A SUCCESSFUL CREATIVE BUSINESS
If you are running your own business you know first hand how challenging it can be. You need to develop your branding and customer relationships, grow and manage the quality and range of your offering, as well as manage staff, invoicing, cash flow and day-to-day administrative tasks.
Running a business is about so much more than just making and selling a product or service. The wheel below shows that this is just one of the eight elements that a business needs to thrive. As a creative individual you are the driving force behind your business and each element. In each segment rate yourself and your business from one to ten, with ten meaning you are strong in this area, and one meaning this area needs more attention. Each area is equally important and all are interrelated. Assessing your strengths and limitations in each of these areas is a first step in taking charge of your business growth and identifying your support needs.
