Business Sense for the Artist


15 per package - Virtual OK - Posted Apr 25, 2017

Are you an artist trying to navigate the business side of things but feel utterly lost? Let me help ya figure it out. This is but one of more than a dozen lessons that I'll be creating to help my fellow artists become successful business owners. When we start out, all we want to do is create our art, right? We love our art, our family loves our art, our friends love our art; so we expect that the public will love our art. So we put ourselves out there...but no one buys anything!!! What gives? Well, a LOT. As an artist our brains have a difficult time wrapping around the analytical and linear aspects of turning our artistic passion into a sustainable business. This is where I can help. So let's dive in to potentially turning your art into a profitable business.

In this course, 2 worksheets and a 20 slide presentation are included to help get you to start thinking about a few basic aspects of the business side of turning your artistic passion into a career.

To redeem this, once you "purchase" the item, send me a message with your email address. At that point, I will either enroll you personally into the course - it's hosted on the Thinkific platform - or I will provide you with a coupon code I've created specifically for the Simbi marketplace.

I've been saying for years that we as a culture need to go back to the tribal mentality of living. We have an abundance of food, allow me to share that with you. Oh, you're a carpenter? Can you ...
