Last week I told you about a note on my desk that reads: “If you went out of business would people notice?“
(I want the answer to this question to be “Yes!” Without a doubt. I want people to notice.)
Another note I wrote down years ago says: “Transform your work into art”.
As a floral designer I think transforming your work into art is easy to take literally. I named my business Floral Artistry, I mean, it’s kind of obvious, right? I transform my work (ie my flowers) into art (ie my arrangements).
But what I really think drives this idea for me, transforming work into art, is how to apply this concept to the business aspects of our creative business.
I try to turn the mundane, the necessary, the client management, the thankless, into art.I practice being artful at running the business-side of my business.
The goal to “transform your work into art” can transcend the floral aspect of your business to encompass everything about your business; e-mails, proposals, meetings, phone calls, quotes, contracts, website design, you name it…because every single thing your customers experience defines your brand.
At their core, each of my courses is designed to help embrace the business-side of our work…but I’m going to take it a few steps further…
I’m going to walk you through exactly what I’ve done over the past 15 years as a small business owner to transform my work into an ideal customer experience in my newest course, The Art of Good Business, which starts January 9th-Feb. 6th.
You’ve heard me mention it before, but you can find details on my new course here!
Now’s the perfect time to invest in your business and focus on attracting more customers who don’t need convincing…because ideal customers already love you.
Why Act Now?
Registration closes Jan. 7th and payment plans are available until tonight, Monday Dec. 19th at midnight EST.
That’s just 1 day left to take advantage of the 2-payment plan option!
As a BONUS I am also including a free one-on-one strategy session with the first 10 floralpreneurs who register for the course.
Talking with floral designers is a true pleasure for me and I look forward to connecting with 10 floralpreneurs and learning more about your businesses.
