Entrepreneurs in Film and Entertainment
If you belong to this club of irrepressible creators, you believe you can do better on your own than you could if you were working for someone else. That's because you've got ideas, are self-reliant, want to do things your own way, and don't want to answer to anyone else.
It also means you're in charge - of everything. That's exciting, but can be overwhelming. And, often, scary. If you're just starting out, there's tremendous uncertainty about what to do; and if you're already in business, there tends to be a learning curve, where what you don't know becomes blatantly obvious. Even if you have been established for decades, problems can arise that you haven't been trained to handle.

- How to advertise
- Getting the right legal advice
- Getting a perspective of what stage you are in
- Handling emergencies
- Effective time and resource management
As a counselor, I have helped entrepreneurs resolve tough personal issues which impact their personal lives, businesses and success.

- Lack or loss of purpose, drive
- Upsets, disappointments, and losses
- Negative patterns
- Not having time for a life
You want to create your own business as an expression of yourself. There's an independence you require and a product or service you love to give. With the right counseling and coaching, growing your business can be immensely rewarding, both for yourself and for your customers and clients.
