Shakespeare, the Creative Entrepreneur

By Sandra Lee Schubert | March 2, 2009

In his blog The Shakespearean Guide to Entrepreneurship Mark McGuinnes outlines how William Shakespeare went from a hack for hire to a creative entrepreneur. It is a simple lesson all artists can emulate, providing a good framework for any person in a creative field.

The lovely image of writer sitting by a window looking over a lovely landscape waiting for inspiration to fly in on butterfly wings is certainly romantic but not entirely true. Some artists have the advantage of a beautiful scenery while others must find their creative juice on a subway.

Become creative about your business, as well as, your art. Take time to learn from the masters, like Shakespeare, who diversified, took chances and made a life that let him concentrate on his craft.

    Forty years ago, as an aspiring author, I began counting Shakespeare among my influences. Fifteen years ago, teaching English in China, I used a film version of Much Ado About Nothing to spur much writing and speaking among my students. And now, as an entrepreneur, I can use him yet again. He really did offer something for everybody.
