I've been struggling these past couple of years to get my business up and running. The first year was difficult and hugely disappointing as I depended on the wrong people. My bad. It set me back, and not only did I have to start all over again, but I had to pick up the debris left over from that big mistake. Still, I refused to get depressed over it and carried on, strengthened by my love of what I'm doing and faith in where I'm going with the business.
It's not an easy thing, getting the right-brain creative side to work hand-in-hand with the left-brain business side of things, but I'm now getting help from a good friend who has the professional background and is whipping me into shape, as well as direction from a brilliant e-course I'm taking at the moment, the Right-Brain Business Plan.
Apart from that, the classes I've taken this last year have been an incredible boost to my art. I feel as though I'm still searching for a 'style' and the journey, full of adventurous experimentation, is absolutely wonderful.
So my latest piece seems particularly apt for this Blog Parade. It speaks for itself.
There's a lovely, positive energy in the air, and the support of fellow students is a bonus I hadn't counted on and consider invaluable, even though haven't yet had the time to fully engage with everyone in the groups. I'm hoping to participate more, very soon!
Meanwhile, head on to Gabriella's site next, and enjoy the blog parade!
Wishing you a wonderfully creative day. Cheers.
