As as Creative person, I know how confusing it is to decide on your creative business. You have so many ideas, so many passions and, if you’re anything like me, so many creative skills and talents. That means we’re #blessed. It also makes launching a Creative business that much more complicated. I know how you feel, I do, which is I’m going to guide you every step of the way starting today. This is how to decide what business to start.
So, how do you start? By making the decision to pursue Creative Entrepreneurship whether full-time, part time, or as as a side hustle, and sticking with that idea…eventually. Because it is okay to change your mind. Although monetizing your talent(s) lives in the practical, as Creatives we often need to vibe how an idea feels before committing. The practical has been my internal battle. I want to flow, I want to create. And I have all these ideas. But practically, we have to build and strategize to succeed as Creative Entrepreneurs.
Create a document on Notion, my new FREE favorite online container for brainstorming and content, especially once you’re Google Docs have run out of storage (I’m getting close, cause so many ideas!). Notion even has an app , which means you jot down your ideas wherever you are all of the time. I get creative business ideas in the shower, while driving (more of why later), and even when watching YouTube video. As soon as I receive that intuitive hit, I open my Notion app and start writing. I also suggest you:
You can find quiet time everywhere, like the shower or in your car. Instead of turning on that podcast or playing a song, listen to the humming of the engine. Roll the window down and listen to the wind howl. I guarantee that you’ll be able to listen to your intuition in those moments, and that you’re next creative business idea will hit.
That’s what happened to me. After I dropped off my son at school, I drove home without any noise. It was just me, the road, and the sound of the engine. These flurry of ideas came to me, including podcast topics for the Cocreators Podcast and my next actual Creative Offering for Creative Entrepreneurs, the Cocreators Lab. I had to be safe while driving, of course, so I summoned Siri to send a text message to myself with all of these ideas. If I wouldn’t have had the quiet time, I wouldn’t have been able to truly listen to myself.
I text myself my ideas because that’s what I had available. When I got home, I jotted down those ideas in a Notion doc. So, if you feel the urge, an intuitive little kick to write something down, just text yourself. What’s cool about this is you will have a chain of ideas that you can review wherever you are since we always have our phones.
Begin with the idea that speaks to you the most and that the idea you can actually launch. In other words, don’t make your life more difficult by biting off more than you can chew right now. When you start with the simplest idea, you don’t feel as overwhelmed. Choose the idea that can become the launching pad for your other ideas. For example, if you’re big dream is to launch an actor’s studio, what can you create now that connects and builds up to that creative offering. Maybe you start by teaching acting workshops to network with other actors. Maybe you start a blog where you share acting tips and tricks. (If you have great SEO, you can garner organic traffic to your website and your offering.) The point is that everything you do is to lead you to your big dream. In this case, your actor’s studio. Find the golden thread that ties it all together and take it one step and one day at a time.
