Learning from the expert is one thing, but walking alongside and getting support from other students building their associate programs is priceless! Ask any questions you may have along the way. We'll also celebrate with ya!
Ali will walk through her exact process of figuring out how to price for shoots + weddings, how to figure out how much to pay her associates, and ultimately take the emotions out of pricing. You'll feel really confident with your pricing after seeing this process!
If you keep shooting as many weddings as you have been you'll burn out in a few years. You eventually want to grow a family (or maybe you're already a mompreneur!) but your work/life balance is out of whack.
You can only do so much yourself, you're sick of turning away dream clients cause you're already booked, and you don't know how to scale your biz to the next level cause you're already maxed out.
You think building a team is brilliant, BUT at the same time you have a million and one questions about how to do it the right way. It probably freaks you out a bit - trusting someone to keep your style consistent, what to include in your contract, and how much to pay them.
- better work/life balance
- mid-summer weekend trips or happy hours on Saturdays!
- scaling your biz to the next level (cause more money opens doors to make a bigger impact + more freedom)
- not having to turn away dream brides cause you're already booked
- creative community
- to make an impact and teach other photographers
- and ultimately... a day off while someone shoots a wedding for you
This course + building an associate team is for you if you could relate to any of these! I'll help you get the confidence you need to successfully build an associate team and scale your biz.
We'll cover taxes and insurance, deciding pricing of associate collections and how much to take home vs. how much to pay your associates, how to confidently manage your client workload with the systems so you don't have to work even more than you're working now, and give you the exact steps you need to scale your business, serve more dream clients, and become more financially free.
to hire the right people and be able to trust them

A huge bonus to this course (that won't be offered to all future students - feel special!) is 4 group coaching calls. Because of this, you'll get access to the course starting on July 15th because of the community that is in this together! We'll be doing coaching calls and working through everything together. Content will release each week so it's easily digestible. It doesn't mean you need to finish the course at a specific time, but I want to make sure you feel supported by other photographers on a similar journey and take action on the content you'll learn!

Do I have time to complete this course?
I get it! You're already dealing with having a million tabs open and trying to keep up with your emails on top of all the other biz tasks. I designed this course to serve you, not overwhelm you. My biggest desire is that you see results after taking this course! I say allow for about an hour a week of videos and assignments (+ bonus content) for 5-6 weeks! If you're going to attend the group coaching calls with Ali, add on 30 extra minutes per week.
How long can I access the course?
You'll get lifetime access the course! Ideally, I'd love if you went along with the community week by week and attended coaching calls, but if you'd like you can go at your own pace! You can also go back and refresh your memory if needed. The coaching calls will be recorded and uploaded to the course so you'll get extended access to those as well. Here's the schedule for the coaching calls: July 22 at 8:30pm CST, July 29 at 8:30pm CST, August 6 at 8:30pm CST, and August 12 at 8:30pm CST.
What if I already have associates?
This course is for you! There's not much info online on this topic, so most of us just jump in without having all the info in place. If you want to fill in the missing gaps and see how someone else runs each part of an associate team, this course is for you! I've been doing it for 3 years now and have experienced a lot through trial and error.
I can't afford this!
I get it, spending money on your biz is tough. But think about it...can you afford to not get this course? Even if you're bringing home $1000-$1500 after taxes and expenses per associate wedding, you've paid for this course and then some by booking only ONE associate wedding. I know you'll blow yourself away by how much you scale your biz income by having a team, but remember just one wedding pays for this course and then some. Not to mention, if you book 10 associate weddings from this course, you'll have made $10,000-$15,000. So wild!
Will this course always be open for enrollment?
Nope! This first launch includes a 4 week coaching bonus + I thought it would serve my students best to be community-based to go along with the coaching calls. Therefore, this will only be available for a limited time. Enrollment closes on July 14th at 11:59pm CST. It will be offered again in the future but most likely without the coaching.
Can I get a refund?
With the nature of online content, once you click register for the course you won't be issued a refund.
I'm not booking that many weddings right now. Is this for me?
Refer back to the "I can't afford this!" answer. One wedding pays for this course like 3 times! But I would also say, this program is for you if you want to build an associate team in a different category of your business, like seniors or families. You can hire an associate to run your senior program and scale your business while you focus on other things!
How can I contact you if I have more questions?
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions!
