What is a Creative Business?

A creative business is a business that you start using your creativity. This includes selling Printables, art, and your designs and products. 

A creative business can be a full time job, part time job, or a side hustle, in addition to your regular job.

Side hustles are typically undertaken to supplement other earnings and can take various forms, including freelance work, gig economy jobs, online businesses, consulting, selling products or services, and more.   They are often driven by a desire to increase income, save money, pay off debts, or pursue a passion or interest that has the potential to generate income.

Why Should you Start a Creative Business?

A creative business can allow you to pursue a passion which can maybe one day turn into something more full-time.  They can let you earn extra additional money, save up for something special, and explore other things.

But above all, a creative business is a wonderful way to practice and show your creativity – in absolutely anything at all.
