I’ve walked the creative path many times. I’ve faced its perils, its frustrations, its agonies, and I’ve enjoyed the fruits of success. I know how hard it is for creatives to adapt to the business realities of running a creative practice. Not only does art school lack business training, but there's something about the artistic mindset that makes it hard to put down the brushes to balance the books, or quit out of Photoshop to start prospecting on Linkedin. But there are critical business disciplines that creatives can't afford to ignore. I can guide you down the path to a profitable, sustainable, and enjoyable creative practice.
