Join me, Ekaterina Popova, for a solo episode of Art & Cocktails as I pull back the curtain on my small art business to give you a clear view of what's actually working and profitable, and what's merely "nice to have."

In this episode, I share the practices that are propelling my business forward. I discuss the crucial balance between focusing on strategies that significantly impact revenue and steering clear of appealing yet non-lucrative opportunities.

While acknowledging the role of traditional art world opportunities, I share insights on why sole reliance on them isn’t a sustainable strategy for an art career. Instead, I highlight the success I've found through direct art sales, prints from my online shop, and coupled with online educational courses and coaching services. I also discuss the benefits of cultivating passive income streams, affiliate marketing, and brand partnerships.

This episode is a call to action for artists to take charge of their business, create independent income streams, and use our energy wisely, so we can spend more time doing what we love!
