About This Class

Do you have the hopes of growing your freelance operation from your garage or bedroom into a something more? Well, understanding the options and their implications are the first steps. Nick Sambrato, the founder of Mama’s Sauce, will cook you up a high-level overview of scaling your creative business. Whether you’re an individual freelancer, a mom-and-pop design shop or a small business owner, Nick will help guide you through the decisions and implications around healthy growth.

Diving into three crucial pillars — development, delivery and operations — this course is an exploration of how to grow from the “garage” on sound principles in a way that’s right for you.

By the end of this 35-minute class, you’ll have an understanding of the basic components of a business plan, how they apply to your vision, and most importantly be able to decide if what’s on the other side of leaving the garage is right for you.
