Would you like to create a creative side business that is aligned with your artistic passion? It’s a lot easier than you might think.
1. Define you artistic passion.
2. Think of something that those involved with your artistic passion desperately need.
3. Come up with a solution for for that need. For example, imagine that acting is your passion, a solution for actors to get work is a good demo reel. You could start a side business editing actor’s demo reels.
That’s all there is to it. We followed the same procedure when putting our “Artist Steps” program together. We knew that artists of all kinds needed a way to build visibility for their art in the marketplace while making a living.
We stepped a bit “out of the box” and developed a system for being able to effectively do fundraising for, as well as make, a web series that would bring the “wow factor” to someone’s work being showcased in it. You see, we live in the digital age and unless you are engaged in it in a unique way you are missing out for your career.
If you apply out of the box thinking you can come up with a service that people need that is fun for you to do, plus is in sync with your pursuit of your art form.
