How It Works & What You Get Each Quarter

✓ Apply in less than 10 minutes. Our membership-based school enrolls once per quarter.

Stay focused and find new solutions over the long term (but pause or cancel at any time.)

Learn and explore at your own pace with quarterly cycles that adjust to your life. 

1-on-1 Coaching

Every business owner is unique, with your own vision and challenges -- so there is no replacement for actual 1-on-1 help with a knowledgeable guide and sounding board. Twice each quarter, you can attend Office Hours to talk through ideas and customize your curriculum. You also have access to unlimited, email-based coaching anytime. Get clarity on how to move forward, stop wasting time, and get out of your own head. Click here to meet your team and learn more about our background.

Quarterly Courses & Intensives

Each quarter, you can opt in to one asynchronous Course or 3-week Intensive. These comprehensive, multimedia trainings pull expertise from the best creative business owners in the industry. They combine introspection, practical tips, expert guidance, and simple frameworks you can use again and again. Click here to see all of your options for courses & Intensives.

Expert Guidance & Mentorship

Alongside the other key pieces of One Mill School, you’ll have access to an in-depth, unsponsored, peer-reviewed Resource Directory to dive into as you implement your insights. You can connect with a cadre of professionals -- website folks, SEO people, copywriters, etc -- who understand the work you’re doing in One Mill School and have committed to work with members for an affordable rate and clear format. Plus, learn from our experienced Mentors who are leaders in their fields through in-depth case studies, live calls, and in the Community Forum.

High Level Community

Each quarter, we have two live calls (or watch later) with real-world examples, inspiration, and space for all your questions. These sessions are connective, fast-paced, and energizing. You’ll also get 24/7 access to other inspiring, high-level business owners making a living from their creative business in the Community Forum. The space is moderated and guided by the One Mill School team and is a hub for support, community, and collaboration of business owners like you (who are also doing the work!) but without Facebook, drama, or fluff.

What to Expect Each Quarter

We follow a Quarterly (3 month) schedule and each month has a different focus. The cycle gives you a dependable rhythm of learning, collaboration, coaching, project execution, and reflection, with full flexibility to adapt to your schedule. Throughout, you'll have access to the Community Forum and on-demand business coaching via email.

“It was really helpful to do creative visioning on the future of my business. I loved the worksheets, frameworks, and going through the process with other creative small business owners.”


“This program showed me that dreaming big is an essential part of creating tangible goals and that small, micro-actions can have a big impact on achieving those goals.” 


"Emily is so patient and wonderful to work with. She really helps you start where you are, and guides you from there. Thank you for everything! "
