Maybe you're in the midst of tying up all those loose ends that are associated with your Art Business for 2013. But 2014 is already peeking around the corner.
If you want to be art business-ready for 2014, then read this 15 Point Checklist for a Successful New Year from the Arts Business Institute (ABI). Here are two points that especially resonated with me.
- "Add New Designs to your collection. Most successful artists who wholesale offer 30% new products each year to waiting retailers who want to offer fresh, exciting goods to their customers. This is the time for product design and development. Be ready to break out of the gate right after January 1st with a solid collection of new products."
- "Clean And Organize Your Studio and Office. Clear out all the clutter you’ve been meaning to get rid of, and set the stage for a successful upcoming year with a clean, orderly and inspiring place to work."
