The monthly membership dedicated to helping graphic designer boss-ladies work on your business instead of just in it.

Because there’s a pandemic going around in the design community and it’s not COVID. It’s lack of consistency working on your business. So while your client work always gets done, your business never grows.

Your design business remains stagnant as your push all the things you want to do in your business to the bottom of the list. 

A month goes by and your folio doesn’t get updated.
Another month goes by and your website updates didn’t get actioned.
Another month goes by and you’re still handling all the things that you should have automated three months ago.

All the while you’re helping your clients grow their business. Who’s helping you grow yours?

Introducing the Designer Boss Ladies Squad

An exclusive virtual membership created and led by moi, Anna Dower (graphic designer boss lady extraordinaire and design biz mentor), this one-of-a-kind group is JUST for female graphic designer entrepreneurs that want to learn how to work smarter and create a business they love without working 24/7.

This Boss Squad is the solution to ditch the overwhelm and actually get shit done in your business.

In this monthly membership, I will be giving you the ideal balance of training, resources, coaching, community and accountability to help you grow your design business.

With a focus on action and consistency, this squad is all about everyday actions we can take that, although small, form the sum of our success.

Each month we’re going to commit to doing one thing to transform our design biz – and your life – when done consistently.

It’s like having a portable business coach at your disposal (not to mention a community of ridiculously cool and empowering boss-ladies as your very own cheerleaders) … without the wallet-bleeding price.

My ultimate vision for you is ….

Go from alone, overwhelmed inaction…

To supported, methodically checking shit off your list and in control.

GROWTH.

This isn’t just a social group, it’s a high-intensity melting pot of educational wisdom and guidance. Monthly masterclasses with weekly prompts and support guarantee that you’ll be learning and growing week after week.

ACCOUNTABILITY.

It isn’t easy working in your business and working ON your business at the same time right? Well together we will make sure you stay on track and hit your goals one step at a time.

FEEDBACK.

You’re running your biz on your own… but that doesn’t mean you have to feel so alone. Brainstorm with your boss ladies and gain invaluable feedback on your ideas and plans.

FOCUS.

Every month we’ll focus on a specific area of your business that you have been putting off for when you have more time. Well the time is now, let’s get it done. No confusing clutter, just one step and one area of your biz at a time.

PERSPECTIVE.

When it’s just you, your Apple Mac and your canine (or feline) co-worker, even the small stuff can feel catastrophic. We’ll help you take a step back and put things in perspective.

SUPPORT.

Running your own biz is one of the hardest things you can do. Seriously. Surround yourself with positive ladies who will have your back no matter what.

Hi I’m Anna, your resident cookie-loving yoda.

Imagine, not having to go at your business alone & tearing your frazzled, unwashed hair out by the roots because you have no idea how you’re working so hard & seemingly getting nowhere. Imagine what a relief it would be to have someone in your corner who has been where you are, who you can bounce ideas off & who will be your own private business cheerleader. Imagine knowing that you’ve got all your ducks in a neat little row to make sure that your clients get the designs they want, love your work & tell all their friends about you.

The best part? Whether you’re just getting started, or you’ve been at it a while, you’ll get the exact tools & strategies that I personally have used in my business to take yours to the next level. These are tried & tested, baby.

Now you can grow – or start – your graphic design business with the tools and strategies that I’ve tested “behind closed doors” in my own business for the past 10+ years.

But more important than any of that is this small but revolutionary fact: I genuinely want you to succeed.

Here’s what you get…

Access to the private membership gang – hosted on Facebook – and led by me, Anna Dower.

Secure membership site with access to the library of classes and learning resources.

A community created by a female graphic designer entrepreneur specifically for female graphic designer entrepreneurs.

A job board to advertise help or apply to be someones help!

Ongoing support, guidance and mentoring.

A place to hang out 24/7, chat about reality TV, crappy clients, business challenges and ask your most pressing questions, like ‘WTF do I do about clients that ask for extra change for free?!’ and ‘This loser just hated on my Instagram pic … what should I say?’ and ‘This tech is kicking my ass. Does anyone know how to do x with y?’ and even, ‘My mother-in-law is in town. Halp.’

Plus each month you get…

Each month a new focused business bundle to up level your business (includes an actionable lesson, templates, cheat sheets, checklists, worksheets etc)

Monthly live Brunch Sessions with Anna including makeover classes & expert guests each month (submit your homepage / latest offer / emails for Anna to makeover in a live class)

Access to the private squad Facebook group
24/7 support on tap from Team and other members. Your community is there with and for you every step of the way.

You’ll get weekly reminders to get that shit done. I will be your loving work wife who makes sure you make time to work on your business, not just in it.

Weekly co-working hours
Team up with your designer boss-lady bff’s and cheer each other on and keep each other accountable during our designated co-working hours.

A library of resources including Sales Funnel Starter Toolkit & Pricing & Packaging Your Design Services plus exclusive invites & discounts only for the squad.

THAT’S LIKE…

Two boxes of wine or

two large pizzas, garlic bread and a soda or

6 coffees or a haircut for your cat or a tissue from Tiffany’s

Together we will create a clear path for success

But really, what it’s worth is…

3,650 days of your life, by saving you ten year’s worth of fumbling around, trying to figure sh*t out by yourself.

