Getting ready for Surtex could be very intimidating and overwhelming. How do you stay organized and make sure you remember everything and following all the deadlines? I use a simple traditional planner with sticky notes that I can move around if I need to and now my new friend Mindmeister! Please find image below to see how I use this mind mapping app. I found this resource very helpful to stay on task. It is visual and keeps everything in one place. I learned about this tool and other invaluable tips from super great book "Art licensing Trade Show Success Secrets" by Tara Reed. If you like me, new to art licensing business, this book a must! Currently I am also taking Tara's class for artists, who will be exhibiting in trade shows this year, where I learn a lot about the business and have incredible support from Tara and my new artists friends from the group. Hope you find this helpful :)
