Coaching for Creatives
I help creative artists define their own version of success and take ownership of their careers.
Maybe you are burned out from the hustle and grind, ready to let go of your last dream to make way for a new one, except you don't know what that dream could be.
Maybe you put your dreams and creative life on hold to work a 9-5, but you're ready to stop playing small and become a creative professional?
Maybe you're tired of watching each year pass and finding that you are no closer to raising your earning potential. You're an artist, or maker, or creative but no closer to building a career path that excites you.
You're a Creative Person
You have a lot of ideas, and you're always looking for new ways to express yourself. You may have dreamed of launching a creative business but haven't found the confidence or support to make it a reality. You may have pursued your creative business full time and are now finding yourself at the edge of burnout, not sure when you fell out of love with your dream.
I appreciate that creativity can hugely impact your career and life as an artist. The coaching I provide supports creative people such as emerging artists, makers, musicians, filmmakers, performers, and entrepreneurs in the art business.
Creative coaching can help you clarify your goals, create a personal vision and mission statement, identify strategies to overcome creative blocks, and streamline your time and energy.
Most importantly, coaching can help you take brave and strategic actions that will move you closer to achieving your dreams and creating your own opportunities.
If you want to be less overwhelmed and more focused in your creative process, life, and career, then let's hop on a FREE 30 min Clarity Call.
"As a person who often overcommitted to too many projects and juggled priorities for years, Victoria is an amazing coach, and she has helped me recalibrate on what is most important to me. When I first started working with her I often had low energy and drive when trying to tackle all the goals I set for myself. Now, I am no longer getting stuck in those motivation saps, and am looking forward to my work with enthusiasm. "

"If I hadn’t of started working with Victoria, I think I would be doing the same things… writing when I felt like it, doing open mics and shows when I felt like it. Now I’m attacking it. Seriously attacking it. Before I viewed myself as an artist, doing the work when I felt like it and thinking things would magically happen but then being resentful of the people out there who were attacking it. I was at open mics and shows feeling like I was the funniest person in the room and thinking, “I shouldn’t still be here.” I knew I had enough experience, potential, and talent to be moving up and yet because I’m not taking those actions and attacking things I’m still in the same venues with the same people, wading through a lot of bad standup to get my turn."

"When I decided to go full-time with my art practice, I knew that I needed a coach. I felt quite isolated as an artist. I was in great need of some friendly support, an accountability partner as well as someone to help me navigate the fields of social media as a marketing tool.
I came across Victoria Hines on Instagram and immediately I felt like what she offered as an art business coach was invaluable. She genuinely wants her clients to succeed!
Over the course of six months, we had great talks where Victoria guided me in figuring our what I wanted my life to look like as a successful artist... With her encouragement and valuable resources, I became more productive than ever in the studio, polished up my website, sold my art and gained momentum with my social media channels. For the first time in my life, I felt validated as a career artist!"
