I believe that artists are so valuable to the world; I will do everything I can to help them
— Alyson Stanfield

Episode Summary

Welcome to another episode of The Zen Courses Show! I am thrilled to have Alyson Stanfield joining us today. Alyson has been working with artists for many years. Today, she’s here to share a behind the scenes look at Art Biz Coach and her Art Career Success System (ACSS), which has helped many of her clients grow their careers. Alyson has a lot to share about building an art career, the challenges she faced in her business journey, and some tips as a coach working with artists.

A quick note from Alyson: Since this interview, Art Biz Coach has become Art Biz Success.


After teaching artists for a while, Alyson developed a framework called the Art Career Success System. ACSS is comprised of four programs:

  • The Creative Content Camp, which helps artists create their contents.

  • The Fan Boosting Formula, which teaches artists about cultivating relationships in your art career.

  • Art Biz Accelerator, which is about the places where you show and sell your art.

  • Lastly, we have the Magnetic You which is all about presentation, speaking and branding as an artist.
