Creative Summit Group


As a passion-driven business owner, often told you will never make money from your craft, it can often feel like an uphill struggle in business!.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You create something amazing, get excited, post it on social media and then nothing. Nobody clicks the buy it now button and you feel disheartened because you put your heart and soul into making it.

  • You are easily distracted, daily. You start out with good intentions and then an idea pops into your head and you are off chasing shiny objects instead of following a plan.

  • You can’t seem to stick to your goals. Having goals and deadlines makes you feel trapped and you end up leaving things to the last minute and ‘winging it’.

  • You are afraid to price your work at what it’s worth. You don’t think people will pay what you really want to charge (and deserve to) so you keep your prices so low that you are hardly making a profit.

  • You battle with your mind monkeys. You struggle with your self-confidence and compare yourself to others all the time, thinking they are better than you.

It’s so easy to feel lost in this big online space and not know where to start in creating solutions.

Creative Business Academy

The perfect solution can be found in a community of like-minded people led by successful creative business women.

    The linear thinkers in this world just don’t understand how you think.  When you are among people who ‘get you’ and learning from people who have been you, then everything changes.

    A world-class community with real, down-to-earth training sessions that can genuinely solve your business problems is waiting.

    Imagine if you could…

    • Sell your products consistently and create additional income streams. Building a portfolio of passive, semi-passive, product and service-based income streams will help you sleep at night.  Predictable income instead of feast and famine.

    • Calm and control your chaotic mind. Having a clear plan and learning the skills to keep you on track is a game changer for your business.  No more distractions, just great planning and productivity.

    • Stay on track and build solid foundations. Creating a plan which inspires you and keeps you motivated will be where you start to visualise success.  Planning well and setting quality goals will be your new business besties.

    • Charge a fair price for your incredible work. As you build your self-worth, you build your financial worth, thinking like a businessperson instead of a starving artist.

    • Know without doubt that you are worthy of success. Taking back control of your thoughts and placing yourself firmly in charge is where your new journey starts.  The journey to business growth.

    All of this for the price of a couple of takeaways each month!

              Mandy has made it her mission to step into the creative space and change the lives and fortunes of creative women.

              Only 13 years ago, Mandy experienced a series of unfortunate events that resulted in her losing her 6-figure career, 13-year marriage, every penny she had and much more. But, 10 years later in 2019 Mandy had met and married her soul mate, manifested, and paid cash for, their dream home and launched her dream business.

              Despite COVID and the death of her beloved husband in 2020, Mandy kept going and her business reached 6-figures and has continued to grow. In 2021 she put her dream home on the market, sold it the same day and moved to Scotland into her ‘mini castle’ where she has created her hospitality and retreats business adding a further 6-figure income stream to her business portfolio. It doesn’t stop there because there are even bigger things in the pipeline.

              You are in good company and Mandy will be sharing her decades of knowledge and experience with you.

              Lucy is a self taught artist, who has always had a passion for creativity. She loves to explore and express herself using bright colours. After quitting a heavy drinking addiction of 24 years, Lucy came alive at the beginning of 2019 when she began to reignite her love for splashing vibrancy onto a blank canvas.

              “Art is like breathing to me. We are all creative beings at our core, and for so many years I hid behind the drink, suppressing my true colours. Now I am alive and I love to spread that joy onto the canvas and into the world for all to benefit. Life is for having fun and expressing ourselves.”

              Lucy loves the freedom that art provides for her, being playful and having fun are the key elements  to her every day success. Lucy also teaches art and it gives her such a sense of pleasure to see others being creative.

              Lucy is a genius at marketing herself and has fab knowledge on how to run a successful creative business. It’s another of her passions to help women thrive and build their business so they can live the life of their dreams.
