Beyond Business

In preparation for the launch of the Beyond Buckskin Boutique site, I’m going to be reaching out to professionals to write guest posts on tips for gaining success in business (in fashion and in the arts), including tips on the following:

  • Small business start-up
  • E-commerce
  • Grant-writing, grant opportunities and deadlines
  • Branding
  • Networking
  • Web presence development
  • Trademark and copyright
  • Thinking globally
  • Targeting your market
  • Budgeting

We hope to provide a space for Native designers and artists to look beyond the regular business model, and take into consideration creativity and concepts of Native community to create successful ventures.

If you, or anyone you know, would like to give some formal helpful advice to artists and designers on how to take the professional aspects of their art to new levels, contact me at beyondbuckskin@gmail.com.
