It hasn't always been easy, but it continues to bring me great joy and satisfaction. I then purchased an existing blog business, and almost overnight, started making more money than I had in my previous job.
Tara, one of our most successful business instructors here at CreativeLive, has successfully gone from selling her services, to packaging them into digital products for her clients. It's helped her significantly scale her business, and now she teaches a class about how to turn your services into a product. It took me the ensuing five years to understand the lesson in her passing.
Life is too short to do something you don't love. She had been a maverick in her field, an Oscar winning actress who knew at age 7 what she wanted. It took me a bit longer. However, I was still frustrated that I was not in charge of my day and my decisions. When I asked my manager for time off, she said I didn't have it. I said I did, and dug my heels in. Arguing with your manager when you need your job is never wise.
I walked out. I launched immediately while taking up side jobs supervising a catering kitchen and teaching busy professionals aka potential clients for my interior design practice during evening education programs. I worked 15 hour days, 6 days a week, because I wanted to. I couldn't wait to get up, and hated to go to bed at night. I was totally on fire.
Today, I design both home and business environments, while also advising the business and lifestyles that go on inside of them.
You will meet with unexpected success. When I was young, I wanted them but couldn't afford them. Then I realized, if I ordered them for my friends and became a distributor, I could get mine for free.
So at the age of 12, I started a poster distribution business out of my bedroom. I had a lot of freedom to express my ideas after all, ideas are what a magazine thrives on. But still Upon further examination, I arrived at three facts:. I've been an entrepreneur pretty much my entire professional career. You have to overcome the fear, and it's a lot of work, but the rewards are fantastic. After checking into different businesses, I actually won a camera, so that sealed the deal for a photography business. I built that business by moonlighting for a few years until the income surpassed my corporate job and then went full-time.
Even though it was painful to leave my corporate security, I am forever grateful that I did, because it led to a life and business I love! I knew that I didn't want my boss's job, any of the other senior management roles, or to work more to hour days. I also knew I didn't want to sacrifice my quality of life, and regret not living. I brainstormed which skills I could build upon, and what people needed.
At the time, my friends were searching for more career direction, so I offered minute career clarity sessions. I booked 4 sessions and got my first three clients. Instead, I wanted to leverage my corporate experience to help small business owners build their sales processes, and develop winning sales systems that could stand the test of time.

I was blown away. The line of kids reached the end of the block. However, the artists provide the scans of their own work, because scans are something they need for their own archives. If you've got a piece that's got a high gloss coating or a resin, that's a little tricker, but for the majority of works on canvas or paper, it's pretty easy.

Helice Wen, via Spoke Art. Reproducing work on t-shirts or mugs means that a single work can bear fruit indefinitely. However, some galleries like Spoke, opt for a limited edition model on many of the works they represent. The effect is much like that of a limited time offer—creating a sense of scarcity and urgency is an excellent marketing tactic.

For Ken, however, the decision to limit print runs goes deeper:. Things that are special should be treated like they're special. While we may be able to make more money selling things as an open edition and selling as many as we possibly can, I think that by offering our works as limited editions really helps add to the value of the art.
