It's time to take struggle off the table in your creative business!

Artists, makers, dreamers, creatives: listen up.

You’ve been throwing things at the wall and seeing what sticks when it comes to moving the needle in your business, but nothing seems to be working.

You’re hungry for the tools and accountability to break free from the mental and emotional barriers that keep you from building a business that empowers you to live the life you want.

You’re striving to build confidence in your offerings and book every inquiry that lands in your inbox, but something’s missing and you can’t quite put your finger on it.

You want to develop multiple streams of passive income so you’ll never be devastated and bankrupted by something completely out of your control (like a global pandemic). 

You feel invisible and striving to be seen.













































And if there’s one thing I’m absolutely certain about, it’s this:

you didn’t start your business from the ground up just to struggle day after day, year after year.

After building my business from a modest side gig to a half-million dollar empire, I’ve put in the work, made the investments in my own education, and taken the chances to live life on my own terms. 

Here's what I've learned:

What you do today to take your business to the next level (even if it's just one small step!) can manifest in a HUGE way ten years from now. 

The alternative? You can choose to carry on along the same bumpy road this year, only to end up in the same exact place you’ve always been. And that, my friend, would be a tragedy. You’ve got too much to offer the world to keep playing it safe.

You CAN have it all.

All of that being said, here’s the best part:

You can WORK hard & PLAY harder.

You can take a yearly sabbatical without fear.

You can splurge on fancy massages and elegant adventures around the world.

You can make space for intuition to guide your next big move.

You can enjoy your loved ones without the nagging feeling of unread emails in your inbox.

You can invest time into self care to show up better for those around you.

Struggling artists are one pivot away from thriving artists.

At the end of the day, community is what’s at the core of Self Made. 

This is who we are:

who are committed to overcoming our fears to live and speak in our truth, unwilling to settle for an ordinary life. We strive to live our very best life without apologies.

We are creatives...

who hold space to tap into their divine creativity. We believe in sustainability and strive to support ethical businesses. We believe in healing ourselves from a society that’s steeped in negativity every day.

We are makers...

who are committed to expansion, vulnerability, and strong boundaries. We believe in infinite abundance for ourselves, others, and the planet.

We are artists...

Does this sound familiar?

You’re striving to grow your creative business, but you don’t know where to start.

You’re ready to take your business to the next level and break through your current income barrier by booking MORE of the clients you dream about. 

You want to form lifelong bonds with other driven, passionate, powerful creatives. You crave the radical accountability of a team of like minded business owners.

Struggling

I will never forget what it was like to be a schoolteacher. The struggle was real. 

As noble a profession as it is, there were a thousand different mental blocks that stifled me and my full potential day in, day out.

The windowless basement office comes to mind first.

Knowing that my salary would barely break $60,000 a year, maximum, no matter how many years of experience I put under my belt. No matter how many conferences I attended to better myself as an educator, no matter how many stellar performance reviews I could’ve received; my peak earning potential was decided long ago, by someone else much further up the food chain, who didn’t believe teachers deserved to earn much more than a modest living wage. But that’s a rant for another day.

It was in that dark office in the school basement, lit by cold fluorescent bulbs where I realized I was completely DONE living my Plan B life. Teaching? Plan B. Windowless offices? Plan B. Not earning the money I knew I was worth? Plan B (to the thousandth degree).

A personal self made story from D’Arcy

BEYOND FEAR LIES VICTORY.

So I left teaching behind. 

Was I scared? Hell yes, I was scared. And I made space for fear. I felt it, embraced it, and then let go. Once you choose to take fear of the table, there’s a whole world of potential and possibility ahead. And it’s SUCH a gorgeous feeling.

After that pivotal moment in my office, I changed my career. I played full out. I was braver than I’d ever been. I had nothing more to lose after the lost years I had already experienced living my Plan B. I invested over $30,000 IN ONE YEAR going to marketing seminars, taking business courses, investing in online sales training, and learning everything I could about running a successful business.

If 2020 has taught me anything, it’s this: we are being called to shake things up. To abandon comfort. To get out of isolation. To move beyond fear despite the circumstances. It’s time to abandon the battle with your business. Being Self Made means taking STRUGGLE off the table. And this is what I want for you.

Once you choose to take fear of the table, there’s a whole world of potential and possibility ahead.

