Frequently Asked Questions

There are 12 lessons in the course. See above for detailed week-by-week descriptions. The first lesson will be available Monday, June 28, 2021. Every Monday a new lesson will be released. Log in to your account to access them in your course library. 

You will have lifetime access to all the course materials. As long as the program exists you will have access to it.  You can log in at anytime from your computer, tablet, or phone and complete the lessons at your own pace. 

Groups will be limited to cohorts of 12 artists enrolled in the program. We will meet online via zoom every Wednesday at 6:30pm to 7:30pm starting July 14, 2021. Once registration closes, we will send a group message with a link to the zoom call and a folder to access recorded videos. The group will discuss the week's lesson and have an opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts. It's a great safe space to get honest feedback, accountability, and encouragement. 

We do not offer complete refunds. We do offer a satisfaction guarantee. If you complete all the modules and attend all the meetings for the first 4 weeks of the course and are still not satisfied with the program, we will return 2/3 of your payment. 

Sure! Group coaching has many benefits, but sometimes artists want to work together one-on-one. Kristin offers strategy sessions and personal retreats. Send a message with an inquiry and we will get back to you with pricing and options.

Tracy Kirchmann
Artist, Educator, and Mentor

"Kristin Solomon is a magic-worker. Her gentle guidance has helped me to follow my passion and turn it into a reality. Her approach is unique and thoughtful. When I was feeling lost artistically and burnt out professionally, Kristin showed me how to re-connect with myself and then watch the expansiveness of options open up in front of me. Building a unique business like mine was not easy and it certainly took a lot of time and effort, but every step of the way I felt confident knowing what I was working towards sat on a solid base of planning and intention. I can honestly say I would not be where I am now without Kristin’s guidance, and working with her was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself "

Miss Wondersmith

"Kristin moves with great faith with her mission to use her talent for others. A free spirit and great thinker, destiny brought her to Colored Pencils Art and Culture Council when we needed fresh perspective and life force that can move us forward. It’s not only her knowledge on organizational strategic plan, cross-cultural facilitating skill and her great discipline that she brought but her love of mankind. Her commitment to leave this world a better place made her become one of us. She reminded us to ground firm our root, yet expand our work to make sure that everyone is included."

THIS PROGRAM IS FOR YOU IF...

Want a partner in creativity and success. Our method is unconventional. We have a hands-on relational approach with our clients. We will be your challenger as well as your champion. We will be there for the highs and lows and help you navigate them all with poise and humor.



Are ready to get serious about things you have only ever dreamed about. The first step is on you, you must have the courage to be your most authentic self and put yourself out there and have faith in your own creativity and talent. 



Are willing to put in the thought, time, and money it takes to make it happen. Our process is not the easiest, quickest, and cheapest way, but it is the most sustainable and rewarding. We can coach you through it, but we can't do all the work for you. 

THIS PROGRAM IS NOT FOR YOU IF...

Make excuses... like I don't have time, money, or energy to commit to the process. There are always going to be reasons to stall or self-sabotage your dreams. The most successful people are resourceful and find ways to make it happen.


Do not take constructive criticism. It's important to be able to receive feedback well, not take it personally, and and be willing to make the necessary changes needed to propel you forward. It's all for your benefit.


Think and act small. You're only limited by your own mind. Many people make the mistake of trying to fit into others' ideas of success. Be original. We won't help you fit into a mold, but rather help you create one that works uniquely for you.
