Thanks so much. Honestly, I don’t have it all figured out. It’s easy for people to look at you online and assume you know what you’re doing and are successful, and sure I’ve learned a lot over the years, but I’m definitely still learning myself. Mostly where turning art into a successful business is concerned. I don’t have much of a mind for business, and my marketing skills are inconsistent at best. I struggle constantly between deciding on specializing in order to carve out a strong niche, or diversifying to gain a wider spread of income.
But like I said, I have learned a few things at least. Plus I just had a cup of coffee, and this is all fresh on my mind as of late. So here it goes.
There’s probably more to say. And all that advice I gave is all stuff I have to tell myself constantly. Some parts more than others. But if you haven’t gotten those parts down, you’re gonna have a bad time.
