Part Seven: All Up In Your Business

Here we learn that being our own business has more concrete ramifications than just a healthy perspective.  Our work must be accounted for, compensated justly, and protected. We therefore educate ourselves about the Sole Proprietorship and its meanings. For those artist-entrepreneurs among us, we familiarize ourselves with options for starting a business entity.  Finally, we examine the pros and cons of conservatories, graduate programs, apprenticeships/mentorships/assistantships, and when to put an end to your non-paying opportunities.


  • Representation – do you need it, and which to choose?
  • Copyrighting and trade-marking your work.
  • The sole proprietor: Welcome to owning a business.
  • The New Freelance Artist:  Multiple Streams of Income based on various creative skills
  • The artist as entrepreneur: How to choose a business entity based on your Life Map
  • Subsidization and acquiring funds for your business
  • Educational investment:  Whether to invest in graduate and training programs (Cost vs. Return)
  • Apprenticeships/Internships/Assistantships: Beware the Golden-Handcuffs
  • When to stop taking non-paying work
