Master the magic behind running a successful service-based business

The Fanciful Academy for Creative Entrepreneurs was founded in 2019 by Natasha Cozad to help creative service providers add value to their offerings so they can confidently charge what they’re worth and build the career of their dreams.

Common issues designers and other service professionals face are charging too little for their services, and not knowing how to charge the right price or how to serve clients with premium service for premium prices. These issues affect the entire industry by driving prices down for everyone. 

A high-quality brand and well-designed and developed web site is a valuable investment, and there are clients out there that know that who will happily pay your higher fees for a job well done.

By following the courses and materials offered by The Fanciful Academy you’ll solve tech problems like how to make WordPress as easy as Squarespace, how to craft a memorable brand and offer premium services, and how to simplify the creative process using systems & automation.
