    Episode 43: Hitting Emotional Rock Bottom

    Episode 43: Hitting Emotional Rock Bottom

    She said I was incredible but was I?

    I mean sure it took something extra to study for college while your son is literally fighting for his life in ICU without breaking down … my own trauma from childhood had left me to compartmentalize just so I could function … I was strong the outside but internally I was falling apart and somewhere along the way I hit emotional rock bottom…

    Yep, I was homeless before this .. drinking too much before this and what have you, and none of those felt like rock bottom…

    Emotional rock bottom hits differently because all the layers you’ve so carefully crafted over the years come apart and what you are left with is your core being that you don’t even know because you’ve hidden from yourself for so long.

    I spend the last 20 years getting to know myself while slowly allowing other people to see me …

    Healing is hard but worth it!

    Episode 42: Core Memories + Mindset

    We all have core memories - some good and some not so-good and each of them influences us in different ways. Some leap us into action while others test our faith. I share two of mine and reflect on how they impacted my life.

    Episode 41: How to Sell your art

    Episode 41: How to Sell your art

    Welcome to "The Art of Sales," a podcast for artists looking to turn their passion into a profitable career. Today I am answering a question from a listener on how to sell your art.

    As an artist, creating your work is just half the battle. The other half is selling it. But, selling art can be a tricky business. There's no one-size-fits-all approach, and what works for one artist might not work for another. However, there are a few key strategies that can help you sell your art and make a living as an artist.

    The first step in selling your art is building a brand. A brand is an image and reputation that people associate with your work. By building a strong brand, you can create a connection with potential buyers, and differentiate yourself from other artists. Here are a few ways to build a brand for your art:

    Create a Website: Having a website is an easy and effective way to showcase your art and connect with potential buyers.

    Utilize Social Media: Social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter are great ways to promote your art and connect with potential buyers.

    Develop a Unique Style: Develop a signature style and visual aesthetic that sets your work apart from others.

    Another important step in selling your art is building a network of buyers, collectors, and galleries. Here are a few ways to build a network:

    Networking Events: Attend art fairs, exhibitions, and other events to meet other artists, buyers, and galleries.

    Online Presence: Utilize online platforms like Instagram and Artsy to connect with potential buyers and collectors.

    Reach out to Galleries: Look for galleries that specialize in art similar to yours and reach out to them to see if they would be interested in representing your work.

    Once you have a brand and a network in place, it's important to price your art correctly and promote it effectively. Here are a few tips:

    Research the Market: Research the market to see how other artists in your field are pricing their work.

    Promote your art: Use the various online and offline tools at your disposal to promote your art such as social media, website, email marketing, and even traditional methods like postcards and flyers.

    Be prepared to negotiate: Be prepared to negotiate on the price of your art, but don't sell yourself short.

    Episode 40: Become Confident

    Episode 40: Become Confident

    Welcome to "The Art of Confidence," a podcast for artists looking to build their self-esteem and overcome doubt in their work. Whether you're just starting out or you've been in the game for a while, we all experience moments of doubt. But, with the right tools and mindset, you can overcome those doubts and achieve success in your craft.

    Many artists struggle with self-doubt, and it can be a major obstacle to achieving success in their work. But, it's important to remember that doubt is a normal and natural part of the creative process. The key is to learn how to recognize it, understand it, and then take action to overcome it.

    The first step in overcoming doubt is understanding what it is. Doubt is a feeling of uncertainty or lack of confidence in one's abilities or decisions. It's important to realize that doubt is not necessarily a bad thing. It can be a sign that you're pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone, and that you're taking risks. The key is to learn how to recognize and understand doubt so that you can take action to overcome it.

    Once you understand doubt and can recognize it, you can take action to overcome it. Here are a few strategies for overcoming doubt:

    Acknowledge it: Recognize that doubt is a normal part of the creative process and don't be too hard on yourself.

    Reframe it: Instead of seeing doubt as a negative, see it as a sign that you're pushing yourself to grow and improve.

    Practice: The more you practice, the more confident you'll become in your abilities.

    Seek feedback: Get feedback from other artists, art educators, or friends and family. This can give you a different perspective on your work and help you see your strengths and weaknesses.

    Take action: Don't let doubt paralyze you. Take action and continue to work on your craft.

