1. What initially caught your attention about the Artpreneur Program?
I believe that the universe definitely conspired this to happen for me because I was desperately looking for something in the field of graphic design and I came across the program through an Instagram advertisement. I was looking for something new and fresh, and the variety of styles it offered and the numerous career options one could pursue after the program caught my attention. What intrigued me the most was how sure our mentor Balaji Sir was about building a career for anyone who joined the program and the only thing expected from us was our time and faith in them.
2. You were in touch with the Program Team for years before you joined. What made you finally take the leap of faith to join the Program?
Initially, I had doubts about the program's genuineness because of the commitment and surety with which they were offering it. When I missed the opportunity to join in the first year and saw the work of fellow Artpreneurs over time, my interest and belief grew. There was a certain gut feeling about joining the program. I wanted to work for myself and not under anyone. A typical corporate life was a big NO-NO for me. Artpreneur offered exactly what I was looking for: the ability to set my own schedule, be my own boss, and most importantly, achieve financial independence. In the end, I knew I did not want to regret not taking this chance.
3. Coming from a business background, it can be tough to get your family's support for pursuing a creative program and career. How did you manage to turn it into a reality?
Yes, that is true. There wasn’t enough support from some family members because they could not believe someone could actually make something out of art and design as a career. They saw me giving my everything during the 9 months of the curriculum. I don’t think I would have shown the amount of interest for anything in life as much as I did for the program. It wasn’t easy for me either, but eventually it got better and they saw me work towards my goals.
4. Did you face any challenges during the program? If so, how did you overcome them?
Yes, I most definitely faced challenges during the program. Committing 4 hours to class and 6 hours to assignments was no joke. It still felt like I needed more than 24 hours in a day. There was also a lot of self-doubt, especially when I saw others adapting to what was taught in a better way and wondering where and why I was missing out on things. But slowly, by talking to my educator and mentor and with their nonstop support and push, I followed what they asked me to do and got better. There were times when things were tailored so I could make the most out of what was being taught.
5. Returning after a break to pursue your passion can be challenging. What was it like for you to get back on track, and how did your educator support you in the process?
I agree that it was challenging because I had my own ups and downs after completing the program. I was not happy with myself because I was too hard on myself and restricted myself to a certain timeline in my head. But deep down, I knew I still had the passion to do something for myself. Getting back on track was not easy either, but all it took was commitment, discipline, passion, and a positive mindset. I can say with certainty that if it weren't for my educator Vivek's support, motivation, selflessness, and guidance, my journey would have been very different. It was his one random call one evening that changed my life midway. And before I knew it, we were planning on working things out in the best possible manner.
6. Your portfolio is focused on branding. When did you decide to pursue this interest in branding?
Even before the program, I was curious about logo design. As a kid, I enjoyed games of that genre, so I knew I had a curiosity to explore this side of design. But after the program, and particularly the branding module, my commitment to the assignments and interest in working towards them grew. The fact that it is a whole field in itself and that learning is never-ending means I enjoy the process and it holds a lot of my interest. That's how I knew I wanted to focus on this eventually, which would keep my soul and pocket happy. 😊
7. You have shown a strong interest in entrepreneurship from the beginning. What are you currently doing?
Thanks to my business background, the word "Artpreneur" itself provides the answer. The fact that I could learn art, design, and business was one of the biggest takeaways. Currently, I have my own design studio, Prisha Designs, which specializes in logo design, brand design, and package design. The aim is to help new businesses build their identity and provide solutions for people who want to build brands and upscale their business.
8. Where do you see yourself in next 5 years as a Creative Entrepreneur
I see myself as someone who can master this field, grow my business and be able to spread the knowledge to the right people and try to make opportunities for someone who is looking for the same.
9. Apart from the technical skills, did you acquire any skills for your personal growth?
I certainly did. It all starts with time management and eventually balancing your work and life. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes a way of life. There is so much guidance and clarity provided that you begin to question your priorities. Once you start trusting the process and have faith, things just fall into place. Most importantly, I learned to have an open and positive mind to adapt the teachings during and after the program.
10. How likely are you to recommend the Artpreneur program to a complete amateur who aspires to become creative?
A 100/10, not bragging but it is just about trusting the process and going with the flow of curriculum. I can vouch that nowhere in this world would there be a university, college, a degree or certification course that would have such quality content, genuine educators and the most supportive team. I would just ask them to take a leap of faith like I did and I am sure they won’t be disappointed given that they want a career and life transition.
