6 Steps to Selling Art Without Ever Selling Out
By Jessica Serran for Empty Easel
The trap comes when we get caught up thinking: “I’m not ready,” (because hello, we’re never actually ready) or “I don’t have a shopping cart set up” (hello perfectionism!) or, “No one is going to buy my art.”
The truth is that you don’t need to have or to know these things, yet. What you do need is this: exactly what you already have, right now, at your disposal. That, and a burning desire to sell some art.
Step 1: No is not an option
This is about owning your desire, making it a burning one, and committing to it. You have to decide that you refuse to take no for an answer. Period. “I am selling my art. I am manifesting $2000 this month. I am moving into the apartment of my dreams. Period.” This energy is the stuff of miracles.

In a national survey, 85% of women seeking safety in a domestic violence shelter reported pet abuse in their home. That means too many women face the unimaginable choice of leaving their pet behind to be tortured or killed by the abuser they are trying to flee, simply because most shelters don’t welcome animals.
After a wake up call back in 2005, one domestic violence shelter in Nevada vowed to change that. Since then, Noah’s Animal House has cared and protected over 1,500 pets for 100,000 boarding nights.
Our CFO and passionate pet lover, Connie, chose Noah’s Animal House to receive a portion of Festivalnet.com’s gross profits this month. See all our apples up on our Giving Tree page!
