Guest: Sheelah Moloney, 2020 Curates
Sheelah has been working in the arts sales sector for over 15 years, 10 of which she ran a successful art gallery working with both established and up and coming artists. Through this work she came to realise that there was a lack of resources for artists to learn about the industry, like the ins and outs of exhibiting your work. This gap created a lot of frustration and disappointment for lots of very talented artists. So, in 2019 Sheelah closed the gallery to focus all her time and efforts on helping artists to create thriving and sustainable business from their art practices by sharing her experience and expertise. Sheelah is an Art Historian (BAhons) and a snap happy photographer. She gets almost as much of a thrill from a perfectly captured moment in time in a photo as she does from falling in love with an artwork. She has fallen, hard, many times and she never tires of it. Sheelah has a strong passion and belief in the importance of art and visual communications for the betterment and development of communities. This is the foundation of everything she does at 2020 Curates. Be sure to visit BizRadio.US to discover hundreds more engaging conversations, local events and more.

Free Training: Taking an Honest Look at Goals & Anti-Goals + Project Management
Welcome to Art Hero’s with JPH, where we believe art can heal, connect and galvanize. This is our second episode of our NEW monthly mini- training series with myself, Johanna Patrice Hagarty. Each episode will correspond with our Art Hero Group Coaching Program and will serve 3 purposes: Our 1hr group coaching live training takes place the second Wednesday of every month at 11am EST. Members get all replays and a direct line to business experts that can answer your unique business questions in a timely fashion. Vist: www.ArtHero.Biz/Current-Programs to learn more about any of our programs and services. BUT for now, let’s dive in! Last month we discussed 3 Tips for getting into the right executive mindset for business (regardless of where you are!) This month the topic is all about goals and project management. Now at the beginning of the year, we are always bombarded with goals and this internal anxiety monster can easily come out (at least in me) feeling like I’ve got to start the year off perfectly right. Well for anyone who knows me and my coaching style, you know that I believe in small changes, aka microshifts- so that’s what we’re going to talk about today. Why those are important, and how to manage those. We’re going: If Pablo Picasso said, “our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.” then I think we can at least entertain the idea of goal setting. So grab a piece of paper to take notes, and tune in while we break it all down for you!

Guest: Simon Pellett, Host of Music On Your Own Terms
Assuming we take the term “grown up” loosely, Simon Pellett grew up in the south of England, spent his teenage years engrossed in art and music and learning to play the guitar. At 20 he met a girl and left the UK, moving north of Boston in the US.and over the years contributed to several different musical projects, while working on his career as a graphic artist. From his early teens, he suffered from anxiety and depression, which caused crippling self-doubt, virtually halting any confidence to join bands or play in public for fear of ridicule and not being good enough. It wasn’t until a childhood friend turned him on to motivational and leadership authors and speakers such as Tony Robbins, that he began to work on overcoming his fears and seeking to improve himself in all aspects of life. After working with various musicians in New England, Simon joined a band that opened for national touring acts, won a battle of the bands, and was interviewed on the radio. The band ran its course, but the relationships in the scene and the experiences were invaluable. With the entrepreneurial and mindset knowledge gained from constantly seeking new books and podcasts, coupled with seeing firsthand the stumbling blocks that bands run into when trying to build a career in music, he launched a podcast called Music On Your Own Terms. This podcast aims to help musicians develop an entrepreneurial mindset, overcome the same self-doubt, anxiety, and depression, and build a community of musicians that work together to improve the scene with the mantra “A rising tide lifts all ships”. Simon is currently based in Texas and along with the podcast he works professionally as a graphic artist for a screen printing company, producing merch for various bands. During his spare time, he writes his own music, works with other musicians recording guitar and bass, helps promote his friends’ bands, and teaches guitar and bass.
