I took a seminar a couple days ago from Barbara Winter. She said something about business owners that I thought I’d pass along because I think it’s important for every artist to think about as well. Often when a company starts up, they gather venture capital to help fund it. But what about “adventure capital”? Adventure capital? What’s that?
Adventure capital is one’s willingness to have an adventure in their business. When you have adventure capital, you are more willing to experiment and try things out to see if they will fit. It maybe doing something you’ve never done before like travel to Las Vegas by yourself to take a class. Remember last year when I took the pottery class. I had no idea how it was going to turn out, but I would’ve never known if I hadn’t given it a shot. Adventure capital doesn’t have to take money either – it might be trying a new approach at shows or on Twitter.
So, go on today and inject some adventure capital into what you’re doing!
