Start Over

Just start over. Right here, right now. Let July be a fresh start for you.

Let’s talk income goals since this is a business blog.

How much do you need/want to make in the remainder of 2012?

What are the specific things you need to do in order to achieve that? Do you need to . . .

  • Make more art? Exactly how much more art? Then you’d better make sure you put in your studio time. What’s standing in the way of quality studio time and how can you eliminate the barrier?
  • Diversify your offerings? Would smaller work sell better? What do you need to do/change in order to diversify?
  • Add another venue or two? Get out there and secure your spots.
  • Resurrect that newsletter you let lapse? What are the steps for publishing a newsletter and what timelines can you attach to them.
  • Just get better about staying in touch with your contacts? What’s keeping you from sharing your art with people? Is your database in order? Do you have an email platform in place? Do you need to set reminders?
If keeping your name in front of your contacts is one of your weaknesses, consider joining us for the Cultivate Collectors class starting July 11. We’re all about nurturing meaningful relationships that can lead to a healthier and more financially stable art career. Click here to read about it.
