🌈
FIVE YEARS. Five years ago I just started painting with “watercolor”...I put watercolor in quotes, because I was actually using watered down acrylic paint, cheap brushes, and the least expensive paper I could find.
🌈
What could YOU be doing today that will impact your future 6 months, one year, FIVE YEARS from now!? 🌈
In 2014 I had no clue that my kitchen table hobby in our tiny apartment would lead to writing two best selling how-to watercolor books, or get me licensing deals that would end up in collections at Target, Office Depot, etc. it’s so wild.
🌈
So my encouragement to you is...keep investing in your dreams. Take the time to do what you love every week, every day! And don’t stop learning. You never know where it’ll take you!✨#jennarainey

  • Over the years I’ve been fortunate to be able to do some traveling for work. Whenever I come back from a trip, the majority of the pictures on my phone aren’t of the Eiffel Tower or Sydney opera house, but of TILE. I find tile in cafes, alley ways, old churches, etc. sooo inspiring, and it’s where I get a lot of my ideas for patterns! For example, the bottom left piece is direct inspiration from a cafe in Paris (swipe left!) and is a piece that’s going to be included in some licensing jobs next year! I get asked all the time what to paint to build up your portfolio/library for licensing jobs, and the answer is, DO YOUR RESEARCH! Diversify your library and paint, draw, letter, whatever YOUR strengths are. If you don’t know your brands strengths and how to define your voice, well teach you that in my course #brandplusbrand. Doing what inspires you won’t hurt, but having strategy and research is crucial. If you go to my blog today (jennarainey.com/blog), you’ll see I posted some brand licensing examples. So many people don’t understand the word licensing and limit it to just stationery or just for watercolor artists...but it’s soooo much bigger than that. Licensing is a MASSIVE industry and even photographers or influencers with a brand name can license and make money! Make sure you check out that blog post, and our course is $397 right now. That price will be ending Friday, July 19...so don’t wait!

  • Yesterday I taught my first #jennaraineyworkshop in over 6 months🙀! Nearly 7 years ago, just a few months after I started dabbling with calligraphy and watercolor, a shop asked if I could teach workshops. I was a beginner myself but thought, “what’s the worst that could happen?!” I’d taught piano lessons when I was in high school and was always really good at figuring stuff out. Well, after teaching once (the class was sold out btw!), I was hooked. For the first two years of my business, I taught two classes every weekend. I went HARD. It was exhausting, but I learned SO much. I’ve taught my workshops in France, Canada, Singapore, Australia and all over the US, allowing me to see the world and meet YOU GUYS. So, while having a baby this year has slowed me down a bit, it was good to get back and teach floral watercolor to 22 of you at @m.lovewell. As I think back on all these years of teaching, it’s crazy to think how my business has grown over the years...trust me, I have some horror stories that I’ll have to share some time...stuff like supplies being held up at customs, being tricked/lied into teaching at what I was lead to believe was a beautiful venue but ended up being someone’s nasty living room. Lol. I’ve learned a ton about how to put these things on, how to write powerful/impactful curriculum and how to TEACH. In both my in-person and online courses, I don’t hold back! My goal is to change lives and provide people with information that leads to freedom. Whether that’s discovering their ability to paint, or making more money in their creative business...I’m here for it! I guess I’m saying all of this because early-bird registration for #brandplusbrand opens tomorrow. This is the biggest course I’ve worked on thus far and something I truly believe can change lives. It’s crazy to think that the girl who was ordering supplies at retail and had no idea what she said yes to for her first class, is now teaching THOUSANDS of students, worldwide and has seen sooo many of her past students become successful artists and business owners. It’s wild. It’s a dream and your support makes it all happen! There’s no real point to this post...just feeling grateful.

  • ✨Mistakes aren’t bad. In fact, I’m a firm believer that they are SO GOOD.✨ My mistakes have hit me hard, knocked me down, but they’ve also proved to me that I CAN get back up. Mistakes are also those things that you never forget or do again, right? So be grateful for them!

With that said, there are some mistakes that are actually mindsets, that are incredibly hindering. Especially within the female entrepreneurship category. Not to say men don’t struggle with what I’m about to share at all, or to put us into a group…just from my experience with my own business and coaching other female entrepreneurs, I’ve found that we are incredibly obsessed with doing it on our own. The scrappy, problem-solver types. All great qualities, if you ask me, but at times can be a huge hindrance in business.

Go to my latest blog post (https://jennarainey.com/biggest-business-mistake/) to read about the BIGGEST business mistake you’re currently making. Yes, you! And how I made an extra $100K just from ditching this one mindset/mistake 🙀!

•Get inside the minds of product designers at large companies to know what they look for in artists, designers, photographers, etc.
•Understand the in’s and out’s of pricing your work and legal jargon
•Know how to use social media to grow your audience organically and get your work into the mainstream •Become a trend-setting NINJA by understanding keyword strategy and research that will literally bring the brands to YOU

In September, my agent @iamjulieturkel and I will be launching our course Brand Plus Brand. The exact system for starting and growing a licensing business, attracting the right partners and so much more so you can start scaling your creative business!
