Your Creative Career, Coffee n' Notes, Book Review

Blurb

Anna Sabino is an artist, but certainly not a starving one. She wasn’t born into a wealthy family, didn’t inherit money from a distant relative, and doesn’t have a rich husband. But she made it as an entrepreneur, as a single woman, and most important, as an artist.

In Your Creative Career, she shows her fellow artists and creatives how to build a business that reflects their talent and true calling while generating serious cash. Whether the goal is to build an empire and be financially free, create a lifestyle business, or just to have more time, Your Creative Career guides you through every aspect of creative entrepreneurship.

If you want to start your creative career, transition into it, or give it a boost, this book is a must read that features:

Proven systems and strategies to create ideally priced products that keep selling.

The importance of going through all the steps of making it from idea inception and execution to branding and distribution.

The importance of transitioning from artistic solitude to collaborative, creative entrepreneurship.

The most effective marketing and PR methods adjusted to the new reality of short attention spans and information overload.

Review
3 Stars

There was (and still is) great hype over this book and I truly wanted to love it more.

At first, I will say that I really loved the author’s take on creating your own life and not settle just to feel comfortable. I love the practical side of this book and how the author explains things in simple but really helpful ways.

This could be a wonderful guide to a someone who wants to dive into a creative career or just being more creative in life. If you want to start blogging, writing or doing anything that is creative, this book will inspire you and give you some great pointers on how to start your journey with a creative career and I loved that the author did give a lot of information on the business side of your creative life.

After a few chapters, I started to get frustrated and even a little bit annoyed. I found myself disagreeing with the author, her approach was too structured and I think it didn’t suit my views. By the end, the subject repeated over and over and for me, it was too much.

If you are a beginner or you want to start a creative career, this book will definitely help you and in it, you will find great advice to get you started on your creative journey.
