Scott Trees has had a successful career as a Creative for many years. However, he will be the first to tell you that it has not been an easy journey. Scott says, “When I was getting started, I had no experience in business. I just jumped in and learned how to swim, fast! I had no mentors and so I made a LOT of mistakes along the path to becoming a successful Creative. In this series I will share what I learned from my mistakes and my successes as I learned equally from both!”
In The Bu$ine$$ of Being a Creative, Scott openly discusses what he has learned from his experience as a self-employed Photographer and Videographer. The fact of the matter is that the majority of my time is not spent behind the camera! As with any business endeavor, there is a lot of time spent keeping the business moving forward.
Scott begins this four part series with some of the basic elements and requirements of what it takes to start a business. He then moves into subjects such as: figuring out overhead, pricing considerations, taxes, and a myriad of other important factors that are critical to any business success. This series is a vital asset to anyone looking to start their own Creative business.
