Easier said than done. Choosing a logical career path as an up-and-coming artist can prove difficult, especially if you have educational or family expenses to worry about. Many young artists work a separate job in addition to their education and artwork. After all, your bills have to get paid somehow!

With so many factors in the real world pulling your attention away from your budding career as an artist, is there a logical approach to business growth that will reap immediate fulfillment and results?

Below are a few frameworks for you to consider. By no means are they all-encompassing or inadaptable; however, they should help young artists begin to think seriously about their career path and how they are can make their talents work for them.

Note especially the examples under each category. These individuals have mastered their business strategy. Keep in mind that marketing your art requires that you be an entrepreneur and think logically and creatively about how you can market your brand – not just expand it with a glitzy social media presence.



A Combination of Both

Whichever career path you choose, be flexible and remember to be comfortable in your own skin. If you show confidence, practice positive thinking, display a positive attitude and avoid procrastination, you will be able to level-up your skills and open yourself up to new opportunities you wouldn’t have otherwise considered or seen.

NOTE: FYI, I will only be posting one blog in the months of November and December because of the holidays. Have a great Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas, everyone!
