A new book aimed at people who are considering setting up or developing their own business, ‘Make Your Creativity Pay,’ has recently been published.
Make Your Creativity Pay is written by Pete Mosley, business coach, mentor, and Business Editor for Craft&Design Magazine.
Discussing his new publication, Pete explains: "The book is designed to help you reflect on your creativity and to inspire and energise you to get your business heading in the right direction. It’s about testing your ideas and products, defining your niche and marketplace and about telling the story of your work in a way that engages and enthuses people - and encourages them to buy from you. It’s the immutable truths, if you like, of creative self-employment."
Pete was born and raised in Glasgow. “My first taste of working in the arts was when I worked in the studio at Govancroft Potteries throwing pots for the factory tour visitors. I then went to study Art&Design at Loughborough College of Art.”
Pete has been involved professionally in the arts since 1977. He presents at national conferences and events and designs and delivers training events, seminars and continuing professional development programmes.
"I’m deeply fascinated by the business of being creative - and the recession and financial crisis are motivating more and more people to consider whether or not they might be able to make a living from their innate skills and creative talents - the book was written to inspire and motive those people to realise their dreams."
The book is available to purchase in paperbook and eBook formats. Find out more about Make Your Creativity Pay at www.makeyourcreativitypay.com.