    And that's it for today's episode of "The Art of Confidence." Remember, doubt is a normal part of the creative process, and by understanding it, reframing it, and taking action, you can overcome it and achieve success in your work. Thanks for tuning in, and we'll see you next time!

    Episode 39: In the Spotlight is KPCreative

    Episode 39: In the Spotlight is KPCreative

    This year I made it my mission to spotlight members in my community and today I am going to shine the light on Kim Parkinson.

    She is a podcast producer, strategist, agency owner, and chicken tender! She loves to share podcasting with the world and she is on a mission to help womxn get out there and be heard! Podcasting is powerful and getting in front of the right audience can grow your business all over the world. She wants you to get heard in 2023!

    Kim's work is behind the scenes where she helps womxn entrepreneur get their messages out to the world. Whether that's helping them with their strategy to organize their thoughts with their CTA's or editing, producing, and creating the social assets for them to get the podcast into the world, she's here to help and guide them so they can be their best.

    I love her path simply because she started by teaching crafty classes to women in shops and online. She owned my own brick-and-mortar and had to leave it after burnout. Immediately after that closure, her family was thrown into a terrible situation with her niece's untimely death. She was in charge of making all the necessary arrangements and holding her family together. Which left her taking on a corporate job to make ends meet. Despite her hate for it, she prioritized her family. When the pandemic hit, she decided that starting a business again was the path for her. There's something about owning your own business and she loved it so much before and made it her mission to do it better this time. After taking a long look inside and at her resume, it struck me one day as she was listening to a podcast that that is what she wanted to do. Her husband is a musician and she had the tools necessary plus a great ear for sound, coupled with lots of marketing and strategy knowledge that her path presented itself.

    Kim gets her inspiration from her creative side. Years of teaching people to play with paint, ink, paper, and stamps really helps her stay in that creative zone.

    Her favorite source of inspiration is the linear lines of houses. But also, the outside. She enjoys spending time outside with her chickens, watching the hierarchy in the flock, and how it's ever-changing.

    She admits that the last year was a struggle and felt like she didn't have her act together and that she really struggled with terrible imposter syndrome, she felt like she was 'acting' like a podcast producer. Questioning if she really knows what she was doing and how to help others. It has taken a few mindset coaches and some personal reflection to realize that she, yes indeed always had it - and that learning to trust herself was just what she needed to do!

    She is a Self-projected Projector and is super driven by her own needs. She pulls from the men in her family as they help keep her going. While her 'boys' are grown, they still respect her and her dreams and goals. Showing them that it's possible to do anything is a huge driving force for her.

    Who hasn't faced one? During this last year, she had some tough moments. She had a client take advantage of her, they were paying me pennies for my work and when I finally decided to make a break from the relationship, they followed it up with a slew of chargebacks. While she did provide evidence she did the work, her bank sided with the client. It was a huge blow to her self-esteem, her business, and just her, personally. It actually was a call to a lawyer to find out the rights that helped get her out of the funk.

    Episode 38: Time Management for Creatives

    Episode 38: Time Management for Creatives

    Welcome to "The Art of Time Management," a podcast for artists looking to maximize their productivity and achieve their goals.  Whether you're a painter, a sculptor, or a musician, managing your time effectively is essential for achieving success in your craft. So, let's get started.

    Many artists struggle with balancing their passion for art with their daily responsibilities and obligations. They find themselves short of time to create and may feel frustrated or demotivated. However, with effective time management, artists can create a balance in their lives, be more productive and achieve their creative goals.

    A key aspect of time management for artists is setting priorities. The first step is to identify your most important tasks and goals, and then prioritize them according to their importance and urgency. This will help you focus on the things that really matter, rather than getting bogged down in less important tasks.

    Another effective time management technique for artists is time-blocking. This involves setting aside specific blocks of time for different tasks and activities. For example, you might set aside Monday mornings for painting, Tuesday afternoons for networking, and so on. This helps you stay focused and prevent distractions, and it also allows you to make the most of your time.

    Distractions are the enemy of productivity, and they're especially prevalent for artists who work in a home studio. To eliminate distractions, try to create a dedicated workspace that is free from distractions. You can also use tools like apps that block social media, or apps that help you focus on one task at a time.

    And that's it for today's episode of "The Art of Time Management." Remember, managing your time effectively is essential for achieving success as an artist. By setting priorities, using time-blocking, and eliminating distractions, you can create a balance in your life and be more productive in your work. Thanks for tuning in, and we'll see you next time!
