Now that I’ve been licensing my art for a few years and we’re gearing up for our Brand Plus Brand course launch, I’ve been thinking about things I wish I had known before starting this journey.
So for this bonus episode, we turned the tables and I’m actually the guest answering questions from my licensing agent, Julie Turkel, on her podcast.
If you are an artist designer, photographer, any creative brand owner, and you’ve been thinking about getting into licensing, or maybe you are in licensing already, and you just want some insight on the journey, I think this is going to be a very interesting episode for you.
