Pro Moves: Decision Making as an Artist Entrepreneur

March 27, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


It’s time to embrace that as an artist, you are an entrepreneur. Every day, you have to make critical decisions about how, when, and where to spend your time, energy, and money in order to make it all work. Instead of scrambling between sales, being unsure of how to manage your time, and not knowing which business directions are right for you, learn how to make decisions that more clearly align with your overall goals and values. In this interactive session with workshop activities and a Q+A, you will learn about issues such as if and when to take on debt, how to plan for uneven income flows, and how to integrate different lines of business for well-rounded support.
