The Art of Managing Your Career

" The Art of Managing Your Career is a resource guide for self-employed artists and cultural workers in live performing arts; writing and publishing; visual arts and craft; film, television and broadcasting; digital media; music and sound recording, and heritage."

"The Art of Managing Your Career and its discipline enhancements were developed by artists and cultural workers to provide emerging self-employed artists and cultural workers with pertinent and practical information to better manage their careers."

The complete guide is available as six individual PDF files which can be downloaded from the web site above. (Each segment roughly 150 k, so a fast download even on rural dial up.) Individual chapter sections:
Chapter 1: The Culture Biz
Chapter 2: The Art of Self-Promotion
Chapter 3: The A to Z of Project Management
Chapter 4: Money – Keeping Track
Chapter 5: You and the Law
Discipline Enhancement: Crafts

The guide is free (for once an positive example of tax dollars at work). It will be especially useful for those considering developing a 'career' as an Artisan Blacksmith.
