Becoming a working artist has always been my dream. This is what finally got me on the path.
Raise your hand if you have big dreams of turning your art, photography, illustration, or creative hobby into the business and career you dream of? I have spent lots of years dreaming about becoming an artist and making “art” my work. I would dream of a successful art career that could support our family and I would be doing what I love.
And then I’d wake up. I’d spend my time on dishes, laundry, homework with the guys, being uber mom, and making sure we had dinner. All things that are really important to me.
And six months would pass. And I’d have done nothing to turn my dreams into reality.
Whether you’re wanting to grow your photography business while you juggle a job, or just get to making your artwork while having a family, dreams without plans are just dreams.
I needed a way to get from the dreaming to the doing, without dropping all of the important stuff in between.
Enter: The Flourish Planner.
This planner and accompanying course have been a game changer for me as a mom, handmade business owner and aspiring working artist.
I am not an affiliate for the planner, so this is just me sharing a something that I really hope helps you with accomplishing your creative goals – whatever they are.
This year I’ll be sharing more of the behind the scenes as I transition my business from handmade only to my true love: art and design. My hope is that it inspires and helps you on your creative journey.
One of the biggest pieces in my journey so far has been The Immersion Course with Bonnie Christine. But, as many of you know, this isn’t my first time through the course. Yes, it’s that good. But, it’s intense. Big dreams require big things. And even though Bonnie does such a good job of breaking things down and keeping them from being overwhelming and accomplishable, it was still up to me to make the time to get the work done.
As an affiliate for Bonnie’s Immersion Course this year, I wanted to offer a special bonus to those of you who have opened your inboxes and spend time with me here. I will never share things that I don’t genuinely believe in, because I hold this space sacred. If you are dreaming of becoming a working artist in a field that requires you to learn Illustrator, this course is solid GOLD.
My special bonus to you if you sign up through me is the piece that has put it all into place for me – The Flourish Planner.
I know you’re busy, and maybe aren’t sure whether you can squeeze things in. But if you really want to go from dreaming about an art career to making it happen, I know these two things can make that possible.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with questions by commenting on this post, or messaging me through Facebook or instagram! We creatives are in this together, and I’m here for you!
PS. The Immersion Course enrollment closes February 25th, and won’t reopen again until next year. I hear your creative heart calling like mine – you’ve got this!
