Frequently Asked Questions

Who do you work with?

I work with artists, dealers and gallery staff with whom I can share my lifelong experience in the art business and who enjoy my personal approach.

What areas of coaching do you take on?

Topics can vary: career development, art production, creativity, your mission, artist-dealer relationships, commerce, web presence, developing and honing artistic, business and sales skills, business arrangements (making sure these are fair to all parties and enforceable), goals, and when they arise, sometimes personal issues.

How does it all work?

We begin with a one-time exploratory session, which can last up to three hours. During this time, we interview each other, and at the end decide if we wish to continue working together. If we do, then we create a coaching package tailored to what you need, within a budget that fits your situation. The coaching itself is a combination of one-on-one 50-minute sessions (by phone and/or on location at your studio) and unlimited email in-between sessions.

In most cases, I create a “jump start” short program, and when that is completed, we review how far we have come and what else is needed.

Where do you do this?

If you are local (Southern California within a 100-mile radius of Los Angeles) that’s wonderful, but it’s not imperative. Technology shrinks any geographical distance between us. Between web cams, web sites, email, and fast Internet access and telephone, we get the work done.

How much does it cost?

Because you come to me, like all artists, with a unique set of circumstances, I’ve found it most helpful to tailor a program to fit your situation. There are many variables including your location, how much time we need for your career path, and your budget considerations. Once I know where you are, and where you want to go, I will be able to give you a full proposal including cost.

I read every submission, and I promise that you will hear from me as soon as possible.

P.S. From my coaching files:
When I tell Yoram about my artistic doubts, frustrations and wonderings, or when I question myself about my career, how or what’s next… he gets it. Yoram knows exactly what I am trying to say. And his response always helps me regroup by replacing my confusion with clarity. —Hagit Shahl
