The dream of being a well-known, successful artist is a valid one.  Artists are important people that not only create their wonders but also push the culture forward.  Take for instance Leonardo da Vinci!  We still use his ideas in this day and age. 

Artists are the dreamers of what could be and how things can be done better.

Artists march to a different beat.  Which is sometimes why the dream of making a full-time living with your artistic creations might be a difficult task.  Who wants to be running a business when you can be creating instead?  As a multi-talented artist myself, I would love to create full-time and magically have sales happen!

In our 21st Century, we have a tool that is pretty close to being magic: the internet.

Help 4 Artists 2 SucceedThe internet is magical! With a click of a few keyboard keys you can get access to tons of services, programs and solutions aimed at helping creative and talented folks to succeed.  You can get instructions, lessons, advice, successful actions and so much more!  You can get lost with all the solutions, websites, services – you name it.

Trying the many websites and solutions, joining social media groups, spending hours on Facebook, creating videos and a myriad of other activities may not help you to achieve your goal of quitting your 9-5, being successful and becoming a family name.

Your hopes and dreams of success may get dashed because there’s hardly enough sales to support yourself.  Who do you ask? Where do you look for help?  Help 2 Succeed!

At Help 2 Succeed, you get advice from professional artists (see the articles and radio shows), solutions, tips plus customized guidance to achieve your dreams and goals from a mentor that has over 25 years experience.

A Mentor is a friend and a guide that provides a nurturing relationship with a protégé in order to promote his or her success in the wider world.  This type of help dates back 3000 years or so with the original mentor, Athena in the Greek classic The Odyssey.  In the 21st century there’s even more opportunities!

How Does Mentoring Work?

At Help 2 Succeed, a mentor is your friend, guide and uses the “Validate the Rightness” method. 

As a creative person you may have received many negative, critical, “can’t be done” and “isn’t possible” remarks from others.  You may have received “good” advice to give up your dreams as an artist and train for a career.  At Help 2 Succeed you will find a safe haven where you can be nurtured, grow and prosper.  You will find that it can be done and that it is possible to achieve your dreams.

A mentor can also help you with answering the following questions:

What’s the correct route for YOU?  Where do YOU need to be in order to get the recognition YOU are going for?  What information do you need?  How do you run a business? How do you successfully promote yourself and your works?  …just to name a few of the areas…
