Spira1

"If you want to dig a big hole you have to stay in one place"

I have this idea to share what I learn during my "spira" lectures, here on my blog. Then that all of you can follow me during my 6 months in the project and also use some of the methods (if u feel like it). My Spira period will be very foucused on sales. Find clients to work with, show them my portfolio, then follow up and hopefully get some comission work. I will try and be as honest as possible about my own journey.
This week we where told to describe our vision:
What is it that I want to achieve and when will I have reached my goals?
I put up this "ladder" to visualise my goals, but I havn´t decided how long time each step will take me and if they are in the right order. Perhaps I will sell my first patterndesign before my first illustration?! But still, I know where to start (adverticing agencys here in Gothenburg, beware, I´m coming!) and where I want to go!
We have until next friday to prepare our first sales meeting that we will present infront of two coaches and then get feedback. So, stay tuned!

Alexandra Hedberg said...

vad fint ... nu kan vi så saktiliga sprida glädjen i att dela (känns lite läskigt fört) - och förändra världen!

jag länkade till dig nu apropå detta!

you know what: the postman just came with a parcel from sweden - your print has arrived! thank you so, so much! i'm so glad i won your giveaway, it's so incredibly beautiful... i'm going to frame it and will, i think, put it up in my newly decorated corridor.

thank you so much!

I always like seeing work in progress, I'm also interested in seeing how an artist promotes herself/himself. It is the most difficult part of our work, unless you have a very big mouth... :)
will be reading you with much interest. Break a leg!

aimee said...

fantastic! i'm really looking forward to following your progress. between your posts about goal setting/achieving and alexandra's art as business posts,
we are all getting an excellent education on how to market art. thanks for sharing with us!

p.s. you swedes are industrious people - especially the ones from gothenburg!

Kristina: Oh, great that you got the print:)
asphaltandair: I´m happy that you will follow me:)
Nthalie: yep, promoting is the worst part I think. I think this period of my life, with spira, will teach me alot about that and I´m happy to share!
Aimee: I had to look up that word "industrious" and now I have learned a great new word! I don´t know if gothenburg people are more industrious than others though...
