Prosperous, Profitable, Sustainable Business

First and foremost you are a business owner.

Whether you are pursuing your career in the Arts & Entertainment Industry full time or part time, you are a business owner.

Even if you never want to pursue it full time,  if you want to bring in income, you are a business owner.

Even if you don’t care if you never make a profit or a living from your art, if you want to make a difference in the world with your art, you are a business owner.

If you want to expand the impact of your art beyond your family, friends and co-workers, you are a business owner

So, the best way to approach your journey is to develop your business skills (along with your creative skills), and learn what it takes to create a prosperous, profitable, and sustainable business.

Business isn’t rocket science.  I know a lot of creative folks cringe at the thought of learning business, thinking “Yech, Business = boring, overwhelming, ugly, icky, not at all sexy!”

But you know what else is boring, overwhelming, ugly, icky and not at all sexy?


So learn your business so that you can not only become prosperous – but so you can make your impact on the world.  The impact you are meant to create.

So you can fulfill your purpose.

In modern business it is not the crook who is to be feared most, it is the honest man who doesn’t know what he is doing.
