It’s the month of Spring and we’re hitting ‘refresh’ at Chapter Friday. March is a typical month to sharpen your brain and focus on your (career) path.
Armed with Spring’s new energy, the focus in March is on careers, cash and creativity. Three concepts that, inevitably, go hand in hand – but that also cause friction. Creative people often have this love/hate relationship with money.
With that in mind, Chapter Friday gives you some help and insight in the money side of your creative business. How do you market your ideas without becoming a sell-out? How do you deal with rough clients? What are start-up costs for a creative (fashion) freelancer? Chapter Friday introduces a new series this month called Money Talk, that deals with exactly those questions.
Articles will feature women who run their own creative business with success, like Rachel Duister from Fashionology (one of Holland’s first fashion bloggers turned jewelry designer). You’ll read about how I made a business out of getting dressed in the morning and how I expect the blogger industry to evolve. What happens to influence as a currency when everyone with a smartphone calls themselves an influencer? I already look forward to discussing this with you.
There will be desk inspiration, a playlist of money songs and of course, you’ll also find a fun, fresh dose of fashion, with a work wardrobe angle.
Of course, your feedback and enthusiasm is our biggest drive, so if there are any career or money questions you would LOVE to see answered, shoot!
I look forward to a month of ass-kicking together and if all of that fails, no worries: remember that every day is longer and warmer than the one before. Summer is coming our way, so there’s always something to be cheerful about.
Enjoy this month!
