Making Money While You Sleep: Creating Continuous Cash Flow from Your Art

Presented by Jeanette Smith.

Originally aired in 2008.

Licensing—creating income from your art, illustrations, designs, and characters—is BIG BUSINESS!

The Licensing Business, which creates more than $180 billion a year in retail sales, has a constant need for new talented artists. If you are not yet familiar with this mega industry, then this is your opportunity. Learn from industry insider Jeanette Smith, former Vice President of United Media and the business powerhouse behind the multi-million dollar Dilbert™ phenomenon.

Get the inspiration you need to seriously consider this practical and sustainable business model.
