Ambitious. Achievable. Essential. Tanja Raaste and Nordic Nomad encourage performers & theatre makers to better understand and develop the day to day skills needed in the industry. From budgeting and self-motivation, to that loved (or loathed) word, “networking”, Tanja’s sessions are time and money well spent! [/testimonial]

I have been advising artists, performers and other small business owners on business matters for over 10 years – if you are stuck on a project, on a budget, on a funding application, or just want some general business guidance, give me a call!

I can help you with

  • Website critique – your website is your shop window, is it as effective as it should be?
  • Strategic planning – do you have a business plan and a route map for where you want to go. If not, how will you get there?
  • Time management – so much to do, so little time. How and what do you prioritise? You cannot do everything.
  • Maximising your income through current clients.  This is so often overlooked!
  • Getting new clients – do you have a plan in place?
  • Marketing – effective methods and techniques.
  • Negotiation – are you letting people push down your prices, or are you yourself paying over the odds?  This is an easy and quick way to improve your bottom line.

Case Studies

  • In one session, a Pilates instructor maximised the efficiency of her website and created a USP for herself and her brand.
  • In one session, we created a strategic plan for a visual artist and identified some residencies to apply for.
  • Over three sessions, we did a full audit of income streams for an arts and crafts company, and created a plan for income generation for the coming year.


Artists & Creatives (performers, dancers, painters, sculptors, photographers…)

  • Ensure you have set up the business side of your practice.
  • Demystify business processes to ensure you are doing the things that need to be done.
  • Get more clients and make more money in a way that feels right for you.
  • Spend more time making your art, less time worrying about money.

Small Businesses (yoga instructors, complementary therapists, nutritionists, entrepreneurs…)

  • Ensure your website is working for you and getting you new clients.
  • Know how to give your clients the VIP experience, and earn more without finding new clients.
  • Pin down and promote your USP (Unique Selling Points) – why do people come to YOU?
  • Clarify your marketing message.
  • Do you have a handle on PR?
  • Having a clear strategy that will get you further, faster.
