How I can help!
Building a business from your creative pursuits can be tough.
You KNOW you are great at the creative part – your music or writing or art.
But not so much at the business side.
You’ve tried searching for the information, the more you search, the more conflicting information you find.
That’s where Applause Genie comes in.
We can help you navigate the business of being creative so you can do what you love ALL THE TIME!
I’ve been on the frontline of the creative industries in both creative and management sectors for the past 30 years.
I have worked as a graphic artist, venue and band manager for some of Queensland’s most iconic venues and artists.