Your sanity, by surrounding you with a community of like-minded peeps that can pick you up and dust you off when the going gets tough and the tough (aka you) is tempted to give up.

Your success, by giving you the tools, guidance and resources you need to methodically elevate every element of your biz and brand.

Psst. Before I forget, this is a biz expense, which means it’s tax deductible too!

But aren’t free Facebook groups just as good?

Oh yeah, I know what you’re talking about. Those groups that are filled with
4,000 + members and are packed to the rafters with pleas for help, guidance and not-so-subtle links to their own shiny services?

Yep, they’re a ball. Except, well, when they’re not. Because, you see, more often
than not these kind of groups are moderated by maybe one or two (mysteriously silent) people that you actually respect and want advice from and the other quibillion are just opinionated know-it-alls that want to suss out/sell out/steal from/spy on/cry over the competition.

THE DESIGNER BOSS-LADIES SQUAD AIN’T LIKE THAT.

We are all SO passionate about your success and believe that there’s enough
apple pie to go around – and then some. There’s no competition, no chaos and no mysterious figure heads that accept your request then never talk to you again. I’m there with you and for you every step of the way. Your community is there with and for you every step of the way.

And in addition to the chatting and LOL’ing over the requisite funny cat videos,
you’ll also get ACTUAL practical Masterclasses, lessons, webinars and resources
you can learn from.

Some real talk: Once you become a founding member for $38 AUD PER/MONTH THAT PRICE WILL NEVER INCREASE AS LONG AS YOU REMAIN A MEMBER!

However you need to know that….

The DBL Squad is for you if:

“Everyone here is so supportive of each other. No judgment, lots of encouragement, and always willing to share their advice and experiences. It’s also super helpful to read discussions on navigating situations I have yet to encounter, I feel like this group is helping me gradually build a tool box in my mind, and I feel more equipped that to keep going forward in the design world.”

 
– JUDITH TAN

“Every time I have a question about anything design or business related, I go straight to the Designer Boss Ladies group! Everyone is always so supportive and helpful. I also love the way the group continues to encourage each other in their pricing, and their worth. Thanks Anna”

 
– KIRSTY LEE CODOGNOTTO

“My business and confidence wouldn’t be where they are today if it wasn’t for this group. The ladies in the group are always so helpful whenever I have a n00b question as graphic design isn’t my background or my forte. I think the best part is that there’s so much support for the highs and lows we all go through in business and life in general.”

 
– FELICITY JEFFERY

You feel so safe asking your questions here. There are so many women ready and willing to help you with their knowledge, advice and wisdom. Without judgement or telling you, you should know better. Sometimes it’s as simple as the fact that they have stood in your exact same place and learned it and are more than willing to offer it up to you. I cannot speak highly enough of this group.

 
– SALLY JAQUET

I love this community not only because of Anna and how lovely she is, but also the incredible ladies in here that are always so helpful and supportive. 💖 
I’m proud to be a DBL. .

 
– HOLLY BAUMGARTL KRISTOFF

Anna is amazing, she encourages you to value your work and builds community in her beautiful group. Over the last few years she has helped me refocus my business, up my pricing & chase my dreams.

 
– BIANCA STANTON

The best designer group bar none, with the design-biz genius Anna Dower at the helm. No egos here, just sincere support, open sharing and a lot of fun. Personally, 90% of my design business success has resulted from lessons learned from Anna and this group..

 
– MICHELLE STARK

Anna has done something remarkable with social media. She has created a community of genuine care and sisterhood..

*Please note that your membership does not include the following:
corporate suits, nosey co-workers, arrogant bosses, nine-to-five hell, crappy coffee (unless you like your coffee crappy, in which case, it’s your life, sunshine!) and sneery judgment.

Got questions? Here are the answers…

When does it start?

The DBL Squad kicks off on Monday 1st June, however as soon as you sign up you will get access to a bunch of free resources and the private facebook group so we can get to know each other asap. 

What is a founding member?
A founding member is someone who signed up for the Squad during its very first enrolment. These founding members are clever unicorns because they will get the super-low membership price of $38 p/month for as long as they remain a member. 
How will co-working hours work?
Each week we will have designated co-working hours that you can join. These will be held via ZOOM and will be a combination of GET SHIT DONE and coffee catch-up time with your designer BFF’s.
How quickly will I see results?
That’s completely up to you. The great thing about this program is that if you’re serious about putting it into action, you’ll start seeing results fairly quickly. But you’ve got to do the work. It won’t happen by magic.
What if I fall behind?
That’s cool, don’t stress you will have access to the content as long as you remain a member. 
What if I am in a different time zone?

My vision for the DBL squad is to unite designers globally! There will always be recordings available of the monthly group calls if you cannot make it live and I hope to have various weekly co-working hours eventually so DBL’s from across the world can co-work in their time zone. 

How are the monthly FOCUS bundles delivered?

Once you sign up for the DBL squad you will be sent instructions on how to login to the membership site.

On the 1st of each month a new focus bundle will be released and you can login to work through the content.

Each bundle is consisted of videos, transcripts, tutorials & worksheets.

Can I cancel at anytime?

Yes you can but if you are a founding member and you cancel your membership you will lose your low monthly membership price if you ever want to rejoin. To cancel you must email us – admin@annadower.com
