“Gush & Grow is so much more than a talent management agency. They’re a partner in every sense of the word, and a valued one at that. Since we began working together, G&G has helped me quadruple my sponsorship revenue from last year. But most importantly, they’re a trusted advisor, creative sounding board, and have helped me set bigger goals for my brand and myself. I am so grateful to have them in my corner.”

About your instructor

Hi, I’m Austin!

I started Gush & Grow with $20 and at approximately 2AM during a nursing session with my (then)  five-month-old daughter. Since then, our agency has led over a thousand campaigns with top tier talent in the social space. Over the past many years, I’ve had numerous consultations with creators who weren’t quite ready for full-time management but were all asking the same questions…

  • How do I pitch?
  • What should my rate be?
  • How can I work with X brand?
  • What is the brand looking for?
  • How do I interpret this contract?
  • Can I charge [for this or that]?

At our core, our mission at Gush & Grow is helping women WIN. My dream for this course is that it helps as many women as possible do just that—WIN. I can’t wait to help you kickstart—or jumpstart—your partnership growth.

Once you enroll, please drop me a line and say “hi”! I’d love to officially welcome you to the G&G Fam!

Rooting for you!

Questions Before Joining

Q Do you offer payment plans?

A Yes! And we don’t charge extra for payment plans. You can select the monthly plan option at checkout.

Q What’s your refund policy?

A Due to the nature of this digital course I'm unable to offer refunds for any reason. When you checkout you'll have to accept the T&C's, which repeat that there are no refunds. If you're struggling, please send me an email and I'll be sure to help! Read the Terms and Conditions and Fulfillment Policy.

Q Who is the course NOT for?

A While I tried to make this course as robust as possible for all abilities and levels, this course is not for you if you have strong management representation who you are thrilled with and are not looking for other representation or to take the contents of this course in-house.

Q What’s the course format?

A The course is self-paced. This means you can decide when and where you want to work through all of the module content. We use the learning platform called Kajabi. Throughout the course, I will check in to see how you’re doing & offer you opportunities for additional support :).

Q When does the course begin?

A Shortly after you checkout, you’ll be emailed login details for the Kajabi course platform and can begin the modules!

Q I’m so busy! Will I have enough time to finish?

A I feel you! One of the reasons this course is self-paced is so that you can take it on your own timeframe. We made this course as clear, concise, and dense as possible so that you get exactly what you need to propel your business forward without the fluff. You’ll have lifetime access to the main course components so you truly can take all the time you need.

Q What if I get stuck during the course and have questions?

A We want to support you every step of the way! Email and we’ll get you unstuck!

Q Will I have 1:1 time with you?

A If you chose the VIP Package, then yes! You’ll get a 1:1 call with me as well as weeks of email support for that extra personalization, attention, and accountability.

Still on the fence?

I've had decision fatigue before too! Shoot me an email and I'd love to chat it our with you and make sure this is a good fit!
