My Art's on TV!

My Art's on TV!

Have you ever wondered how Art gets chosen for TV + film?

 

As an Artist whose work is featured in the 2nd highest grossing feature film of all time, The Avengers Endgame, I'm going to break it all down for you in this episode.

 

It's not just because I live in Los Angeles that my Art has found its way onto countless walls in both film and tv over the years (although it does help!)

 

There are a variety of ways you can get your Art seen in the entertainment industry.

 

I'm sharing the scoop from what you can expect to be paid, to the rights you want to be aware of, all to help you decide whether you actually want your Art featured in film and tv.

Are you frustrated with all the changes?

 

Do you find the resistance creeping in along with a wish to just keep things the same for a while, already!

 

I see Artists coping with similar struggles over and over, and it doesn't help that there are also a lot of shifts happening all at once in the creative and online industries.

 

If we want to keep following through on our plan, it's time for a different approach again.

 

I've recognized an important shift you can make starting today that may help you let go of ALL those same struggles.

 

In today's podcast episode I share with you my biggest takeaways after hosting another session of the Profitable Artist Planning Workshop along with the top 4 trends I see happening in our industry and my suggestions on how you can adapt to the changes to continue experiencing the success you want.

What qualities separate a Struggling and a Thriving Artist?

What qualities separate a Struggling and a Thriving Artist?

When you think of a Thriving Artist, what qualities do you think they embody?

 

In today's episode, I'm joined by 3 Artists, Marie Delage Carlson, Heather Harrington, and Yvonne Sellick.

 

Alumni from our first sessions of Artful Selling joined me to share with me not only the qualities that they believe separate the Struggling from the Thriving Artist but also what has made the difference for them as they continue to gain more momentum and Art sales in their Creative businesses!

 

  • from leaving graphic design to becoming a full-time Artist,
  • to getting comfortable with selling once and for all
  • how selling is easy once you get clear on 1 thing in particular
  • to booking more commissions for happy customers all in a row
  • to growing in confidence

 

And more. As is often the case with my conversation with fellow Artists, we touch upon a lot of details involved with this courageous Artist journey we're all on together.

 

The Doors to Artful Selling are OPEN! but only until Tuesday, August 30, @ 11:59 pm PDT

At Square One Building Your Art Business? 3 Steps to Get Started

At Square One Building Your Art Business? 3 Steps to Get Started

You don't want to skip this part!

 

It can be easy to get too carried away with more advanced steps to building your Art business that you completely forget to be thoughtful in the order and care you take those early steps.

 

When you rush, and try to figure it out by yourself you just cost yourself more frustration and time in the long run.

 

Save yourself that agitation now and ask an experienced Mentor you trust for guidance.

Healing from Surgery + How I Won’t Be Doing Business the Same

Healing from Surgery + How I Won’t Be Doing Business the Same

No one wants it to take an overnight hospital stay to be the wake-up call for you to learn an important lesson.

But so be it.

This is my personal story that doesn’t veer far from my professional life. For too long I let fear and anxiety influence the way I chose to grow my Creative Business, and this is where it’s time to make a new choice.

The person who went into the hospital is not the same person who came out, and how I was running it will no longer be the way I will be running it going forward.

In today’s episode, I share with you how this health challenge inspired me to dive into my fear versus resisting it, and what has happened since.

But, Can You Make 💰 With Your Passion?

But, Can You Make 💰 With Your Passion?

Stunned that we're still having this conversation and throwing cautionary tales out to people who may just be getting up the courage to pursue their passion as a business, I open this episode with a response to a conversation I heard with 2 well-respected Women leaders, just moments before I went LIVE for Creative Business Coaching over Coffee last week

 

And then one of our founding Expansive Artists members, Quilting Artist + Teacher Laura came on to get coaching help with her recent “failures”.

 

She bravely, and vulnerably shared what happened in her recent launch, and together we came up with a solution for her next steps. Spoiler alert: no failing actually happened….😝

How Can You Reach More of Your Audience?

How Can You Reach More of Your Audience?

Turns out that when asked if social media feels both frustrating, and confusing as to who's actually following you? that answer was a resounding 100% on a recent poll I posted.

 

Which means, we've got some work to do!

 

Precisely why I'm back with another edition of Creative Business Coaching over Coffee where I get to have a conversation with EA member and Artist Jeanette Bergstrom answering her Social Media questions.

 

And I open this call by answering this question from Katherine about how to reach more followers, by sharing a whole lot of Social Media tips including:

  1. What content performs best on Instagram right now
  2. Reasons why you may not get seen on Social Media
  3. How to grow organically on Social Media

What Worked What Didn't Work 2021

What Worked What Didn't Work 2021

It's become tradition!

A couple of years ago I started sharing a behind the scenes studio wrap up of what worked and what didn't when it came to my art practice and my creative business.

And how did it impact my personal life?

One of my best years in business thus far, a lot of progress made, and definitely more room for improvement in one area I was struggling with last year.

The question is which one will I choose to interpret my overall year?

Why You Might be Getting in Your Own Way

Why You Might be Getting in Your Own Way

Is there really such thing as self-sabotage?

Why would we ever consider keeping ourselves away from what we say we want?

Doing ALL the things for many years, and still not progressing in the way I envisioned, lead me to start a deep dive on learning more about the brain from science to psychology.

Oh the discoveries, wow! mind-blowing, pun intended.

Coming to understand the science behind our automatic behaviors and the choices we make is life changing and I hope this quick overview brings you some insight + understanding that you may have been seeking too.

Artist Success Stories - Dreaming BIG + Making it Happen

Artist Success Stories - Dreaming BIG + Making it Happen

Coming to you with a special Sunday edition of the podcast.

In 2000, I started to ask myself the question, if I truly believed I could follow my dreams and become anything I want to be in this world, would this path I'm currently on, be the one I'd choose? It was answering that question that ultimately lead me to finally acknowledging that I always wanted to become an Artist.

When I was easing my way into the belief that I could be an Artist, I found great comfort in listening to any and all stories from people who had been where I was, chose to pursue their passions and made it.

I couldn't get enough of these stories. Let's be honest I still can't get enough.

What has become my check-in, I still ask myself that question, which invites me to keep dreaming bigger. And it's listening to stories from the inspiring people out ahead of me on the journey that keeps me appreciating how far I've come and enthusiastically focused forward on all the goodness that is yet to come!

I can talk endlessly about my passion for mentoring The Expansive Artists how inspired I am by their kind + generous spirits, dedication to their dream, and their incredible progress every week, not to mention their beautiful art!

But today I invite them to share their stories, and experience as a member of The Expansive Artists to inspire you and give you more insight into what it's like to work with me and be a part of our incredible community if you're thinking about joining us this time!

Enjoy a recording from a recent live chat.
