YOU WERE NOT BORN TO EAT, SLEEP AND STARE AT A SCREEN.

SO PLEASE DON’T SETTLE FOR THAT.

Life is for piping hot cups of coffee and poetry.

For waking up excitedly in the middle of the night to jot down the perfect lyric.

For the stretches of silence that draw in a new melody like a magnet.

Life is for Sunday drive sing-a-longs with the windows down and your hair getting messy.

For learning something new and laughing as you stumble as a beginner.

For standing on stage, your palms thick with sweat but your heart racing with a cocktail of joy and adrenalin.

So why do your days look like nothing like this?

Let me take a wild stab in the dark here…

You slam back cups of coffee to slog through your work day and your to do list (which let’s face it, never gets done).

If you wake up in the middle of the night it’s usually at the hands of anxiety, not great musical ideas.

Stretches of silence (especially those open for creativity) are basically non existent.

Singing in the car, yes. In front of others or with the windows down, not so much.

Even though you’ve had “learn a new language/instrument/skill” on your New Year’s Resolutions for years, you simply don’t have the energy or the motivation.

Performing is either a pipe dream or something you do with weak knees and a sick feeling in your stomach.

 

 

LET’S GET THIS STRAIGHT.

YOU. ARE. NORMAL.

Please breathe out a sigh of relief.

All of this is normal.

I see you, we’ve all been there. Welcome to the club.

Our fear of the unknown is not BFFs with our big dreams.

Our desire to stay comfortable fights back at our longing for vibrancy and adventure.

But we do want to grow and see what we could do if we really went for it - well, until re-runs of the “I’m not good enough” show start playing in our brain anyway.

And we don’t know what to do about that; so we do nothing, stay small and drown our sorrows in ice-cream and Pinot Noir.

BUT THEN YOU LIVe THE SAME DAY ON REPEAT.

AND Never STRETCH YOUR CREATIVE WINGS.

WHAT IF YOU WEREN’T DOOMED TO RECREATE GROUNDHOG DAY (WITHOUT THE DELIGHTFUL BILL MURRAY)?

You can feel more juiced up and artistic in the next 3 months than you did in the last 3 years.

You can manage your time and energy around what is truly important to you (and set boundaries around the rest).

You can learn how to set yourself up for success, combat self sabotage and still have fun with it.

All with a coach who knows exactly how you feel cheering you on from the sidelines and keeping you accountable.

IT IS POSSIBLE FOR YOU (and it doesn’t involve removing your brain entirely).

I've lived your story. I know what being stuck in that procrastination filled, lack lustre, not-good-enough loop feels like and have struggled to bust myself out time and time again.

I’ve managed to feel the fear and make it happen anyway (mostly).

To understand why I was paralysed and help get my brain from “not good enough” to “give it a go”.

I did it to build my business.

I did it to write my book.

I did it to launch a podcast.

And I did to write, record and release music.

AND I’D LOVE TO SHOW YOU HOW.

Going through your coaching had such a transformational effect on me, Kim. All I can do is thank you boundlessly for the passion, heart, and insight that you literally poured into this project and into our lives.

The funny thing is that, although I was quite conscious of some of the ways in which I was changing (my perspectives, habits, mindset, etc) through the videos, exercises, and questions, there was another layer happening that I couldn’t even see until one day I realized that a transfiguration of sorts had literally occurred within me.

It really is incredible to see what dedicated artistic space can do for the fabric of one’s being when given to a course as uniquely extraordinary as this.

This program has marked my life irrevocably (and has also been directional for my continuing work in these areas) and is a memory that i will always hold sacred.

I BET YOU wanna BECOME THE KIND OF PERSON Who

  • Knows who they are, what they want and goes for it.

  • Romances their creative ideas rather than locking them in the linen cupboard.

  • Call themselves a singer/musician/artist without adding "Well, kinda" to the end of the sentence

  • Allows the process of creating to be a joyful rumble rather than a frustrating punch up with self doubt.

    Right?

Then come on in, the water’s fine.

THE MUCH LESS TORTURED ARTIST PROGRAM HAS THIS ON LOCK.

WHY HAVEN’T YOU BEEN ABLE MAKE IT HAPPEN ON YOUR OWN?

Firstly, it’s not your fault. You’re human and self doubt is a pretty huge part of our programming so please don’t beat yourself up.

More often than not we have the best intentions.

We do wholeheartedly want to dig in and do the practice, to create something beautiful and share it with the world but it's the work that's the challenge.

Our brains are hardwired for comfort. To not take risks. To alert us when we’re stepping outside our comfort zone.

And if you don’t know how to laugh that off with an air of grace and confidence, you’ll get thrown around by the hurricane of doubt and terror.

Motivation and passion ebb and flow.

Procrastination seems to be the king of the castle.

The crazy amounts of self doubt that litter your mind seem to make it impossible.

But you CAN navigate your way through this.

I walk you through tools and exercises in this program that will pave the way for brave actions, show you why you think the way you do and help you step into the shiny shoes of your best self. 

Yeah sure Kim, but how do you intend on doing this?

What do I learn exactly?

Fair question champ.

This program isn't for the faint-hearted but it is for those craving more of that excited flutter that comes with getting your hands creatively dirty.

HERE’S THE ADVENTURE YOU’LL GO ON AND WHAT YOU’LL LEARN…

MONTH TWO

  • Going deep into how your thoughts are producing the less-than-ideal results and how to flip that

  • Understanding and taking action to remove the obstacles that are keeping you stuck

  • Learning the best ways to stay committed to your regular creative practice each and every day

  • Reintroducing you to beauty and play

  • A plan to escape the clutches of perfectionism

  • How to stay on track when you’re not feeling “inspired” or “motivated”

MONTH ONE

  • Getting clarity on what a more vibrant, creative, fulfilling life would look and feel like to you.

