About the Author:

Hi, my name is Christine Michaelis and with my program CHANGE I help people in the creative industry to start-up their own business. Having worked as an Account Manager and Strategic Consultant in Marketing and Advertising for over ten years now, I know what it feels like not being as motivated and happy in your job as you used to be and the urge to start something by yourself. And that is what I have done. I am a creative start-up Coach and certified NLP Practitioner. I strongly believe that if you love what you do, you are much happier in your life. With me, you will get clarity, discover values, analyse who your ideal client is, narrow down the steps involved in setting up your own business, grow your confidence and engage your audience. And if you fancy becoming your own marketing expert, my program RESULT will help you with that. My current clients include Photographers, Creatives, Account Manager and Landscape Architects. But there are much more creative professions out there. So, contact me to talk about how I can help you and a free consultation at hello@christinethecoach.com
