Artists need to be entrepreneurs… says an entrepreneur

The other day I was meeting with several independent artists (creative people not working at a company to produce art for a salary) due to a new fine arts project I’m trying to bring to life.

Accordion… your child’s first instrument?

Maybe it was because we had a piano at home. Around the age of 5 I found myself getting lessons from a teacher on that black box with white and black keys. According to various sources on Internet, piano, guitar, violin or the flute are the main instruments the parents see as best suitable for […]

Why did my business partner say NO to me?

She was smiling. I was dumbfounded. It was my first interview in Sofia, Bulgaria with a potential business partner. She had seemed to be in agreement with all the details of the cooperation.

Don’t be the chosen… Be a chooser

People want to be chosen: as the construction company for the project, as the graphics artist for the job, etc. We walk on air if we are the chosen one! And usually for each “successful” one there are many unsuccessful ones. There is no easy recipe like “7 things the successful people do” to really […]

Products of an unrealised dream

Let’s say you dream about making a short film to participate in festivals. You are an executive in business life and have never made a film before. What do you do? Don’t say “How come?” I said it’s a dream. ☺ Using your business skills, you will probably first think about building a team to […]
