Creative Girl: Turning your talent into a real career


© Creative Girl
Luckily Katharine Sise is sharing her career secrets in her debut book, Creative Girl: The Ultimate Guide for Turning Talent and Creativity into a Real Career (Perseus/Running Press) which launches next month (September 2010) is packed full of useful advice and expert knowledge on how achieve your dream career.

Here she provides ideas for sparking your creative talent, and narrowing down the right career. She also shares insider tips on the realities of navigating a creative career and handling the business – such as how to brand yourself, build a platform and garner publicity, whilst helping with pricing to make sure you get what you’re worth.

You can interact by answering questions and keeping checklists throughout the book to help to develop your creative ideas and keep you on track with your goals. Debunking the myth of “starving artist”, Creative Girl shows how you can turn inspiration into your dream job.

We asked Katharine what key ingredients are essential when starting out as a creative career girl, 'The most important ingredients are gumption, an open mind and a savvy career game plan.'

Luckily the proactive format of Creative Girl means that you can devise your business savvy career plan with Sise's expert knowledge.
Katharine says 'In “Creative Girl,” the reader creates her game plan by evaluating what she does and doesn’t want in a work environment and career.'

Of course, no one's career is completely plain sailing, as Katharine tells us, 'There will always be surprises, but setting goals and making plans means you’ll have a better chance of creating your ideal life instead of being a bystander or leaving it to chance.'
