    John Paul: I’m John Paul Fischbach. I’m the CEO and Chief Alchemist here at the Auspicious Arts Incubator.

     

    Craig: And I’m Craig Lambie, the IT Guru and Finance Coach. We created the Incubator so that artists and arts organizations can get the marketing and business skills that they need.

     

    John Paul: It's real, practical stuff delivered the way we like it. Over this past year we have travelled all around the country working with over 600 artists helping them to believe in themselves and their success.

     

    Craig: This past year we helped 43 artists completely transform their lives and their art careers. We are so proud of them. Here’s a few things that they had to say about working with us.

     

    • What I can see my business turning into is going to be pay dividends.

     

    • Made me feel more powerful.

     

    • They are practical tools that everything is achievable.

     

    • No one has ever told me this stuff before and he said oh, didn’t they teach you that in art school? How did they expect you to make money? And I said, well they didn’t.

     

    • Now I’m so much better equipped to run an arts business.

     

    • I just didn’t know what the next step was and this really gave me a great process to follow.

     

    • It’s going to revolutionize the way that we operate. The culture of our company is already changing.

     

    • This course is all about sustainable business.

     

    • I can actually think seriously about having a career in the arts.

     

    • I also had my first holiday because not only have I got this year secure but we've got the next three years sorted.

     

    • They wanted people to thrive and it was really obvious.

     

    • For anybody who hasn’t done it yet, do it.

     

    John Paul: We've also helped arts workers and administrators learn how to market and develop their programs and their facilities. As a successful practicing artist myself it's great to be able to share the secrets of marketing and business success that will build the capacity of the arts.

     

    Craig: We really love that the artist we've been working with are now highly valued by society like solicitors and accountants and the people that make widgets. It’s really great.

Hot Tip # 96 - Stop Floundering

The magic key to working smarter is planning, especially when it comes to reaching the goal. You need to plan the work and then work the plan. The first hour of your week is the time to zoom up, see the big picture and create the plan to achieve it.

Hot Tip # 97 - 2 step anxiety management

It’s normal for artists to experience more anxiety than most so we need to manage it. It’s possible to recognise anxiety and wrestle back control so that we can continue forward. But like any great skill it takes practice and time.

Hot Tip # 98 - something more important than your to-do list

If you want less stress and more progress…make sure that everything on your to-do list is scheduled in your diary. If it’s not in your diary it’s just wishful thinking.

A NOT-FOR-PROFIT

ARTS BUSINESS INCUBATOR

WORKING TO HELP ARTISTS MAKE MONEY FROM THEIR ART

"Independent artists and independent arts organizations are consummate entrepreneurs. They are visionary, passionate, creative and able to delivery unique products into a very competitive marketplace "on-time" and "on-budget" over and over again. Sadly, these creative entrepreneurs rarely mature beyond the start-up phase.

No matter how brilliant the art may be, no artist can survive long term in the industry without business and marketing skills."

- JOHN PAUL FISCHBACH
