For the foreseeable future, I’m dedicating the Art Biz Podcast to what you can do now to stay in control of your art business. It’s just going to be me talking. Episodes will be shorter and more frequent. There will be no music. No bells and whistles. My goal is respond to the situation quickly and to keep you going at the expense of a fancy, professionally engineered audio program. I hope you understand.

I need you to be part of the conversation. I need to hear from you! Please join me on Instagram using #ArtBizNow and bookmark ArtBizNow.com as a hub for art business resources during this crisis.

So, staying in control of your art business. It sounds like a simple theme, but it’s profound.

So much of what is happening right now is beyond your control. You can’t control how many people get sick. You can’t control how fast the virus spreads. You can’t control what our leaders do (though you can vote and I strongly urge you to do that).

But you can control how you react. It’s critical for your well being that you pay attention to what is in your control. This is going to make you feel much more optimistic about the future, and give you fuel to carry on.

I want to begin this series by discussing how you spend your time every day, hour, and minute—even if you have kids at home.

In this episode, I discuss why having structure is so important right now and review 6 activities that you can schedule in order to stay in control of your art business.

This episode is sponsored by my signature business-building program, the Art Career Success System, a program I have perfected for more than 17 years working with artists.

All of the lessons you learn in the Art Career Success System are tasks you will do over and over again throughout your art business and career. That’s why it’s a SYSTEM.

In the ACSS you will build a strong foundation using my video and audio lessons, worksheets, and transcripts. And you will be part of a community of artists who are forward-thinking and forward-moving.

Cynthia Morris helps writers, artists and entrepreneurs make their big dreams a powerful reality. Cynthia is a certified coach, teacher, author and artist. In 1999, she founded Original Impulse, a boutique coaching company that empowers creative people to focus, follow through and finish projects that matter. The author of the The Busy Woman’s Guide to Writing a World-Changing Book, Cynthia has published seven e-books on writing and creative travel as well as the Paris historical novel, Chasing Sylvia Beach.

She is a watercolor artist and visual journal keeper who uses art as a way to express joy and consistently access inspiration.

Back in 2016 Alyson sat down with Cynthia to discuss an affliction many of their artist-clients suffer from: Impatience. Especially around making money.

This was the first episode in what became the Art Biz Podcast.

The conversation started with a consideration of the pitfalls of impatience, and quickly launched into a variety of topics that all have to do with what it takes to be a professional artist.
