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.
Developing new skills
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.
While most creatives ignore or avoid the business parts of their work, we teach our students how to use creativity as an advantage.
Whether you're a musician, an artist, a filmmaker, or somewhere in-between, there has never been a greater opportunity for you to succeed in your career.
