The Ultimate Guide for Turning Talent and Creativity Into A Real CareerBook - 2010
Shows women how to turn their talents into a money-making career, explaining how to spark one's creativity, narrow down the correct career lifestyle, and garner publicity for a successful career.
Author Katharine Sise has certainly “walked the walk” of a creative entrepreneur, as she created her own jewelry line that has won the praise of celebrities and the fashion world. Here she provides ideas for sparking one’s creative talent (through meditating and journaling), and narrowing down what career lifestyle is right for each reader. She also shares insider tips on the realities of navigating a creative career and handling a business—such as how to brand yourself and how to build a platform and garner publicity. Katharine debunks the myth of the “starving artist” and shows how one can turn inspiration into a profitable livelihood.
Sise, who launched a jewelry line in her early twenties, explains how creativity and talent can be turned into a successful career at any age. Incorporating exercises and questions throughout, she draws on interviews with successful women who have careers in a variety of fields to describe how to assess talents and evaluate job options; face fears, change careers, or quit a job; improve resumes, networking, interviews, and salary negotiations; get promoted; launch a freelance career or small business; create a business plan; market oneself; price products; and other aspects.
