Harris commented, “We wanted to offer a day that would support those who envision themselves having their occupation as their avocation, and that they thrive not just surviving. You may be doing what you love to do but are you able to make a living at it? This is where marketing skills can really come into play.”
Jepperson continued, “It’s really important for those of us in the creative and performing arts to understand and feel comfortable with marketing ourselves and what we do. Most artists prefer someone else to do this for them which is fine and it’s also empowering to know you have the skills in which to do this for yourself as well.”
