Offering Creative Services: a panel discussion with Nova Scotian commercial artists

Five creative business owners open up about the ins and outs of offering services.

Attention all photographers, designers, videographers, animators, illustrators and others who offer a creative service!

The Creative Kick has asked five business owners in a variety of disciplines to sit down and dish out the details around being a creative worker. We'll cover topics such as:

  • How to find clients.
  • What it's like to pivot from offering a service to passive income.
  • Niching down or remaining broad.
  • Trying to get that elusive work/life, especially when doing everything yourself.

No matter if you've been selling your services for a while, or are just considering taking the leap... this panel is for you!
