i might look calm - but inside my head there is a really messy art room, she said with a tranquil smile
I’m having a blast with creating at the moment – but it’s also hard work and i sense that i have to put in the effort if i want to live a creative life, to realize my dreams and goals.
It’s not just the art works that i need to work on but also the business plan. Although i want to step out of the formal world and make most of my own rules, i will still be operating within that some world.
Some of the rules will have to stay, the basics – like having a business plan, a budget and keeping good records. I like the idea of having me being the business – rather than ‘having’ a business. Because i create – the creativity is the business and that happens to be me. I suppose it works slightly differently from having a tangible business, yet at the same time it can’t be nebulous. I suppose it’s a bit like being a social entrepreneur – instead I’m a creative entrepreneur. This idea needs further development and some more thought, but it’s a start.
