Feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, or confused? I've been there! 6 years ago I was ready to GIVE UP. I had my 3rd child. I had a “successful” small business, & I hoped to take a decent maternity leave. NOPE. Revenue was so dependent on my output that stepping away from the day to day was almost impossible. I had a team who shipped & handled assembly of products, but I had to make new art & hit deadlines.
Instead of enjoying my newborn son, I was sad & longing for change. By the end of 2016, I thought about walking away from Gingiber. Closing it down. The inconsistent revenue was too hard. I had put all of my income eggs in one basket.
I know now what I didn’t know then: ANY strong business needs multiple sources of income in order to create stability. And, it turns out, I was just a few decisions away from creating the stability and flexibility that my family so desperately needed.
Could I take my existing artwork and use it to create income? Could I design fabric? Could I illustrate books? Once I started dreaming BIG about how I could use my artwork to create income, the possibilities seemed ENDLESS. So I put my head down, got to work, and soon, I had my first fabric deal with Moda Fabrics.
I decided to pursue art licensing with a fierce focus, and I stopped referring to myself as a “doodler”. NOPE. I was now thinking of myself as a “Creative Entrepreneur”. And from then on, I prioritized teaching myself how to be a smart and strong business woman.
Does any of this feel familiar? Are you where I was 6 years ago? Do you feel like you need someone to take your hand & guide you towards your creating a sustainable, joyful, and stable creative career?
It can happen. It is never too late to change your life. Now is the time to build a stable foundation in your art business.
And I’m here to guide you, and to save you YEARS of mistakes, trial and error, and to help you realize that you have what it takes.
I've been exactly where you are: you are dreaming of having a career as an artist. I graduated with an art degree, but then became a coffee shop manager because I didn't know how to make money with my art.
I started selling my own artwork online. Then: LIGHTBULB MOMENT: I realized that I could leverage my artwork by licensing my art, selling products wholesale, creating my own website, and creating book illustrations. The possibilities seemed endless!
Now nearly 14 years later I license my art to major companies, sell my products in 1,400+ retail stores, teach thousands of creative entrepreneurs how to take their big ideas and run with them, & lead a growing team of amazing employees. I feel like I am in control of my business, and I want to teach you how to do the same.
I am here to teach you exactly how I did it, save you years of trial and error, and give you the advice and tips I wish someone had given me when I launched my business.
