The Art of Saying No

Using the word NO to build your business

Learning how to say NO to potential business, clients, family, friends and even yourself will help you build a stronger and more successful creative business.

This course is a great companion to the Creative Process, Branding and Pricing courses in knowing who you are as a business owner, where you're going, and how to get there.

Saying no to potential work and clients seems like a backwards way to grow your business, we know! But in this course we'll get into how valuable it truly is and how to use it in your favor to better target your ideal clients, create more time in your work day, only get the work you want, and stay sane through all of it.

We will also explore the delicate and necessary art of "spin" aka the best ways to say no.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
Prep school is designed to allow you to design your own curriculum so you can work at your own pace. Every semester we release successive courses to help you move your creative business forward.

With that in mind, courses are released at the beginning of every Fall or Spring semester, but you can register, start and finish any released course at your own pace.

During the launch semester for each set of new classes, we will be offering extra perks to students who not only sign up during launch but complete their coursework within that semester.
How long do I have access to the course?
All Prep School courses are available for lifetime access! We understand that life happens and you may not always be in a place to take full advantage of a course when you first sign up. Work through your class on the first day, come back months later for a refresher... either way, all class materials will be here for you.

In addition, once you register for a course, you'll have access to the private Facebook group and school-wide live streams!
Is this course eligible for launch semester perks?
No, only the most recent semester's classes are eligible for launch semester perks. Check out the Semester IV classes (you can filter for them on the main course page) to see which classes are eligible!
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 10 days and we will give you a full refund.
