Almost the entire second half of the book is focused on entrepreneurship & self employment, & half of THAT is specifically for someone like the author who has products that they'd like to sell to celebs (like jewelry). Those topics aren't really what I expected the book to focus so heavily on and they aren't the reason I picked it up.

I liked the journal exercises (coping with a dull day-job, fear chart, emotional/mental well-being). The rest of advice & topics were simply okay. The
The chapters on pricing and small business planning were useful but most of this book wasn't particularly inspirational or helpful for my particular creative path (for one thing, I already know what fields I'm pursuing, and I have much better general resume/interview books already.) Sise's example "Creative Girls" (and, ugh, do I hate "girl" for anyone over 25) mostly seem to be very successful NYC-based creative types. I'm not chasing celeb business with my makeup or design in LA or NY; I'm doi ...more

I really loved this book. I was a bit put off at first by the girl part. It seemed slightly condescending. But the book is full of very practical, helpful information on everything from writing a business plan to pricing and how to tackle creative block. I also found the journaling exercises to be very helpful in figuring out what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go with it.

My husband picked this out for me at the library, but I ended up buying my own copy. It's one of the most inspiring, helpful and reassuring books I've read, and one I'll be referring back to throughout my career. I'd definitely read another book by this author.

I did this as a book group on my blog to help me really dive into the information presented within the pages. I loved Sise's writing style and her information was fresh and insightful. I am always a fan of behind the scenes interviews and she provided MANY!
I found this helpful, practical, and encouraging. It got me thinking in the right direction and scribbling notes to myself. Some parts didn't apply to my situation, but enough did that it was worth my time.
Solid info, but it needed a more thorough proofread before publication. And as a Creative Girl who makes her living as a copy editor, I have no problem with taking away stars for this issue.
I was a bit worried about what the tone of this would be like -- girl in the title and all -- but it's actually a pretty common-sense guide to making a living in a creative field.
In our teen nonfiction section.
