What Happened?

What Happened?

By Deana Molinari PhD


The blog’s purpose is to help new entrepreneurs open an online business. There are various ways to learn. So far, the blog has focused on explaining the principles of various topics.  Another type of learning is the sharing of personal experience. Group learning and social media conversations are examples of story telling. One person advises and the others comment about the experience. To start the new year of 2018, Artistic Perspectives invites you to communicate your story of what happened to you as you created your business.

Here is a chance to mention your business’s name (or not-you choose) while describing your thinking and action processes. What did you ponder during the creation process? What hurdles did you face? How did you solve issues? What resources did you use? You contribute to meeting other’s needs and addressing their issues, by sharing your story.

In January, Artistic Perspectives will open classes with the following topics:

  • Giving Business a Try:
    • How to create a business

Did you laugh or cry your way through the school of hard knocks? What do you wish you had understood before you….?
