Our Origin Story
“Business at its heart is an artistic creation.”
CEO and Founder Laura Gouin spent years as a “starving artist” until she started freelancing as an agile project manager. She discovered how much her artistic career experience had set her up for success as an ideal match for entrepreneurs and businesses.
Artists know how to communicate with empathy and warmth, and look for the story beneath the words. They understand that in the rapidly shifting world of business, the right decision on Monday morning might be the worst decision by that afternoon. They embody the motto that “the show must go on” and understand obstacles are simply things that must be overcome in order to get to opening night.
This is why when Laura received an opportunity to expand her client base, she knew the unique value she provided could only be replicated with artists.
This is where the story of Satiated Artists began.
Why the funny name?
“Satiation means to be really, truly satisfied.”
The world tells artists in a variety of ways that in order to have the right to call yourself an “artist”, you must starve. We believe there’s another way.
We advocate for the concept of satiation for all human beings. Having enough enhances quality of life and allows humans to bring their best selves to work.
For an artist it means having the freedom and flexibility to follow their passions while making a living. This translates to more loyalty than someone who is only driven by climbing a corporate ladder.
For our clients it means being custom matched to your best creative human, the person who can allow you to be in two places at once and give you the bandwidth to do the things only you can do.
And the secret sauce, the way we truly satiate is that behind each match, you get us, an entire executive team who collectively has over 25 years of experience in executive assisting, project management, operations coordinating, communications coordinating, and account management.
Think of us as a staffing agency, a recruitment firm, a training and coaching program, an artistic community, and a consultancy all in one.
