Is an Incubator Right for You?
As you are deciding on the right next step in your personal journey, ask a few questions to help determine what you need.
1. Where do I need the most support right now? Is it in the creative process? Technical development? Am I looking for business guidance?
2. What are my personal career goals? Do I want to be a ceramics professor? Do I want to run my own studio? Am I looking at wholesaling? Am I setting up my own brick-and-mortar gallery or store? Am I interested in online retail channels?
3. Do I have the skills needed to run a small business? Am I good at organizing? Am I decisive? Do I have good time-management skills? Am I willing to put in the time, as much as 100 hours a week?”
