As I have worked over the last few years with my mentor Scott Bourne, he reminds me of three things that will help you to become more successful. They are the following:
1. Show your work
2. Show your work
3. Show your work
He says this to provide emphasis of how important it is to show your work. Getting your work in front of people is so critical to your success in selling. Remember that no one will probably show up at your front door looking to buy your work.
Find any avenue that you can to show your work. I will be showing my work at Walla Walla University in an exhibition for alumni weekend in a couple of days. I taught at the university for thirty four years so many of my former students and colleagues will come by to see my work. It will provide a good opportunity to display my work as well as let people know about the business that I am now involved in.
Below are some of the pieces of artwork that will be displayed during the exhibition. They will all be large gallery wrapped canvases.
Remember look for any opportunity you can to follow the advice of “Show your work”.
