A Giveaway, A Survey and A Gift!

edited 4/10 Congratulations Melinda Peterson for winning the giveaway! And thank you all for taking my survey!

Lots to do and tell you today! As you may have seen my card was in the March Olive Box, the feature was watercolor.  YAY! Did you know that I teach Watercolor 101 here?

Now I get to give away the March Box to one of you! It has the fabulous book by Samantha Hahn in it! Remember when I interviewed her?? She does SUCH fabulous work and this book is visual eye candy. Wouldn’t that be a nice goodie to arrive in the mail? I also thought that the winner might want to pick out a print from my new Etsy Shop!! I just added this floral yesterday! Just comment below to enter to win! You have until next Wedensday at 12pm EST to enter!

I do have a BIT of a favor to ask you!

monicashop  You know that I am a girl that is always plotting a good business model and as you may have heard in my own story, that I had initially intended to bring on sponsors for the  show. After all, I figured if someone supported me and my endeavors that they were really supporting you and your endeavors.

I have thought  through different versions of this and I think it would make sense if we (all of us :)) could land a year long sponsor. Now that Smart Creative Women has expanded to a podcast version, I thought it might be time to try to bring a sponsor on board.

I do know that the first thing they will ask is,  “What are your demographics?”

Um. Well. Even though I feel like I know you all, I don’t have stats that tell me your age, where you live and how much you earn well, because it just seems a bit impolite to ask! For heaven’s sake, I’d feel more comfortable asking your bra size! But I am putting on my business hat and asking you in a survey. I just figured if you know what my long term goals are from the survey, you wouldn’t mind filling it out. After all, I have had some of you all email encouraging words to keep  Smart Creative Women going. Getting a fabulous supportive sponsor in place would enable me to do that. So bra size, eye color, chocolate preference and allcan you answer a few questions for me? There are only 12 so it is quick!!

 Be sure and click through them all and hit submit survey at the end! Thank you so so much!

Your age?

Where do you live?

What is your household income?

How long have you been following Smart Creative Women? (And thank you very much for following!)

What is your creative outlet and if it is a business, do you do it full time?

How often do you visit SCW?

Have you ever visited the website of something or someone you saw on SCW?

Would you consider supporting a sponsor of Smart Creative Women?

If you are a business owner what are biggest challenges?

How many interviews do you listen to a month?

Would you ever take an online course during the summer months?

What are your favorite types of interviews?

    Congratulations Monica! The Olive Box is stunning. As always you are an inspiration to everyone who wants to be earning a living on their creative wits… I still hear my father echoing as I entered art school…”You gonna sell those paintings in the park?” Well Dad… maybe! But I’m definitely selling them online :)

    Fun survey Monica- and it sounds like you might be offering a summer ecourse of some kind? That would be lovely- I’ve missed your Smart Creative Styling course the past two times but a summer course would be an ideal time. Hope you get some concrete info on your interviews. I’m so glad you are looking for different ways to monetize the podcast, blog, and interviews.

  • Jen

  • Melinda Peterson

    Over the short time I have been following you I have been charmed by your laugh, impressed by your knowledge, encouraged by your bright and cheerful attitude and inspired by what you are doing to unite creative women. As one who came to the creative scene late, I couldn’t appreciate this fountain of creative wisdom more! THANK YOU!

    • http://www.smartcreativewomen.com/ Monica Lee

      Wow! I am blushing…I am so happy you are getting something out of it! No such thing as coming on late to the scene-you are just at the right time to bring your own wisdom to it!

    Congrats Monica on the Olive Box, your Etsy shop, and your new studio space. I’m also trying to set up my studio in the attic and have just gotten done priming everything. Now I’ve got to paint it all…. remind me to cover my hair next time since I got primer in my hair. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
