Description

Well hello there! It’s Bonnie Christine and for the past 13 years I have been consistently switching hats between artist, entrepreneur, educator and leader which leads to me where I am today. I am so excited to start sharing it with you in this podcast that I've had on my heart for years! Starting November 15th you can count on hearing from me twice a week - once on Tuesday for a shorty business breakthrough episode where I’ll share with you a simple mindset shift, habit or breakthrough that you can implement in your own life right away. Then again on Thursday for an episode where we’ll take a deeper dive into a strategy that I’ve used in my own creative business or perhaps I’ll take you behind the scenes to look at what we’re doing right now. Long gone are the days where creatives struggled to make a living. The truth is that today we have everything we need at our fingertips to Flourish - and that’s what this podcast is all about. I’m sharing with you the simple steps that I’ve used to build my business that gives so much - and how you can build yours, as well. Together, we can do this. I cannot wait to share all that we have in store for you, every week, twice a week, right here on the Professional Creative Podcast.

Episode 5: “I did it.” How Deleting Doubt Can Change Everything.
16:05

Do you ever wish that you could just delete doubt? I certainly do. Doubt comes up a lot in the creative industry. As a creative entrepreneur, you will experience doubt too—because being a means that our success is directly related to how good of an idea we have. But doubt can’t stop us. In this episode, we’ll talk about how you push through doubt and fear to the other side—success. "Of course, we're going to doubt ourselves, we're going to doubt our ability, we're going to doubt our expertise. We're going to doubt every little part of it. But does that mean that we stop? No."

Are you ready to map out your path to success? If you are listening to this episode, you are likely an achiever. But maybe you struggle with the right things to get done. If we’re able to choose the right things, we can make considerable progress on our goals. Successful people practice deep thinking to find clarity and purpose. In this episode, you’re invited to come alongside me as I map out the story of my own success and invite you to map your own. We’ll talk about how to schedule vision-storming sessions for deep thinking and all the key components for mapping your own unique success path including our big goals and the milestones, rewards, and even setbacks to plan for along the way. "Everyone has these loops, but oftentimes people fall off at the loop—They fall off at the failure—and their self story is that they tried and failed. But not you. You are not going to fall off at the loop. You are going to keep going." This episode includes a printable map to success for you to download and complete. Download it here and follow along!

Episode 3: How Much Do You Really Make From Just Your Artwork?
11:41

In Episode 1 I vulnerably shared my business revenue from the last 13 years. But many people ask how much I make from art licensing alone. I will never forget the moment that I learned what surface pattern design is and that it was actually an incredible career opportunity. I mean—doodle and draw for a living? Yes, please. Many of you also want to know if you can only design and make a living from it. In this episode, I’m going to be completely transparent about my overall licensing income alone—but you also need to know that I haven’t pursued licensing my own work in the last few years, though I’m working on a new portfolio right now. In this episode, we’ll discuss what art licensing is, how licensing builds over time, and playing the long game. You’ll hear my personal story, but I hope you’ll also learn what’s possible for you.

Episode 2: What If I'm Alone In This?
21:47

Today's FREEBIE: https://www.professionalcreative.com/blog/2

7 Ways To Encourage The Support Of Others As creative entrepreneurs, while we may often feel alone, the truth is we struggle with many of the same things. How do you handle feeling alone without a lot of support in your life for what you want to do? In this episode, we’ll talk about seven ways you can find support in your journey as a creative entrepreneur, even if you feel like no one in your life really gets it right now. These things are really hard, and having a big dream or goal is scary. It’s intimidating to talk about because the fear of failure sets in. When you think sharing your dream might not be met with the support you need, it can make it feel even more vulnerable. “We are capable of empowering those around us to support us better and encourage us.”
