The Essentials is a 15-week online course designed by Abbey Kyhl to take your business to a totally new level!


  • Do you ever feel overwhelmed in your business?
  • Is your business not growing at the rate that you want it to?
  • Are you struggling to be productive and profitable?
  • Do you struggle finding not just the right clients, but clients at all?
  • Do you ever feel like you need a better system to manage your time?
  • Do you ever feel frustrated by your workflow and the time things take to get done?
  • Are you missing out on time with your family and the people you love?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I know The Essentials will help you. The Essentials is for creative entrepreneurs who are “on the verge”. Those who know that they can be successful in their businesses if they just had a system and direction to follow. They are willing to work hard and do what it takes to be successful, they just need help in putting together the fundamental elements of running a profitable business.


Step-By-Step Course to Help You Accomplish Business Tasks In A Thought Out Manner

With The Essentials, I have taken all the topics and issues that you are facing and need to have a strategic plan on, and put it into a step-by-step course that you can work through alongside the other students. This method makes each step manageable, reasonable, and attainable. As we build upon the steps you will get closer and closer to putting together all the elements of being successful.Strategic System to Speed Up Success And Completion

Strategic System to Speed Up Success And Completion

By working alongside myself and the other students, you are going to save yourself hours and hours of frustration and obstacles. I have done all the back end work for you, all you have to do is implement my system in your business and start to move forward. By trusting in me and my experience, you will be able to propel your business forward and bypass so many of the problems that creative entrepreneurs face.

Built In Accountability To Keep You On Course

Each week different parts of the course will be released, along with homework and actionable items to keep you on track. One of the biggest obstacles, I have encountered in running your own business, is the difficulty of staying on task. With The Essentials, I will help you learn to be accountable and keep you on the path to success.

Tools To Teach You To Integrate Self-Motivation In the Future

By learning to keep myself accountable, I opened the door to accomplish more than I had ever dreamed. I am going to teach you all my tips and tricks to generate and sustain self-motivation moving forward so you can avoid burnout and grow your business in the way you want to.

Realistic Attainable Goals

Reasonable tasks in reasonable time is one of my favorite methods. Through The Essentials, you will be given work you can handle, goals you can reach, and milestones you can measure. It won't be an overnight, easy process but it also won't be unachievable. I promise it will elevate you in a way you hadn't planned. I truly believe everyone can be successful and that everyone has what it takes and I am going to do everything I can to make sure you can do that as well.

Actions To Help Avoid Burnout

Being overwhelmed and frustrated is one of the quickest roads to burnout. Having a system that you can be successful at will help eliminate that burnout. From my task management system, to the way I set up my schedule, I will help you get on the right track to feeling empowered and successful instead of feeling like giving up.

Time Management & Organization

I believe that we are all in business for the people we love. So how can we love that business if all it does is take us away from our people. I have worked hard to develop a system to show you how I took back my life and my time and now work when my people don’t need me. Having the best of both worlds is what keeps me going further and further with my goals and I am excited to share all of that with you.

Graduation Bonuses

Once you complete, The Essentials, I will share with you some additional bonuses!!! So there is incentives in completing!


The Essentials Workbox

Many of my favorite vendors have come together to bring you an amazing workbox of bonus materials to even further your success! You will love all these extras!

As each step is unveiled, you will be able to access it in a private student community and read through the material, watch informative videos, ask questions, read the answer archive when it is convenient for you.

Multi-Media Formats

Through guidebooks, videos, worksheets, and actionable tasks, there will be multiple ways for you to learn and grow through the course.

Hey there! I am Abbey.I started in business a decade ago when I opened my own photography studio, AK Studio & Design. I was just like so many others out there. I struggled to figure out how to run a profitable, effective business that made me happy and wasn’t a burden on my family.

Have you ever felt that way? Do you stay up long after everyone else has gone to bed? Do you entertain your kids with technology so you can sneak work in? I have been there and I know how that makes us feel as both business owners and parents and it isn’t good.

We all started these businesses to be a BENEFIT to our families, right? But it’s really easy for that dream to get lost in the details of doing the work. It took a lot of hard work but I finally figured it all out and grew my business from a one-woman hustle to a thriving team. I was able to put all my business degree skills to the ultimate test.

And now with my team at Seven Summers Creative we are helping even more of you do that exact thing!

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
There are two answers to that question. The Essentials course is available to begin anytime, but there are a few times a year when we kick-start it and I am more actively involved. So you can choose if you want to start right now, or if you want to wait until one of those kick off times!
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. And the best part of that is as things are updated with changing times and technology, you get access to all of those changes!
Do I get access to everything all at once?
In order to ensure your success, the course will be unveiled in a timely manner through the steps. Giving you all the information at once would be overwhelming and undoubtedly lead to frustration. I have spent countless hours laying everything out to be accomplishable and manageable, so it will be rolled out as we move from step to step.
Can I learn at my own speed?
Yes, and sort of. I have found that the best way to learn is to have a course and a deadline. You will be able to go back and re-visit steps of the course, but hope that you will make it your goal to keep up with the rest of the students.
What if I have questions along the way?
WEEKLY Q&A - You will be able to ask me any questions you have in our weekly Q&A live webinars. These will generally last between 1-2 hours, so there will be plenty of time to ask questions. ANSWER ARCHIVES - Any questions that I receive will be added to the Answer Archives so that you can access them later if you need to. My number one goal is for you to be successful, and I never want you to feel like you aren’t getting the information that you need. COURSE STEP COMMENTS - Each course step, will have a place for you to make comments and for other students to give their insight as well so that you can have not only my input but peer-to-peer insight as well.
Do I get any one-on-one time with Abbey?
There will be points in the course where you will send information to Abbey and receive back personal feedback. Abbey is always available as well for one-on-one coaching sessions for particular parts that you may be struggling with.
Do I have interaction with other students?
Absolutely! The entire course is designed for you to have lots of interaction with the other students so that you can create friends and support systems that will help you build your business through The Essentials and much longer!
Is The Essentials really right for me?
I know what you are thinking. This seems so intense! But keep in mind this, it took me five years to really get my business off the ground and be able to live the life I had dreamed of. Think of it this way, if you attended college, how long would it take for you to obtain a degree? Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you can’t build a thriving successful business in a day either. Lucky for you, I am giving you everything you need to accomplish in twelve weeks what took me much longer. I can guarantee that if you work the course, take the time needed to give it your all, and take my advice on building your business, you are going to accomplish something amazing in your business and life!
What is your refund policy?
