Hi there! So, you want to start a Creative Business and you don’t know where to begin? Let me help you! I’m Amber King Bounds, Owner of Little King Art. I have a background in Art and Education. I’ve teamed up with some phenomenal businesses and have been mentored by a lot of amazing entrepreneurs. I taught as an Elementary Art Teacher for a few years and left my corporate job completely to stay at home with my son. I have learned a lot through those experiences and I believe it all led me to creating my most successful business, Little King Art.
I know what it’s like to feel lost or stuck and not know what direction you should take next. I also know what it’s like to feel doubtful and to fear the “what ifs.” I’m all about helping people discover their passions and how they can turn those into a hobby, part-time side hustle or full-time job. I’m great with coming up with ideas on how you should start out and what you need in place to get the ball rolling. Let’s meet for coffee/tea and talk things through. Feel free to bring your laptop or a notebook. This will be an hourlong session to discuss all your ideas and which direction you need to take to get you closer to your next goal.
Here are some things we can talk about:
-Creative Business ideas.
-How to get your business off the ground.
-Critique of handmade goods.
-How to connect with venues, shops and boutiques.
-How to get your products in stores or other businesses.
-How to collaborate with other artists or businesses.
-Social media tips.
-Creating a website.
-Networking and putting yourself out there.
I created these consultation sessions because I often receive questions about running a Creative Business. If I cannot answer a question, I’ll seek the answer for you or direct you to one of my awesome connections. At the end of the day, my goal is to help you and I’m here to encourage you to take that next step. I can’t wait to meet with you!
