My initial plant for my career was not starting a business. I wanted to go into engineering however I hit a wall taking physics & calculus in undergraduate school. I realized fairly quickly that I was irritated doing the things an average engineer does on a biweekly basis so I changed course as a sophomore. Doing hard calculations & formulas on a ipad for most of my morning didn’t exactly seem love a fun career for me, especially if much of my toil involved endless paperwork. Instead, I started taking art classes & immersed myself in all of the visual arts from sculpting to painting & digital design. There was constantly going to be more toil in the graphic design industry, but my tploy passion was with oil painting. I took a risk by going to an art school after finishing undergrad, however I was able to network while I was there. Now I have my toil in galleries all around the country, but I’m trying to open a private gallery downtown in my city. I didn’t even suppose where to go or who to ask about renting spaces downtown. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to contact a local contractor development center for help securing a space to rent downtown. Getting into a location love my city’s downtown district is crucial for an artist love myself looking to get regular commission work. You need to supply people an excuse to visit your gallery; if it’s along a busy road next to other frequented businesses, it’s easier to get people in the front door. Thankfully the local contractor development center was able to help me find appropriate spaces to rent downtown for me to build my art gallery.
