In business your first plan may not work, the second or third either. Working for a company becomes a delightful thought. Listing the pros becomes easy, not worrying about rent or restocking materials, paying off debts, dealing with some of the most unsatisfying people and all the other perks. All the pluses of being an employee seems favorable but some of us are trapped in our profession. …….like me. There’s nothing else I know how to do better.
Ten years in a single field of work fills your mind with a wealth of knowledge and it’s an investment, one which sadly may not pay off until generations later. When current plans fail you have to analyze and try to maybe adapt the business in order to remain competitive or in business for a matter a fact.
My plans failed and left me dismal for while but a phone call to an art consultant in California breathed a new strategy into play. It took a few months for his expertise to digest. It was just one question he asked that stuck in my mind.
I would make a great employee but I’ll be a better artist.
