Your network is everything.

People should be at the forefront of your art marketing.

You probably already know how important it is to be connected for a successful art career. 

And you've likely been making important connections all along. 

But how are you at making intentional connections on a daily basis? How are you at identifying the people you want in your network, reaching out, and following up?

I have taken other planning workshops and they have been totally overwhelming and just left me frustrated or freaked out and running in the other direction.
Your workshop was nothing like these and a wonderful, productive experience. Not overwhelming at all! 

I went from skeptical on the first day to completely loving your methods and systems by the last day.  I walked away from it with a plan in hand and a fresh, I can do this attitude.

I am so happy I took your Artist Planning Sessions class last month and I look forward to taking more. They really got me back on track. I haven't felt this focused and inspired in a long, long time! I needed some structure and organization to get going.

Hi. I'm Alyson Stanfield.

I appreciate your reading this far on the page. 😉

The People Plan focuses on what I believe to be most true about your success: That you NEED people to help you succeed.

I'm the author of I'd Rather Be in the Studio: The Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion, leader of Artist Planning Sessions, and the host of The Art Biz podcast.

I love to work with clients with a growth mindset who challenge themselves with increasingly prestigious goals.

Attending your planning sessions was one of the most valuable things I've done personally or professionally. I had about 45 balls in the air and felt like I was drowning.

Just identifying my projects on paper and then listing out the tasks required for each really helped clear my head. Then applying the project approach with a paper schedule and task list was huge.

I now have a solid plan of attack for my ambitious projects. Several people close to me have commented about how focused and energetic I’ve been since putting my plan into action.

There's no promise that you'll make thousands of dollars or land a prestigious solo show. However, I do promise that if you do this work, you'll have a plan to nurture relationships that can sustain you for years to come.
