Managing Your Creative Business? Here is what to expect and be prepared for!
Managing your creative business is never as easy as you like it to be, but if you are planning on getting started, the time is now. If you are creative, talented and organized, then you are well away to a good start.

Let’s be factual: Artist do face challenges daily
You may be an artist who is pursuing your dream and at the same time working on other jobs to make a living.
You could also be a full-time artist and be fulfilling your goals by focusing all your time, resources and energy on creating your art.
Whichever path you take, the journey isn’t always easy BUT can become so when properly planned and structured. It normally takes years of studies and practice to master a craft and that goes the same in business. While you may be a great artist, sometimes you may find it difficult to also be a successful working artist.
The Striving and Thriving Artist
The artist who desires to be successful must be able to learn to be disciplined. You could learn to organize your activities such as what time is appropriate to draw, when is the right time to make a phone call to that gallery or art collector, when is the best time to exhibit an art project, and so many other factors.
As an artist you should also think of ways to transition from just being a creative painter to strategic ways to market your projects online or offline!
You can get your art business going on good waters and on a great start – by opting for a great name/branding. If you are an art business owner, likely you should be working with other people and it’s essential that you are a bit aware of “management and leadership”.
Another reality is that most artists have a hard time valuing what they do, most particularly if the thing they do comes so naturally to them.
Marketing your art can be much easier to conquer and implement – when you offer the marketplace/world by connecting or solving a problem.
Once you have your art business well organized and structured, you will do much better work, earn more revenue and have more resources. So as an artist, seek for ways to prioritize your daily schedules, sell online or off line and remember that if you treat your art like every other business; success is imminent!
