so you can focus on growing the business and delivering award-winning projects with ease


What if you could go from overworked and underpaid to a confident architect who's knows the path forward?

You started your own architecture practice because you wanted freedom.

Freedom to choose your own clients. Design freely. Take time off if you need it. Get paid what you deserve.

But you don’t want to be just any architect.

You want to do fantastic work.

Lead an incredible and talented team. Gain recognition for your projects. Have clients lining out the door to work with you. 

You want to be THAT architect.

But, after going off on your own, you hit a roadblock.

You know how to design well.

But you never learned how to run a business. 

Which makes you feel like an amateur architect who is making everything up as you go.

You're doing the best you can, but...

👉 You have a gut feeling that you're lacking significant business expertise.

👉 You struggle to make important business decisions because you’re not crystal-clear on your firm’s finances or capacity. 

👉 You lack systems and structure in your business, so you’re constantly bogged down in admin work.

👉 You want to go after bigger and better clients, but you’re not sure where to start or if you could even handle it.

👉 You are putting in MORE hours for LESS pay than you would be making if you worked for someone else…

You’re stuck in the hamster wheel of your architecture business working tirelessly without no way out

It's not your fault

No one teaches you how to run a business.

Not at university. Not when you’re working for someone else.

And even though you’ve,

✅ Attended the webinars that promised strategies for landing clients

✅ Listened to podcasts with hotshot architects revealing their secrets to success

✅ Followed all the architecture gurus on LinkedIn and saved a couple posts. 

✅ Maybe you even hired a coach or completed a course

You still feel lost in business.


Because even though there is tons of free how-to content online, it’s up to you to filter through the nonsense and determine what’s relevant to you. 

So you end up wasting hours and hours online, Googling for solutions when you could be focusing on more important tasks. 

This is the most painful (and slowest) way to build your dream life as an architect. 

Truth is, you don't need to figure this out all by yourself...



The comprehensive program you need to give you more control, more personal and financial freedom and less stress - without working overtime.

Created specifically for architects.


"I knew we had gaps in our practice, but the program helped me understand what had to happen to fill them. I learned more from those sessions in business than I have in the last 10 years of my practice."

Kate, Whispering Smith

Despite what you might have heard,

creating an architecture business that delivers great work, makes a profit on every project, and leaves you feeling emotionally and financially fulfilled isn’t out of reach.

But if you’re willing to put in the work, in about 10 weeks from now, you’ll have…

  • A clear direction for your architecture firm that drives all your decision-making
  • A proven methodology for securing an abundance of clients who want to work with you at the fees you set
  • Structures and systems in place so you can comfortably take a day off without everything collapsing
  • Comprehensive understanding of how business works and the levers you need to pull if you want to scale
  • More time focus on what you love - whether that’s designing, growing the business, or flying Business to an exotic destination


When we first started ArchiBiz, we created our signature Designing Architectural Practice Success Course (DAPS). The program aimed to teach architects the business fundamentals they needed to know to run their own business.

Architects had a gap in their business education. Our DAPS Program helped fill it.

350+ students around the world later, no refunds asked, and we couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve accomplished.

But over the years, we’ve grown. We’ve dug deeper into the architecture business world and discovered new findings, strategies, and frameworks.

We learned what works. What doesn’t.

We discovered that there are universal Principles of Business Success, and it’s exactly what you get when you enroll in our new Business Foundations Program

Inside the program, you’ll find our original Designing Architectural Practice Success course that you know and love, but with so much more new material.

Think of the Business Foundations Program as the new, beefed-up version of our signature DAPS Program. Our second generation of DAPS.

"Engaging ArchiBiz is one of the best business decisions we have made. I wish I would have done so earlier. As a business owner, this is worth so much."

Magnus, Strom Architects

In addition to the original DAPS Course curriculum, you will get...

8 New Chapters

Each module will now feature a new chapter with ArchiBiz Mentors Ray Brown and Tim Smith. In each chapter, there will be new strategies, practical frameworks and concepts presented to you that were not originally included in the DAPS Program.

6 Conversations with Industry Experts

Hear from the industry's leading voices and learn what they think are the biggest mistakes and opportunities in their niche. Features conversations with Nikita Morrell, Amy Edwards, Tyler Suomala, Ian Motley, Chris Walsh, Alex Lourie, and Ryan Sullivan.

Group Coaching

You'll get exclusive invites to our Foundations Forum, our monthly group coaching calls where you can get additional, hands-on support as you transform your business. This perk doesn't end when you finish the program either. Once you're a part of our community, you'll always be invited to join.

Revamped workbook

We've given our handbook a little bit of a glow up so that you can easily take notes as you go through the program. Includes new diagrams, worksheets and templates.

Immediate access

Rather than the drip-feed model we used with DAPS, we're giving you immediate, lifetime access to the entire course when you enroll. Whether you like to binge or take things slow, that's up to you!


"I was searching for a path to manage a better business, but understanding where to go and the tools to work with is crucial. I'm genuinely happy that I did the program."

