breaking the rules in creativity and business with paige wery of the good luck gallery on the dear handmade life podcast

Delilah and Nicole share their recipe for a tamarind margarita and chat with Paige Wery, the owner of The Good Luck Gallery in Los Angeles. There’s only one real criteria to be a candidate for wall space in this Los Angeles Chinatown spot – you must be an outsider artist or someone who has not received formal training.

Delilah, Nicole and Paige share resources on how they educate themselves on running a creative business, the importance of a multi-layered education and they break down what they’ve had to deal with to start up creative businesses that they never went to school for and why, in the end, sometimes breaking those rules in the best idea.
