Thrive! The Creative’s Guidebook to Professional Tenacity

 

The book is complete, and I want to share it. This book grew out of a class I taught called Professional Practices at the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts | Arizona State University (2010 – 2016). This book is filled with all of the class content but bigger than that  – it is a guide to encourage all creatives in their confidence and to get brave.

Rooted in the author’s experience as an entrepreneur and creative professional, Thrive! The Creative’s Guidebook to Professional Tenacity helps those in creative fields acquire the skills and tools needed to successfully market their talents and manage their careers. Speaking directly to how creatives think about and conduct business, the text is filled with engaging and accessible exercises, strategies, and tips.

The six units cover branding, searching for clients, asserting the value of creative work, pitching your talents, leveraging social and other media, managing finances and taxes, and more. Each chapter includes business terms creatives need to know, action tasks to prepare for the professional work ahead and specific guidance about how the content can be applied in the real world.

Fresh and innovative, Thrive! The Creative’s Guidebook to Professional Tenacity understands the importance of speaking to creative professionals in their own language and showing them how to leverage their outside-the-box skills to achieve professional and financial success. The book is ideal for anyone studying or working in the fields of art and design, or any creative endeavor.

 

Thanks for sharing with others!

AZ Sci Tech Festival

I am hosting five panels today at the AZ Sci Tech Festival. You can still attend and register on site at the Mesa Art Center.

I am also hosting a lunch meet up at the festival for those who want to create more experiences out of their STEAM and Sci-Tech events. HERE

 

At Laboratory5 Inc. We bring together all elements of STEAM and tie them up into a package to promote the work each individual is doing in their fields to celebrate this work. We produce experiences so that those unfamiliar with the glorious, quirky, nerdy qualities of all areas of STEAM can be explored as an adventure to explain these fields.
