Income is a tool to find meaning in your work

The course makes you master the system that give you professional freedom and financial independence.

Why do only a few creative professionals have the work of their dreams?

Some parts of your work are meaningful, but not nearly enough.

You work way too much and really crave to be more with friends, your family and have alone-time.

Worst of all, you do not earn enough to be able to pay your basic expenses.

People do not value your contribution enough to pay you reasonably.

You are considering taking on a new job (as you have done several times earlier) that is not in the creative industry, just to get you back on your feet.

You are mad at yourself for not being the responsible grown-up that brings home the bacon. You insist on doing this thing that supposedly makes you happy, but does not make you content because it keeps you poor.

Every once in a while, you dream about work that makes your life more meaningful and with a broader purpose.

Then you think about your life and that you need income – regularly, and then you suppress your dream, and do nothing.

Sometimes you even make a plan for a change. You assume you would need to have extra education, and then you shudder at the thought of starting at the bottom and climb the ladder – again.

Then, on some occasions, you meet or hear about someone that has the same competence as you that seems to have been able to cross over, have an accomplished career and do well economically.

When you look at those that make a difference AND a living, they do not seem to struggle – they seem unaffected. They do really challenging work, but land on their feet – and still hang out with friends.

Make your work worth doing

The Five-week course Work Worth Doing will guide you towards what you enjoy that has a broader purpose, and that gives you autonomy. It also comprises a system that lessens the burden of always worrying about money. To get professional freedom, you have to be on your way to becoming financially independent; to gain profit from what you have invested. Gaining more work autonomy is a prerequisite to the freedom of being wealthy.

Gain professional autonomy and financial independence

What you’ll get in “Work Worth Doing”

You will learn to set up your ideal work with what you like to do, what you are good at, what people need, and will pay for. You will calculate your life’s hourly rate, how to increase it to amass money to fund a life where you can follow your passion and mission.

Visualisation

It is fun to learn, create and communicate new ways of working with visual literacy to learn, create and communicate.

Creative story process

You make and convey the story of your work with a narrative structure with sections and checkpoints that doubles as a creative process.

Gamification

It is fun to innovate work making a ‘game’ so you ‘play’ work using gamification techniques and applied improvisation.

Learning material

The course has summaries of all modules, work tasks, consideration points, exercises and worksheets for all lessons.

I am a self-taught professional with a preference for lifelong learning. I have changed my career five times, but just lately have I got what I call fair recompense for my work.

Having had to study and create my solution to his problem of either not having significant or sustainable work, I can now offer you a philosophy, mindset and compass to steer you into more meaningful work that is also maintainable.

Ascending brain

Get your mind set

I have had a similar career to what you experience right now, but I did not have a course to teach me how to have a creative profession with the income I felt I deserved. The major obstacle was my mindset: my lack of interest in money matters. I offer you this course so that you may embrace income as a tool to find meaning in your work. I hope you will change your mindset and change your life.
