dina grishin

This program is for self-employed or freelance creatives who have lost the joie de vivre. Either work has dried up and you’re wondering which direction to go next, or you’re drowning in the swamp of busy with all the wrong clients and work wondering how the hell to get off the hamster wheel and get your life back. This program will help you press the reset button and get clear on your USP, your mission and your vision so you can feel excited by the road ahead again. 

A 6 month transformational 1-2-1 coaching program to help you get your shit together in life and in your business so you charge what you’re worth, work with clients you love and have that work life fun balance you’ve been craving for.

Career Clarity

If you’re going through a Quarter Life Crisis or considering a career change and want to get clear on your next step, go here

Change Clarity

Career

If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place.

Here’s the biggest problem I see with creatives:

You’re either swamped with client work that doesn’t light your world on fire (and definitely doesn’t pay enough)
OR
Work is going through a fallow period 

Either way you’re questioning your life choices, specifically, your career direction. 
You’re not sure what the next step is:
Should you go on another course to upskill? Will that attract better clients? 
Go back to full-time employment? That feels like the sensible stable route. 
Or screw it all and go work at a bar on a beach?

Basically you don’t see a way out that speaks to you and it’s getting you down.

The problem

what you need is not another job switch, It's a mindset shift...


Imagine having time in the week for your personal creative projects where you can submerge yourself in the creative zone uninterrupted by clients’ work because you’ve set up your business up to work for you, not against you. 

Imagine not being awkward around money. Not making discounts or excuses when you tell clients your (well deserved high) rates, and then just imagine them not flinching and saying yes without hesitation because you’re an evident fit.

Imagine attracting the clients you’ve always dreamt of that share your values, are doing exciting and meaningful work, and treat you with respect.

Imagine waking up and feeling excited about the week ahead because you’re doing what you love, becoming the person you used to compare yourself to and you’re doing work that’s meaningful to you and others

Imagine feeling like you’ve found your purpose and you have complete clarity about your direction in life and business.

The Transformation

I want you to stop looking at all the problems, stop listening to the doubts and stop envisioning all the worst case scenarios, and just for a second, imagine. 

Can

You

Imagine?

The number one mistake I see creatives make is spending money on courses to upskill instead of investing in their personal development. 
Don’t get me wrong, upskilling is good! But when nothing really changes after you’ve got yet another skill or qualification, then it’s time for coaching.

This program coaches YOU at the same time as your creative career AND your business.

A creative skills course will get you more skills but it won’t help you market and package them in a way that’s irresistible to your dream client. 

A business coach may help you form a business plan, but if they don’t work with you on your mindset then you’ll always feel like an imposter. 
A life coach may help you break patterns and limiting beliefs, but if they don’t have experience with career coaching or working with creatives, they won’t help you navigate the creative industry and build a career that matches your creative style.

But if you choose this program and me as your coach you will get all those bases covered. 
We work on your business, life and career and treat them with equal importance all whilst looking at your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health.

The differentiator

— Katie Bauer, artist & photographer

When I went to Dina, I felt like I had no direction at all, so it was difficult to even articulate where I could use the help. She was able to pinpoint things I needed to hear to find my own clarity. 
She helped me understand myself better. Even though I had done so many years of self discovery, journaling, and self help, nothing beats having a one on one conversation with someone who is trained to see what you're not seeing.

You’ll get your portfolio, website, offerings all finally done. Hello accountability!

You’ll work through any sneaky money blocks you may have so you can raise your rates, create sustainable income and clear your fear of success (that’s a legit fear that people don’t even know they have!)

We’ll work on defining your version of success and develop a roadmap to get you there. Is it 4 day working weeks? Is it travelling and working? Is it winning awards or making a difference to causes you’re passionate about?

You get to learn psychology tricks to help you work more effectively. Ciao procrastination!

You will leave with a deep knowledge of how to hone your specific creative process so you don’t get burnt out and you know how to set yourself up for success.

By the end of this program you will:

The results

— Elodie Fromenteau, Fashion Stylist & Creative Director

Coaching has given me a real sense of discipline - Organising myself more efficiently as a freelance stylist has helped my time management considerably and has therefore taken my business to next level. Dina's words were priceless, I really connected with her in the sense that she understood so brilliantly the message that I want to communicate in this world and I am beyond excited for my future - forever grateful.”

what you need is not another job switch, It's a mindset shift...

Start: 90 min - Deep dive intake session 

8 x 60 min sessions following the Clarity & Purpose process and focusing on: Strengths, values, interests, self-leadership, money blocks, productivity, defining your version of success, visibility, your creative process, marketing yourself and more!

End: 90 min - Reflection & Roadmapping the next 90 days

You’ll get more done in these 6 months than you can ever imagine. 
Nothing will overwhelm you because fear is experienced differently when you’ve got a coach. 
You’re not alone, you’ve got me as your guide. 

