So, #March is #NationalCraftMonth and I am crafting up some real serious exspeealaDOPEness! I mean that literally and figuratively. I have some jewelry projects I’ve been putting off and I have some interesting things that I am crafting with my business.
Sometimes you just have let the creativity flow and see what you manifest. Many creators of beautiful work stop at tge creating part and don’t take the time to see how they can monetize their work. At Lady Bizness we always Shout out to all the #Makers #Crafters #Artists #Writers #Producers #Dancers #Musicians and more….But once you create are you planning to make money with it?
If you want to go from a hobby to a business and be an #Artrepreneur then you should register to attend UNCG’s #ArtsRevolution! Arts Revolution is a celebration of the Triad’s multi-faceted art community. The morning kicks off with business-savvy educational workshops for artists, followed by an afternoon of fun, interactive art experiences with the artists and local community. The evening will feature live performances in a festival atmosphere.
Chisa Pennix-Brown, MBA of Lady Bizness will be teaching a new workshop entitled “Beyond a Hobby: Maximizing Your Time” using the methodology of The 90 Day Focus: Your Action Plan for Success.
