Why Am I So Passionate About Teaching Silk Painting Business?

One day in 2012, I received an inspiring email from someone eager to turn their home-based craft hobby into a flourishing business. This message ignited my passion to share my journey of establishing and growing a silk art business, which I wholeheartedly live, love, and now teach. Textile art and craft offer incredible growth potential, with applications spanning countless products and services. Through this blog, I aim to inspire you to experiment, play, and, most importantly, grow in your unique way. In the upcoming posts, I'll reveal what I've learned, hoping to connect, assist, and continue learning alongside you.

Artist vs. Manager

If you're contemplating making a living from your art, it's vital to believe that it's possible. This belief will be your guiding light as you take on the managerial responsibilities that come with it.

I've observed that some of my artist friends have benefited immensely from having a partner who handles the business tasks, allowing them to focus solely on their creative endeavours. However, if you're a true, independent entrepreneurial spirit, you might relish taking care of both aspects.

Starting a craft business involves several facets, including navigating regulations and requirements, which can vary by location. The local authorities are your best source of information for these specifics. Yet, there's one overarching key to your successful future – an unwavering passion for this new adventure. Passion and enthusiasm will forge a connection with the energy, persistence, and creativity required. With these qualities, you'll be living the life many only dream of! Have an exhilarating day!

From Hobby to Business

Indulging in your creativity as a hobby is a fantastic way to explore your talents and discover your passions. However, there comes a time when you may want more than creative satisfaction—you want financial rewards. That's when you'll transition from hobbyist to business owner.

The litmus test for this shift is straightforward: if you're solely "feeding" your craft, it's a hobby. But if it's reciprocating and "feeding" you, congratulations, you've ventured into business territory.

In the next post, I'll guide you on how to tip the scale and make your creative pursuit a profitable venture. Have a fantastic day!

Little Exercise for Your Creativity

How big can you dream? Remember, you can achieve anything your mind can conceive. So, how grand can you envision your silk art business becoming?

Take a few moments to explore these thoughts for fun: "I can imagine having [insert your vision] and being [describe your role] doing [list your activities]."

Wouldn't it be amazing to earn [your income goal] annually and possess [your desired assets]? Engage in this exercise, and watch your imagination transport you to places you've never been before.

Playing this little imaginative game will unleash inspiration and fuel your creativity. You'll experience the exhilarating energy of inspiration that everyone wishes for.

Stay tuned for the next post, where I'll delve into the distinction between inspiration and motivation.

Motivation vs. Inspiration

Inspiration is like a magnetic force pulling you into action. When you're inspired, each step unfolds effortlessly, and you feel joyful and eager. Such actions are not only pleasant but also incredibly effective. The positive emotions of joy and enthusiasm infuse you with energy, persistence, and a never-ending well of inspiration that makes your journey smooth and enjoyable.

Motivation, on the other hand, often feels like a push. It's your mind urging you into action, often accompanied by a sense of obligation or stress, especially in the corporate world. However, it doesn't have to be this way.

As a crafts and arts proprietor, you'll encounter both "love to do" and "have to do" tasks in your business life. In my next post, I'll reveal the key to transforming every task into inspired action, ensuring you have more fun with your business responsibilities. Stay inspired!