  • Uncovering what stories from your past are keeping you small and how to untangle yourself from them.

  • Acknowledging where you’re giving away your time and energy and how to reclaim them.

  • Recognising and harnessing your own power and sovereignty.

  • Analysing your habits around procrastination, distraction and sabotage and exploring ways to manage them.

 
 
 

MONTH THREE

  • How to welcome more courage into your life without completely freaking out

  • Letting go of other people's "stories and beliefs" that aren't serving you

  • What to do when self sabotage or the fear of success rears it’s ugly head

  • Uncovering what it would take to reclaim your artistry and how you can make that a reality

  • Recommitting to what lights you up and letting go of what drains your energy.

 

Each week I will be inside our private Facebook group LIVE, giving you that week’s assignment and talking you through whatever came up for you in the previous week.

We’ll also have monthly group coaching calls where you can be coached by me live in real time to start busting through your fears and make progress at light speed.

And the best part?

You'll be in the hot seat with other artists and musicians from around the world helping you out and sharing their discoveries and experiences so you'll never feel alone!

It's hard to make these kind of changes by ourselves but much easier with others.

You'll love having help choosing a project, figuring out how you'll measure your progress and cheerleaders to keep you moving forward when you don't really feel like it.

WHAT HAVE OTHER SINGERS SAID ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE IN THE PROGRAM?

This has been amazing. Nobody wants to talk about the negative voice that we have inside our heads. I am so grateful that you wrote your book and you put this course together.
Working with our minds and it seems sometimes tricking our minds is so important to being able to sing because my mind is definitely not always on my side when I am singing.

It has been great to start un-peeling the years of negative self talk. It feels like my mind has been peeled like an onion, I started and I need to go on.
Thank you for creating a safe place to talk and to share.
— Sunita
This program was incredible. It allowed me to not only get really vulnerable, playful, and intimate with my own art but really have the courage to share it with others - especially with everyone else in there.

This program positively changed the way I view success and the way I view failure. Kim transforms the nitty gritty, frustrating aspects of making art to being fun and inspiring.

This experience is for everyone but especially those who know have it in them, but are just a little reluctant to admit it. Kim, thank you again so much for making this, thank you for getting vulnerable with us and for showing us light and play at the end of the tunnel.
— Lia
QUOTE1.png
Kim is a wise, kind friend, who will walk you through the unknown, to discover what’s holding you back from being the singer/storyteller/communicator you want to be. And then encourages you to draft a blueprint for moving forward.

There is no other program available on the internet (or perhaps anywhere else) like this.
— Greta
QUOTE2.png

Most of us feel so overwhelmed that we don't know how we could possibly fit another thing in.

Our creative side gets shoved to the naughty corner while we prioritise just about everything else because, y'know - reality.

 

BUT Imagine how it would feel to...

  • Let go of more things in your life that drain you.

  • Start feeling like a pro rather than an amateur.

  • Make creativity, space and play a higher priority.

  • Feel like you're actually LIVING rather than existing on a loop.

 

You deserve more dude,

you really do.

Hey, in case you don't know me, here's the run down.

Kimberley Smith, vocal coach at your service.

I've been singing for over 20 years and have had training in classical, musical theatre and contemporary music.

I am a passionate singing geek and love helping singers develop their best voice (without sucking their passion).

After I put my music on the back-burner and prioritised my corporate job for a few years, it has been my mission to get as many musicians out of their own way and pursuing the art that lights them up.

FAQS

 

WHEN DOES THE PROGRAM START AND FINISH?

Enrolments will open on Tuesday 9 July.

The program itself will kick off on Monday 15 July and run for 3 months.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

$449 AUD (or 3 monthly payments of $153).

This equals about $107 USD, 95 or £84 a month

HOW LONG DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THE PROGRAM?

We will keep the content and Facebook group open for an extra month after we officially finish, in case you’d like to rewatch anything or ask any questions as you move forward.

STILL UNSURE BECAUSE..?

I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO COMMIT RIGHT NOW

This is the very first thing we tackle in this program for a reason.

We tend to feel overloaded and overwhelmed, pouring our energy into everything and everyone but ourselves and what matters to us.

Once we figure out why and where you’re leaking energy and why you’re spending time on what doesn’t fuel you, we can make changes that will GIVE YOU BACK YOUR TIME.

And 2 other things we explore that will change your life? Saying no (kindly) and asking for help.

I DON’T HAVE THE MONEY

I get it, money doesn't grow on trees. But just think about this - what are you missing out on because you won't invest in yourself?

It ends up being less than $40 AUD a week (even less in USD, CAD and GBP) and it will change the way you feel about yourself and your music.

What I would've given to be able to move past my crippling self doubt and actually make what lights me up my priority when I was younger!

There's a payment plan option available too so you can pay per month if that helps.



I DON’T KNOW IF I CAN BE “FIXED”

Firstly, you don't need "fixing", as I mentioned earlier, you're 100% normal.

As humans, we're hard-wired to avoid things that are challenging and uncomfortable; and learning new skills, putting yourself out there on stage and making something uniquely yours is tough.

What you DO NEED are ways of processing your fears and changing your viewpoint so you can keep taking steps forward.

And having someone cheering you on and helping you see more clearly is a big part of that.
