Episode 23: Mistakes I Made When I Started My Art Business

Unfold with Kellee Wynne Ep. 23

Kellee is continuing the summer mini-series about running a business.   In the episode, Kellee is sharing some of the mistakes she made when she started her art business.  She's sharing them so that hopefully you don't make the same mistakes.  Or if you've already made them, you can commiserate and know you have company.

And so that is the journey that I've been on. I've made my mistakes, I've learned from mistakes, I will probably make many, many more to come. Because that's just me, I'm human.  

These are some of the mistakes Kellee talks about and when sharing these, she also shares stories and examples of how these came to pass.

  • Spending too much time on branding and logos etc and not enough time on creating the art,
  • Creating collateral  before she was ready,
  • Selling prints before she'd mastered the art of selling the original,
  • Not hiring soon enough and not hiring the right people,
  • Focusing on all the things rather than doing one thing and doing it well.

Kellee shared some of her mistakes because she wants to give an insight of her journey, the good the bad and the ugly.  In this episode she talks about her mistakes and in next week's episode she will share some of the things that she did right.  So get your notebook ready to take more notes.
