The Key to Art Business Success
Martina's Business Articles:
As an artist, your business is likely somewhat different from those run by other professional entrepreneurs; and the key difference is probably that your business is also your passion. And that’s what makes offering art business assistance just a bit more challenging! However, here are three guidelines for anyone that wishes to meet with success in his or her art business:

But that is placing the card before the horse. Most people tend to waste far more time by neglecting this kind of investment and never reach their goals in the end nor have the finances to pursue what they love so much, their art.

Keep in contact with your peers, as other successful artists in your niche may have already encountered, and successfully dealt with, challenges that you are likely to face in the future. Turning to such individuals and groups within your network, for art business assistance, will save you a lot of time and trouble in addressing those similar challenges.
It's All About Evolving and Learning
No single person, group or website can provide you all the art business tips you’ll ever need. However, as you run your own business, you’ll start learning a lot from real-life experience. Success in business for artists comes from learning from experiences, and adapting business models to include those lessons learned.