The Clarity & Purpose process:

6 months of goodness looks like this:

The program

It consists of tried and tested exercises to help you work out your strengths, values and your interests. Once you get clear on those, your options open up, your confidence revives and we work on all the rest.

The Clarity & Purpose Process underpins all of my coaching work.

By now you may be wondering who the hell I am. Glad you asked. 
I’m Dina and I know the creative mind. 

I started off my coaching career helping people navigate the Quarter Life Crisis but then I landed my dream job as Head of Coaching for Mastered. 
Mastered was a 10 month career accelerator program for creative professionals wanting to enter the fashion industry. It taught them everything they needed to know (from finding your aesthetic to how to get an agent and beyond). I coached creatives such as photographers, art directors, designers, brand owners, stylists, hair salon owners and makeup artists from around the world (we had people from 97 different countries enrolled). 
Let me tell you, that was one of the best learning experiences of my life. I hold so many stories from these creatives - how they made it in their country, at their age, with that budget etc - and that means if you don’t think you can do it, I have about a dozen examples of how you can (which I’ll gladly share with you!). 
But I’m not just about fashion. 
I’ve coached plenty of creatives in advertising, tech, beauty, art etc. 

I’m Dina and I’m self-employed too. 
I have big dreams about my career and lifestyle and they don’t include the feast and famine cycle, nor do they include hustling and grinding into my evenings and weekends. 
I’ve had coaching to define my version of success and it looks like this:
Working 3-4 days a week
Having the freedom to take time off when I want 
Having time for my creative outlet
Not worrying about money
Choosing who I work with*

* which is with heart-led, values-driven creatives who also have big dreams

If you want those things too then you’re in the right place.
I’ve done the dirty work for you. 

I’ve inhaled business books, marketing podcasts and programs. I’ve invested in coaches and masterminds (some good, some were a total waste of money). And I’m happy to say that I’ve finally found mentors with ethics and values that matched mine (I had to sift through A LOT of sleazy sneaky salesy people to find my unicorns) and I’ve found systems that actually work. 

So when we work together you can benefit from my research and experience. I’ll make sure we set up your life, career and business in a way that makes you thrive.

About me

You’ve been working as a creative for a while now. This program isn’t for fresh graduates.

You’ve done some personal development work already but you crave some one-on-one attention to expedite your personal growth.

Deep down love what you do, even if you’re a bit burnt out now, you always want to be doing something creative. 

You have big dreams and ideas for what your future life looks like. It’s ok if the dreams feel a bit too big or far away, we’ll get them closer to you! 

You are an action taker. If there’s meaningful homework to do, you’ll do it because you want to grow and get feedback. 

You have causes and projects you really care about and you want to make a difference in this world (in whatever way that is for you).

This is for you if:

what you need is not another job switch, It's a mindset shift...

Let’s fast forward one year, and things are just as they are now. 
Can you afford to spend another year going in circles in your head trying to figure a way out?
Do you really want to risk getting so burnt out that you become completely disillusioned with your future?
So much so that you even consider compromising your dreams and your freedom and getting a full-time job somewhere you don’t care about?

“A healthy man wants a thousand things, a sick man only wants one” — Naval Ravikant

When you’ve invested in your mental, emotional and spiritual health, you feel elated. You feel like you CAN reach your goals, like you CAN take on new challenges. 
But if you don’t look after yourself, if you don’t invest in yourself and keep trying to do it all alone, you will start feeling low and alone. That low mood will stretch and feel unshakable. You’ll start languishing, and from that place, dreams feel unreachable, tasks feel undoable, and then the only way out is to give up. 

Don’t let yourself get there.  
Do something about it now. 

Why now?

Right now, you might be thinking coaching is a luxury you can’t afford, but here’s the thing, you can’t afford not to have coaching. 
The only way we make leaps in our work is when we have an outsider’s perspective. After all...
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." Albert Einstein.
Plus, it’s a business expense, so no excuse really!

You may also think you’re too busy and you don’t have enough time to do anything but client work, but let me tell you, coaching actually saves you time. Having someone hold you accountable means you find the time. Having someone to sound board worries off means you don’t waste precious time worrying. Having a straight-talking coach means that we cut through the BS and we simplify your route to your goals. 

So stop thinking and start booking. A call. With me. Here.

Tilly Kaye, Founder of Zero to Product. 

Before I started working with Dina I was all caught up in stress about what I thought I SHOULD be doing with my work whereas now I'm much happier just enjoying what I AM doing. She's helped me to relax and enjoy my work more, build confidence and visibility among peers and clients. To recognise strengths and put energy there, building on an already good thing. She really helped me get over certain hurdles too, by breaking the tasks down into manageable enjoyable steps and with a real focus on progress not perfection which helped me so much!
