Losing market share

Ripped off by competitors



In jumpstART you will get a complete blueprint on how to be more creative, how to innovate, how to stay relevant.  The foundation of this program is based on how successful artists work and get their most creative ideas.  But you don't need any prior knowledge of art to benefit from all that I will teach you here.  I created a system that is applicable to any business, and any business person, it has worked for me over the years and it will work for you too!


By the end of this program we can guarantee several creative breakthroughs and come up with ideas that are actionable and increase your leadership, revenue, and relevance.  

  • I teach this class in person in big, medium, and small companies for groups of executives, managers and entrepreneurs giving them great results, different ways of thinking and a new approach on how to tackle their creative challenges.  They pay me $10,000 for those programs delivered over one or two days. 

  • This is the first time I am offering an online version.  Why? Because a lot of people like you have asked for my advice, wondering how I built my business and went from zero to seven figures, got to be featured in more than 200 publications ranging from The New York Times to Forbes and continue getting incredible projects and clients around the world.  Creativity is the answer.

  • In this program you will learn all the methods that I apply to my business to continue growing, reinventing and expanding. 

Karina Sokolovsky, former Senior Director, Global Consumer Engagement and Communications, eBay

“Maria was instrumental in the launch of the eBay Art & Design vertical.  Her industry insights, ideas and personal engagement helped us introduce our offering to a new audience of collectors and shoppers.  Always a dynamic trailblazer!”

Michelle Grey, Creative Director of The New York Times TimesTalks and NYT Live Consumer Events

"I have booked Maria in my two previous jobs and in my current one. I always learn something new that is valuable, interesting and applicable.  She is fun, engaging and knows her industry inside-out"

Marina Vranopoulou, Owner, Dio Horia

"Maria is one of the most professional people I’ve worked with. Her ideas were executable immediately and delivered solid financial growth and provided great notoriety for Dio Horia in an accelerated way. We appreciated her attention to detail, creative approach and generosity. She introduced us to great artist and business partners and offered her insight and advice. Overall amazing results"

According to a survey of more than 1,500 Chief Executive Officers from 60 countries and 33 industries worldwide conducted by IBM, successfully navigating an increasing complex world requires CREATIVITY - more than management discipline, integrity or even vision.

The myth that creativity can't be taught and can't be learned is just that: a myth.  I have taught this program to business people in their own companies and I have learned these principles myself and applied them to grow my business from zero to seven figures. This program WORKS! 











Because in the times that we are living, there is no better and more valuable resource than the ability to come up with new ideas that are actionable and keep you and your business relevant. 

You remember all those brick-and-mortar businesses that disappeared with the advent of technology and e-commerce? Do you know how many people have been replaced by machines? They all have ONE thing in common: they were unable to innovate and apply their creativity to their businesses.  In this program you will learn how to keep your creative flow circulating and available to you on demand.

With this program you will be able to:

  • Innovate: Encourage disruptive thinking, diverse approaches and new ideas regardless of their origin.

  • Evaluate: Assess how new ideas adapt to changing customer expectations, business models or monetization opportunities.

  • Create: Engage in rapid experimentation, update your services and offerings, change or adjust your business model, think beyond what’s expected, see trends before they become mainstream so you can benefit from them.

  • Materialize: Deploy new products, services and offers, and engage collaborators and customers in ways you never thought before.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, this is a comprehensive program on creativity applied to business with an entire curriculum that I developed after teaching the same program in person in big, medium and small companies. The program is comprised of four (4) Core Modules and one (1) Bonus Section.  Each Module has between 13 pre-recorded video lessons (this is the longest module) and 5 pre-recorded video lessons (this is the shortest module).  Each lesson within each Module ranges from 15 minutes (the longest) to 3 minutes (the shortest).  The videos are viewable at any time from any device, and they can be paused, fast-forwarded, and re-watched as many times as you'd like, and you will have access to them for six (6) months from the date of purchase.

The total amount of time of all the pre-recorded video lessons is about four (4) hours of content which is split up into individual video lessons that you can watch and re-watch at any time. The Bonus section is an additional five (5) pre-recorded video interviews with artists, each video is approximately between 8 and 10 minutes.  This Bonus Section adds almost one more hour of content to the curriculum of the Core Module. So, if you decide, for example, to go over the whole program in five (5) weeks, including the bonus and exercises, you will need to invest at least one hour of your time a week.  That is excluding the calls. However, you can always go at your own pace and catch up later.

You can join the group calls from anywhere in the world via dial-in or if you prefer, you can also join as a video conference participant if you want to bring your own creative challenge, your ideas, or business dreams as well as the areas where you feel stuck.  I will give you guidance and suggestions on how to get unstuck or how to get to your creative goals by applying the methods that I teach you in the video lessons.  These are dynamic group calls where everyone learns from hearing other participant’s challenges and my suggestions and guidance to you and them.  If you can’t join the call, we will have recordings available for you. 

Creativity is paramount to any businessperson, salesperson, executive, entrepreneur, manager or freelancer because it is the foundation for great ideas.  Creativity has not been taught enough in schools, it is not taught in companies and not fostered at all in certain industries, even though every business depends on creative ideas for its survival.  The past 10 years have seen a massive shift in how businesses operate and those changes demonstrate how people who are creative in their industries and able to innovate and differentiate themselves when putting their best ideas to practice, are the ones who have the highest chance at succeeding, keeping their jobs, growing their businesses, becoming leaders in their industries and staying relevant.
