HEY CREATIVE POWERHOUSE!
Yes, you are a real creative Powerhouse, you're confident in your creative work. Talking about your creative process and why you create what your creating isn't making you panic. You feel at home in creative environments and know plenty of creators personally.
Your open to learning new things, especially when it comes to your creative work. Being a creative business owner isn't something that feels like it's you yet. You have no problem calling yourself a creative, but calling yourself, a business owner hasn't happened yet.
It's time for you to stop doubting your abilities, you're ready to grow this creative adventure of yours into a genuinely successful creative business.
You don't need to worry about selling your soul or changing your creative work. It is possible to follow your creative passion and be financially successful.
The fact is NOBODY will come to knock on your studio door demanding to buy your work. You'll need to show it to them, first. They need to get to know you.
So show your work and be visible.
You took the first step on your journey to become a true sparkling creative!
Congratulations. Opening up and learning about the business side of things is something many creatives avoid for a long time.
Even though I encourage you and teach you marketing and all those other fancy business things, which are necessary, the most critical thing is mastering your mindset.
Without updating your believes and opening up to the idea of making money with your passion, you'll be staying stuck where you are right now.
I've put together a few resources that will help you take the first steps in the direction of becoming a true sparkling creative, one that is thriving. I hope the resources will help you. In case you have any questions or would like to get some one on one support feel free to send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or schedule a free mini session with me.
Have a sparkling day,
Before you dive into the resources, I have one important tip for you. As you know you're a creative at heart, however, the business side of things doesn't come as natural to you. That is why you should go out there and surround yourself with business minded people, creatives, but also people out of other industries.
You could start by joining a couple of facebook groups for creative entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs in general.
The first one I would recommend you, of course, is the sparkling creative community over on Facebook, where fellow creatives and I are hanging out talking about all the things that come up when running a creative empire.

Creating a plan that helps you sell your creative work, is easier than you might think. Those fancy business words are making things more complicated than necessary. So let's dive into creating a marketing plan that you can implement, one that isn't relying on funds you might not have at the moment.
If your anything like me you tend to search for solutions for your business troubles in business strategies. And yes there could be a solution lying in them. However more often than not the answer lies within yourself. Most of the time we've not entirely committed to being successful on the inside, maybe because we're scared of failure, maybe because we're afraid of success. Find out what is holding you back.
Finding and keeping our focus is something we struggle all with from time to time. However, there are a few strategies that will help you choose a priority to bring you closer to what you desire to achieve. The secret lies in choosing just one priority, even though that's often easier said than done.
If you'll ask me what the one thing was that changed my business from making no money at all to one where I have to handle waitlists, it is entirely due to pitching and promoting. Doing just that and focusing on it brought many awesome clients into my life and business. However, it also helped me to change the perception I had of my business. It skyrocketed my confidence and helped me own my creative superpower.
