Calling all Creatives, dreamers and changemakers
The Creative Doer course & community
Ready to go from dreaming to doing?
The Creative Doer is a powerful year-long dream incubator. It’s a course AND a kick-ass community to go with it.
The course teaches you a practical, step-by-step process to make your creative dream happen.
The community offers the support and resources you need to see your dream all the way through to completion.
Because I know you’re hungry to create, to contribute, to get into the arena. Not just talk and dream and plan, but DO.
Well, you can.
You can learn to show up for yourself and your work, consistently, like it matters, (because it does). You can make it happen.
I’ve created this course and community to show you how, and I am ridiculously passionate about this work.
The tools and teachings I share in The Creative Doer has transformed my life and the lives of hundreds of my students. Hopefully they will transform yours too!
“I am sitting at my desk, early in the morning, writing. And it is thanks to you. I was stuck, but now I’m not. The Creative Doer is a powerful course – it is clear, beautiful, and the content is packed with profound wisdom.”
Maria Mankler. Sweden
I know you’re busy, love. There’s the job and the kids and the friends and dinner needs to be made and you should probably work out more and the house doesn’t exactly clean itself. And oh, the world around us seems to be on fire. And then there’s Instagram. And Netflix. And …
I know. And you try to shoehorn your dream in, somewhere. We strive and struggle and you know what? We miss out on so much of the magic this way.
There’s a creative power we can tap into when we’re relaxed and filled to the brim. There’s a synchronicity that comes into play when we are aligned with our work, inside and out.
You know this, right? You know how it feels when your creative juices are flowing and you’re doing the stuff you’re meant to do. That joy. That deep sense of meaning, being so grateful you’re about to overflow, being truly, fully you. You light up the world that way.
All that from committing to your heart’s work? Yes. All that and more. You know this. That’s what the longing you feel is all about.
In The Creative Doer course & community, you’ll learn simple practices that will fill you up to the brim and allow you to overflow – and that overflow will spill into your work in a way that is as effortless as it is powerful.
We’ll devote ourselves to the art of overflowing.
And then we’ll see what happens when we create from that space. (Hint: some pretty radical stuff.)
“I would go as far as saying that The Creative Doer is the best course I have ever done. I love the depth of the course and this pairing with the practical aspects is so powerful. The course is helping change my thinking both on the big picture dream but also on the tangible day to day reality. I love this powerful dynamic and the way in which you are guiding us through it.”
Michelle McCartan, UK
“This course has been nothing short of life changing for me. Instead of the familiar feeling of dread when starting something new (or even thinking about starting something new), I actually feel excited, prepared and fully engaged. I have never ever had a plan quite like this one and it feels so good! The action of breaking my project up into bite sized pieces has allowed me to see where I am going for the very first time in my life. I have a map to help guide me to my destination. I feel as thought I can achieve what I have set out for myself. It is a revelation!”
Candi Giacchetti, UK
Former Creative Doer students have written books, launched blogs, podcasts and businesses, made their first sales on Etsy, changed careers, changed lives, started painting again and so much more.
What kind of program is this?
It’s part online course, part creative incubator. Prepare to change.
How does it work?
Simple. You log in to our beautiful online community and access the course and all the resources from wherever you are. You move through the lessons at your own pace, with plenty of support along the way.
When you join, you get one year’s access to The Creative Doer Community, where creative women from all over the world gather to connect, support each other and share resources. I’m in there and so is my facilitators. And every month, for as long as you want and need to, you can partake in live Q&A calls and get individual guidance.
That’s the best thing about this community (if you ask me!): it kicks you into action, but it also provides solid long-term support. I know from my own experience that the true challenge of creative work is not to get going, but to keep going. So I won’t leave you hanging.
You’ll learn how to:
- Get clear on what your true dream is, and map out a sustainable, doable path from here to there.
- Claim the time and space you need to make it happen.
- Tap the power of co-creating with your dream instead of trying to push and force things into being.
- Learn how to fuel yourself and your work in a way that will change your life.
- Rely on structure and flow instead of will power.
- Share your work safely and successfully.
Join 700+ students and go from dreaming to doing this year.
“The Creative Doer has changed me, fundamentally. It has helped me stay the course not just in my creative work but in my whole life. I’ve learned to think long-term about my creative work, to handle fear and to acknowledge all the things I do instead of judging or criticizing myself. I’ve learned to be kind to myself.
Another thing I love is how open Anna is with herself and her own process – she walks her talk and that makes me trust her as a teacher. This course is an absolutely indispensible tool for every creative soul. If you have a dream, if you feel like yet another year has passed and you haven’t made it happen, take this course!
