Vinh Van Lam & Stuart Horrex are both very proud to announce the ArtSHINE collaboration with Vibewire during ‘Small Business September’. 
Founded in 2000, Vibewire Youth Inc. is a dynamic non-profit organisation that supports young people to effectively shape their world through media, arts and entrepreneurial opportunities.

Vibewire acknowledges that across the world young people are making important contributions as world citizens, productive workers, entrepreneurs, consumers and agents of change.

The team at Vibewire are dedicated to encouraging and stimulating an entrepreneurial spirit by unlocking the talents, imagination and creativity of youth as drivers of change, addressing important economic, environmental and social issues within our communities.

As founding partners of Quantum Compass, a boutique coaching practice based in Sydney, Australia, Vinh Van Lam and Stuart Horrex work alongside both established and intending entrepreneurs to define their business and design their lives. Most excitingly, Vinh and Stuart have brought together experienced industry professionals, and drawn on their own extensive knowledge and experiences, to develop the Quantum Compass “Art SHINE” programme. 
ArtSHINE is a specialised coaching programme for creative professionals – artists, artisans, crafters, designers, fashion labels… everyone working in the creative communities.

While this is our third year consecutive year delivering workshops as part of the NSW ‘Small Business September’, this will be the first year of collaboration with Vibewire. So, we’re very proud to be working with Vibewire to present this series of workshops.

* Cash flow for creative professionals – Tuesday 13th September 7pm, or Saturday 24th September 10am

Cash flow; the life blood of any business. Discover seven key steps to ensuring the cash flows in your creative art & design practice.

Transition from Full Time to Self Employment:
Are you working full time but not sure for how much longer? Are you wondering how to turn your passion, hobby, or skills into real income? Are you ready to be your own boss but not quite sure where’s the best place to start? This is a workshop for those thinking of making a transition from full-time employment to self employment. For some it means opening a restaurant or cafe, for others it’s becoming an artist or designer. It could be a move into consulting, or using your skills, knowledge and experience for your own profit and gain rather than for somebody else… But here’s the trap, and the danger… One of the biggest issues for most new start businesses is cash flow. How many small businesses are profitable from day one? How long could you survive with little or no income as your business gets off the ground? We’re here to show you another way!

As part of a small group in an informal workshop environment you can take the time you need to explore how the cash flows in your business. With real world examples and direct indusrty experience we’ll explore the ways your can measure, assess, and create cash flow. This workshop is relevant to all new start, and small business intenders.
