What is Career Coaching and why should artists get it?
Artists often spend a lot of time, money and effort perfecting their craft - whether that be acting, dancing, singing, writing, directing etc - yet they rarely invest anywhere near as much on the business side of things.
A Career Coach works with an artist to find an ongoing strategy which will give them the best possible chance of making a living from the arts. There are many different approaches you can use, including:
- understanding the industry and where to find opportunities
- understanding the economy of the arts and where you can make money
- building a brand around yourself
- building an online strategy and portfolio
- small business skills
- entrepreneurship and creating paid opportunities
- identifying tasks for professional development
- developing and implementing a task schedule
- accountability checks
Basically, a Career Coach can figure out what you need to do to be successful and help you make it happen!
I have developed a comprehensive coaching package where we work together for a period of 12 weeks. Not only will we create a strategy to get you the best results, we'll actually implement this strategy and measure your progress along the way.
This package involves a series of milestones, including face-to-face meetings, email/online communications, phone/Skype support, accountability checks and progress tracking. Here's the breakdown:
The coaching package costs $1,245. Most artists spend considerably more money on training courses - it's time to invest in the other side of "show business".
