When we start our journeys as creative small business owners, we’re essentially left to our own devices to figure everything out. Our enthusiasm for our craft can quickly be overshadowed by administrative tasks and dread. So how do you ensure you stay educated, confident and most importantly, excited?
Creative business networking is the key to staying motivated and overcoming the loneliness of being a business of one. But networking for artists can feel weird and gross. Enter Kara Evans, owner of Kara Evans Photography. She’s here to reassure us creatives that networking doesn’t have to be boring and it’s actually the key ingredient to helping us artists keep it all together.
So why attend creative business networking events, like TuesdaysTogether? More than likely, your fellow artist business owners have been-there, done-that and are willing to walk you through it!
- Client emails
- Where to advertise
Networking with fellow creatives will help you build your business of one, into a creative community. From which you can ask questions, get tried and true advice, and best yet, make some lasting friendships with fellow artists who know the struggle is real.
Kara joined me in my latest YouTube series “What I Wish I’d Known” to talk about creative business networking and how networking for artists will help you overcome the loneliness often felt by solopreneurs.
The key takeaways from our interview are:
- You are not alone
- You get what you give, so be actively involved
