It's Time You Start Valuing Your Own Work + Get Serious About Building Your Design Business.


I've been where you are. People view your design work as just a hobby. Your income ebbs and flows, and you find it impossible to stay afloat. Maybe you’re getting some clients, but you’re still struggling to make a sustainable income, leaving you stuck in a low-profit sinkhole.

Do you know that as a designer, your work is vital to this world?

We are the beauty-bringers, the light-chasers, the ones who put form and color and weight together to support the ideas of others. To do that, you need to start investing in yourself and your growth as a designer.

Finally, this is the opportunity
you’ve been waiting for.


I’m so pleasantly surprised she’s willing to tell you everything that she does to get clients and constantly grow. It’s motivated me to finally get out there and start doing. Lilah is such a doer where as I was stuck too often taking courses and finding “busy work”. If you’ve never hired a coach for your design biz, then you’re missing out on ways to scale.

Lilah Higgins.jpg

Hi! I’m Lilah Higgins, designer, brand coach and founder of The Higgins Creative. I’ve been in your shoes. Prior to running a business that now supports my entire family, I was once a self-taught designer struggling to strategize a way to build a sustainable business.

It wasn’t until I invested in a coach that my business grew dramatically. In two months, I booked my first client. In six months, I made 10x what I had invested. In a year, I earned enough to retire my husband - all before I was 24!

Now, I run a 6-figure brand agency! All because I valued my skill and understood that investing wasn’t a risk. It was a smart business decision.

It’s my belief that every successful business owner needs someone to come alongside them to push them to the next level, and I can be that person for you.

Let me come alongside you and pass down the wisdom I’ve gleaned from running my own profitable design business for 8 years.

But, here’s the best part: unlike most general business coaches, I can guide you through the lens of being a designer, like you, with industry-specific methods and systems. I can speak to the artist that lives within you, to break down mindset blocks, teach you how to value your work (no matter how easy it comes), and come alongside you to create a business that sustains the lifestyle and life-change that you’ve been aching for.

Don’t Just Take My Word For IT...

Lilah was super encouraging and helped me get clarity in regards to pricing and valuing my work and basically figuring out who I’m designing for
— Carrie
She not only understood my brand and brought it to life, she did it without me feeling like I was managing a project. It felt more like I got to go on a fun adventure. She is a diamond in the rough, and joy to work with. Hire her now!
— Dana Malstaff, Boss Mom

“Working with Lilah was a super refreshing experience."  -Marissa

Lilah gave me practical steps to implement my ideas during our first session alone! Then during our second call we discussed what worked and what could improve and she gave me more to do to grow my business.
— Brynne
Working with Lilah was a super refreshing experience. Her project management was spot on and she kept me up to date on our project the whole way through.
— Marissa

So, Are You A Business Owner Or Just A Doodler?

Companies and entrepreneurs are taking bold moves to stand out from their competitors, but what are you doing as a designer to be a cut above the rest?

The first step is valuing your skill enough to take the initiative needed to secure your financial future. So, how do you get there? You invest in yourself and your future. Let me guide you on that path.


Invest in your future.
