Episode 17 – Mars Dorian – How to Find your Authentic Voice and Regularly Create Great Art

Becoming a creative entrepreneur can be hard.

You may have this intense passion to draw, paint, write, or create beautiful pieces of art? but finding your niche, finding your voice, and finding the right clients can be a big challenge. My guest on the show today is Mars Dorian, creative brand specialist, consultant, and author of three Sci-Fi books.

Mars has an interesting story about his journey into finding his creative voice, capturing the audience he wanted to target, and building a successful creative business from virtually nothing.

It all started with a Wacom tablet ? a device that allows creative artists to draw and illustrate digital artwork directly onto the computer. On today’s episode, Mars shares his creative journey into entrepreneurship, how he discovered his true life mission, how he works with clients to develop creative branding services, as well as how he found his “voice” and incorporated it into his writing and his artwork.

Please welcome Mars Dorian to the show!
