstration or a chat-fest. So while it will be recorded, the recording will only be supplied to those who attend the class so they can review bits that need more attention. There will be time to ask questions and numbers will be limited so everyone feels seen and heard.  

What you'll receive

Holy sh*t! That's a total of $2120 value!

But don’t disappear just yet! I’m not going to charge you even close to that. Why? Because it wouldn’t be an easy decision if it was that expensive, would it?

Yep. I'm in.

Great! It's a no brainer, right?

Katie is both a business coach and a hands on business owner who has her finger on the pulse at all times. Katie helped me take my business and my own sense of self to the next level. Katie has become an extension of my business, pushing and stretching me to reach my personal business goals. With her help my business has become sustainable and more profitable faster than I ever thought possible. The best thing about Katie is that she is genuinely focused on bringing out the best in you and your business... and she is crazy good at it. She has helped me navigate the murkiest of waters with grace, understanding, empowerment and a whole lot of heart... and for this I am eternally grateful. Achieving worthwhile goals requires hard work. If you’re not willing to work, you’ll be wasting your time with Katie. There is nowhere to hide, and that is why you will succeed. In a laser focussed mentoring session, Katie will help you punch through your mental roadblocks and help you take on the world. She brings years of experience to the table with her success at Heartstory photography. Because she is still in the business arena, her advice is relevant and it matters. She will give you clarity on your next steps and best of all, Katie will help you grow as a person and business owner. ​

This is what we're going to work through

And the absolute best thing about this workshop is that the work will be done during the workshop

This is not one of those courses you’ll buy and never do. Or the ones you show up to and never finish. 

The work will be done when you sign off at the end, and all you have to do is execute tasks at the times you’ve scheduled. 

and you’ll get to chat through any burning questions and troubleshoot issues during your one-on-one call with Katie afterwards. 

Photography educators don’t normally run workshops like this, but I actually run a photography business and I work in it and I know the blocks and the pain points and the struggle – I’ve lived them!

Just show me the price.

Why I'm teaching this

Because I want you to stop feeling like your business is a rollercoaster. Sometimes it’s going so fast you feel like you can’t keep up. Other times you’re stuck in a queue watching everyone else have the time of their lives. Sometimes it’s terrifying, sometimes it’s a rush. It’s rough and bumpy and when you get a glimpse of yourself at the end, you look like  you walked off the set of a zombie movie. 

Business should feel more like a garden. You know how to take care of it. It has a rhythm. You give to it, it gives to you. Occasionally there’s a (good or bad) surprise and sometimes things don’t work out quite like you hoped, but as long the essentials are met and you don’t neglect it, it grows and flourishes and makes you feel good.

I want to show you how it’s possible to turn the rollercoaster into a lush garden with structure and planning. And it’s going to feel fun, refreshing and easier than you imagine. So much so, that you’re going to look back and wish you learnt this stuff years ago. 

We lost over $100,000 worth of work in the first half of 2020. But in the second half, we smashed every goal we’d ever had and some we’d never dreamt of! We revamped internal processes, increased pricing, re-set our marketing strategies and went onto have our biggest financial year to date—with an increase of 40% revenue on top of our highest previous year. We also had our biggest quarter, our biggest month and our biggest week! Our biggest week was $30K+ in revenue from family portrait sales! This financial year (2021-2022) started with us breaking our monthly sales record again and hitting $82,000. We also booked over 115 sessions from one marketing campaign which cost us $0 to run, and which will eventually generate over $250,000 in revenue. The most recent lockdown in Canberra went on for over 9 weeks and yes this has cost us again, but it will be a small blip in another successful year. We are not wizards, but we know our numbers and we plan like ninjas. We run a proactive business and we only work 30 hours a week. This is something that is possible for any and every single photography business owner to do and I really, really, really want to show you how!
