Deby, I'd like to focus on spending more time culivating and nurturing relationships with current customers. For the first time at a show, I've started collecting email addresses from customers and fans so I can create an exclusive 'club' where they can receive bigger discounts and savings on new art. I was surprised how many people were eager to give me their info! Lol

Deby, I have two: First, I've had trouble finding my "voice" as an artist- I would love to really get settled.  Second I would create a steady income with my work.

Deby, Answer to your question, I'm in the process of taking my art to the next level. I've learned this summer at my shows that to get more sells my art needs to get closer to museum/gallery quality. People like the more realistic and larger sculptures that I do.

On a side note, if you love art and music you need to watch this video.  It made me realize most of my barriers to creating the art I want to create are of my own making.  These students are making music on instruments made from salvage in a landfill, http://www.upworthy.com/watch-the-first-54-seconds-that-s-all-i-ask...

I thought long and hard about what I would change. And I think the thing I would like to change the most is my level of confidence and self-esteem. I am at a level 5 out of 10 and I heard John Maxwell said that you will perform at a couple of noches below your level of self-esteem. I am listening everyday to Earl Nightingale, reading Zig Ziglar and other things.

If anyone has any great books or audios to help with this, let me know. I am ready to hear anything and everything.

Thank you for your Chicago suggestions. We had a great time. The city is beautiful. The weather was perfect. Our friend took us to a soul food resturant in the " hood" and on Sunday we went to the Navy lake Pier and rented a bike that fit all 5 of us. it was so much fun.

Deby thank you for the great question. I would like a house with lots of nautual sun light, 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. where i live now is to small and dark.

Deby,I would like to get commissions on a steady basis. I haven't had one in 3 months.   It gets discouraging sometimes.

Debby, to answer your question, i would transition my Creative Coaching biz from part time to full time.
