Deep within us, we all have the desire to make something, to do something, to be something uniquely our own – to leave, as it were, our stamp on the world. Sophie Andrews – award-winning business owner, mentor, and author of The Creative Collection – understands what it takes to start and maintain a profitable business in today’s economy.

“Is the stress of running your business killing your creativity? Are you spending more and more time on running the business rather than doing what you love? The Creative Collection is a goldmine of tips and advice for creative entrepreneurs who recognise the importance of profit, but don’t want to lose their passion.” – The Creative Collection, Sophie Andrews

Who I Help



Sophie’s extensive experience working with creative entrepreneurs means that if you are bringing something entirely new to market or doing business in a cutting-edge way, she can help you realise the kind of success that seems so elusive in creative industries.


So many first-time small business owners are surprised that the corporate mindset and the SME world make uneasy bedfellows. If you’re striking out on your own for the first time, Sophie  can provide you with the networking tools and mindset adjustments you need to build a prosperous and independent business in the quickest way possible.




With the right principles and foundations, success is repeatable, but, especially in its growth stages, an organisation must be single-minded. With her trademark no-nonsense approach to organisation-wide success, Sophie  mentors small business teams, helping them to better collaborate and unite their efforts behind a cohesive and purpose-driven vision.


Effective and intelligent leadership is the cornerstone of successful business. If you want to accelerate or remap your journey to a profitable business, that process begins with you. One-on-one sessions with Sophie can make the difference between success and failure in the SME world.


One of Sophie’s workshops is a great way to approach the SME world armed with the tools that drive success in today’s economy. As inspiring as they are instructive, Sophie’s workshops help attendees empower their vision with powerful and proven small business strategies.



If you are in the corporate world and targeting the SME market, you need to understand how they think and how to talk their language. This workshop will help you develop an innovative small business strategy to allow your Company to increase conversion and retention rates.



So many small business owners come from the corporate world. Many of them are surprised at the degree to which their corporate skills and networks are ill suited to the SME world. Whether it’s running a small team, managing expenses in a highly budget-conscious way, or understanding the tricks to intelligent outsourcing, there are a number of skills that would-be entrepreneurs need to learn early on if they are to succeed outside of the corporate world.



Make no mistake: building a successful creative business is a difficult undertaking. The vast majority of creative businesses fail before they can ever get off the ground. Not only are creative markets of nearly every kind awash in competition, the creative or artistic mind is prone to a particular kind of self-sabotage that, if not checked, can make success elusive. To prosper, would-be creative entrepreneurs must learn how to navigate the extremely competitive marketplace.



How To Grow Your Team Successfully

When entrepreneurs start out in business, they spend many long days and nights setting it up, managing the cash flow and trying to grow the business. But it gets to the point where one person cannot do it all. The hard work of all business owners comes at the detriment of their social life, their relationships and their down time and there just never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done. When you find that you are juggling the day to day issues rather than thinking creatively about your business, then it is time to make some changes – it is time for you to consider to grow your team.
