The Creative Rebel's Guide to Starting a Business by Violeta Nedkova

When I started my business in 2015, I also shared how I did it in an article, which resonated with so many people that I ended up turning it into a highly detailed and actionable guide.

This guide. 

It covers everything from the steps I took to the tools I used, and even the mental blocks I had to overcome.

Stop waiting for permission! If I can do it, you can do it, too. 

 
 
Violeta’s story is an inspiring one and this guide is filled with great tips and an easy to follow path for creatives seeking to start a business they are passionate about.

--James Qualtrough

I had the feeling that you knew the stage I'm going through and every sentence resonated with something deep inside! You give me hope, you made me smile!

--Laura of Zen Yoga

I don't think I could have written a better business guide myself. You answered every single question I had and even gave me the links I was looking for all this time.

--R. Martin

 
It was like a wave, you can pick and choose what you want to work on and have personal examples of why it worked. Love it!

--Emmaly of Eba Totes

I liked that you highlighted the struggles that you went through, that the journey is not always perfect.

--Gina Charles, freelancer

The Creative Business Companion by Violeta Nedkova

The Creative Business Companion is an unconventional guide for creative business owners.

It is also a compilation of "reality checks" (as one reader told me) that will make you challenge your assumptions about business and marketing and how you can reframe them to make them yours.

Instead of passively reading, you will find yourself working along as you go - doing exercises, answering questions, and even doodling on mindmaps.

It's creative business like you never knew before, the creative rebel way.
