Win The Creative Entrepreneur Book
Update: CONTEST CLOSED NOVEMBER 2008. I'm so excited to share The Creative Entrepreneur book today because I spoke with my contact at Quayside Publishing Group and she has agreed to do a giveaway here on decor8 - 5 books for 5 very lucky readers (1 book per winner in other words)! I'll tell you how to enter below, but for now here's a little show and tell a little as this book is very, very special. I think it will appeal to MANY of you which is precisely why I wanted to approach the publisher about hosting a giveaway.
The Creative Entrepreneur: A DIY Visual Guidebook for Making Business Ideas Real by Lisa Sonora Beam (founder of The Creative Entrepreneur blog/website) takes creative types on a visual journey into their soul to dig deep, find the right path, and then once on it, how to get from point A to Z. This book just may help you to figure out "What To Do When You Don't Know What To Do", remember that series of posts here on decor8? If not, read them all here, they are VERY inspiring. If you found those helpful I think that you'll just love The Creative Entrepreneur because Lisa's words as an artist, teacher, business woman...and the journal that you'll need to create in order to successfully 'complete' this book will help you get on your feet heading in the right direction.
"The Creative Entrepreneur takes readers on an inner journey of creative exploration to discover how to make their dreams of creative livelihood real... it is a visual, project-oriented, step-by-step approach to business development especially for creatives."
Psst: If you live in the Bay area, Lisa is giving a workshop for $70 next month that you may like to attend, more information on it here. She'll also be giving another workshop in LA this March.
Want to win a copy of this book? I thought so. I will select 5 of you who comment on this post between now and Wednesday, the winners will be posted on Wednesday afternoon at 3pm EST and each will receive one brand new copy of this book from the publisher. The book is in English.
To enter: It's easy! Simply comment below (only one entry per household) with your thoughts on this subject: What are some constructive AND destructive aspects of your personality that are directly influencing your creative process currently? Discuss at as much length as you'd like but remember, enter only one time please.
UPDATE: THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED, WINNERS WERE ALREADY SELECTED AND NOTIFIED. THANK YOU.
