Company of Players

It’s been almost a year since I published this ebook, which I wrote as a framework for growing my own business.

So has dancing at work, worked for me? Well, my business has tripled in size, in terms of clients, contractors and turnover. It’s all satisfying, meaningful work that is fun to do, and I’m really enjoying growing a creative team or a company of players as I’m calling it.

I’ve had some great book reviews, and sales are slow, but steady with requests for a print version from design schools, and an audio versions from artists.

That’s going to be my focus for the next few months along with kicking off some Live to Air Hangouts . Sign up to the mailing list if you are interesting in joining.

“Ahead of her time, Helen Baxter is setting the scene of what’s happening now and soon to come for working in the 21st century. A comfort to those on the fringes of traditional work today and an ideal resource for modern learning educators.”
