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!

I was fortunate to be asked to write a chapter for a book by my hero by Jay Conrad Levinson who was the founder of Guerrilla Marketing. I have long been a fan of his work and when he passed away in 2013 I thought that would be the end of his voice but luckily he left essays behind and his wife Jeannie Levinson took up the cause. 

Jay Conrad and Jeannie Levinson, were the creators of the term Guerrilla Entrepreneur. They described them as men and women who think outside-the-box. In their words: He’s embraced new ways of thinking, new ways of working, new ways of living. He well knows that he’s left behind an age characterized by a worship of profits, a surfeit of working hours, and a neglect of family and self.

I am thrilled that the book is out and my essay is included. Here is the link to grab a copy for yourself:
