Robin: New Directions


My new venture will begin with My Creative Peace, a website which will offer creativity workbooks and resources for those who are interested in integrating Creativity with Christianity in their daily lives. 
I will give you details as I move forward. But for now, my target date is Summer 2011.
I am incredibly excited about this and I hope you will be pleased by the evolution.

Sonya: thoughts on the first quarter

The first quarter is almost over. The calendar announces the arrival of Spring. Trees are blooming in Tennessee. But hold on to your seed packets, cause it's time to plant spring bulbs not seeds.

It's time to tally your first quarter results ...

It's time to note the results ...

It's time to work the old spread sheets ... adjust your numbers ... REVISE the plan ...  and anything else that needs adjusting, cause we're just in one quarter and the best is yet to come ... soon and very soon ... you'll be scattering seeds for blossoms in May.

I shared the outside of my game board HERE. This is the inside ... the green dots represents, my photography and video or shall I just say shooting pictures. Shooting pictures and videos allows me to communicate with any and everyone. That's why the green dot ... dominates the game board. So, I'm wondering what dominates your creative biz game. Let us all know in the comments.

Sonya: Creative Biz Marathon EVIDENCE of plans in ACTION

I am loving the Right Brainers in Business Video Summit ... the energy and the momentum reminds me of dancing with the marathon JV's here ... right after Christmas, but before the New Year. And, as I checked out Kelly's new logo and FB pages, I noted other changes for the CBM friends and I would like to note some of them here as well.

Alease has an awesome new header and a FREE product offer and a paid product offer

Kelly's new logo and FB pages ... new business approach ... welding class

Laura is working on a prototype for her jewelry line and painting ...

Soon I'll be reveling my new website/blogsite and I'm self publishing my first book as well

I'M SO HAPPY to have found a few Joint Venture Partners last year! So we could begin to work our plan this year!

Kelly: New Business Image!

I just wanted to share a huge change that I announced yesterday - a completely new business image on Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, and my website!  It was something I've been thinking about for a couple of years now and I finally was able to move on it.  I think it reflects all the changes in me and in my business goals!  I think it is super important to have a logo that fits your style and unified look for your business, so that you can increase your brand recognition.  I am so excited that I'm finally able to present a much better and cleaner look!

And to celebrate, I am holding a Facebook Sweepstakes giveaway, where I am giving away one of my little birdies and an original mixed media painting.  This is the first time I've ever done this, but I am having a ball, so I may do these from time to time.  Come check it out!  The painting you see below is the one in the sweepstakes...

Whispered in Her Ear, mixed media, 6x6, 2011

I wrote about this biz change in my blog, and really touched on the inspiration behind it.  Please head on over and check it out, if you are curious.

The other thing I wanted to share, is that I knew when I decided to make this change, I would need help to do it properly.  So I enlisted the help of Laura Otero, (which most of you already know) to help me get it done.  This girl blew me away with her ideas and organization, and I will be forever grateful for all the care and attention she gave to my project.  If you EVER need any help with this sort of thing, please, go to Laura - you will not regret it!!

Hope you guys are starting to fly on your creative business! Isn't it fun????
