Has anyone out there thought of starting a teaching business? Start & Run an Art Teaching Business is a great book for those of you who are thinking of starting a business. It is full of great exercises to determine if you have what it takes to start a business and forms you will need. It has information on creating a business plan, goal setting and organization. The legal and tax considerations mentioned in the book are for either Canadian or American readers.
I followed some of the exercises and found that it would be better for all concerned that I not start my own art teaching business. The book talked about taking public speaking classes—my stomach won’t take it. I would need to learn time management—did I mention that I was once late for a time management class? I would have to prioritize stuff—I once bought a book on procrastination and put it away to read later!
Seriously though, the book is worth the read for anyone interested. Just following the suggestions and heeding the information provided should help you determine your chances of succeeding as an entrepreneur.
