Who Am I To Tell You?
I’m Rebecca Ahn, founder of The Productive Artist and your personal guide through this creative quest (should you choose to accept it) to a more productively artistic you.
Finding the balance between creativity and its inevitable chaos has been my own lifelong quest. I’ve had a passionate love for the arts since my youth (despite my parents’ urgings to pick a more stable career). I’ve always insisted that the arts can be its own profitable path. So it’s become my life’s mission to master the business side of the creative arts and inspire others to do the same, to prove the productive value of the arts and creativity in today’s economy.
The methods and strategies you’ll find here have been developed and honed over my 10+ years and careers as a business consultant, writer & editor, producer, and tough cookie. I’ve seen the various kinds of struggles that my various kinds of clients face on a daily basis, trying to manage everything all at once without compromising their creative vision. I’ve had a pretty incredible journey so far – one that’s helped me to understand how we as creative freelancers and entrepreneurs can produce something that offers both artistic integrity AND productive value.
Now I'm sharing this expertise with the rest of my creative community (like you!), so you too can build this kind of productive model that sustains your unique creative business (and life).
