The Creative Entrepreneur Workshop is a LIVE, in-person workshop led by Lisa Sonora, author of The Creative Entrepreneur.
It is offered as a 5 day intensive in Oaxaca, Mexico at Lisa’s own studio.
Oaxaca, Mexico: October 22-26, 2015
I want to live in a world where it’s easy to find and follow your creative path, and make a good living at it if you decide to make it your business.
I’m so saddened every time I hear from another person who isn’t moving forward with their creative dreams—because they’re overwhelmed, fear they don’t have what it takes to succeed, or are stuck in old starving artist myths.
It’s even more depressing to hear about all the energy, time and money they’ve spent trying to figure this stuff out, only to end up more confused and frustrated—feeling like they are always starting over, and still…not making any progress (or money).
I want you to have a clear way to pursue any creative idea you can imagine.
That’s why I’ve created The Creative Entrepreneur Workshop.
The Creative Entrepreneur workshop is all about making your dreams, ideas and feelings spectacularly clear and visible, so that you have a simple, doable, plan of action in front of you.
Because when you’ve got a clear, meaningful picture of what you want to do, and how you’re going to do it, it’s easy to take action, stay focused, and get results.
All you have to do is show up with a blank sketchbook. I’ll provide all of the supplies and direction.
You’ll leave with beautiful clarity (priceless!), your next steps mapped out, and a powerful set of creative, strategic tools you can use forever to design any plan, anytime.
Also: there will be laughter, chocolate, and really good food.
Right now, you can claim your space in one of the 2019 workshops. These in-person workshops are kept small by design, and fill up fast.
About Lisa Sonora
Every idea first begins with a dream, or some inking to create or grow that we can’t quite name.
My dream is the simple desire to create beauty and use art for healing, and show others how to do the same.
I discovered how to follow my dream and even make a living from it, using a set of simple, yet powerful creative processes.
This work is practical.
This work is imaginative.
About The Creative Entrepreneur Workshops
The Creative Entrepreneur workshops came about when people in my creativity workshops kept asking me how I was able to make a living from my creativity.
They asked: Please teach a workshop about business – but for creative people.
So I did.
Shortly after, I wrote The Creative Entrepreneur book, to share material from the workshops in book form.
Well…people still keep asking me for business workshops. Even if they have the book – it can be daunting to try and do on your own, or alone.
I absolutely love sharing this work with people — it’s my passion, it’s an art. The art of being yourself and getting paid for it.
If you feel nervous at all about the idea of business, or are even a bit afraid about taking a “creative entrepreneur” workshop, I’m here to tell you, it’s a pretty normal response to such a daunting topic.
I was there myself. But instead of having a fun workshop like this, I went to business school (barf!) to try and figure this stuff out.
At the end of this page is the third-person “official” bio – in case you want to know more about me.
