THIS CLASS IS FOR YOU IF:
You're ready to stop treading water on your creative ideas and dive into the unknown, take imperfect action and create forward movement in the direction of your dreams.
As a creative entrepreneur with big dreams about what you want to create in the world, there's always a new edge to explore. You and I both know that it's exploring (and going beyond) those edges that allows you to make progress towards the life, business and difference you most want to create, not to mention feeling creatively fulfilled. So whether you've been holding back because you've been afraid to be more seen; you're in analysis paralysis; you're afraid of getting it wrong or changing direction; you have so many ideas you don't know where to start, or you just haven't had the right community around you, this class is for you.
Over the last five years of being in business, if there's one thing I've excelled at, it's the willingness to dive in, take imperfect action and tweak as I go. That said, like all creative entrepreneurs, I sometimes still find myself feeling stuck or holding back. There is always a new edge to move towards, a more powerful place to step into or more visibility to get comfortable with. The mind can play all sorts of tricks to prevent us from making progress.
In this class, I'll share with you the very best of what I've learned over the last five years about how to effectively keep moving forward on your ideas. But what you'll get from me is just one part of the equation. The other part is about being surrounded by a supportive group of like-minded people and the magic that comes from being in close daily contact with other creatives. I'm constantly amazed at the magic that's created through new connections and the cross-pollination of ideas.
This class is your full permission slip to play, explore, experiment and see where it all leads. If you're ready to join me, I'm ready to welcome you in and gently nudge you to take mini-leaps (or massive ones, if you prefer) in the direction you're most called to go. I'll be there to guide, encourage and support you every step of the way.
Love and courage,

This class is designed to help you in the way you most need. So at the start of the class, you declare and share your intentions. Is there a big idea you want to get started on by taking small steps over the four weeks? Do you want to use the class to play with and explore different forms of expression and content that you've been shying away from? Whatever the edge you want to explore is, this class is here to help you do that.
Throughout the class, I'll be encouraging you to go live in the Facebook Group to "show and tell". Whilst not obligatory, this is your opportunity to take to the stage and share more about your work. This is supposed to be fun (and challenging) so we can play around with this together and enjoy the process. It's all about pushing our edges, sharing our work and sparking new ideas for yourself others.
*Participants in the last class noted that they felt so safe in the group that they went ahead with their first ever Facebook Lives.
Every day, Monday - Friday throughout the class, you'll get access to a new bitesize video designed especially to educate, motivate and encourage you on your own journey to creating your own wildly unique life and business. These videos will take in some of the very best of what I've learned over the last five years of building my own business. We'll explore themes like fear and courage, patterns that hold you back, trusting moment to moment guidance and much more. Each day will also include an optional 'activity' in the form of a question to explore for yourself to further aid your learning and progress. You'll have lifetime access to this material.
When you join this class, you get access to a private Facebook group where you can share your work, fears, struggles, wins and anything else that comes up for you during our time together. Use this space to check in daily, ask questions of me and others and get all the support you need. I'll be on hand as often as possible to provide support, encouragement and coaching. It's a wildly safe and supportive space created just for you.
Twice a week we'll meet together online via Zoom. This time isn't for me to "teach" you anything, but rather an opportunity for you to share what you're working on, set goals and create accountability for yourself, and to openly talk about anything that's coming up for you during the process. These sessions will be recorded, so if you're unable to join one or more of the sessions live, you can sit back, relax and catch up at a time that suits you. Calls are on Mondays and Thursdays at 7pm UK time, starting October 2nd.)
*My classes are so much about community and connection. Over and over again people tell me that this is one of the things they value most about joining my classes. You are guaranteed to be amongst wonderful people.
How much time will I need to dedicate to this class?
The time commitment is totally up to you. The daily videos will be short (around 5 minutes) and you don't have to watch them each day if you don't have time. Remember, you get lifetime access to those materials. Aside from that, there are the weekly Zoom calls and any time that you want to spend engaging in the Facebook Group. It's totally flexible to fit in with your life. And because you get continued access to the Facebook Group, you can carry on the momentum even after the class ends.