Jakub, Jakub Kolarovic Architects

"You've opened my eyes. We love our work and do it happily, but this has enabled us to look at our business in a totally different way."

Wendy, Red Blue Architecture & Design

"I thought the course was really excellent. I feel like I've got a much better handle on steering the business intentionally. We even have an annual budget which we report against!"

Tom, Tom Turner Architects

You will learn exactly how to:

  • Create, read and interpret key financial reports so you can make informed business decisions
  • Clearly communicate your value to potential clients so that you can attract and win over your ideal clients every time
  • Manage your expenses and overhead so that your firm turns a profit while STILL paying you a decent salary
  • Charge for your value and not just the hours you put in so that you and your team never have to do unpaid work again
  • Hire strategically and confidently so that you are not left scrambling when you get busy (and don't have to let people go when work dries up)
  • Optimize key areas of your practice so that you can step outside of the day-to-day operations and focus on the long-term success of the practice

This course is perfect for you if...

"I really like the way ArchiBiz cuts through all the business waffle and makes complex things seem simple and accessible."

Anne, Hindley & Co

"I would undoubtedly recommend the course. It's improved not only my business, but how I personally relate to my business."

Antony, MRTN Architects

"This was a great course in how to operate a successful firm. This course brings all the key principles to the table with easy-to-follow guidelines and handouts."

Gilbert, PS Design


“I see such potential in architects and their practices. Too often that potential remains locked up because architects have never been taught the basics of business.

Rectifying that situation is my passion. Seeing our clients with good workflow, decent salaries and money in the company bank account gives me amazing satisfaction.”




We believe that if you succeed, we succeed. That’s why we guarantee our results.

Our guarantee isn’t the typical sneaky “kick the tyres, check it out, you’ll be satisfied – we promise!” style of guarantee. We stand behind our course 100% because we know it works when you take action.

The difference between information and real education is partnership. In a true education experience, the teacher and student ‘share’ responsibility for the student’s success. The teacher is invested just as much as the student. With ArchiBiz you have a committed partner in your course success.

Your responsibility in the partnership is to bring 100% of your effort and expertise; to participate, read, watch and do the homework and to reach out when you need help with the course.

If you don’t find value in the first 30 days of the program and have brought 100% of your effort and expertise in that time, then we will refund 100% of your money. You just need to let us know within the first 30 days of enrolling in the course.


  • Can I pay in my local currency?

Absolutely. All you have to do is scroll to the bottom left of this link and select your currency from the drop down menu.

Only Australians buying in AUD currency pay GST (Goods and Services Tax) on the course. If you are buying our courses from a jurisdiction outside of Australia, in an alternate currency, you will not be charged tax.

Yes. If you are looking for a payment plan, please reach out to us directly and we will manually set you up.

  • Are there any ongoing fees?

No. Once you sign up, you have ongoing access to the course on Thinkific. This is the hub where you will find everything you need to create a sustainable and profitable practice. We get that there’s a lot to take in and that you’re going to want to come back and recap on various topics as issues arise in your practice. Simply login and it’s all there to access.

  • I've already completed DAPS. Do I need to pay again?

Nope! As a thank you for being a part of our DAPS community, we're giving you access into the new materials at no extra cost. All you have to do is login to your Thinkific portal (from April 30, 2024 onwards) and the new content will be there!

  • I have a business partner, do we both have to pay for the course?

If you are only two people in your practice (whether business partners or not) and you would both like to do the program, you only have to pay once and both of you will get access. However, if you have more than 2+ people and you would like to do the program, please speak to us directly and we'll arrange a discount for your team.

  • If I decide the course isn't for me, can I get a refund?

We offer a 30-day, 100% money back guarantee on our Business Foundations Program. If you decide you don’t like it or it’s not for you, then as long as you contact us within 30 days of enrolling, we will happily refund 100% of your money, no questions asked. We don’t want any unhappy clients.

  • How much of my time will it take to do the courses as I'm fairly busy right now?

This is entirely up to you. When you enroll, you get immediate access to all of the modules. Each module should take you about two hours. We suggest setting aside an additional hour or two per week to think through the material and complete the homework. We will introduce and explain key concepts to you so that you can evaluate these in the context of your own practice. All in all, it should take you about 8 to 10 weeks to complete.

  • Have you worked with practices outside of Australia?

Yes, we have had people from practices in multiple countries complete our courses and engage with our coaching services, including the USA, Europe, South America, UK and New Zealand. The materials are specifically designed to be applicable for all architectural firms, regardless of where you're located.

  • If I have questions, who can I contact?

We understand that the material can be a lot to digest. You will have access to our Course Community once you enroll in the program. There, you can seek support from Archibiz Mentors and your peers. We promise to respond to you within 48 hours.

  • What happens once I finish the course?

Upon finishing a course you will receive a Certificate of Completion that may be used when applying for CPD points from the relevant body that manages CPD in your jurisdiction.

More than that, once you finish you’ll be a part of our growing community at Archibiz.

Can I continue to get help after a course?

We offer a variety of services, such as virtual business coaching or business reviews, to help accelerate your journey. You can learn more about these on the services page of our website.
