MO’ MONEY. LESS PROBLEMS.
MO’ MONEY. LESS PROBLEMS.
It's time to put on your business hat and taking this shit seriously.
This isn’t a “to photograph pretty stuff” workshop. This is about business only. There will be no styled shoots, no bonfires with creative inspiration talks, none of that. It isn’t always easy to hear what we have to say, but we would never tell you unless we knew it was going to help you.
We strive to teach you and share with you what it takes to be a self-employed Business Owner – to afford monthly bills, a family (if you have or want one), your own health insurance, vacations and a retirement plan. We focus on giving you a strategy and direction in your business.
Topics we keep shit real about: How to be the real you and get booked for it, key points to ensure that your website makes sense to convert into inquiries and then bookings, and the big one… marketing!
We teach you about having the right mindset about business when it comes to money, structuring your pricing realistically according to your portfolio so you do not hear crickets, answering emails properly (so that your chances of a response is higher than being ghosted), and lastly, booking consistently and what that REALLY means.
It's more than just a logo. It's you. The Experience.
They inquire. You reply. Crickets. WTF?
Getting them to book you consistently.
Jiyeon and I are a husband and wife team, working out of the San Francisco Bay Area and we attended Hustle and Flow L.A. earlier this year. The Hon’s gave great build up before the event, including giving out a crap ton of freebies weeks before the workshop was going to begin. Long story short, I feel like we took money from them. Within a month we’d already got 3 bookings, and last week marked the $10k in the bank account from our bookings. These guys aren’t going to go over the art with you, I don’t think that was ever the point. But they will teach you how to make a living at your art. Stop struggling and go to the damn workshop. Based on my results, I’m gonna go ahead and say the class is basically free.
(I’m already crying lol) As much as I hate it, I have to be honest with you guys and myself. From the moment we’ve known each other, I’ve been full of excuses. I had anxiety about so much, and I was always so indecisive (still am, working on it). It took me forever to buy my ticket to Hustle + Flow, but after seeing all those amazing reviews I just HAD to shut the fuck up and buy one. Even leading up to the workshop, I had anxiety because, well, you know. Excuses. But I finally went and the entire time I took notes meticulously, knowing full well I’d forget all the things you said if I didn’t. I’m so glad I did because guess who kept making excuses even after the workshop? I was mid-move, I had to travel for almost two months, I had too much to worry about, yada yada. None of them were real reasons to not get started on applying all the things that I learned at H+F. Fast forward to one week ago, and my bank account went negative. I had dug myself into such a deep hole, I had a major breakdown and literally yelled, “What the hell am I doing wrong?!” — I knew what I was doing wrong. I wasn’t listening to anything you had taught me. Sure, on the surface I adjusted small things here and there, but the major stuff? I hadn’t rebranded, I hadn’t changed my copy, etc. But literally two weeks ago I did a major overhaul, and one week ago I applied all the important things and went from -$350 in my bank account to EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLARS and almost $20k in 2018 bookings. I’m a 21-year-old college dropout with an AA who almost committed suicide from financial struggles and is living 1000mi away from family. My bank account has never once seen anything over $2k. And now there’s $8,000 in there, in just one week. One week. I went from constant anxiety and endless crying episodes to happy dances and tears of joy. Without you guys, I don’t know where I would be today and I truly mean it when I say I am forever grateful to the both of you for not only figuring this shit out before all of us but also being so generous and kind and GENUINELY wanting us to succeed. To anyone who may be reading this, it’s worth it. Don’t question yourself, INVEST in yourself. You deserve it. I promise you, if you attend Hustle and Flow and put the work in, you won’t regret a thing.
