Become the Professional Artist That Buyers are Looking For 

Hi there! In case we haven’t met, I’m Andrea Bogart, professional artist and creative business consultant who’s guided hundreds of artists, makers and designers to business clarity, higher profits and their higher selves. So we’re clear, there’s absolutely no secret to success and no easy path but with my expert guidance, proven strategies, and peer support you’ll learn step-by-step how to develop a strong and healthy creative enterprise.

First, a few questions…

1.) Do you want to stop the frustration of business building?

2.) Wanna feel the thrill of actually KNOWING that you’re profiting from your passion?

3.) Tired of wasting time posting on social media and fixing up your website with little to show for it?

If you answered, “Yes” to any of these then you’ve come to the right place.

Learning Creative Business Skills is Easier Than You Think!

And fun when you’re in a community of like-minded artists committed to THEIR success, too!  As a professional artist who’s developed both a retail and wholesale business, selling through galleries, museums, Bloomingdales and Henry Bendels, NYC, I understand your pain – I lived it. Creating is “who we are” and fills us with joy while the business part is confusing and scary. That’s why I designed my transformational course specifically for our artistic mindset with real life examples that show how each section is used by creatives just like you.