Anna Winberg Sääf, Sweden
Who is it for?
Any woman who is hungry to make her dream happen. Really, all that’s required is a longing in your heart and a willingness to do the work. Whether you are stuck in dreaming or have been at it for a while, you’ll find support, aha-moments, useful tools and reliable nourishment here.
Who is it NOT for?
Well, if you’re looking for quick fixes, The Creative Doer is not for you. Probably not if you think using the word “energy” is too airy-fairy either.
How does IT All work? Is it a course or a community or what?
Both! When you sign up, you get immediate access to The Creative Doer Community. Inside the community, you’ll find The Creative Doer course. But you’ll also find heaps of other super-helpful resources.
- Every week we offer co-working sessions where we meet up online and get some serious work done together!
- Every month, we do live Q&A calls. You can attend live or you can listen to the recording afterwards.
- Every month, we also offer bonus lectures on relevant topics such as audience building, creating offers, social media, slow marketing etc.
- Twice a year, we gather for a virtual retreat, where we spend a few focused days refilling our cups and making real progress in our work.
- When you have a question or want quick feedback, you can post in the forum and I’ll be there to respond along with my facilitators. The forum is also where you connect with the other amazing women who are on the same path as you.
Is the course self-paced or Do we follow a schedule?
The course is self-paced. No drips, delays or scheduling constraints. You do one lesson a day, one lesson a week or one per month – I encourage you to commit to a pace that works for you.
How much time will I need to spend on the course work?
The purpose is to get you going on YOUR OWN creative work, so I’ve purposely kept the course work slim and simple. Expect to spend one to two hours on each lesson.
Is the community on Facebook?
Nope. Facebook is built to distract you, I want you FOCUSED and ready to get some work done. Our community is … complete with it’s own app so that you can stay engaged whatever way suits you.
I’m not great with computers, will I manage the tech stuff?
You need to remember your log in info, create a profile in our community and download files to your computer. That’s about as difficult as it will get here. We provide you with instructions whenever needed, and should you still run into trouble, we’re here to help.
What’s the difference between the Creative Doer book and the online course?
The course content is based on the teachings in my book, The Creative Doer. The difference is that in the book you get the what, in the course you get the how – you get the process and the tools. You get to go deep with these teachings and learn how to live them. When you’ve gone through the course, they won’t be theoretic concepts anymore but your new way of life.
You also get the community, extensive support and bonus teachings for a whole year, and that’s priceless.
What if I don’t want to participate in Q&A calls or interact with other students?
You can absolutely join and go through the course content all on your own, if you prefer that. And instead of attending live on lectures and live calls, you can listen to the recordings. You’ll learn plenty this way as well. But I do encourage all my students to take part in the community. First of all, that’s how you’ll get the most bang for your buck. More importantly though, I believe in women coming together to support each other to do our work in the world, that’s why I created this community and I want to share this powerful resource with you.
How long do I have access to the course and community?
You have one year’s access. That’s about the time that most of our Doers need to complete their projects. If you still want to stick around after that – and we’d love you to! – you can subscribe on a monthly basis.
How is tHe creative Doer different from other creativity courses out there?
Well, according to many of my students, ”there’s nothing like it out there” 🙂 But here’s what I find sets The Creative Doer apart: The strong focus on doing both the inside and the outside work. I won’t just teach you some tips and tricks and then send you on your way, because I know that unless you deal with what drives your striving or what keeps you stuck, pretty quickly you’ll find yourself striving and stuck again.
We also offer a level of ongoing support that you will rarely find in a regular online course. The community is like an incubator where you can grow and flourish in a safe and supportive environment. We’re there for you, all the way.
Also, I have an intersectional feminist approach to this work. Where we come from, how we’re raised, our gender (and how we identify), our finances, the colour of our skin – all these things affect us when we step into our work and share it in the world. Anyone who says otherwise is leaving out an important part of the story. Knowledge is power. We’ll use that power to grow beyond whatever limitations are keeping us back.

“I can’t begin to express how grateful I am for this amazing, life-changing course! It is simple to follow and the content is life-altering. Anna speaks to the heart and asks “What do you want most?” and then walks us through whatever might stand in the way … fear, overwhelm, deep-rooted limiting beliefs.
I am making my creative work a priority and I am learning that everything else will fall into a natural, organic place. Showing up for my work first has somehow magically kept me energized when doing work for others! I did not expect that at all! I’ve had huge unexpected breakthroughs about fear, and I’m learning that anything that is good for ME & my energy is good for my business 🙂 I feel both calmed and empowered as I continue forward doing my heart’s work.”
