Calling all artists...
If you are a little stuck right now…
Or, um a lot stuck…
Or you need to know where you should be focusing right now…
Or just want some more momentum forward and some outside expert eyes on your art business…
This is for you. So, keep reading 😃
👀One of the most helpful things to grow your art business is to get someone that knows-what-the-heck-they-are-talking about to take a peek at it.
☎️And I'm offering this right now for a limited time: A confidential 1-on-1 breakthrough and strategy session to turn your passion into profit.
For the next few weeks, I’ve blocked off time in my calendar and I would love to talk to you 👩🎨
Now as you might imagine, I don't have time to talk to everyone which is why this is by application only 📝I only have a few spots open and they're going to fill up fast!
Oh…and if you qualify for the 30 min strategy and breakthrough session? It’s free! ❤️
What’s the catch? 🤔 Well, there really isn’t one but let me explain.
1️⃣: The goal of this session is to help you. I want to learn about you and your goals to help identify strategies/work through challenges and develop a plan forward. It doesn’t matter if you are just getting started in selling art OR if you are a seasoned pro looking for your next steps (or…somewhere in-between). As long as you want to turn you passion into profit this is for you.
2️⃣ : Obviously spots are limited (I can only do so many calls) so I only want to talk to folks who are serious about selling their art. (not you want to "paint for fun"-- nothing wrong with that-- but then this isn't for you) There really isn’t a “catch” other than if you’re a good fit to work with me long term then we'll talk about that as well. Maybe or maybe not (and only if it is a perfect fit)
