Big Training, Little Instruction

If your experience is anything like mine, you have some fantastic training under your belt.

Perhaps you attended a high-end art school, got certified in cosmetology, trained under a ballet guru, mastered all of the elements of an intense theater program, or earned two music degrees from highly competitive schools (like me!).

Either way, I can say with certainty that through your training you learned SO MUCH about your chosen field and struggled through many challenges to master your craft. Working with masters and growing artistically brought you to heights you only dreamed were possible.

You accepted your diploma and other credentials, then entered the world on your own.

And, that’s when you realized that your training completely excluded instruction on what to do after graduation and how to run your creative career as a solo-entrepreneur.

So, you either got a job in another field (relegating your mastered craft to a side-hustle, at best), or you started piecing things together with a gig mentality. Neither solution is what you had in mind when you celebrated your acceptance into that amazing training-ground.

Perhaps you have even wondered if all of that training, hard work, and striving for excellence were a gigantic waste of time.

Here’s what no one told you:

In order to succeed in a creative field, you absolutely must become a solo-entrepreneur.

And, it is possible to do so without all of the salesy, dominating, aggressive tactics that the entrepreneurial gurus shout from the rooftops. There is no need to walk on hot coals or crush the competition. You can define your own success and reach it as a creative, caring, or spirit-based solo-entrepreneur.

You simply need guidance on how to easily put some systems in place, educate your audience, and build real relationships. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?!
