Arthie Moore- “The Creative Entrepreneur”
IBGR.Network - PROFIT Radio. Everything a business owner needs to start, grow or exit a business. GROW WITH US.
Creative Entrepreneurs are described as follows: Somebody working in the creative sector who is able to demonstrate business success in the classic terms of business growth (profit, market share, employees) and/or in terms of his or her reputation (creativity, quality and aesthetic) amongst their peers.
Creativity is the ability to come up with new ideas and to identify new and different ways of looking at a problem and opportunities.
Here’s a thought - Creative entrepreneurs are not freelancers. Freelancers earn a living by doing paid work for clients, usually charging by the hour, day or project. Freelancers think in terms of ’getting more work’. Creative entrepreneurs think in terms of creating opportunities, producing results and making profits. This leads them to create systems and businesses that generate wealth and free up their time for their next big idea.
Show Objectives - The Why
Creativity is now the only way to stand out in a world that is thriving online, with new rules and new systems in place. You will need to become more creative in HOW you seek opportunities, build your business and WHO you collaborate with. This means that you will need a difference level of decisiveness, yet again.

5. Monitoring or evaluation.
Key Issues - Owner Perspective:
So where does that leave us at Entrepreneurs? What 3 things can we do immediately to begin implementing creativity within our daily practices?
They are adept at projecting a desired image and creating a personal brand, both online and offline. They also understand the principles of intellectual property law and use copyrights, trademarks, patents and licenses to exploit the full potential of their ideas.
What You Need to Know - The What
It’s not enough to be creative in making your products and services; you need also to apply creativity in your business methods: in marketing, raising finance, collaborations, intellectual property.
What is the difference between a Creative and an Entrepreneur?
Mark McGuinness writes about an amazing story of resilience!
Once upon a time there was ’a young girl who just wanted to draw pictures’. When she was 11, her family created a ’studio’ for her by emptying out a linen closet, where she would sit and draw for hours, no matter how hot it was in summer. She grew up into a woman who wanted to draw pictures. She took a job at an ad agency and freelance commissions from clients – but she wasn’t satisfied ’drawing to order’ for other people. So she started licensing her designs to greeting card companies and saw her levels of income and satisfaction rise.
She branched out into other media and took on staff to help her. To this day, she still draws the originals of all her designs, before her staff ’reformats’ them for licensed products including cards, calendars, T-shirts, mugs, books and animated films. One day her fame and personal brand were so well established that she was able to launch a national magazine bearing her name – Mary Engelbreit’s HOME COMPANION.
Had she remained a freelancer or even become a contracted author, Mary Engelbreit would no doubt have made a comfortable living. But because she became an entrepreneur, licensing her art and building a business around it, she has achieved lifetime retail sales of more than $1 billion. She has also touched the lives of millions of people with her artwork, and partnered with the charity First Book to promote literacy by delivering millions of books to low income children.
Artist or Entrepreneur?Conventional thinking sees art and business as worlds apart, with little or nothing in common. Here at Lateral Action we think this is a deeply uncreative way of looking at things. In Mary Engelbreit we see the Artist and Entrepreneur working together in harmony:
What You Need to Do - The How
You need to be objective about the reality of the current expectations and demands on Entrepreneurs to step up. Know yourself in relation to competitors and identify the things you can do better than the many rivals in the marketplace.
