Everything you need is here!

Are you tired of the noise and the BS and the sameness of the Internet? Welcome. You're in exactly the right place, and the right company.

The Creative Rebel Academy is where rebels gather, support each other, and learn together. Where rebellion thrives and creatives, self-starters, and business owners learn to be better at what they do and truer to who they are.

Choose where you want to start your rebel journey.

 

1. The Academy.

 

It is the ultimate 2-month experience for creative rebels! Filled with creative lessons, rebel curations and guides, community support, and more! It's like giving CPR to your brand/business by bringing the creativity back into it.

 
 
 
 

2. The blog.

Reality checks are a kick in the butt for fellow rebels who have lost perspective. We all need those.

I've always been a bit of a rebel and never quite fit in with the "normal" people (or maybe that's just because I'm socially awkward). So I'd love to join a community of online entrepreneurs that aren't just regurgitating the same stuff as everyone else.

Being a creative rebel can sometimes be scary, hard and somewhat lonely. But when we find people driven by passions similar to our own, everything becomes easier. To connect with others that are rebellious too makes us stronger and braver, and it's a big source of joy to create alongside others! That's why I wanted to join the rebel community. :)

Rebelling out on my own path and making my own game is super exciting and fun, but is equally lonely & stressful. Even though Facebook and Instagram are awesome places for creatives, it lacks the feeling of a community and belongingness. I haven't "made it" yet, but I'm willing to grind my ass off and make shit happen. And I believe the Rebel Community is full of such driven individuals, with whom I can discuss, collaborate and form a real friendship.

To meet other creative rebels so we can encourage one another, spark ideas, and take action that will make positive changes in the world!
