What is Coaching and How you can create a sustainable business for yourself

As an artist or a designer, it’s always hard keeping up with creating and making. Am I right?
To top it off you need to find the time to devote ‘on’ and ‘above‘ your business too. The tasks like generate leads, sales, marketing, systems development, and planning. All that while working ‘in’ your business, and operating, your creative  art and design practice… and I mean all day… every day!

As the world of art and design move faster and faster, becoming ever more demanding and competitive… Having a coach is no longer a luxury… It’s fast becoming a necessity!

Elite athletes have a coach. And now, in this difficult and demanding time for creative professionals around Australia and around the world, it’s your turn to have a “business coach” too.

A sporting coach will work with an athlete in establishing training routines and developing habits that mean that the athlete can achieve optimum performance. A sporting coach provides support, motivation, and encouragement. A sporting coach is there when the athlete starts the training day, and is there when the athlete runs across that finish line.

It’s the coach that works with the athlete on the big picture. Works with the athlete on strategies that the athlete needs to earn a place on the winner’s podium. It’s the coach that works with the athlete to keep them going when energies are low and the hurdles seem to high.

In the same way as a sporting coach will work with an elite athlete, a  Business LifeStyle coach will work with you and walk alongside you as together we create a sustainable business that supports you in your enterprise… Thus creating what we call a “Business LifeStyle”.

Here at ArtSHINE we’re not about growth for growth’s sake. We’re not advocates for “Work / Life Balance”. In fact, it’s just the opposite! For us it’s about getting better, not getting bigger. For us it’s about creating a “whole of life”, or “portfolio” approach to work. It’s about creating a Business LifeStyle, and designing a sustainable creative art and design practice that supports you in life and, supports you in work as well.

ArtSHINE  is a boutique coaching practice based in Sydney, Australia. We provide business coaching, mentoring, business advisory, & new enterprise facilitation. Our coach partners and associate catalysts have decades of hands on, real world experience to share.
