Indigo Creative Consulting: Bridging the Gap Between Art and Business
MAKE YOUR SIDE HUSTLE YOUR MAIN HUSTLE!
One of the hardest parts of starting or growing a Creative Side Hustle is knowing how to merge ART with BUSINESS. And then, once you do, it feels impossible to keep up with all of the demands on a small business owner: Social Media, Websites, what services to use, how to setup a store, what to charge, wholesale vs. retail, marketing, selling, events, networking, advertising…and that’s all before you actually get to CREATE.
My job is to take all of the noise and turn it into a plan for you (with a checklist!). What should you do first? What are the important steps you don’t want to miss? And then, how do you manage all of the day-to-day elements that go into growing and scaling your business,
Because let’s claim it, you WILL be successful!!
EXPERIENCE AND TESTIMONIALS
I spent 15 years grinding at a 9 to 5 in Tech and Information Services…I worked as a Corporate Trainer, Sales Account Manager, Consultant, and Data Analyst before leaving my W-2 job for good in June of 2017. Prior to leaving, I spent 2 years building my side hustle, The Indigo Tribe, from the ground up, and knew it was time to dedicate myself to it 100%. Since making it my full-time focus, I have been fortunate to build a successful wholesale business with my products sold around the country—even at the gift stores at LAX Airport. Along the way, I found myself assisting other creatives with lots of different projects that utilized the breadth of skills I gained during my time in Corporate America. From editing a memoir, to assisting on photo shoots, doing research, and turning their data into useful and actionable knowledge, the projects are always unique!
Here are what some of those people have to say:
