Featuring tangible advice and inspiring interviews with artists and industry experts, you will learn how to brand, market, and sell your art the smart way.


In this episode Rachel Wilkins, founder of Conception Arts shares on how, as an artist, herself she managed to overcome procrastination which keeps most talented people from moving forward, and created consistent habits that still help grow her business daily. Progress no perfection is her mantra, and she elaborates on ways to actively, plan for and work towards growing a business while learning how to deal with rejection by focusing on your passion and why you started and making commitments that will push you to take action.
