THE ARTIST ENTREPRENEUR
Anyone working in a Creative field understands that, by virtue of the kind of work you do, you are an Entrepreneur by default. Perfecting craft is not super helpful if you don't have a quiver of entrepreneurial and business skillsets to go with it. For many, the myth of the 'starving artist' is unfortunately more truth than fiction - but it doesn't have to be this way. Artists today have more personal power over their careers than perhaps in historic times, thanks to technology tools, social media platforms, and the power of the internet to empower self-invention.
PLEASURES & AMUSEMENTS
Our attractive location north of Seattle and south of Vancouver BC offers convenient access to the San Juan Islands and Vancouver Island via ferry. Laid-back artisan lifestyles of Anacortes and La Conner, and a temperate climate, make exploring the area an experiential delight.
