About the speaker:

Former Director of Merchandising and Operations for Isaac Mizrahi, Ltd., professional fine artist and business consultant, Andrea Rosenfeld uses her passion and expertise guiding creative entrepreneurs to greater confidence, clear forward movement and financial sustainability. Andrea consults her clients and students to rise above their business fears and reach their goals through mindful business coaching. “I guide my clients to grow a healthy and strong business by helping them look inside themselves, seeing how they react to life’s challenges, create realistic action steps and “see” their business, the good, the bad and the ugly, so we can capitalize on strengths and combat challenges, together.” Rosenfeld speaks and lives this ideal daily. A consummate connector, she supports others through introductions and loves when small businesses that she’s “matched” produce greatness together. In addition to privately coaching and teaching an engaging group, 8-week business course, Andrea presents her mission and expertise as a panelist and speaker at conferences, symposiums, and workshops. Rosenfeld is adding to her enterprise with an innovative website that will connect artists to industry professionals - launching 2017.
