Description
If there's no stability in the corporate world, why not do what you love? Creative Girl shows women how to turn their talents into a money-making career...smartly. Whether readers are just tapping into their creativity and want to see where it takes them, or if they're already making a creative living and know it's time to grab hold of the next level of success, this book has specific advice for women at varying stages.

Author Katharine Sise has certainly "walked the walk" of a creative entrepreneur, as she created her own jewelry line that has won the praise of celebrities and the fashion world. Here she provides ideas for sparking one's creative talent (through meditating and journaling), and narrowing down what career lifestyle is right for each reader. She also shares insider tips on the realities of navigating a creative career and handling a business--such as how to brand yourself and how to build a platform and garner publicity. Katharine debunks the myth of the "starving artist" and shows how one can turn inspiration into a profitable livelihood.
