Today I want to introduce you to a project I recently had the opportunity to participate in. Spark and Inspire: 30 Days of Meaningful Insight to Spark Your Business and Inspire Your Soul is an ebook, the brainchild of Robin Norgren. I first met Robin in Kelly Rae Robert’s first Flying Lessons course, back in 2010. It’s been fun to follow her progress since the class. She is a wonderfully upbeat person and full of amazing energy, so it’s no wonder she created this great project.
Robin had this idea of sharing the insight and inspiration of creative entrepreneurs with those who are just starting out. She interviewed 41 creative entrepreneurs (I’m one!) with different questions, and has compiled their answers into an ebook. And not just a book to read, but a book to help you think about the questions for yourself and your business. Each question has the answers of at least 8 of the artists, and then a page is provided for you to write your own answer to the question. Answer one question a day over 30 days, and you will have some amazing insights and the start of your own plans. For me personally, participating has been a great experience, because it brought clarity to me as I answered the questions and had to think about what I would share with others. I’ve learned a lot from reading the responses of the other entrepreneurs too.
If you’ve been thinking about starting a creative business, whether it’s selling your art or any other creative idea is stuck in your brain, this ebook might be a good resource for you. I know many of you have thoughts along these lines, because I get questions and comments from you here and there via email. Imagine having 41 artists experiences to draw from and 30 questions answered. Where else can you get this kind of access and insight? I can’t think of any other place.
And guess what? You can win a PDF copy of the book here this week! Just leave a comment below by the end of the day 30 November to be eligible for the drawing.
Within these pages you will find the voices of over 40 creative entrepreneurs who run their businesses both online and in brick and mortar stores, who run workshops and sell in shows, who have a range of experiences and have been in business from 1 year to more than 25 years and who offer you no nonsense information on their processes and how they have been able to keep moving in tough economic times and how they have found a way to let good ideas go when the money was not in line with the dream. We are talking on a range of topics from collaborations to big leaps that did (and did not) come together as planned. We are talking about how to get at the soul of your business and how to stay excited about the work you offer the world.
