Entrepreneur Success Stories Volume 1 is a collection of stories and insights from ambitious people who have achieved incredible entrepreneurial success.

Self described as an “art-trepreneur,” Barker is the owner and president of Barker International Group LLC. She is a plein air painter, graphic designer, photographer, and columnist for and is based in the Bay Area. During the signing, Barker will also read selections from the book by people who have conquered the challenges of starting or running a business. She will also demonstrate painting with passion and spontaneity and lead a discussion on how to turn a hobby into a business.

This event is an opportunity to network and find a mastermind group, business coach, or personal coach. It will provide marketing tips for artists, photographers, and arts and crafts creators. The book is organized in a user friendly format, with stories that address every aspect of owning and operating a business.

About the Author:
anet’s life work has been sharing the beauty and wonders of nature with others. She taught science and outdoor educational programs to children in Colorado, Montana, California, and Washington, D.C. As a creative teacher, she merged art with science to enhance observation and learning skills in her students. Janet worked 18 years in the creative arts industry as a graphic designer, illustrator, photographer and artist. She is currently working full time as an art-trepreneur, making plein air paintings, teaching art classes, leading nature adventures, and bringing art to people who never venture into art museums or galleries. For her, plein air painting and photography represent peaceful and expressive journeys. It’s like a dance with brush or camera in hand, propelled by color, and infused with fresh air and the sounds of nature.
