Become Your Client's Secret Weapon

Attract the best clients,

charge what you're worth

& fall in love with your work again

"Secret Weapon paves the way for you to magnificently show up for yourself!"

Michelle Cherian

Graphic Designer

“Secret Weapon starts as a practical manual for everything you need to do to be a superstar service provider - setting up automations, reigning in your schedule and learning how, and when, to say No to projects, but soon we realize that these practices ladder up to a much deeper point - how to uplevel your whole way of being in the game. Secret Weapon paves the way for you to magnificently show up for yourself - and as a result your clients. It’s a must read for anyone ready to love not just their work but also the business that supports that work.“

Hi I'm Gabrielle Chipeur and I spend my days cherry picking the best projects, feeling truly appreciated by my clients and watching my income soar.

All this and more is available to you when you accept your title of Secret Weapon.

If you're a freelancer or creative ready to go to the next level (AKA have a waitlist of eager ideal clients, never compete on price and have your reputation precede you) then you're in the right place.


I can help you shave years off your own meteoric rise to the top by taking firm control of your own business destiny and setting yourself apart from the hired guns we both know you're leagues better than.

What if you got love notes like this from your clients

each and every week?

"She's not only the right person, she's the best person"

"Words cannot express how much I appreciate you"

"I have a secret weapon... feel free to love on her and give her five 5's!"

Besides helping you become the most sought after creative in your market (and getting even bigger results for your clients in the process)

i'll show you how to...

Never

send another proposal where you're competing with a bunch of other designers solely on price

stop

the endless #jobopp and project hunt on Upwork, groups and other designer-for-hire sites

ONLY WORK

with Hell Yes clients, and never feel forced to work with micromanagers because you need the paycheck

charge

up to five figures for each project you work on, without feeling like you have to convince them you're worth it

What if you could stop the constant hustle for more clients?


What if every project was portfolio worthy? And what if your clients felt more like friends than employers?


You'd wake up excited every morning to work on projects you love, while stopping the constant feast and famine cycle.

Readers LOVE secret weapon...

money mindset coach

"Secret Weapon is a must read for all designers! I honestly couldn't stop reading it! The importance of systems was so clearly and elegantly laid out in the book! I love the message that we are our own bottleneck in our business. That is 100% what I believe!"

Rebecca Hill

writer & copy EDITOR

"OMG, your book - its making me think! I absolutely LOVE IT. Seriously this book is gonna make some great waves! It's the book every designer needs."

the truth?

I was tired of making the same mistakes over and over in my freelance business.

Gabrielle Chipeur

I've been a web and graphic designer for 16 years and have owned my company since 2010. 


But in 2016, I was no better off then when I started. In fact, I was even worse - with a huge pile of debt and a list of projects I didn't want to do, for red flag clients I didn't want to work with.

But then I discovered what ACTUALLY works to grow a design business and started doing more of it... and things started changing, real fast.

I went from working with clients I could barely stand, to attracting ones who made my heart sing. I went from wondering where my money went each month to charging up to five figures for each project.

And I also stopped working late nights, early mornings and spare moments to keep up with the constant need for more clients (hello weekends off!)

I'm confident that if I can do it, there's nothing stopping you either.

"It really feels like a genuine conversation with a badass friend who is trying to give you all the tools to succeed"

Dani McGregor

Graphic Designer

"I love how honest you are. I loved the tips and tricks. I also love how you discuss the main issues that service providers deal with and how you conquered them. It really feels like a genuine conversation with a badass friend who is trying to give you all the tools to succeed."

"Secret Weapon is a must-read for designers."

Alex Aanderud

EXECUTIVE COACH

'Secret Weapon' is a must-read for designers. Where books like Selling the Invisible and Crush It! focus on the business of building your business and selling your products, 'Secret Weapon' focuses on maximizing efficiencies and running your business instead of your business running you. Definitely a MUST READ!
