“At C4 Atlanta, we teach artists the vocabulary that empowers them to make a living doing art. For many artists, creating a business plan taps into a latent part of the brain that they haven’t explored before and it sparks creativity that they didn’t think was there. One purpose of business planning is to make you think about your life in terms of a mission. What gets you out of bed every day and what drives you?” ~Jessyca Holland
