How to use your email list to boost passive income sales as an artist

  When you’re an artist, the truth is that you’d probably like to spend most of your time creating. Not shipping out packages, fielding customer service questions, or working on all the other admin tasks that come along with being a small business owner.

My Big Goals For 2019

So I took down all of my web design packages and started transitioning everything over to this ...

9 Steps to Create Passive Income In Your Creative Business

About this time last year, I was majorly dreading taking on any new web design clients. I had reached the point of burn out and I’d decided that it was finally time to create things that I wanted to create. That meant for me that it was time to really sit down and think about the direction my business was heading in. What I kept coming back to was that I wanted my business to be built on what is ...

How to use Trello effectively for your creative business

Many of my clients and customers have what I affectionately like to call “squirrel brain”. We all struggle with it from time to time and you might be struggling with it right now yourself. You know how it goes: You sit down at the beginning of your work session and you write out a lovely to-do list that leaves you feeling like you’re on top of things. But when you actually dive in to do the work, you’re in an ...
