Book Description

Aug. 24 2010
If there’s no stability in the corporate world, why not do what you love?Creative Girlshows women how to turn their talents into a money-making career…smartly. Whether readers are just tapping into their creativity and want to see where it takes them, or if they’re already making a creative living and know it’s time to grab hold of the next level of success, this book has specific advice for women at varying stages.

Author Katharine Sise has certainly “walked the walk” of a creative entrepreneur, as she created her own jewelry line that has won the praise of celebrities and the fashion world. Here she provides ideas for sparking one’s creative talent (through meditating and journaling), and narrowing down what career lifestyle is right for each reader. She also shares insider tips on the realities of navigating a creative career and handling a business—such as how to brand yourself and how to build a platform and garner publicity. Katharine debunks the myth of the “starving artist” and shows how one can turn inspiration into a profitable livelihood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and relevant Sept. 26 2010
By M. Cesarz - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I picked this book up purely out of curiosity (i don't think of myself as creative at all), and i was surprised at how helpful and relevant to my life it was. It actually gave me the gumption to pursue a writing project I've been working on and made me realize that I really do want to try to get it published. Unlike most how-to books, this one makes you reflect on what you want out of life career-wise -- without being cheesy or annoying. I am a stay-at-home mom, but it would also appeal to people who work and want the most out of their jobs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for any Creative Girl (or boy!) out there Sept. 27 2010
By Ali Watts - Published on
Written in both a pratical and fun way, the book is a fast read with a good amount of pitstops along the way to help you guage both where you are in your personal process and what you still need to do to get to your final destination. The real life examples help bring a human element to each new step and chapter. The book is a perfect mix of the encouragement that every creative woman needs while still giving you the realistic tools you'll need to navigate the rough waters of following your dream career. Seeing how she worked through the exact steps she writes about, helps make the whole idea so much more tangible. Looking at her successful business and beautiful jewlery is even more inspiring!

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative Girl Dec 19 2010
By SE - Published on
If your college career services office is anything like mine, with lots of resources for future business professionals and lawyers but not much for creative types, this book will help fill the gap with advice on how to find a creative job at an existing company or create a business plan for your own creative company down the road. Creative girls in the fashion world will probably find the book most helpful, since many of the creative girls Sise interviews work in that industry. But the chapters on money and time management will be helpful for other kinds of artists, too. Especially recommended for those just starting out who'd like advice on interviewing, long-range planning, etc.

Friends and family are always supportive when i mention i want to do something more creative, but this book is what I actually need. It should really be called "How to Have A Creative Career for Dummies." i have yet to gather my courage and embark on the photography career that really interests me, but after finishing this book, i am a giant leap closer. The step by step explanations of each stage, combined with the authors relatable warmth and empathetic prose, made me feel less anxious about striking out on my own, and more confident that my dream career is actually feasible. Highly recommend for recent high school and college grads, and anyone you know who has ever said "well, i like my job, but..."

I am SO glad I came across this book! I read two pages in the book store and knew it had to come home with me. I am a fellow 'Creative Gal' that recently launched my own business. But reading this book was so incredibly valuable - even if you've already taken steps toward launching your biz. Katharine gives you not only creative insight, but also tactical, business advice to turn your vision into reality. I gained so much and really opened my mind and eyes to steps I may have overlooked (or chose to overlook, perhaps). This is really a must-read for anyone starting their own business!
