Welcome! I am trusting you have happened upon this page for good reason.
Chances are, you know you’re not doing the important stuff. You’ve tried to be consistent but haven’t succeeded and now feel demoralized at how little you’ve achieved. You need direction and action to continue along (or even just get started) on that creative path you long for.
Ok, I get it. You’re a creative thinker but struggle to implement. You’re unsure of your next steps. Perhaps held back by your fears.
You wish you could stay focused and not get distracted. You start on projects with the best of intentions but seldom complete them.
You really want to get RESULTS
Are you tired of the struggle, the procrastination? Tired of feeling unsupported and isolated?
a safe and private setting where you interact daily, reporting on your struggles and accomplishments, getting the SUPPORT OF A CREATIVITY COACH to encourage and guide you every step of the way.
If this sounds like something you have been waiting for, read on!
I am delighted to introduce you to
Artists in Action
online “get it done” accountability groups

Take a look at Artists in Action’s features
The Progress Page is central to Artists in Action’s system of accountability. It helps you build and maintain a daily work habit or creative practice, by providing progress tracking, accountability and structure. Each green check mark represents a group participant who has logged in and reported on their daily progress or problems.
Daily Coaching Questions
Each day you will have a set of coaching questions to answer, a simple but powerful process that will help you overcome obstacles and achieve the clarity of purpose you need to succeed.
End the isolation! With this live chat feature, you can chat with other members of your small group or with the entire site – great for real-time discussions, tip-sharing sessions, group challenges, and more! You can also invite others to a private chat if you wish. Many enjoy planned work chats.
Coach and Peer Support
You will thrive on my coaching support and the encouragement of other group members. You will all help each other persevere and succeed, no matter how big the struggle. You can read other small group member’s responses, and offer supportive comments of your own.

You will find that you’ll look forward to their support and encouragement, as you learn how to take small steps each day. Thats what being part of a close community is all about.
Special areas for you to engage in ongoing discussions either with your individual group or an optional site-wide forum.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a course?
How does the Artist in Action community work?
Every day members log on to our online site to answer questions on the Progress page such as how many minutes they worked that day, what went well, and what was challenging. As your coach, I will personally respond to you with tailored support and guidance. In a group setting members are able to respond to each others comments. When someone leaves a comment, you get a quick email notification that lets you know you have a message waiting for you on the site. It’s a wonderful, interactive way of supporting each other at any time of day or night, no matter where in the world you live.
What are sessions?
A session is a 4 week period that you sign up for. Multiple 4 week sessions are available for purchase at a reduced fee.
What if I'm too busy?
At Artists in Action, we emphasize the importance of working in short bursts. You will learn to manage your time better and make headway on your important long-term projects. Studies have proved that those who set aside just 10-15 minutes per day to achieving their goals, make more progress in the long run than those who wait for big chunks of time.
You may be interested to discover that what drives the lack of time is often not actually being too busy, but procrastination and fear. We tend to stay too busy when we are afraid to tackle, and achieve our biggest dreams. For most people, when they commit to creating regularly and reporting about it daily, they realize whats really important to them and are able to focus on who they are as an artist.
Your participation on the site should be focused and efficient and not ever feel like a burden. You should only need to spend 5-10 minutes per day to interact in the community.
What happens if I miss a few days?
Artists in Action cares about your progress. You will be missed if we see an absence of check marks on your progress log. However we don’t believe in heaping guilt onto our precious members. We encourage you to report in even if you did nothing to get closer to your goals. Your group will be there to cheer you on each day; when it went well, when it was a struggle, and even on the days when you didn’t manage a thing.
Our accountability system is also a great way to discover what keeps holding you back and what your best ways of moving forward are.
Here’s my Question for you
Are you ready to do what’s important?
Are you ready to start taking your art seriously?

Are you ready to step into living the life you were created for?
To explore what gems of talent hide within you?
To share your creativity with the world?
To make a difference?
To get it done?
Now is the time to take action and step into your purpose
I cant tell you how excited I am to keep this streak going. I’ve struggled for so long just to get started. Feel like a big weight has been lifted off my back. Thanks for the encouragement and great ideas!Mark Dunst
