For the Artist + Maker + Creative Entrepreneur
I love my little world, my artsy life and creating every day. I am living the dream, I am a full time artist who gets to draw, paint and create every day and makes money doing it. How great is that! But let's face it being successful at anything you do in life requires some work.
As a creative entrepreneur, no matter your field, it is up to you to show up and do the work every day. This can feel particularly challenging when your business relies on your creativity. As business owners, we don’t have the luxury of just creating when we feel like it. Most artists are rebels at heart, don’t tell them how to do something, that is too constricting for them and they will scoff at the ideas you present. But when you need to grow your business you need to be honest and ask yourself what will set me free to create more and help me become successful at what I do.
Let's be honest, who does not want to be a full time creative and productive artist in their field? Not a starving artist but one who makes a good living and loves what they do. When I first ventured into going full time as an artist I had a plan. Let me share with you some simple strategies I use to make sure I stay as efficient, creative and productive as possible in my business. Some take discipline, but all have an impact. Weather you are a full time artist, aspire to become one or you simply want to focus on having a more creative life or business you will need to make changes and that is the tough part for all of us.