What if I change my mind? Can I get a refund?
I'm not able to offer refunds for this class.
Is a payment plan available?
Due to the way I'm currently able to accept online payments for my classes, I'm afraid I'm not able to offer payment plans at this time.
I have a question I can't find an answer to on this page. What should I do?
Please send an email to email@example.com. You'll receive a reply within 48 hours.
What if I can't make one or more of the group video calls?
Not a problem. The video calls will be recorded so if you can't make one or more of the sessions you'll be able to watch the recordings at a later time to suit you. However, to get maximum benefit from the class, I highly recommend that you join at least one of the calls each week, if you can.
Can I take this class if I'm not in the UK?
Although live (taking place over a set time period), the entire course takes place online so it doesn't matter where in the world you live, so long as you have a good internet connection to access all the materials and attend the Zoom calls.
What's Zoom? I've never used it before.
Think of Zoom like a better quality, more user friendly version of Skype. Using Zoom from your computer or smart phone is easy and full details will be provided.
I don't have a Facebook account to join the private group. Does it matter?
Apart from the Zoom calls, all interaction will be via the private Facebook Group, so you'll need an account for this class. If you don't normally use Facebook, you can always create an account just for this class and delete it after the class ends.
Before joining The Creative Edge, I'd tried various step-by-step, goal-orientated impersonal short online courses. They made big promises but lacked soul and connection. I wanted a feeling of 'being in it together'; shared experience with likeminded souls; inspiration, encouragement, and camaraderie; a sense of moving forward with my ideas; a welcoming, non-judgemental space in which to explore my fears and blocks.
The authentic open space that Leah held, and the rest of the group contributed to, meant that everything was welcomed wholeheartedly. There was no sense of having to wear a mask/putting on a brave face/needing to be or feel a certain way to take part. It was as comfortable to explore the dark as the light side of our creative natures, and the range of feelings and thoughts that come with each. I immediately felt 'at home' with the group, meaning nothing needed to be held back. It's both refreshing and powerful to have this space to simply 'be' and feel accepted in - especially in a world where we often have to hide so much of our selves.
Big mountainous-looking problems became manageable (and even fun) molehills; there was a general reorientation from big, outwardly impressive acts to small, fulfilling, enjoyable steps; and a greater sense of ease when talking openly about true failings and difficulties, as well as celebrating successes.

Through the shared wisdom, unconditional encouragement and support offered in The Creative Edge, I was able to allow a little more of me to be visible and left feeling a little more peaceful, a little more aware and more open to what is possible for me. I have finally released my grip on the need and drive to know "the how". I truly felt valued, appreciated and relevant.
Being able to connect, share, be vulnerable and speak my truth without fear of judgement was a new and welcome experience for me. Being able to listen back to group calls and receiving the daily videos was of BIG value to me.
Thank you for being you. I LOVED seeing you, having a direct line to the wisdom you share in your blogs and your insights that came through 'live' - just being able to connect to your energy was an added bonus. I truly believe you are the 'real deal' - authentic, honest and raw and all this bound together with a huge giving, loving and open heart. Sharing space with you has truly been a privilege. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'd tried being creatively motivated on my own, but it's always better in a group and having just finished another one of Leah's group classes, I knew I loved the kind of spaces she creates.
Through The Creative Edge I gained more insight into who I am and what I expect/experience in life and with my own projects. The daily videos were great. I loved that I was able to watch them at my own pace and that even now I can go back and read what I wrote, or watch the videos again when I'm feeling like I need the inspiration.
Leah, you are a wonderful coach and I'm so thankful every day for randomly stumbling upon your website. Your vulnerability allows you an edge in coaching that allows those in your classes to feel connection.
Jessica Brant | Singer, Songwriter & Pianist | USA
My decision to join the The Creative Edge was purely heart-led. I do a lot of work on my own and wanted to explore ways of doing things differently, including sharing my ideas with groups of people, rather than keeping them to myself! I loved the connection created with the other group members both in the calls and in the Facebook Group. Leah - I love your coaching style, thank you for creating this safe space for me and others to show up this way!
