We've all heard the stigma of the "starving artist."

Sadly, it's often true.

Let's face it: being a creative entrepreneur is hard work.

It requires:

  • Developing new skills

  • Getting organized

  • Changing your behaviors and habits

  • Breaking through personal barriers

Most creatives choose to ignore this entrepreneurial part of their work.

As a result:

  • Society continues to devalue creative work

  • Creatives get stuck in non-creative jobs that they hate

  • Parents dissuade their kids from pursuing creative work for their career

Unfortunately, very few schools effectively teach the creative entrepreneur’s skillset.

Even most college graduates who finish with a degree in a creative field rarely ever get entrepreneurial education.

And yet, it’s exactly what’s required to succeed in the world today.

That’s why we created Artist to Entrepreneur.
