I've spent a lot of years talking "romantic" about the business of Art, but today calls for something different.
And don't get me wrong, there is not a day that goes by I'm not thankful I chose this life as an Artist.
It is the best. I love it.
I most certainly am all about the romance. I wholeheartedly believe in following your dreams and your heart, and I'm proof that you CAN build a successful business with those intentions plus commitment and grit to stick with it on the days when you might want to quit (which will totally happen... more than once)
But when I look at what's being taught in my industry, there's a lot of pretty talk around what we all want and that is to SELL OUR WORK 🎉🙌🏻 whether that's an original painting, a book, a collection of cards or prints, or an online class we are offering.
A business isn't a business unless it makes sales.
And sales don't happen unless you get comfortable with selling.
And while I know a lot of Artists resist "selling" (I know because I was one of those Artists) I'm here to tell you can learn to sell without being salesy.
I call it Artful Selling. It's authentic, it's heartfelt and it connects you to your wonderful Collectors.
It's what turns your dream into a business.
After I returned to coaching 2 years ago, I knew that I wanted to do more than just talk about how beautiful it is to choose a life as an Artist, and teach and tell you how to build a Creative Business. It's not enough.
I want to get you RESULTS.
As a business mentor and coach, I am dedicated to helping you take action!
