Make your dreams of creative livelihood real!
If you are a creative, artist or crafter of any type and would like to make a business from your artistic pursuits or if you already have a creative-based business that could use some business strategy help, The Creative Entrepreneur by Lisa Sonora Beam might be just what you need to take it to the next level.
Here’s a description of the book from the publisher:
This book is for the large audience of artists, crafters, and creative individuals from all walks of life who desire to make a livelihood from their creative work, or who possibly have achieved some success, but don’t know how to replicate it or move to another level of accomplishment. These crafty DIY artists are everywhere–they are holding alternative craft fairs, they advertise in the pages of BUST and READYMADE and CRAFT, they are selling online by the thousands at Etsy.com, and are blogging. But many of them do not have the skills needed to take their business ideas to the next level. The Creative Entrepreneur takes readers on an inner journey of creative exploration to discover how to make their dreams of creative livelihood real, as they craft their own Creative Entrepreneur Journal.
