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.

Great overview of how to organize a creative business!
A wonderful class, highly recommended! The teacher provides useful information in an easy-to-understand and consumable way. I've been listening to these videos while I work, and I plan on re-watching at a later date to take notes.
