(from my other mentoring and creative biz courses)
In this world of being painter ladies who teach and share online, Mati Rose was like Beyoncé to me – such a shining star! So when she offered this course, I jumped at the chance to learn from her experience. At first I was hesitant about the cost of the course since I was starting my biz on a shoestring budget, but I can tell you, it was super worth it. This course was like a catapult for my creative career. I devoured every assignment and interview. If you take this course, definitely clear your schedule because there is so much goodness to absorb. Mati was so generous with everything that she shared, and I met such awesome kindred spirits in the course. There are a lot of e-courses out there and this is the one that has made the biggest impact on my career. It is such a gift to our community. If you do the work, be prepared for your creative biz to take off!“

When I started pursuing a creative path, I didn’t even have a website or business cards. I was struggling to find my voice and really needed a community I could connect with. Daring Adventures in Creative Biz is just the right mix of butt kicking and support. Here are a few of the things I’ve accomplished since taking Mati’s course:
- Landed an ANTHROPOLOGIE LINE!!!
- Created a website
- Featured in Design*Sponge
- Launched two collections
- Completed an artist residency in Hudson, NY
- Had a pop up shop and live painting event at Pottery Barn
- Started The Creative Brunch Series and hosted several maker workshops in my local area
And so much more!
Also started my Daring Adventures in traveling to Italy and Costa Rica soon on art retreats! I’m just getting started and I’m excited for all we will do together!!”
Mati’s DA in Creative Biz class is amazing! It was just what I needed to push me to stretch my wings in my art practice. Mati’s style is so encouraging and helps create a supportive environment where we can be ourselves and feel brave enough to take leaps towards our dreams. Because of her class I’ve started my own workshops, e-course and also have more ideas in the works. Highly recommended!!”

Mati, it is with a heart filled with gratitude that I say…”thank you!” Thank you for being true to yourself so that in turn it empowers others to be true to themselves. You truly lead by example!! It has been an incredible gift to receive so many hard earned pieces of wisdom from you. I have always felt that I could honor where I am at in my creative journey in this class and did not feel any shame about not doing “it” (whatever “it” is) the “correct” way. So much freedom has been modeled, imparted and given…thank you. You are a precious gift to this world and to those of us who call ourselves “creatives.” May your gift of presence continue to shine brightly and bless others as you journey.

Daring Adventures in Creative Biz was such a great experience not only did I get so much insight into what I need to do to pursue my passion I also met a great group of like minded friends. We went through the journey together and celebrated each others accomplishments. Mati is a great mentor and has such a great spirit! She truly cares about each persons goals. I definitely feel like she touches on many questions I had about starting my creative biz.

Mati’s “Daring Adventures in Creative Biz” class helped me focus on reaching my goals through inspiring videos by Mati and guest speakers, goal-setting techniques and accountability. The class size was small enough to allow for specific feedback from classmates and Mati. The uplifting and positive atmosphere of the course, along with the solid content has helped me move in the right direction with my business. It was like having an art business life coach! I’ll be continuing on with the next course. Thanks so much Mati for your inspiration and guidance.

Why do you want to work with me as a creative mentor? Um, because you are AWESOME! My first course with you was Daring Adventures in Abstract Paint in 2016. I’d been struggling for about 15 years to unearth the art I felt I had inside me. But I had this feeling that you could help me break through. I’d been following your work through your Etsy shop, blog, and Instagram and I had bought two of your original paintings (which I still swoon over daily). I could just sense that you were a sweet soul & a kindred spirit. Which you are! With your online course, you made art-making accessible to me. You gave me permission. You opened the door and convinced me to get started. The opportunity to watch you paint, to actually SEE your process, and to hear you speak about it as things were unfolding – what a gift! I also enjoyed the fact that, in your videos, you seemed to work very intuitively, but alongside of that you offered detailed information about specific techniques. Since taking that course, I’ve gone on to explore many of your other offerings – A Field Guide to Painting Birds, A Field Guide to Painting Blooms, and most recently, Daring Adventures in Creative Business. All have been inspiring & empowering, and also encouraging in terms of staying true to my own creative voice. It’s really wonderful to have forever access to these courses and I actually do revisit the videos all the time. They are so rich with information & inspiration! You are so generous with what you share & teach, I just know you will be an amazing mentor. And I’m so excited about chatting one-on-one with you because, hello, I’m an introvert. Thank you for being you, Mati. <3″
I was a bit hesitant to register for Daring Adventures in Creative Business. Was my art good enough? Was this course for me? I’m glad I decided to register. Committing to myself and my work in this way was a fantastic experience. Participating in each of the lessons felt like an investment in myself and my future. Mati was extremely involved in the course and always attentive to questions and comments. The themes of each week built upon each other and hit on the foundations of creative business – goals, marketing, finance. The accompanying Facebook group was fun and supportive and something I will remain active in. Thanks, Mati”

My wife and I have a mindfulness workshop business. It’s going well, but we’re really a lot better at the teaching than the marketing. A friend recommended Mati to help us clarify our marketing strategy. Well, our one-hour session with her was like JET FUEL. By the time she sent us a detailed action plan by email, we knew exactly what we wanted to do and exactly how we were going to do it. So great! She was the perfect combination of encouraging and innovative. She really stretched us, but in ways that we felt excited about. We’d highly recommend her to anyone that’s looking for ways to extend their workshop business – or really any homegrown biz that requires marketing.”
