How to Write an Artist Statement

How to Write an Artist Statement

Marketing isn’t just for entrepreneurs. There’s selling yourself, whether that’s as a candidate for a job, in the professional world, or even as an artist! As someone who has worked with several artists over the years, I’m sharing how you can write an artist statement to show off your work and market yourself.

An artist statement is a brief summary of one artist's practice. It's used to introduce the artist to readers and collectors -- both to understand the artist's unique style and discoverability. 

A Look at The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg

A Look at The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg

I need to be more organized.

I need to go to bed earlier.

I need to be better at following up with clients.

Sound familiar?

Identifying the bad habits we need to change is easy for most people. Give them a pen, paper, and a minute or so, and they’ll give you a list of 5-10 things that they wish they could change. And many of us try our best to make improvements on our own -- whether it’s starting every January with a fresh batch of resolutions or simply making another “diet starts Monday” epiphany. 

If you’re looking for a book that will give you a step-by-step plan for eliminating those bad habits and instilling good habits into your life, “The Power of Habit” by Charles Duhigg isn’t the book for you.

Rise: the Membership

“I’m an ambitious woman in my 20’s/30’s and I’m ready to take on the world!

…but first can someone teach me how to be an adult?”

Sound like you? The truth is, we learn so much information in college about how to think and grow, how to tackle our careers and actually do the work — but we’re never taught the skills to thrive in the real world. Budgeting? Meal planning? Career coaching? Negotiating? (Also fun topics, like sex, astrology, and more?)

Definitely weren’t covered in my Ethics 101 class.

That’s where Rise: the Membership steps in.

How to Navigate Politics in Your Business

How to Navigate Politics in Your Business

Okay, this is a different blog post than what I usually write, but I’ve heard a lot of fellow entrepreneurs discussing the topic lately. How do politics fit in with business? Or do they at all?

I think it’s pretty obvious to say we currently live in a society where anything political has the opportunity to get heated pretty quickly. The United States is a country divided and extremely, incredibly divided at that.

So how do we set the line between who we are and what we stand for, and our businesses? When is it appropriate to mix the two, and when we do, how do we do it gracefully?

How You Can Find Gratitude in Discomfort

How You Can Find Gratitude in Discomfort

Let’s be frank: They say that 50% of the life we live in this world doesn’t fall on the positive side of the spectrum. That means for every fun evening at a restaurant with friends, there’s a TV dinner alone at home. For every three days vacation, there’s three spent with a cold or the flu. For every positive experience or action in our life, there is an equal and opposite negative one. Now, that can simply be an hour spent bored on your phone or a meal burned on the stove — it doesn’t have to be something terrible. But it isn’t something positive.

Entrepreneur Feature: Nichole Starkman of Americana Cakes and Sweets

Today I’m excited to share the courageous story of one of my best friends and entrepreneurs. If there’s one thing that all of us entrepreneurs share, it’s the feeling of fear when we come across a new challenge or risk.

That’s why I’m so excited to share Nichole Starkman of Americana Cakes and Sweets and her journey to entrepreneurship. Not only is she an inspiration in terms of being brave enough to bet on herself in an uncomfortable location, but she also shows that sometimes the journey to entrepreneurship isn’t immediate, or linear, or intuitive. It’s about betting on yourself and jumping even in the face of fear.

Top 5 Entrepreneur Tools I Can’t Live Without

Top 5 Entrepreneur Tools I Can’t Live Without

When I meet with clients, I try to give them all the information I possibly can. I tell them all the tactics I’ve tried, the tips and tricks I’ve learned, and the tools I use to run my business.

So why not share with all of you?

I try to be as open and honest with the behind-the-scenes of my business as I can with all of you. So here’s a list of my must-have business tools (and why they’re the ones I turn to time and time again).

How a Life Coach is Different From a Friend

How a Life Coach is Different From a Friend

When I first started coaching, I never anticipated the amount of people who would compare what I did to a friend they have, or a relationship they’ve cultivated. And I often hear the question “Is it like that?”

So let’s clear things up once and for all.
