Are you an artist or maker who teaches and inspires others to be their most creative selves?
Do you want to change the world with your work?
Are you ready to lead that change?
AND…do you want to make good money doing it?
Then, perhaps, you are a Teaching Artist Entrepreneur!
As a teaching artist, you have already been thrust into the position of self-employed worker. You are out there on your own, fighting the good fight. You are balancing your art-making and your teaching. You are working in a variety of settings. You are figuring out how all of it fits together in one cohesive, satisfying, and fruitful life.
I know that many of us are intimidated by what it takes it be effective in business. As artists, we may feel like we’re not good with money or we are uncomfortable promoting ourselves. All of these fears and mental blocks make total sense. Society has been pretty cruel to artists. It tells us that we are ineffective dreamers. It tells us that we can’t make a living doing what we love.
But, there is good news. First, we don’t have to believe these messages. And second, we don’t have to run our businesses the same way everyone else does. Just because some guy with an MBA tells you there is one way to promote your work or one way to manage your money doesn’t mean that you have to believe him.
As teaching artists, we know that there are always multiple paths to solving a problem. Now, let’s work together to figure out the path that work best for you and build your business.
In “The Teaching Artist Entrepreneur” online course you will:
- Discover your purpose and mission as an entrepreneur
- Develop a business that works for your passion, lifestyle, and bank account
- Learn all the steps you need to “set up shop” as a business structure
- Get the tools and systems that will help you work efficiently and effectively
- Join a community of other teaching artists who are daring to make their entrepreneur dreams come true
