Many creative people look at starting a business and think, “I can’t do that.” Creativity is a right-brain activity – based on inspiration, passion and experimentation. Business is all left-brain stuff – spreadsheets, sales projections and distribution channels. Consultant Jennifer Lee counters that running a business has a lot in common with painting a picture. She guides the business-shy artist or creative person through a right-brain approach to launching products, winning customers, increasing income and hiring staff. You won’t mistake this for a marketing textbook. It’s playful, with quirky buzzwords, exuberant illustrations, and activities involving colored paper, scissors and paste. Lee’s approach may not be for everyone, but getAbstract recommends her cogent, fun-filled advice to creative entrepreneurs in any field.
In this summary, you will learn
- How creativity fuels your business growth,
- How to attract your “perfect customers” and
- How to sustain your business through continual improvement.
