If you’re like most creatives, you have great ideas and see the big picture…

But how do you build the business structure around it so that you can serve your clients better and put more money in your pockets?

If you want to achieve real, lasting success – a consistently strong demand for your products and services and higher fees, leading to financial freedom and better control over your time – you’re in the right place.

What are some of the key challenges – both external and internal – that can face us as creative entrepreneurs? Here is an excerpt of an article on the site of Beate Chelette:

When You Hit The Wall by BalanceGirl

All Creative Entrepreneurs hit the wall sooner or later.

You know the wall I am talking about. The one that just won’t move. You push and push, working your butt off, talking to potential clients, sending out estimates—but it doesn’t budge. The wall remains standing, unaffected.

Jobs are not coming in fast enough, the ones you do land are not in the big leagues where you want to play, and profit margins are too tight. It’s like dancing the tango on a dollar bill. You keep moving but stay in one spot.

I remember when I hit my wall. It was a long time ago when I was a photography representative and a producer.

I knew I had a lot more in me and that I was playing too small. I kept thinking there had to be something else out there for me, something bigger and better. Frankly, I was ready to play with the big boys.

When you are ready to step up it means what you are doing now is too small.

When you change your energy to a higher vibration by playing bigger, all the small stuff has to break away and is mostly left behind.

Why? Because the small stuff is your security net and as long as it’s there, you have no reason to venture out too far and take risks…
