Week 2 Business Portrait & Landscape

Part 1: My Business Self Portrait. 
(In Words because visual art ability was dedicated to a portrait in progress today.) 
For a census survey today, I was asked, "On average, how many hours do you work per week?"  When I was working on vocational rehabilitation goals with ACCESS-VR, I began documenting my studio time. I have since continued that system. Although I have been deemed unemployable, because I work from my bed and several other work stations; it averages out to about 55-60 hours per week that I dedicate to my studio goals. I am hoping that with the help of the Right Brain Business Plan [RBBP] eCourse my income will start to reflect this effort. 


In completing my income taxes and P and L statement for my business I was a bit disappointed with the financial aspect of my hard work this year. 

But then, I remembered that the main mission of this studio business is TO MAKE ART AND SHARE IT WITH THE PUBLIC. I created a different kind of P and L for myself. It shows all of the areas in which the studio (a.k.a."me") 
did manage to do that. There has been significant increase in making & sharing of art. I am proud of that.

Preliminary review of my current business landscape seems to emphasize that my local market cannot accommodate the fair market value of the work that I do. I am taking the advice of my creative cohorts at RBBP and beginning a marketing plan that addresses the needs of both of my current markets, as well as a broader "ideal" market that I hope to reach in the future.
