Pathway #2: Tuesday 6/30
Branding and Marketing the Legacy of You with Michael Ian Cedar, Ask Yourself Productions

This is probably the workshop your parents wished you took before committing to a life in the arts. Imagine the power of being able to hone in on exactly what unique value YOU add to the industry, what sets YOU apart from the thousands of others, and the ways YOU can get word out to decision makers about the uniqueness of what YOU are “selling”.

Pathway #3: Wednesday 7/15
Project Management: A Practical Approach for the Arts with Dickson Lane, Express Lane LLC

“All things are created twice; first mentally; then physically. The key to creativity is to begin with the end in mind,
with a vision and a blue print of the desired result." — Stephen Covey
This workshop provides a blue print for successfully managing arts projects. More at

Pathway #4: Tuesday 7/28
Balancing Your Finances: Personal and Business with financial advisor Bailie Slevin, Founder & President at Entertaining Finance

In this seminar we will take the fear out of finances. As a freelancer/artist/business owner or producer you have a very different relationship to money then a salaried employee. More at

Pathway #5: Tuesday 8/11
Networking Your Way to the "Right" People for Your Career with producer, manager and creative coach Joanne Zippel

As a creative artist, it can often be hard to find and connect with the “right” people to move your career forward. Part of it may have to do with self-limiting beliefs like viewing “networking” as a difficult business of “selling yourself” and in some way not staying true to your authentic artistic vision, and part of it may be just a lack of know-how and a reluctance to step out of your comfort zone.More at
