Overview

The Creative Entrepreneur was voted Winner, in two categories—Craft and Business, of the 2009 IBPA (Independent Book Publishers Association) Benjamin Franklin Award which recognizes excellence in publishing.

This book is for the large audience of artists, crafters, and creative individuals from all walks of life who desire to make a livelihood from their creative work, or who possibly have achieved some success, but don’t know how to replicate it or move to another level of accomplishment. These crafty DIY artists are everywhere—they are holding alternative craft fairs, they advertise in the pages of Bust and ReadyMade and Craft, they are selling online by the thousands at Etsy.com, and are blogging at Typepad, LiveJournal, and Whipup.com. But many of them do not have the skills needed to take their business ideas to the next level.

The Creative Entrepreneur takes readers on an inner journey of creative exploration to discover how to make their dreams of creative livelihood real, as they craft their own Artist’s Business Journal. The Artist’s Business Journal is a visual, project-oriented, step-by-step approach to business development for artists from all walks of life who are mystified and possibly frustrated by how to make a business out of their creative work.

    A business book you will WANT to read! Absolutely inspiring!

    I was lucky enough to stumble upon this book and have found it to be the best book out there for a creative entrepreneur! This book would certainly be useful for anyone starting a business not just someone in an art-type field. I read it once through and am now creating my own visual journal. This book is well worth your dollar as you will find yourself continually learning from it and referencing it for brainstorming and inspiration. Highly recommended!

    Creative Content

    Since I have been wanting to be a creative entrepreneur all of my life, I decided to get the book! It is set up so well. It offers so much information and a means in which to accomplish the goals that it has you set. I have been working through it and carry it with me for every little moment I have to learn more about the business and my decisions to pursue my own.
