I went home and told my husband I was quiting my 'real' job to create an amazing painting studio.
Normally my husband is very supportive and here to help where he can, but this time he nearly fell off his chair from laughing so hard at me.
He thought it was a ridiculous idea because I didn't know a thing about running a business.
Which I didn't!
He knew I was a good artist and pretty crafty, but that's where it stopped. I work at a school that handles the business side of things.
So I dedicated time in the evenings learning everything I could while still working that 'real' teaching job. Still miserable, but getting so excited to move forward with something that I love doing AND making money.
And that's when I turned my painting skills into dollar bills!
I started my own Paint Party Business which experienced so much growth and success that this is what happened over the next few years:
I quit my corporate teaching job. Woo-hoo!
I moved my family to our favourite part of Australia, started teaching paint parties across the state and began hiring artists and administrative employees to accommodate the demand. I eventually moved my creative gear into a commercial space where I teach classes as a hobby now :)
AND I get to do something that I love every day and that's serving a community of dedicated creative women...
I get to impact the lives of hundreds of female entrepreneurs who deserve the same thing-
To have financial freedom doing something they love! And it's so achievable :)
The reason I am sharing this all with you is because I want the same for you.
I don't want you to have to go through the trial and error I had to :(
You're here listening to me now as an aspiring artist or creative educator and you want more...
You know where you are and probably where you want to be...
