TRANSFORM YOUR GRAPHIC DESIGN BIZ FROM STRUGGLING to SUCCESSFUL
Simplify your success, reclaim your sanity, attract your dream clients and turn your struggling graphic design biz into a profitable, purposeful and passionate empire.
Does this ring a bell?
You are wasting time feeling overwhelmed by all the overcomplicated things you supposedly should be doing in your biz.
You resent your design biz
because you’re not making anywhere near enough money (despite working all the hours).
You are stuck accepting nit-picking, low-paying clients that stress you out and make you dread going to your desk every day.
AND SO, LEMME GUESS:
You spend your evenings scrolling through
packed-to-the-digital-rafters-with-other successful-designers social media, muttering to yourself,
THERE THEY ARE:
Bragging about six-figure businesses and five-figure months. But, more than that, they seem to actually know what they’re doing. They’re working with the kinds of clients you’d kill to create for. Their projects are awesome, their lifestyles are insane, and they actually look fulfilled. Not to mention there seems to be a never-ending demand for their services.
AND YOU ARE:
On the verge of breaking up – and giving up on – your business. You’re taking any client that’ll have you (and, spoiler alert, they’re usually the crappy ones), watching your hours get chewed up by endless admin and wondering if you’ve been hit with an invisibility curse, ‘cause you just can’t seem to get your design biz noticed. Put away the tub of Chunky Monkey, lady.
This is your time.
You, too, can reinvent your graphic design biz to start charging more, working less and having WAY more fun with clients that worship your design skills.

Wondering what your design biz could look – and feel – life after bootcamp?
“After being in business for over 10 years, I knew that my business had reached a level that if I didn’t have structure and clarity in place, not only would my business + clients suffer, but I would burn out. I wanted more from my business and myself – but I was stuck in a place and I didn’t know how to move forward.”
“Bootcamp has given me the accountability that I needed to work on my business. Through the different lessons, I was able to define who my target market is, with a clarity that I didn’t have before. I’ve also gained insight into how to run my business from a place where I’m not always stressed out. Now I feel confident that I can grow my business to the next level, without the fear of failure and burnout.”
“I felt like I was ticking along day to day without a direction, clear vision or a proper set of goals and quite frankly a little overwhelmed by the uncertainty of starting up and running my own business!”
“I have a completely refreshed mindset with so much more clarity and vision for my direction. For me, the best part was digging deep and doing a lot of soul searching and realising it doesn’t have to be as over-complicated and scary as I had made owning a business to be. The course is so uplifting and empowering. The information and support from not only Anna but the whole Bootcamp community is invaluable.”

What will Design Biz Bootcamp do for your business?
Don’t take my word for it. Here’s what some past students had to say about the experience.
WHO IS YOUR BOOTCAMP GURU?
Hey, I’m Anna! I am a graphic designer, entrepreneur and in-demand creative mentor that harnesses 20 years of industry experience to enlighten, empower and elevate the businesses of graphic designers on a mission to make their mark (and have a sh*t load of fun doing it).
In addition to being a caffeine-worshipper and avid multi-tasker, I’m also a lady that has grown my career from humble professional beginnings. So humble, in fact, that one might even deem my first job as ‘soul-sucking’.
For ten years, I worked as a Mac monkey “designing” (I uses the term loosely) real estate ads. Craving more – on my terms – I ventured into the business world and built a stationery biz from the ground up.
The equivalent of fun fling – but not my happily ever after – I sold my stationery biz after three years and thought to myself, ‘Hell, go big or go home, right?’
Since I was already home – ah, entrepreneurial life – I poured everything I had into building my design empire, Design With Style, which has since serviced thousands of female entrepreneurs across the globe and brings in a solid six figures year after year.
Of course, as an insatiable Gemini, I had energy to spare, which I invested in simultaneously founding and creating ROOOAR Magazine and the ROOOAR podcast. Designed by female entrepreneurs for female entrepreneurs, my magazine was endorsed by Sir Richard Branson himself … well, that’s what I took it to mean, since it was made available on all Virgin Australia domestic flights! The ROOOAR podcast was downloaded over 10,000 times. After an immense three years, I sold ROOOAR so I could focus on my area of expertise: mentoring designers and working with creative female entrepreneurs from across the globe.
I hustle hard but am also about balance. I believe in profit AND pleasure and I am proud to work just four days a week (on Fridays I wear pink and do whatever the flip I want).
STICK WITH ME AND TOGETHER WE WILL….
Discover how to finally get a constant flow of clients and find your inner creative confidence that has been hiding for so long.
We will put processes in place to bring clients through the door and we will make sure you aren’t underpricing yourself anymore! Together we will demolish your mindset barriers and I will make you accountable every step of the way.
Together we will make shit happen for you and your business.
“I felt comfortable but not confident. I felt like I was sinking in a massive way and was looking for a way to save myself. Quitting is not an option so I had to find something to resurrect myself for the depth of despair.”
“Now I feel like I’m going to smash this out of the park! Sure I have some work to implement things but I’m feeling comfortable AND confident with taking my business and myself to the next level. I would say to anyone, don’t think twice about doing this course. The transformation you will bring to yourself, your business, your home life is all so worth it! Thank you so much Anna for this amazing e-course. It’s changed how I do business and I know.
I’m going places now.”

