It looks like there is quite a lot on your plate and it would be good to give it some structure. There is never enough time or resources to focus on the business side of your practice. On the other hand it drives you mad that it doesn’t work as it could and should. You are not making enough sales, not getting enough contracts or you simply do not know how to start to build a sustainable creative career.
We have been there ourselves and know exactly how frustrating it can be. All we can recommend to you is to STOP, take 3.5 days out and join us for our intensive Creative Entrepreneurs Training Programme.
You will spend this time working on the business side of your creative practice. Together with you we will (re)define where you are right now with your creative business and where you want to be. You will formulate goals and steps to take with the primary focus on your specific creative niche.
This course is extremely beneficial; it’ll help you to answer all your strategic questions and to define the backbone of your creative business. It helps you to prepare a smart plan for the short, middle and also the long term perspective.
We will lead the whole process and provide you with the tools and feedback you need. You will learn the newest entrepreneurial techniques and discuss your ideas and challenges with us and a small group of other Creatives who are working on developing their own creative endeavours. We never accept more than 10 participants!!
The peer interaction is invaluable. The participants come from different creative and artistic backgrounds but have multitude of experiences, contacts and ideas and are always happy to share.
All training at our Creative Entrepreneurs Academy is experience-based learning run by Creatives for Creatives. We combine the unique set of Professional and Entrepreneurial Skills we recommend for creatives of all genres as the best tool for establish a sustainable practice. It’s a steep way but we will do our best to help you to get where you want to be, clearly and efficiently.
