In my continuing journey to create art lies the need to sell art. I
am have not been a business woman. Budgeting is a four letter word in our house that sends us both on a downward spiral of frustration followed by guilt buying because we want to then feel good. Yet, here I am a fully legitimate business owner!!! I will be proud of this accomplishment for a little while because there was a bit of red tape to jump around.
oh each step has its own cost too.
1. the search the name $$.
2. based on the search choose the name and apply to register $$$.
3. register in my province $$
4. register in my city $$$
Then there is the finer points of being a home business. I can have people come to the house to see my work but I can’t sell a manufactured item directly from the house. ??? So, I can have you come over and love a piece but will have to deliver it myself. ok. Wonder if it will work to deliver it to an awaiting car???
Seems this business end is necessary as I want it to support the materials I use. Next step is applying to show my current work in some other areas. Did you know that it is normally 2 years down the line for a show accepted in this year? That’s a lot of time to wait. Still so much to learn on each end of this journeys spectrum.
Officially my business is TAMMYGEBHARDTVISUALART
makes sense to me 😉