Hillary Rain, usa
“When I started the course, I had very little time. My days revolved around my kids’ schedules and taking care of family, I was often stressed and never found the time to just stop and do something for myself. I had no energy for creative work.
But then, a couple of lessons in, I started to say no. I said no to everything, to family visiting, to activities. I started doing yoga! And now I keep a schedule for my creative work on the wall, next to our family planner. I have managed to make a realistic plan and I have energy to do my work!
I know I will revisit the lessons over and over, to learn more, listen deeper, get to know myself better. I have started living the lessons; live an active, creative life.”
Louise Tränk, sweden
“This course is so unique, with such an unusual level of depth available within it. Truly, there is nothing like it out there. I have moved through the course at a glacial pace not to reach the end too quickly! I have gained so much clarity. My creative work no longer feels like something I must conquer; now it feels like a companion, and a piece of life that I am in contact with: nourishing it and being nourished by it.”
Marie Pierre Hasne, USA
“This course is so much more than I could have hoped for! I love how clear and specific all the content is and how you manage to pinpoint all of our issues. As the years has gone by, I’ve had to become more and more practical in my everyday life, I feel that I have been suffocating my soul. My rational mind has talked me out of so many enjoyable (time wasting) pleasures like painting, drawing, photograpy, writing … time wasting because nothing practical was to come out of it. (I thought!). Now, as I go through the lessons, I can slowly start walking my own path again. Thanks to this course, my creative self will never again have to lose the battle with my rational mind.”
Aneta sandhu, UK
“I hope it feels good to know you have changed the world with your little course.”
sadie rose casey, Usa
“Since I began the course, many things have changed for me – I’ve been able to negotiate more space to dedicate to my work, and I’ve made my first few sales through my Etsy shop! I’ve gained more confidence in my ability to follow my heart’s work despite objections and expectations. I still struggle with fear and frustration sometimes, but I’m learning the tools to quiet them and re-connect with myself. I recommend this course as a calm space to grow without the pressure and noise of more traditional ‘business’ or ‘find your purpose’ courses. I know it will serve as a solid foundation for my path ahead.”
Jennifer Cockcroft, UK
“I love how it guided me through my jumble of half-formed ideas to create a coherent and workable plan. I’m suddenly experiencing all this movement in my creative life. It’s magical!”
Grace van Atkins, UK
“Oh my, how grateful I am for this course! I have been a photographer for a long time and it is going well but it has never felt really good, you know. Like hell yeah! I wanted to pour more soul in it, but there was this vague mist around the how and why etc. The Creative Doer gave me clarity about what it is that I want my work to be. And I love it! This is my dream job. This is my vision. I finally have it!
The course helped me so much that I completely went for it – and today I launched my new website! Haven’t even gotten around to the last lesson yet, because all of a sudden work started streaming in and I am busier than ever – I even hired an assistant for this wedding-season!”
Mariet mons, netherlands
I’m Anna Lovind. Writer, editor and creativity teacher.
I’ve helped thousands of creatives to get going and keep going on their dream projects, whether it is writing a book or starting their own business. I’m also a mother of two, a happy introvert, and a fierce believer in the power of creative women supporting each other to make shit happen. Teaching The Creative Doer is my favourite part of my work.
Want to know the two most important things I’ve learned from two decades of creative work?
- We can’t have it all. Let’s drop that cumbersome ambition once and for all. But we can have what’s most important to us. And we can have it without sacrificing our peace of mind (in fact, if we sacrifice our peace of mind, we can’t have it). I know that for sure.
- The level of creative fulfilment and success I enjoy stands in direct proportion to the amount of ease and flow I can allow into my life and my work. Relaxation, not striving, is the secret passway. Kindness, not pushing, opens the door.
Make no mistake, discipline is needed here too. Moving your dream from idea and vision into shape and form takes committed work. But it’s your true work, your heart’s work, and done the right way, it will energize you rather than drain you. Realizing that changed everything for me.
From there I’ve created a life in which my creative expression has top priority. I’ve built a successful business doing work I love. I write, I create, I mentor other creatives, and I make a living doing it.
And in the midst of it all, there are children to raise, homes to take care of, health issues, financial challenges, love and loss and the whole glorious mess of our everyday lives.
Let’s face it, life is not neat and tidy. We all have our stories and challenges, and building a successful creative life means taking this into account. It means making it all work together, in a way that feels good, kind and spacious.
I’m thrilled to invite you to take this journey with me.
