Art Business Book Club: The Right Brained Business Plan

I love to read. I especially like to read anything art or creatively orientated. So I thought I would share some of my favorite recent artistic reads! This summer during my residency, I began to work through a book about business planning. I thought it would be a good way to stay on track as an artistic entrepreneur and keep my goals insight. I quickly became overwhelmed by the technicalities needed to make a business plan after creating a 30 paged rough draft document, I didn’t even want to touch it, let alone work and operate from this well thought out plan.

I was introduced to a different way of thinking through this book. I began to read The Right-Brain Business Plan: A Creative, Visual Map for Success because I had no idea what I was doing as far as business planning goes. It was an easy to read breakdown of all of the important aspects of a business plan, but in a format that was easy for right brained people and creatives to understand.

I recommend this book to any artist ready to take the next step professionally and begin operating with a clear plan. It makes those scary executive summaries and profit loss financial statements do-able. The best part is actually exercising your creativity in making your business plan. My favorite thing to read about is time management and how to maintain momentum in your career.
