There Are Other Ways


Hello, I’m Fiona 

I believe in living life a little differently: thoughtfully and with intention. Yet I know from my own experience how lonely this can be. 

As a creative business mentor and brand strategist, I help creative business owners get through the difficult, sticky patches in their creative businesses, find clarity, and build momentum.

I’m also a writer, the maker of the There Are Other Ways podcast, and an enthusiast of coffee shops, carrot cake and beeswax candles. 

I’m based in Frome, Somerset, but work with creatives all over the world (ah, the wonders of Skype!)

It was never going to be easy.

But it doesn’t have to be this hard.

Building your own creative business can be one of the most fulfilling, exciting, and wonderful ways of making a living.

It allows us to be creative and express ourselves, build a community of like-minded people, create the freedom, space and flexibility we long for, make a real difference in the world, and, in time, generate a sustainable income.

But it can also be jolly hard (and I speak from experience here).

We all go through tough times.

We can get confused and flooded with self-doubt, unable to make decisions or move forward. We can struggle with knowing what will work, and second guess ourselves at every turn. We can tread water for months, and tie ourselves up in knots trying to figure it all out. 

We can feel overwhelmed, overlooked, frustrated and lonely. Like we are stuck in a deep trench, unable to see a way out.  

 I want to get in that trench with you, and help you find a way out. I want to help you find clarity, confidence and a deep-rooted sense of purpose. 

I do this in three different ways: 

Creative Business Mentoring

For three or six months (or even longer) I’ll get in the trench with you, and support you in any way I can.  Together, we’ll figure things out.

Strategy Sessions

A conversation to help you regain clarity and purpose. For when you feel lost and stuck, and just need a little bit of help to move forward. 


Deep Dive One-On-One Days

A whole day, just us and our laptops, figuring things out and getting stuff done, together. 

I also create content about living life a little differently:

A blog.

A collection of thoughts on living life a little differently, building and running a creative business, and finding joy in the everyday. 

A monthly letter.

Every month I share stories and insights from my own adventures in running a thoughtful, creative business. 

I also include notes on what I’ve been reading, listening to, and taking inspiration from.

A podcast.
