You Don’t Expect Your Art To Always Be One Thing…
So Why Put That Pressure On Your Cash Flow?

 

When you expect your original art sales to be your main, even sole source of making money, the pressure can feel enormous.

…sometimes to the point of affecting your creativity and self-esteem when those originals aren’t making the grade.

 Thank goodness, with all of the tools available these days, you have more options than ever to bring in cash flow above and beyond selling your original work.


sellyourartmakemoneyLast spring, I had the pleasure of working with an artist in Hawaii who uses Sacred Geometry as the unifying theme underpinning every piece she creates.

Not only does this give her a significant aspect of her artistic fingerprint (i.e., your artist’s voice), she also turns this core theme into different streams of income that allow her to relax and wait for the right collector to buy her very high-end originals.

With income flowing in from other sources, she has more freedom to work on new originals without worrying about whether or not the older ones are selling. 

The great part of this story is that, because she broadened her cash flow base, she simultaneously broadened her visibility and ability to sell the originals. 

Nice combination.

So, how can you do this too?

The tricky part is getting the right information about different ways of creating income so you can make the right decisions for you and your work.

Bringing you the ALL NEW “More Ways to Make Artsy Money” Training #2

Because our world is expanding exponentially in all directions at once, and keeping up seems a full time job, I’m thrilled to bring you four more art-career experts, and successful artists, who can help you pull in more income based on what’s happening right now in the art world.

So exactly what is the ALL NEW “More Ways to Make Artsy Money” Training #2?

This training is a four-hour audio series (MP3 files you can stream to your iPod or burn to your own CDs) that includes four speaker handouts (you can read and print out) focused exclusively on alternate streams of income just for visual fine artists!

Before you can assess which streams of income are right for you and your art, you have to educate yourself about what’s actually out there.

And, because so much of our New World is inundated with information from sources that are hard to verify and trust, I personally vetted every single art-career expert, and successful artist, who gives these trainings.

This training for “More Ways to Make Artsy Money 2” recognizes two things:

Making art is deeply intimate, and offering it to the world is a vulnerable and courageous act.

It’s not just that you love what you do, it’s that what you do is intricately bound up with your identity.

1)  When it comes to making additional revenue, good decisions that lead to successful outcomes have to align with the truest sense of who you are.

You know yourself and your art better than anyone else. So, even if an expert is giving expert advice, you are the final judge if it’s right for you or not.

2)  When you trust yourself and trust that the information you are hearing feels right for you, that’s when confusion and stress disappear.

Our bodies are the best barometers of truth because, unlike our brains, our bodies can’t lie. If you’re sick, you’re sick. If you feel light and upbeat, that’s how you feel.

Paying attention to your body’s message gives you a barometer you can trust—for you.

When you have information about new streams of income, to assess and review, from a source you trust—and you are paying attention to your own messages (are you leaning back as the speaker is talking, or leaning closer?) —the entire “new streams of income” process transforms from a confused “What do I do?” to “Oh, here’s a first step I can take.”

Let’s take a look at the successful artists and art-career authorities who can help you expand your cash flow.

(not to mention giving you some practice listening to your own inner messages…)

Limiting Your Avenues for Cash Flow Limits Your Potential

Expanding beyond the sale of original work offers a chance for you to be pro-active and engaged with new venues and people you might never have the chance to meet otherwise

And, as we all know, life is prone to dishing up wild, new opportunities in the most mysterious of ways when we break out of familiar behavior patterns.

So, even though making art is what you do, and selling originals and a few derivatives is what you know best – what delights might be waiting to surprise you once you take the plunge to try something really new?
