Welcome to the Creative Freelancer Masterclass
From all the people I have met, everyone, in a moment of their life, taken by despair or hoping for a better future quickly, tried to click on one of these articles that promised us money and effortless success. In an age when everyone dreams of being an influencer and making easy money, talking about sacrifices, study and dedication, can seem out of fashion.
Believe me, most of the sweat and toil happen behind the scenes, and we see only a small part of the shining success as a product. I know this first hand by running multiple creative projects yearly. But we are here to look at its little tooth. Taking it step by step, we will channel your talent into tangible outcomes.
We have collected some ideas for anyone with creative talent and who wants to make it a source of income, to round up, to maybe leave tomorrow a job that no longer serves you, to reinvent yourself after losing a job or after a life-changing circumstance or event like motherhood, retirement which can be a new starting point for you.
Although creative entrepreneurs predate the industrial revolution – artisan jewellery making dates back to 7000 BCE and there were professional poets in Pre-Norman Britain – the subject of creative entrepreneurship is a relatively new area. Thanks to the possibilities of the internet we can share our talents worldwide.
Filmmaker Andrej Tarkovskij talks about art as the privilege of the upper class, with all due respect and some truth about this, I can already see that the world is changing from that perspective. Art, in general, is more and more becoming accessible to anyone. Thus I call you to join the creative revolution that is ahead of us in this forever changing world!

It is good to understand that at the beginning you may need to be kind of a “renaissance person”. Most online businesses, in the beginning, are a one-person show. Unless you have abundant funding for a start-up, you will need to do all the jobs required in setting up your small business. You will be the manufacturer, the marketing director, the customer service manager, and the Internet technology department.
Here are just a few of the things you will need to teach yourself as your new online business grows:
- How to get organized
- How to brainstorm and test new products, marketing ideas, and solutions to problems that arise
- How to get better at making your artwork and products
- How to copyright and license your original designs
- How to use the Internet to gather information, communicate with people, and set up your web pages on different venues
- How to balance your personal life with the demands of your business
It is not necessary to start in control of all these things. What is necessary is a willingness to be open to change, work hard, have patience, and learn. Let´s dive in.
