Business for Creatives

Scale your design business without sacrificing your time

using systems & automation to bottle the muse.

You're already a proven designer.

With the right systems and automation, you can scale your design business without sacrificing your time or the quality of your work.

But at this point...

You’ve hit an income ceiling because you can’t manage more clients.

You’re stuck in a loop of clients who aren’t paying enough and sucking up too much of your time with out-of-scope requests.

You’re exhausted and your energy is drained.

And it’s showing in your work and in the way you are showing up for your client’s projects.

You aren’t meeting your client's expectations (or your own).

You aren’t communicating effectively, making you look and feel like an unprofessional swamp monster.

You want to confidently raise your rates without feeling like an imposter.

The people you’re talking to already balk at your prices, and you don’t know how to find clients who are willing to pay.

You wish you had higher success rates with your clients.

You are capable of producing great work but you don’t have a system for replicating that success.

You need time to focus on bringing in new clients and life outside of work.

You didn’t get into business to be tethered to your desk, but that’s what’s happened and now you want to fix it.

Hey there, I’m Natasha Cozad

I’m a Creative Director with over 20 years of experience and I created Happier Clients to help other designers learn how to scale their business without sacrificing their time.

When I was still a baby designer, I had absolutely no clue what I was doing in business.

I was undercharging and over-committing myself, and I had no idea what the words “out-of-scope” meant or how to enforce any kind of boundaries with my clients.

The freedom I had sought in working for myself had been replaced by a dozen shitty bosses instead of just one.

  • I felt tethered to my desk.
  • My projects were all custom projects or worse, billed by the hour.
  • I’d drop fat invoices in my clients’ laps, and then be shocked when they felt nickeled and dimed.

But my client experience instilled no trust in my abilities, so my time and opinions were undervalued. Even though I was able to produce stellar results, the process was messy and I struggled to communicate effectively.

It’s different now because I have a proven system for organizing and automating my design business.

  • I’m confident in the value I bring to the table because I know precisely what I’m offering, who is going to get the best result out of it, and how I plan to deliver it.
  • I attract dream clients who love to work with me and who are happy to refer me to their networks.
  • I have the freedom and time to live my life without being on call all day, every day.
  • I get to spend massive amounts of time with my family, playing video games, and being crafty.

I created a Signature Service and then stuck to selling it, expanding on it, and turning it into a system that wowed my clients and made them want to share their results (and my name) with their audience.

You can book profitable brand & web design projects like that, too.

You’re worthy of being happier — with your clients, your career, and your life.
