Selling art through an agency?

I would like to hear what you all think.I'm starting a sales agency serving interior designers and possibly some high end retail shops and clients by connecting them with artisans producing handmade products. I'm talking mostly about things like furniture, architectural woodwork, major accent pieces, textiles, etc.So what do you think about offering to find original art and artists? I know interior designers (who are my customers) use and need it, but art is significantly more difficult to make…See More

Luke, it's interesting to me that we have several common interests and experiences, including growing healthy food and working with neutron meters!  I'm went to your saltmakers.com website and am fascinating by your chicken system.  I plan to have land for that some day (living in an apartment right now, so no chickens allowed).  I'm curious to hear about your long term health issues, and how you worked through them.  I've had some health challenges as well (injuries and resulting chronic pain), and my journey in overcoming those has blossomed into me pursuing a new business venture.

Hi Luke,

Welcome to the Unlock Your Passion group!

I'm so glad you've decided to join.

One of the best ways to get a lot out of the group is to start a discussion or join one. 

Feel free to go ahead and jump into the discussion we have going on right now.

It's an exercise I like to have people do where they name their top 3 favorite movies to see how they might be connected to your passions - we'd love to hear yours.

I wish you much success in your pursuit to live and work in your passions. 

I look forward to connecting with you further in the group.

All My Best,

Adam Rico

Thanks Luke, you are very kind! I accept your help.

Hi Luke -- Welcome to the 48 Days community. We're glad you joined.

This is the idea and social networking site for people that want to create their own opportunity.

I'm curious, what are some of your ideas for moving into the work and life you've always wanted?

I see you joined my buddy Kent Julian's group. That is a good move. He's a great guy. We've been friends for years. Here's the link to the audio podcast we did together.
