Have you been participating in Stacie's Mini Course on being a Creative Powerhouse? It is interesting to me that even after all these years of my own art licensing, I still learn new things or am reminded of the things we need to do on a regular basis to sharpen our skills and become better. I was listening to Stacie talk about setting big goals. I've been so busy working that I haven't taken the time to set some new goals for myself.
So after listening to Stacie's second lesson in her mini-course, I wrote down new goals. I loved Stacie saying "You've got more power about what happens in your life...The dreaming stage is a part of the process of being a creative powerhouse and remember dreams can grow. They can evolve and they can change. The most important thing to know is that you can hold your dreams loosely in your hands and leave room for inspiration and opportunity."
We often don't know exactly what it is that we are striving for until we start learning, start envisioning, start opening ourselves up to the ideas of bigger and better than what we have right now, and start setting the big scary goals. The notion that you can hold dreams loosely in your hands and leave room for inspiration and opportunity is an exciting and motivating concept. We need to take time to examine and learn and grow and be open to these opportunities.
In lesson 4 Stacie talks about making money from your art. Yup, the business stuff. Multiple streams of income. There is a lot of info to take in. Which is why she has a more thorough course. It's a LOT of stuff. I just might be one of those speakers on a bonus segment in her course too! (which, funny thing is...is one of my goals to do MORE teaching and public speaking).
If you want more info on Stacie's course "Leverage Your Art", please check out all her info here:
It is an 8 week class, online, and covers lots of information about the many ways to make a living from your art. One thing Stacie mentioned in her mini-course is that she has tried all these methods over the years herself, including licensing, selling direct to consumers, manufacturing and wholesaling, print on demand, commissions, trade shows, illustrating for publishing and more. She's done it and speaks from a place of experience. I'm really glad I've had the chance to get to know her better through Moda as a fellow designer.
Her registration is open through Tuesday June 23rd!
By the way, ALL the art on this post is by Stacie!
(And can I just tell you how much I love this scene in her house?? )
