The Aventive Academy Business Mastermind is an exclusive high-touch experience for freelance graphic designers

You don’t want to keep scrambling for one more logo this month, one more website, one more design project so you can sleep easy at night.

You don’t want to post on social media 5 times a week just to get the same few people (who aren’t even ideal clients!) liking your content.

You technically know how to charge more and raise your rates, but you’re struggling to implement the steps you need to take.

You have tried everything and are still spinning your wheels in place.

You know a clear outside perspective would help you get over this plateau and make more money.

You’re frustrated (and even a little jealous) when you see other designers crushing it online. It feels like they all know some secret that you can’t figure out.

There aren’t many places where graphic designers can speak freely about their creative and business struggles.

That all changes in the Mastermind.

Business-Building Experience

We only have space for 3-5 designers in the mastermind group at a time. Why?

  • Because once mastermind groups get larger than that, they lose their magic. Your personal challenges don’t receive the space and solutions they need.
  • By purposefully keeping our group small, we ensure that you get the 1:1 attention you deserve.
  • At the same time, the group is still big enough that you will be exposed to a diverse array of experiences from your mastermind peers!
  • In addition to solving your own problems, you get to give back and be an active part of helping other designers sign more clients and grow their businesses.
  • You will also receive a private strategy call with Kady to help explode your business into the design powerhouse you know you can become.

Academy Business Mastermind Benefits

You don’t want a cookie-cutter business. So what good is cookie-cutter advice?

You started and grew your entire freelance business from scratch, and now you need something more than the information you can find in yet another book or Instagram post.

You need real-life brains focused on your real-life problems.

You need people in your industry who can see your business from an outside perspective and point out the things you can’t see for yourself.

Synergy is the

secret sauce that makes a good mastermind work.

  • Together with your mastermind peers, you will empower each other, find solutions, gain confidence, and lean on your own wisdom.
  • You will brainstorm. You will encourage. You will crush your goals. You will develop new habits that take you to your next level.
  • And you will learn along the way that you’re already much more of an expert than you give yourself credit for.

Meet your Facilitator

Hi! My name is Kady

Sandel, and I’m the founder of Aventive Academy.

I started out as an underpaid freelance graphic designer who was always scrambling to get one more client and pay my bills for the month.

I remember seeing other designers on Instagram talking about their high-end lifestyles and high-ticket clients, and it frustrated me so much.

I even remember thinking “Wait, I’m just as good of a designer as them! How are they making so much money when I’m not?!”

Around that time, I started attending mastermind groups and they cracked my business wide open. Through masterminding, I was able to see my graphic design business from an outside perspective for the first time. I could clearly perceive why clients didn't see me as an expert -- and more importantly: what I needed to do about it.

In the Aventive Academy Business Mastermind I will walk you through the process of figuring out your real challenges. You will work with the power of the group to brainstorm solutions, move forward, and attract more high-paying clients.
