Episode 79: How to Maximize Every Opportunity to Help Your Art Business Grow with Allison Ford
Welcome back, and thank you for joining us for another episode of the Made Remarkable™ podcast. Today, I am over-the-moon excited to introduce you (if you don't already know her!) to the incredibly talented, creative, artist and entrepreneur, Allison Ford! Join us as we dive into Allison's journey in the art world, her collaborations with industry professionals, and her valuable insights on building a thriving creative career.
Allison shares her own experience of sending her artwork to an influential person in her industry, which led to her art being featured on a popular TV show. While she didn't receive payment for this particular opportunity, the exposure and visibility it brought her were invaluable. It's important to strategically consider collaborations and partnerships that can provide exposure and enhance your visibility.
Being a full-time artist is not always as it seems. Allison reminds us not to be excessively swayed by polished online profiles, as they may not reflect the complete reality of an artist's journey. Many artists, like Allison, have other jobs or income streams to support their creative endeavors.
Don't be discouraged by the challenges, but rather embrace them as part of the artistic journey. Make time for creativity, even if it's in small increments, and explore opportunities to share your story and art with the world.
Tune in now on your favorite podcast platform and join us in celebrating the power of art and creativity in our lives. ✨
