It’s officially the holidays so this is your friendly reminder (from someone who still needs it) to not forget who the hell we are, ladies! Here’s what I’m doing to remember my spirit: 1. I get in the car (it can be parked but no kids allowed) & turn the radio ALL the way up with my favorite tunes. Now this may be controversial but it’s important: NO HOLIDAY MUSIC allowed in this moment. Only music that makes me want to shake my booty, dance in my seat, & flail about. If I’m feeling generous, I’ll wave to strangers while singing at the top of my lungs. They’re always a little surprised! 2. Read books that have NOTHING to do with the holidays. Current book I’m reading (and IMO should be required reading): “Pussy: A Reclamation” by Regina Thomas Hauer. Just👏🏽Read👏🏽It! And 3. Paint. Seriously y’all. Just do it for you! Create all the fugly Art you want, but just keep creating!! Our mental health depends on it! Then I resume my Holidays accordingly. Please tag a friend with too much on her plate. She may need this friendly reminder!
Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Can anyone relate? @thedrewlynch you’re hilarious! “Where’s my wine?” “Who ate all my deviled eggs?” “Don’t touch that!” What’s your favorite line?
I don’t feel very worky today!! In part because it’s the weekend and in part because I’m decorating for the holidays. But I’m so grateful for all the questions from folks about the Art Biz Mastermind WHICH IS ALREADY 1/2 FULL!! The most common question I get is “How Much is it?” So I’m going to do what every single marketing person tells me NOT to do and tell you the price. WHY? Because: 1️⃣ NO ONE is the boss of me! and 2️⃣ I soooo believe this program is worth Every. Single. Penny. The price, if paid by Nov 30, is $4797 (payment plan available) Or After Nov 30 (if there are any spots left) the price goes up. Is that a lot of money? Yep. Is it the price of selling only a few paintings? Yep. Does it shave YEARS off of learning this stuff all by yourself (see post from Nov 19 for deets)? YEP! Does it give you an incredible support system for life? Yep. Are YOU worth investing in? Oh HALE yes!! Is it for everyone? Nope. It’s for those fully committed to their Art Biz who are thoughtful and passionate and fun...(it’s an asshole-free zone! 😋) Ok so there. I’ve gone and done it. It’s out there. But just like I don’t apologize for the price of my paintings, I don’t apologize for the price of this program. I want to walk alongside you and help you in as intimate a way as I can (ok maybe not THAT intimate, lol) because I Love seeing people SOAR! If you think it might be for you, go to the link in my profile for more info and to get the application. Got more questions? Leave them below or send me a DM. Have an incredible day! ☀️~ Jodie P.S. we get started Jan 11 and this is only 1 of 2 times I’m offering it in 2021.
Never underestimate the power of NEKKID streaking through the house with the music blasting while laughing & holding onto all the bouncy parts. #covidcantcancelfun
People are always surprised when I tell them this... But photo shoots make me really uncomfortable! And yet... When we’re building a brand (and yes, you and your art are a brand) it is HELLA important that we have high quality photos of not only our art, but of ourselves. People don’t just buy the art, they also want to know the artist. Don’t believe me? Ask yourself who your favorite artists are and I bet you know something personal about them. Maybe it’s where they live or their sense of humor, but something has resonated with you about them their art. I’ve just opened up applications for my Art Biz Mastermind and Mentorship. It’s a HIGH TOUCH, low tech program that lasts 12 weeks. It’s all about the business side of the Art Biz AND it’s a ton of fun! Here’s what we cover: 1. Know your “Why” (it’s the key to our art) 2. YOU are the brand (digging into what makes you and your art stand out among the masses. 3. Mindset & Money blocks. Our energy is everything! 4. A website that sells 5. Writing a bombass Artists Statement & Bio 6. Think Beyond the Gallery : 15 different ways to market and sell our art 7. Submitting to Galleries (I share embarrassing personal emails about what works and what doesn’t)😬 8. Social Media (we spend 2-3 weeks on this important tool) 9. Pricing 10. Packing & Shipping 11. Creating a sales plan & strategy 12. Building a team: who to hire and when And soooo much more! But the best part of this program isn’t even learning all this stuff. The best part is the relationships, the fun, and the camaraderie! As artists, our work is inherently solo. Having a community that supports us, cheers us on, and shares info & life...that’s priceless! If this sounds like something you’re ready for, go to the link in my bio “Learn More about the Art Biz Mastermind.” It’s by application only & I’m choosing the next 10-12 folks NOW for the class that starts in Jan. This is not a cheap program but it is well worth the price based on the personal & professional transformation. Maybe 2021 is the year you’re ready to invest in yourself & in your future? Got questions? I’m happy to answer and I’d love for you to join me!
Join me today at 1:00 CST! Bring your questions! I’ll also share with you some of the tips that I’m teaching in my Art Biz Mastermind & Mentorship that’s helping these artists move the needle in their business. C’mon!! Don’t miss it!
Some days, I just sit with tears rolling down my cheeks. Not because I’m sad, but because I’m so freakin’ grateful. Why? Well, lots of reasons, but mostly because being an artist and making a damn good living at it, is the bomb!! And next to painting, helping artists experience their own biz growth (and personal growth, cuz hello...we ARE our business) sets my face on fire!! If you’re not aware, I lead an Art Biz Mastermind & Mentorship group and these folks are doing great things! If you’re an artist and could use some biz tips, Tomorrow I’m going LIVE here on IG at 1:00 CST to share with you some of the business tips that we’ve been talking about in the group. I hope you’ll join me and Bring your questions! You can also leave your question in the comments below and I’ll answer them tomorrow. Don’t worry, I’ll post the replay here if you can’t make it.
