SWEAT EQUITY CREATIVE
When we met we found that our skillsets were extremely complimentary. Our businesses flourished and we found our peers were turning to us for advice and mentorship. So we launched Sweat Equity Creative. Sweat Equity Creative specializes in creative solutions for building or rebranding your small business. Our encompassing message for vanlife is 'empowerment', we follow this value with Sweat Equity by offering businesses and brands a platform to succeed rather than guaranteed members or clients.
We offer specialized platforms to fill the gaps in overall business objective as fellow entrepreneurs. We run small businesses, we are entrepeneurs, we get you! We mentor our clients on how to use the platforms we create for them to achieve their own very unique and individual goals. From a tear down full interior redevelopment of a gym space to bring in a new market of members to a self rebranding of a film photographer breaking into the digital market, we love sharing skills with our clients and empowering them with tools to achieve their goals!
We offer ‘ride along’ photography packages where clients can send products to photograph as we travel allowing them a great way to get location shoots without the cost of travelling with a full team. Items can stay on board long term for an ongoing variety in photography content.
SELF DEFENSE WORKSHOPS
Along our travels we also run self defense workshops. We usually aim our workshops towards women or LGBTQ communities and we also work with companies who want to host workshops for their staff members. Again our message is empowerment. Our world can be a dangerous place sometimes and unfortunately no one gets through life without a physical altercation at some point.
Our workshops are designed to not only prepare people for a potential encounter but to also empower them into not ever having a “victims mentality”. The two hour workshops host a series of technical, conceptual and psychological defense tactics to defuse, avoid and evade a dangerous aggressor. We travel with our Jiu Jitsu mats which allows us to set up these workshops in yoga studios, businesses and even our favourite in beautiful parks.
Contact us to organise your own workshop.
Together we love travelling and exploring, we get bored of one place quickly but everybody needs a space to call home - it just seemed right to have a home we could take everywhere with us. That would also allow us to reach farther with our own businesses. The vanlife provides us with a constant source of inspiration, a freedom that feeds creativity, a valuable connection to our clients at a grass roots hands on level and provides up with an endless resource of epic backdrops for social media content creation!
We hope to bring our message of empowerment to you.
