Independent Creative Services

Dear June,

I am a graphic artist, writer and musician - sometimes separately, sometimes in combination. Currently, I make revenue from all three endeavors, but only profit from two. Do you think these three activities make sense as a single business?

I was thinking "independent creative services" might be the ticket. Am I on the right track or way off base?

Thank you for your help!

Hello Jamie,

Yes, you are not only on the right track you're on the right train. And independent creative services is a perfect business description.

So many people in the arts combine many creative endeavors. Their thinking, supplies, equipment, business acquaintances, clients, books, and more cannot be separated into different businesses.

Don't get too creative though by trying to combine dog walking with graphic design.
