About Your Ladders

Your Ladders is an online school built especially for artists to empower them with the skills they need, beyond their craft, to navigate their creative path. The goal of Your Ladders is to help artists build ladders over the obstacles in the way of their career, their company, or their dream of producing work. Julie Hennrikus created this school to combine her fierce arts advocacy with her love of teaching. 

Julie is available for speaking, consulting and workshops on a variety of topics.

Let me introduce myself

I have worked in arts administration for over thirty years, and have taught classes in arts administration for over ten. In my teaching career, one of the emails I get most often is "thank you for teaching me how to use a spreadsheet", or "I used a SWOT analysis yesterday, and thought of you!". My job has been to encourage artists that they can do it, and then give them the tools to get it done.

I believe in the power of the arts, and the importance of artists, and look forward to creating classes to help you succeed.

I am also a published mystery author, and understand the challenges and the joy of being creative.

Frequently Asked Questions

I want to teach you the business skills you need to move forward in your career. The lessons and exercises will let you build these skills so they serve you. I won't give you a cut and paste class. You are too creative, and too unique, for that to work.

Yes. I am experimenting with this as I develop new classes, but right now I'm on a "Netflix" aka binge model.

You have as long as you need! Once you have signed up for a class, you have access to that class. You can retake the class again and again if you'd like. I do ask that you don't share your login with anyone else. But know that you'll have access to any new materials or changes I make in the class over time.

It depends on the class. My goal is for you to be satisfied with the class you're taking, so please contact me with questions.
