15 Minute Magic

Change your mindset and your business in just 15 minutes a day

We live in an age of information.
Books, podcasts, e-courses, webinars… if there’s something you need to know to run your creative business, the chances are you’ve probably already looked into it, in-depth. We know what we need to be doing.

Where we fall down is the action. We’re busy, and we’re tired. Pinterest, Instagram, Mailing Lists, Blogging, PR… there are just too many plates to keep spinning, and too many good reasons to procrastinate, get distracted, or just plain old give up.

Despite how it might feel sometimes, you’re not the problem here. And you’re definitely not alone.
In fact, I think ‘to do’ list overwhelm is the most common problem I see amongst clients, students and business friends

What you’ll learn

  • Why the human brain seeks to procrastinate, and how to manage it
  • Nailing a visual and photographic style that feels authentic and exciting to you
  • The secrets to visual ‘clickbait’ and creating viral imagery
  • How to future-proof your account and build something truly sustainable
  • Figuring out your ‘why’, and what you’re really working towards
  • How to read your analytics to draw meaningful conclusions

  • The apps, tips and tricks that pro Instagrammers use behind the scenes
  • How to create a gallery that is irresistibly followable
  • How to start using Stories and Live broadcasts to transform your community
  • How to set up a workflow to do all of this in as little as 20 minutes a day

You’ll also get…

  • Daily 15-minute prompts
  • A proven self-coaching formula to catch procrastination before it takes hold
  • A beautiful printable workbook
  • A private members-only podcast to learn on the go

  • Real and actionable strategies to start improving things right away
  • Weekly Group Coaching sessions

You’re not lazy or unmotivated.
You just need to learn how to manage your mind.

15 Minute Magic is different.

This program is designed with action in mind. No long videos or reading assignments to fit in – just 15 minutes, wherever you can squeeze it into your day. We’ll draw on the key elements that are essential for focus – novelty, challenge, passion, a deadline with a ticking clock – to push past resistance and get straight into leaps of action, on the daily. Get in, do your task, and then get out – no scrolling, no distractions, no wasted time.

You started your business to do your work, not to become a full time email-answerer and social media manager. Sure, we know we need a Pinterest strategy, should be building consistency, could be making more sales via Reddit and Facebook and reaching out to PRs. But who has the time? And honestly, who even knows where to start?

I’ve got you ❤️

Over the next three months in 15 Minute Magic we’ll be covering everything you need – Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, email marketing, press coverage, blogging and more – plus the essential work of goal setting, planning, and tackling the roadblocks of resistance, procrastination and self-doubt along the way.

15 Minute Magic is based on how I really work, and how I’ve built my multi-six figure business alongside juggling a young child, a chronic health condition, untreated ADHD and an NHS day job for the first couple of years. When your time is scarce it’s essential that you invest it wisely. Every 15 Minute Magic activity is based on real-world experience in both my own business, and those of my clients. They’re the small steps that reap big rewards.

I’ve helped hundreds of clients grow followings in the thousands, launch successful online businesses and make their creative dreams come true.rnrnI’m a photographer and creative with an (overly)analytical mind and a love for all forms of communication. I’m passionate about the internet as a gateway to human connection: that’s how I grew my Instagram following past 200k, built a blog readership of over 45k a month and was able to quit my job to follow my dreams full time. I’ve been featured by Stylist magazine, The Guardian, The Independent, Buzzfeed, BBC Radio and more, as well as talking about Instagram and social media for creatives at events and conferences around the world.

Our next class will be on sale on Monday 27th January and will begin on Monday 10th February, running for 7 weeks (6 weeks of classes plus a ‘rest week’ mid way.) . If you buy on the first day of presale, this means you have three weeks to get organised, to get to know some of your classmates in the community and access some of the pre-course material.
This course was written based on my 1:1 client work with bloggers, small businesses, makers, photographers and artists. It’s specifically for anyone looking to grow an audience for a purpose on Instagram, and for people who want to overhaul their account and fix any problems they’ve hit along the way.rnIf you’re not interested in strategy and prefer to focus on your creative instagram output, you might find my other classes, Bloom & Grow and Gloom & Glow a better place to start.
B&G and G&G are like The Insta Retreat‘s little sisters. There’s no overlapping content between any of my courses, and each is designed to deliver results on its own terms, without needing anything else.rnThe Insta Retreat gives a comprehensive look at everything you need to know to run a successful Instagram account, from photography to growth, and helps to fix any issues or snags you might hit along the way. The shorter courses place more of an emphasis on creativity, and are less technical and heavy on strategy.rnIf you’d like to do both, I recommend only working through one at a time to see the best results. If you’re not sure which is right for you, drop me an email or tweet & I can help you decide :).
Absolutely. If you like to plan ahead and do things with clarity, then taking this course first is a great way to arm yourself in advance. You’ll be required to complete certain tasks on Instagram as you go along, so you’ll need an account set up and ready to begin at the start of the course.
Yep! I’ve worked with a wide range of clients from beginners to Instagram pros, and I’ve found we are all always learning. I’m sharing insight and ideas I’ve developed through years of professional instagramming, and I’m confident there’ll be content you’ve never considered or heard about before. The earlier modules might cover ground you’re already confident with, but it’s a great opportunity to solidify and take stock before concentrating on growth in the later lessons. Even having written this myself, I still find myself coming away with new reflections and improvements to my own work each time I run this course!
