to LIGHT your PATH
to Sustained, Satisfying Success
Evaluate Your Resources & Assets
Using our tools and guidance, you will develop a detailed, personalized, in-depth art career resources assessment. It is impossible to design and implement a thorough business and marketing plan without first knowing your strengths, weakness, and assets. No two artists have the same skills, resources, and tools available.

You will find the proprietary artists’ annual income tool provides you with a range of your potential yearly income. These projections will give you various outcomes based on a combination of your annual expenses, sales, pricing, and production.
What you will have is a believable potential income based on realistic inputs from production, to costs, and sales. You will know what is possible given your current resource capabilities.
A comprehensive analysis and realistic evaluation of your skills, resources, and capabilities. The results will inform your actions in every part of the remaining program. The knowledge will give you confidence in understanding what you have available to get your work to market.
You improve efficiency when you know how to use your strengths to your full advantage and how to avoid the pitfalls of working on projects and with people who play to your weaknesses. Your included third-party Marketing DNA Test results will guide you on what types marketing works best for you. It will pinpoint your natural gifts and show you what marketing tasks that are best for you to outsource.
Getting There with Goals and Vision
With your arms around your resources and capabilities, your next step is to formulate a plan for your art career. Setting clear-cut, believable, achievable goals that align with your strengths and vision for your career are imperative.
You will use your goals to allocate your marketing resources. Goals become touchstones you can use to help you assess valuable opportunities, and to avoid tempting, but non-essential choices. Keeping on your determined path is the key to staying efficient, sane, and prosperous.
Imagine your career path now has a genuine roadmap—a detailed framework of what is most important to you, and how you achieve what is truly important. You will follow your roadmap and use it to turn your career dreams into reality.
The insights, information, mind maps, and 90-day marketing segments you create at this stage form an outline of your career. These are the tools you will use to know what actions and methods are needed for you to achieve success in the next stages. You will get encouragement, answers to questions and more in your weekly group coaching calls.
Review, Choose, and Set Up
You have options to sell your work as originals, reproductions, and other formats. What you choose is your basic product mix. Your chosen media will dictate the complexity and breadth of your product mix. Your product mix will influence and help determine your distribution model. Direct patronage is the suggested method of primary distribution.
With direct patronage, you make selling your work to buyers directly your primary distribution channel. It is the best choice for most artists. That is because it is the only channel where you have full control of your distribution.
Other channels require your reliance on third parties including offline and online galleries, publishers licensing agents, and more. Third parties naturally, always place their self-interest first. They are expensive to use.
Working with galleries ties up twice as much inventory to earn the as through direct sales. You earn only 50% on retail. Galleries often discount too fast and too much because they don't have trained sales staff. They delay payments.
Because a retail gallery is risky business, your inventory is never 100% secure in terms of knowing it will be returned if something bad happens.
Despite the drawbacks, it is understood, for many reasons, you may need or want to work with third-party distributors, such as galleries and publishers.
The goal for distribution through them is to keep them as secondary means of marketing work. That way you are never at the mercy of others who naturally put their best interest first in dealing with you. Should you want or need to develop relationships with galleries, publishers, or licensors, we'll work with you to create best practices for selecting, pitching and working with them.
