What is the Created to Thrive Artist Mentoring Program?

It's a program designed specifically for artists who want to grow spiritually, artistically and in business from a Christian perspective in the context of community.

The program provides a step-by-step roadmap for artists through the five essential areas artists must develop:

  • Cultivating Your Heart & Mind
  • Cultivating Your Art
  • Cultivating Your Brand
  • Cultivating Your Business
  • Cultivating Your Life

Whether you're an experienced artist, just starting out or coming back to your art after a break, Created to Thrive will empower you to confidently and successfully pursue your creative calling.

When you join Created to Thrive you will:

  • Overcome self-sabotage and feelings of inadequacy by learning how to renew your mind according to God’s Word and reset your internal paradigm to one that aligns with God’s Kingdom.

  • Know God’s plan for your life and art so you can confidently pursue your Kingdom assignment without being dominated by doubt and fear.

  • Walk confidently in the marketplace so you can know your life and art is making a real difference in the lives of others.

  • Clearly hear God’s voice so you can respond in faith, not fear, to your Kingdom calling as an artist.

  • Create an easy-to-follow marketing plan for your art business that gets you in front of potential clients so you can focus on creating art.

  • Find clients to buy your artwork for top-dollar and cultivate relationships with them over time that results in sales and referrals.

  • Confidently price your artwork for wholesale and retail sales so that you’re actually making a profit.

  • And much, much more!

"Matt Tommey is teaching me everything from deepening my relationship with God and co-creating WITH Him to marketing, and everything in between. A mighty man of God raising up an Army of Artists to reveal God’s heart and glory to the world. And I’m selling a lot more too! "

Annette E.
Artist Member, Created to Thrive

"One of my things was ‘Is it worth the money?’ and my experience was that it’s priceless! Can’t believe Matt doesn’t charge more. He truly has a heart for artists."

Jan Tetsutani
Artist Member, Created to Thrive

"I just have to say it is the BEST investment I’ve made in my career as an artist! He covers all the bases; business, mindset+spiritual, and creativity. If you are ready to stop making excuses and get to work on stepping fully into the artist God created you to be, you need to go sign up! "

Paulette Insall
Artist Member, Created to Thrive

"I'm a newbie, but I am convinced that this is the most valuable thing I've ever done. Even though it's only been about 3 weeks since I started, with your encouragement, the Lord has been showing me that I AM gifted as an artist, and there is something to work with. I always felt that I couldn't go further with my work, and that I did not flow with creativity. And I admit that there are times when I am still blocked, BUT I just have to listen to Matt Tommey about something, and the Lord brings me back in focus. "

Charmaine Savoie
Artist Member, Created to Thrive

" I have tried several other things that required more money than we really had and I was really hesitant to go to him with yet one more thing that was going to promise big results, create a lot of excitement, and then fizzle because it turned out to not be "that one thing." I have only done this for a month and a half, but I have already gone farther than I had before with anything else. I believe that is because Created to Thrive deals with all of me as an artist: my relationship with God, my art, my business, and even my relationship with my family. "

Dawnita Hill
Artist Member, Created to Thrive

"I didn't know where to start. I had been suffering from guilt because I didn't know how to bring my art before the public and do what the Lord asked me to do. Then I was introduced to Matt Tommey's Mentoring Program and now I am on my way with emotional, creative and business support."

"The monthly fee is the best investment I've ever made. I struggled with whether or not I could afford it before I signed up. I wasn't sure if I could afford it and if it would be worth it. I've been a member now about a year. The benefits from Created To Thrive are so numerous! A community of Christian Artists who will encourage and pray for you, spiritual, and how to marketing wisdom from Matt are just a few of the benefits. My life now is full of breakthroughs and amazing opportunities. I'm so glad I decided to give this group a try."

Deborah Nell
Artist Member, Created to Thrive

"I knew I "couldn't afford it" but it is so much more than I expected! From the beginning I felt that I had found "home". The resources and support available far exceeded what I expected to find. My husband and I are both artists but mostly we have been stuck. Matt Tommey's program and teaching have been just what we needed to begin to move again. "

Mona Miller
Artist Member, Created to Thrive

"I am one of those people who’s been delivered from poverty mentality. I took a leap because I wanted to commit my ways to our Lord. I’m so blessed to be free from fear of not having what I need to be who I’m created to be! He is my provider, and thru this program, I am equipped for the next step. "

Immediately after you join Created to Thrive here on this page, you'll receive a welcome email from [email protected] as well as a couple of emails from our website giving you access to the program resources. Sometimes these go to SPAM, so make sure you look there and in your Promotions or Advertising area (Gmail, Yahoo) if you don't see the emails in your main inbox.

Of course if for some reason you don't see them, just email Mark at [email protected] and we'll get you taken care of ASAP.

Once you're in the members website, there's step-by-step instructions in our Welcome and Pathway to Success Modules. You should start there.

That's a common concern among artists who are starting Created to Thrive, but not to worry!

The program is designed so that you can walk through it at your own pace. We even have a success tracker built in the website so you know right where you are at all times, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Even our weekly live Q&A sessions with Matt are archived, so you never have to miss anything whether you're on vacation or life just gets busy.

You're not alone! That's why we've designed Created to Thrive on a super-easy-to-use website. If you can log in to a website, follow the path we've laid out for you inside and click on a video, you're good!

And even if you get confused, we're here to help! Just email us at [email protected]  and we'll get you all the help you need.

That's the beauty of Created to Thrive! You can have as much personal interaction with other artists as you need! From our members discussion forum to our private Facebook group, monthly Mastermind Group Skype Calls to our Mastermind Weekend (once a year) and Matt's weekly Live Q&A, there's plenty of one-on-one interaction to help support you along your journey.

That's a very common concern, but let's bring this into perspective. $997 is less than the price of a couple of pieces of moderately priced artwork. Do you believe that you could sell just 2 or 3 more pieces of artwork this year after completing the Created to Thrive Mentoring Program? That's absolutely possible and artists are doing it every day inside our community! Are you willing to invest that money in yourself and your development as an artist? If you're willing to invest, we're willing to link arms with you and do everything we can to make this year your breakthrough year.

You see, the things that you invest in are typically the things you value and give focus to in your life. If you really want to see this next year be YOUR breakthrough year, then investing in Created to Thrive is a smart move. 

Hundreds of artists are members and testimony after testimony proves that this program helps you get real results, real fast while being worth every penny and much, much more.

Just for perspective, many "artist mentoring" programs start at over $2000+ a year, don't have near the resources Created to Thrive includes and offers little live interaction with the mentor unless you pay an additional fee. You get everything in our program for just $997/yr.

That can be a common question for folks who've never really invested in themselves before. 

In fact, it really goes back to the question, "What will I get out of this if I do join? What's the benefit? and Does the benefit outweigh the investment."

This for just a moment about what I call "Membership Math". Let's really do the calculations:

A $997 Yearly Membership is literally $2.73/day. Is that worth investing in your calling as an artist?

Also, if you consider the average cost for an original piece of art from an emerging artist is in the $400-$600 range, just think... if you learn 1 thing - JUST ONE THING - in a whole year of mentoring that allows you to sell just 2 more pieces a year, you've more than paid for your membership. That's a no brainer.

We've found that artists in almost every creative medium find incredible value in the teaching and community interaction among members if they give themselves to the process. However, if after doing that and you still don't find the program helpful for your particular situation, you may cancel at any time. We do not offer refunds for monthly memberships. However, we do offer new annual and lifetime memberships a 15-day money-back guarantee after which there will be no refunds. This guarantee does not apply to returning former members or for membership renewals.
