What's it like to work with us?
Since every client collaboration is different, here are a few folks talking about their experience working with us:
“I highly recommend Toby to anyone looking for help finding direction of the future of their artistic endeavors."
"The way he talked about longevity and sustainability made it easier to compartmentalize actionable steps I can take today. . .and ways to make those moves matter for me in the future as an artist."
"My conversations with Toby made me feel supported and confident in my steps going forward."
"I had previously felt very overwhelmed on how exactly I was going to develop my company, but after speaking with Toby I felt set up for success with specific next steps I was going to take. He is incredibly personable and knowledgeable."
"Our conversation led to new ideas about the future of my work and broadening my reach."
"Toby is not only knowledgeable about the financial nuances in non-profit and for-profit ventures, but as an artist himself, he also knows the artistic community and the struggles we face to find resources to create.”
"He asked lots of questions that were not only for himself but also led me to analyze and think about my goals and work in new contexts."
"He has already widened my perspective as to the potential for growth in the new year and beyond."
"He was considerate and supportive, and very helpful when it came to thinking about things that I can do right now as well as looking ahead five years from now."
"As an artist himself, he totally understands the unique nature and demands of an individual project, and offers concrete, actionable advice in an easy manner to understand.”
"He helped ease the stress that comes with conversations about money and the arts, and made me feel like I could actually secure some funding as a normal every day person out in the world trying to make it as an artist! And that feels huge."
