Work With Me


“Now is the time for guts and guile.”  Elizabeth Taylor


Remember how excited you were when you decided to launch a creative business and make a living from your art?  Such grand plans and dreams!


But what has that dream become?

  • Staring at a blank page, screen or canvas, and feeling utterly empty and paralysed.
  • The resentment you feel because your ‘creative business’ is actually all business and no creativity.
  • The never-ending admin mountain that keeps you tied up all day and too tired to create.
  • The barrage of bullshit marketing advice from a thousand shiny-haired insta-coaches on pool loungers, promising the ONE AND ONLY way to get a ‘six figure life’ – whatever that means.
  • That well-meaning family member telling you to ‘just get a steady real job’ – when the thought of going back to a 9-5 existence makes you nauseous, and feels like a betrayal of everything you’ve worked for.
  • That fear in the pit of your stomach that says you’re kidding yourself. That you’ve wasted years on a business that will never work out. That your work is rubbish, and everyone else has ‘made it’, and you’ll never be recognised.


What if there was someone who could break through all the noise and frustration and show you a simple, shining way forward? No judgement. No gimmicks. Just compassion and common sense.



Introducing the Guts and Guile 6 Month Coaching Program

Giving you the guts to stand by your dreams, take decisive action and believe in your art again…

…and the guile to work smarter – not harder, navigate the nay-sayers, and create a business that works FOR you, not against you.


This is for you if:

  • You’re trying to do everything, and ending up with nothing
  • You’ve stopped believing in yourself and your work
  • You’ve reached peak marketing overload and crave truth and simplicity
  • The word #bossbabe makes you want to flip your desk over
  • You’ve started looking at job sites, and you hate yourself for it


Working with Holli has been one of the best things I could have done for myself and my business. She not only keeps me accountable and motivated, but I have a huge boost in confidence just having her in my corner, and I learn priceless information that gets results. Since working with Holli my mood, productivity and bank account have all skyrocketed and I couldn’t imagine starting any new venture without her guidance and expertise.” 

Elena Guerra, performance coach and dancer


My Coaching Style

My style can be summed up as straight-talking truth bombs with a big side order of warmth and humour. Like a slice of zingy lemon tart with a generous spoonful of fresh cream. Or Miranda Priestley in Minnie Mouse pyjamas!

I want to give you the knowledge and tools you need to take on the world again independently as a thriving artist and businesswoman.

I don’t believe in skirting around challenging issues or overlooking personal flaws that hold us back. We need to have total self awareness and frank ongoing dialogue with ourselves if we want to make lasting changes and avoid making the same mistakes.

I do believe that a healthy, happy mind and body leads to incredible ideas and sustained creative achievements, and we have a responsibility to take charge of our own wellbeing as artists.

I’ve also learnt that there is never a single RIGHT way to do something, especially when it comes to marketing and running a business. Trying to follow every new trend, tip and strategy, or copy what seems to be successful, is a one way street to burnout. We must have the courage to go with our gut and work to our strengths.


“It has been a delight working with Holli Mae. She has offered such valuable perspectives, as well as fresh, innovative ideas to bring my business to the next level. I really value her support and am SO grateful to have Holli in my corner!”

Ophelia Flame, stage fright coach and performer
