Who are you on your way to “becoming” who you want to be? Often, when we have a big dream goal ahead of us, we just want to be at the finish line and not in the process. In this post, I am going to help you slow down and focus on how to be a creative entrepreneur.
If you take a close look, there are many characteristics that you already possess. You are constantly using your passion towards a creative means.
There are a few questions that I would like you to consider as you decide whether you are ready to call yourself a “creative”, “artist” or “creative entrepreneur”
- What gets you excited for the day as you wake up and get out of bed?
- What are the first thoughts that enter your mind?
- Name the one thing you cannot wait to do each day?
- Describe what have you always loved to do?
- What do you love to talk about to others?
- If you could have a whole day to yourself, what would you do?
Part of the magic of being a creative is choosing to believe that I already am what I am aiming for. I choose to believe I am already a Surface Pattern Designer.
Sometimes we wait for the label to tell us who we are. What about you telling others who you are and not let the label define you. I would challenge you to step outside of waiting for the label to but placed but for you instead to give is to yourself as a early gifting of who you are becoming.
Also, as creatives, you and I can be held back due to negative thinking. It might look like comparing your ability to others or not having the confidence to pursue your creative talent or putting your creations out into the world.
But what if you could change that? I have just the freebie for you – The FREE 5 Day Challenge. Watch this short video to learn more.

As fun as it is to create just when you feel like it (and trust me I have tried that for years), you need to have goals and a plan. With a plan there is a sense of completion, accomplishment; the reminder that you are headed towards seeing your big dream goal realized.
If you are saying YES to getting clear and focused with your goal, I have the perfect signature online course for you.
This online course is designed to create the foundation for an ongoing, affirming mindset. With that foundation comes the ability to achieve consistent, productive goal minded outcomes.
The first half of the course is the foundation and theory. This section will define your value system, challenge negative mindset and build an affirming mindset. It will offer ways to deal with discouragement and nurture your creative process. You will gain the confidence in your ability to achieve your goal.
The second half of the course will be putting theory into practice; developing and practicing tools (goal trackers, mood boards, brainstorming, creating your community). These tools will sustain your creative endeavor beyond the course. You will translate these new beliefs and habits into daily, weekly and monthly actionable steps.
Check out the Intro “webinar” for Believe & Achieve for all the details on this signature, one of a kind course for Creative Entrepreneurs just like you.
The journey of how to be a creative entrepreneur being more important than the destination, really is true. There is so much growth and learning in the journey, although it is painful and slow. As I look back at all of the triumphs and failures in the last three years, I know that many if not all of them prepared me.
I look forward to hearing more about your journey in becoming the creative entrepreneur you dream of. I challenge you to start now; declare in the comments who you are on your way to becoming!