It's an understatement to say D'Arcy changed my business. In truth, what she changed was my approach to business and in a bigger sense, how my business integrates with my personal life. She helped me see and understand where major blocks were and how I could work through them, all the while being incredibly patient, supportive, and also a bit of a kick in the ass :) She's a hard reality check with a heaping side of motivation and encouragement! The amount of heart she puts into each and every one of her students is apparent and she is so giving of her time, knowledge and gifts. The education I received from her in the past 6 months far exceeds everything I've learned in the past 6 years from conferences, workshops and courses combined. Working with D'Arcy is not just an investment in your business - it is an investment in yourself and a step towards finally living the life you've always dreamed of.

Everything D’Arcy delivers has the added benefit of changing your mindset so that you can leverage what you learn time and time again. She will light the fire you need to pursue your dreams and give you the tools you need to succeed! She and her courses are on a level of their own, far outweighing the value I’ve received from other courses or coaching/mentoring that I’ve invested in in the past.

There is zero “fluff” in D’Arcy’s programs and she respects everyone enough to be 100% honest and upfront because her main goal is to help you achieve the success you want as quickly as possible. She has an incredible mind for business and pours everything she has into others and knows how to turn struggle into success. She can break complicated business plans into smaller, realistic goals that cover every aspect of your business and beyond (self care anyone?). I am convinced that you cannot get support like this anywhere!

"She will light the fire you need to pursue your dreams and give you the tools you need to succeed!"

When group coaching began, I didn't have a clear marketing plan in place at all. D'Arcy opened my eyes to so many different strategies around connecting with my current and future clients. I now have more ideas than ever and have implemented so many of these into my business plan. It's exciting to think about new ways to reach people and how to serve them well.

Group coaching has been like the wake up call I needed for my business, it's not just a case of learning from the best and having marketing strategies to implement, but actually making me fall in love with my business again and take a look at it with fresh eyes. It's been inspiring partnering up with other amazing creatives and I know that the best is yet to come. We are already attracting and therefore booking clients that match our values and I've not even finished all the work yet!

D'Arcy's group coaching program has supported me by the abundance of education that helped me guide my business decisions and also the overwhelming support I've received from other members and D'Arcy. Having a close knit group of other people who have really similar goals and aspirations as you, who can be 100% honest, has been one of the best parts of this program. I have a handful of people who are now close friends who I can call or text at any hour of the day and get REAL, honest feedback and support from.

"I have a handful of people who are now close friends."

My work has turned a corner and everyone is beginning to take notice. It is very exciting to see months of hard work starting to pay off. Beyond this, I've been working hard with the group to get my booking process & the copy on my website polished, and have created an email system for any couple that inquires. I've seen success in the changes that I've made with each step bringing me closer to where I want to be.

"I've seen success in the changes that I've made with each step bringing me closer to where I want to be"

D'Arcy gave me the support and group accountability I needed when hosting my workshop. I was able to connect with a larger group of creatives, bounce ideas off everyone and stick to my schedule to get things done. I have been able to see beyond what I offer as a photographer and see that I have the ability to teach and coach. Her suite of courses are always there to guide me if I need extra help and get clear on marketing.

"D'Arcy gave me the support and group accountability I needed"

– natalie holland

I have noticed a shift in my mindset towards my business and clarity with where I want to take it. After teaching in person cheeseboard workshops for years, I have finally been BRAVE enough to create my first online course that launches next week! I am creating my dream editorials with dream photographers and I am actually getting paid to style photography workshops and wedding day flatlays for some photographers I have admired for years!

01

A: We are saying au revoir to Ninja Bootcamp and pivoting to Self Made. Why? Inspired by tumultuous times, we wanted to bring you a refreshed program that’s chock full of what you loved about Bootcamp for a longer period of time (at an even better price).

Q: What about Ninja Bootcamp? How is Self Made different?

02

A: We understand everyone has busy schedules, so it’s more than fine if you miss the training. Each one will be recorded if you can’t make it live. Play it back when you can!

Q: When are the live trainings? What if I can’t make it?

03

A: Community is at the core of Self Made. We believe it’s harder to have sustainable, long-term success without having someone in your corner. Self Made will connect you with like-minded creative business bosses who are in a similar place in their journey as you are. Bond over your shared questions, goals, and celebrate your wins together. This program is limited to just 60 people, and from there, we’ll divide our cohort in half for an intimate small group environment for maximum accountability and business breakthroughs.

Q: Will I still feel like I’m part of a community?

04

A: Yes! So much of being a creative business is adapting to an ever-changing environment with new marketing strategies, algorithms, and more. The Self Made community is designed to provide consistent support, mentorship, and value, no matter how long you’re part of it.

Q: If I join Self Made for a second year, will I get new content and new experiences?
