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) All of these monthly focus bundles stay available all the time!

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?

Want to get sh*t done now? You know, all that stuff that’s important to building your biz but you keep putting off for when you have more time? You need to join my DBL Squad.

This membership is NOT the equivalent of my big ecourse, Design Biz Bootcamp. The DBL Squad is just that: a squad. We help each other become accountable, with focus tasks, masterclasses, co-working and heaps more. The squad will help you tackle the important stuff that gets you seen and wins you clients. It’s perfect for designers who need to do work ON their business (rather than just in it) and build a social network
of like-minded lady bosses.

BUT I AM ALREADY IN A BUNCH OF FACEBOOK GROUPS…

Hey, we all are. But sometimes those groups aren’t quite as focused as you need to be. They might have 4,000+ members – and all of those folks have their own angles. It’s hard to find the juicy sandwich filling among the white bread of pleas for help, rants and not-so-subtle links to other members’ shiny services.

Often you join these groups because they’re moderated by an admin – maybe two if you’re lucky – you actually respect enough to want their advice. But the feed is clogged with a quibillion other people who are just opinionated know-it-alls who want to suss out/sell out/steal from/spy on/cry over the competition.

DBL Squad is not like that. At all.

However you need to know that….

The DBL Squad is NOT for you if:

M

You do not have a sense of humour

M

You are not willing to push out of your
comfort zone to try different ideas

M

You can’t spare a couple hours a month to watch and implement content and training

M

You’re not willing to show up and participate in the community

The DBL Squad is for you if:

N

You know that success takes work

N

You’re open, ready and willing to step up and learn

N

You are keen to block out a couple of hours a month to work on your business and get shit done

N

You are excited to be a part of a beautiful community and support your fellow designer boss-ladies on their journey

WHAT THE SQUAD BOSSES ARE SAYING…

“I never thought I’d be into the co working hours. I was just here for the focus bundles. But I can’t tell you how surprised I am by how much I freaking LOVE working along side other ladies on a Tuesday. 🌞 I seriously look forward to it.
Not to mention the monthly focus is totally the accountability I need to
GET IT DONE 💓”

 

– RENE VENO

“The squad has been awesome! The monthly masterclasses have been a great way to focus my attention on my business in simple attainable ways. I also love the co-working hours. I work with less distractions, more accountability and a great network to bounce questions off of.”

 


– MOE BOYER

“I always knew the thing I’d find hardest about working for myself from home was the lack of co-workers for chats and to bounce ideas off. Now I have a whole squad of them! I ❤️love❤️ our Tuesday co-working hours and the monthly focus bundles help keep me focussed and working on my business as well as in it.”

 

– NELLY TRAVAGLIA

“I love the focus bundles and working on the aspects I have neglected in my business. I like checking in on the co-working when I can because I love hearing what everyone else is up to for the day, plus it’s nice to hear from other designers when you work alone a lot of the time. The squad is also a great place to bounce ideas and questions off the group in both the co working time and the in the feed. All the ladies are really supportive of each other as well. What more could you ask for in a group!”

– AMANDA VEENHUIS

“I really struggle to find the time to work on my business and to learn everything I need to know about marketing myself….it takes SO much time! The squad has given me a monthly focus, the step by step process for each focus AND we have the weekly shared workspace which is a great time to set aside for working ON my business. Thanks Anna….The DBL Squad is totally fabulous!”

 

– DEBBIE WINFIELD

“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

“The DBL squad is straight up AWESOME! It’s sooo much better than other facebook groups that are flooded with so many designers. Your questions get answered, people celebrate your wins, and you build actual friendships! Anna’s monthly focus has been an awesome way to get my arse into gear with Anna’s tips, ideas and course content. Plus she keeps you accountable!

*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?

NOW! As soon as you sign up and pay you’re IN. 

How much do I pay today?

You will pay a pro-rata rate for the month. So you only pay for how much of the month there is left when you sign up. Then you will be billed each month on the 1st. 

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.

What if I want to cancel?

You can cancel anytime after your first initial 6 months.
