‘Together, these two have created a flourishing business’ - Vogue

The Art of Starting guides you from the first step right through to the everyday running of a successful creative business. Whether your passion is in craft, photography, food, fashion or design, this book is full of indispensable advice.

Iona Mathieson and Romy St Clair are two entrepreneurs who learnt the hard way. Their practical advice helps you to use what you already know and develop future proof skills in a fulfilling job that works for you.

In The Art of Starting you will:
– Discover your strengths, foster community and create meaningful client relationships
– Learn how to value yourself, your product and negotiate fees
– Find out what school didn’t teach; from tax and accounting to social media management and developing community

Iona and Romy started their floristry business SAGE Flowers with no formal training and less than £1,000. In a few short years, they grew a floristry empire, have been lauded as London's go-to florists, and have an enviable client list including Mercedes, Nike, Glossier and Fenty. In The Art of Starting they share tips and secrets from experts and entrepreneurs so that your creative business will succeed too.
