Prepare yourself for a fun-filled journey through all the ways you can create, publish, market, and sell an oracle, tarot, affirmation, or inspiration deck that you create from your original idea. I invite you to join me for The Deck Creator's MasterMind Group.
This program, in it's second session, is the next step after taking Artful Affirmations and Original Oracles and is for those who want to actually earn money selling their decks. We start with a virtual weekend together where we will discuss the following topics:
1. Idea Generation
2. The Power of the Prototype
3. Design and Creation -- this includes testing and prototype revisions, various ways to design and create your deck as a tangible item.
4. Distribution Options
5. Marketing (including crowdfunding and proof of concept)
6. Extensions and Expansions
SPECIAL GUEST INSTRUCTOR: Rachael Caringella (TreeTalkerArt.com) - Creator of The Untamed Truth Oracle Deck & Co-Creator of the Spirit de la Lune Deck, will share a tutorial on how to us Photoshop (or other photo manipulating software) to prepare your original artwork for printing as a deck. She even provides TEMPLATES!!!
Here's how the MasterMind will work:
Virtual Session Dates: November 2 to 4
We will meet on Friday November 2 for a 3 hour session (6PM to 9PM Central) where I meet and greet participants and begin working on the deck ideas. You'll have the night to sleep on your idea (or if you're a night owl like me, the rest of the night to brainstorm, plan, and get ready for the day of deck conversations on Saturday).
On Saturday November 3rd, we will meet at 9AM Central and work for 8 hours with work together sessions, Q&A time, and work alone sessions. There will be several short breaks and a one hour work-optional lunch break. This day will will dive into the process of moving your deck from a personal deck to a full fledged business venture that makes you money. Part planning part action, we will spend the day getting clear on what we want to do with our decks.
On Sunday November 4th, we will meet at 10AM Central and work for 6 hours with a similar layout to Saturday but with different content. The day will be spent on topics around packaging, distribution, and marketing. I'll even walk you through how to make an effective launch plan.
Once we end on November 4th, you'll spend the month of November working on your deck idea and getting it market ready. You'll have my support along the way and be invited to Power Hour calls where you can work with like-energy business owners who are taking action on their businesses.
At the end of November we will have a 2 hour wrap up Q&A for final questions and conversations around your deck and hopefully celebrate the launch and completion of some decks.

Hello Beautiful Creative You!
I'm happy you're here.
I'm Kiala Givehand, a mixed media book artist, creative business strategist, and workshop leader originally from Florida, temporarily living in Northern Georgia (by way of Oakland, California), where I reside with my husband, Damon.
For almost 20 years, I taught English, Language Arts, and Creative Writing at every level, while simultaneously traveling the U.S. delivering workshops and presentations to educators. While I still travel occasionally to work with teachers and writers, I now enjoy working one-on-one and in small groups with students, teachers, artists, writers, and creative entrepreneurs who want to identify their passions so they can embrace their gifts and talents through the empowered expression of their deepest desires. I do this work as a Creative Business Strategist because I love helping others find the thing that fills them with joy.
I've done a lot of things in my short 40+ years on this planet, but I'm most proud of raising my nephew Treavor, and listening to my inner wisdom by doing the things that make me come alive. Constructing handmade books and art journals is one of those things that allow me to feel A L I V E!!! And I'd love to have you join me on this journey. CLICK HERE if you want to see a gallery of some of my art journal pages.
I cherish every single day and treat life as one amazing adventure. I play with paint and watercolor, fold paper into books, write poetry, short fiction, & creative non-fiction, and sometimes I blog. But always, every single day, I journal and do something that I feel is creative. Oh!! And did I mention that I'm the proud owner of a fabulous collection of fountain pens? (I know. Geek alert!)
Join me and let's create something beautiful, TODAY!!