WHO IS DESIGN BIZ BOOTCAMP FOR?
IF YOU CAN PUT A BIG, POSITIVE YES NEXT TO THE POINTS BELOW, THEN I’D SAY YOU’RE EXACTLY WHO I’D LOVE TO WORK WITH IN DESIGN BIZ BOOTCAMP:
- You’re brand new to your graphic design business & you want to make sure you set yourself up for success from the start.
- You’ve had your graphic design business running for a while, but you’re so overwhelmed and burnt out because you didn’t set things up properly when you started.
- You research and read and write and watch webinars…. but are so paralysed by indecision that you can’t take action on any of it.
- You just wish you had a clear path out of the chaos.
- You feel trapped by your clients because you have set your business up in a way that makes them dependent on you, instead of giving you the freedom that you craved when you quit your job.
- You’re ready to systematically put the building blocks in place so that you can have your own seriously successful design business, rather than slogging it out for demanding, unappreciative clients.
BUT THIS ISN’T RIGHT FOR YOU IF:
- You’re not READY to hit the ground running & Do. The. Work. It’s 100% possible for your business to consistently have $5K, $10, or even $20K months. But I’m not going to lie – you’ve got to put in the work to make it happen.
- If you are looking for an overnight fix! Your results will increase exponentially as you go through the program, but this is not an immediate solution to any urgent cash flow troubles in your business.
- You’re not a graphic OR web designer. I’m sure the perfect training program is out there for you. It’s just not this one.
- You’re wanting me to give you All. The. Answers. There’s no one-size-fits-all guide to building a graphic design business. You’ll still need to sit down & think about what lights you up & how you can apply everything you’re learning to your own needs, wants, passions & lifestyle.
The 3 most common reasons why you might want to resist Design Biz Bootcamp right now
Resistance Reason #1:
“I don’t know if I have time for this. I’m already burnt out.”
Look, I’ve been there too. That feeling where you’re just struggling to keep your head above water sucks, big time. But the problem is that when all you can focus on is surviving, then you don’t have a way to see & create yourself a path out of that problem. You just get stuck there… for waaaay longer than is necessary.
What you need is a life raft. And Design Biz Bootcamp is that life raft for your struggling business.
You don’t need to keep soldiering on through shitty clients & little to no revenue. You can skip all that struggle & jump straight to having a clear vision & an action plan for your business — on that is based on your own, unique vision for your life, NOT on anyone else’s playbook. If you can dedicate just a small amount of time each week to the Bootcamp then, 6 weeks from now, you could have paved yourself a clear path out of the overwhelm so that you never have to go back there again.
Resistance Reason #2:
“I’m not ready. I need to get my sh*t together first.”
This program is purpose-built to help you get your sh*t together. Yes, you can do it alone before you take this course or instead of taking this course. But how long will that take you? Six months? A year? Personally, it took me 10 years. Don’t do that to yourself. It SUCKS. Let me put you on the fast-track to business success & hash this shit out in 6 weeks.
Think about it: in 6 weeks from now, where will you be? You could be slogging it out in your business, still trying to keep your head above water with no clear path to get you out of that mayhem. Or… you could have completely transformed your business and have a proven, methodical process to get you from where you are now to where you want to go (but in a fraction of the time it would normally take you). The choice is yours, my friend.
Resistance Reason #3:
“I’m already struggling to pay my bills.
How can I justify this expense?”
I know what it’s like to slog it out in your business & still struggle to make money.
Come on – WTF, Universe?! This isn’t what we signed up for.
You probably already have an inkling that you can’t figure this all out on your own, otherwise you wouldn’t have made it this far down the page. But it’s still scary to think about throwing money at the sinking ship that is your business.
But what’s the alternative… Keep struggling, just keeping your head above water? Get a job? Those don’t seem real options. The only real option that not only keeps your business doors open, but makes your business grow (like woah) is to get a clear action plan that will make your business dreams come true. This course isn’t an expense. It’s an investment in your future.
Choosing to invest in your business – and yourself – is a big deal. It’s gotta be worth it. I wouldn’t ever offer you something that I’m not positive is going to make a difference in your life and in your biz. It’s just not my thing. I’ve been where you are and I know how even a mild investment can feel knee-knockingly terrifying. That’s why, if you’re even remotely worried Design Biz Bootcamp won’t work for you, I want to make it clear that you’re covered by…
An unbeatable 42-Day Guarantee
Go through the ENTIRE course, do the work & I guarantee that you’ll love the clarity & direction that it brings you. If you don’t, I’ll refund you every single penny.
More than a mere Guarantee, it’s my personal promise. Take a full 42 days and work your way through all the elements of the course. If you don’t love the transformation that Design Biz Bootcamp gives your business, I’ll give you a full refund. For real. All you have to do is email me & attach all your completed work & we’ll take it from there.

You can come back to these lessons, over and over – as much as you need them.
How quickly will I see results?

Do you guarantee that I'll get results?
Your results depend hugely on what you want to achieve, in what timeframe & how much work you’re willing to put in. So, I can’t guarantee your results. Only you can do that. But I do guarantee that you’ll love everything you learn inside Design Biz Bootcamp. You can take a full 42 days and work your way through the ENTIRE course, do all the homework & join the group coaching calls and if you don’t love the transformation that Design Biz Bootcamp gives your business, I’ll give you a full refund.
