I took the summer off from consulting, but did not spend much time on the beach. Rather, I focused on making and promoting my artwork.
This required me to learn some new business skills: social media marketing, setting up for retail payments (credit cards, sales taxes, etc.), shipping large delicate objects, printing, product photography, pricing, and event budgeting.
