ArtSpa for Entrepreneurs

WHO CREATED ARTSPA?

ArtSpa was created by entrepreneur, artist, author, founder of SavvyArt Market and ArtSpa

 

Karen Mayer

 

In 2010, mid-career I experienced an epiphany, which resulted in quitting my sales and marketing career to build SavvyArt Market, an online art gallery. I had the vision of bringing the joy of art to people and their homes. It was an abrupt decision to activate my artistic side, but a calling I could not ignore.

I did not plan for all the challenges I encountered. The online environment was uncertain.

untitled-12.jpg

I couldn't find a small online gallery to model. Back then Shopify was not invented and sales funnels were not known to me and I never heard of GoDaddy, so I paid way too much money to build a website and market my gallery. I was slow to launch, questioning everything. I struggled to grow a community of followers and made many expensive decisions that didn't work out. I worked for free to better understand the business. The economy was still recovering from the 2008 recession, but I started the business anyway, because that's what entrepreneurs do. Answer a calling with perseverance and resilience.

I admit I wouldn't have been so resilient if I hadn't initially focused on restoring my connection to my innate creativity and inner peace for a year after I quit my high stress unbalanced lifestyle, working full-time and not taking care of myself. And when my business success looked uncertain, I turned inward towards my creativity skills to find the answers. That always worked for me.

In 2019, I began to notice how the grind of daily life was negatively affecting people around me, worsening from the challenges posed by the COVID pandemic.  I got busy and created ArtSpa, an experience for people using art to reconnect them with their creativity, sharing the joy, fun and benefits of creative expression. The push to do so was confirmed in the form of a message on a Yogi tea bag, "inner peace creates peace in the world." This fired my passion to learn more about creativity.

 

I dove in head first and consumed research about creativity, volumes of studies and books from experts. I was inspired by what I learned about how much your creativity skills or lack of creativity can positively or negatively affect your life and business. With my love of all things art, I am very excited to share what I learned with all of you.  

 

At ArtSpa, we sincerely believe your well-being, happiness and success is linked to your creativity skills.  Our mission is to help entrepreneurs develop and reconnect with their creativity, to spread information about its benefits, creating inner peace one person at a time!"
