Sometimes we just want to live a life of convenience.
Often we rush around in a variety of different directions trying to recover valuable bits of art business wisdom from across the web.
After stressing ourselves to the point of extreme frustration,we long for someone out there to put all the information we are seeking in one place.
When it appears that someone actually has attempted to take the mystery out of some of our greatest business struggles we jump on the opportunity to learn, but leaping without looking first can sometimes get us into a lot of trouble.
At the very least, we find ourselves in the wrong environment for our particular type of business.
In the most extreme cases, we slowly discover that in a mad effort to network, we are attached to people who’s core beliefs, morals and values do not match our own.
If the later happens, we are faced with the difficult decision of figuring out how we are going to politely separate ourselves from them without stepping on toes, bruising egos and burning bridges.
Nevertheless, only we can decide what is right for our particular business.
Yes, we may feel disappointed when certain opportunities and the people presenting those opportunities are not the “perfect fit” that we initially hoped they would be, but in the end, these experiences leave us with a clearer view of what we don’t want our business to project.
When we recognize what is not good for our business, we can then discover what is good for our business.
