With any artistic endeavor we meet persons that help us move beyond our current skills into a new area. This module helps us realize how important mentors or teachers can be on our artistic journey.

Any artist, at times, has difficulties with the management (left brain) activities for their art. Some artistsare able to handle all aspects of their art management. Others will need others to assist them so they can concentrate on theircreative energy. Only you can decide what type of artist you are and how much you are capable of doing without sacrificing yourcreative energy.

I am very versatile however there are things I know others can do more effective than doing them myself. I haveno problem assisting others with writing their marketing or press releases, but when it comes to my own, I need another journalist dothis for me. I have found too that by having another write my marketing materials for me they can come from a totally differentperspective. It is refreshing and honest and not self promotion. It is realistic.

There are hundreds of books in print that will assist any independent artists promote, manage and book theirown shows. While this is obtainable, one has to ask what price is paid for this sacrifice. Your art and how it is represented to thepublic is your business. It is your livelihood. However, you must determine what you are capable of, and what you are willing tosacrifice to do it yourself and still remain in control of your creative energy.

For other artists the need for a personal manager, booking agent, promoter never comes into play with theirart. However, it is best to determine early on what you are willing to do yourself, or have your friends, family do and what you canhire out.

Now this may seem silly to you, but realistically, if you have big dreams, you need to plan for thosedreams. As well, I have surrounded myself with many creative people. When I need another graphic artist, journalist, designer,or writer I have the opportunity to network within my circle of friends. Having this pool of creative capable friends is necessaryas I can’t do everything myself.

This exercise is the last one for completion for your game plan. By now you have isolated what your goals areand the steps you will take to get there. You have determined how much time you will need and what obstacles you must overcome foryour dreams to be realized.

Now take all these plans and begin to implement them. Yes, you can redefine, edit or change any step orgoal as you move closer towards your dream. This is normal and one should not feel they are cheating by dropping a step or two. Weevolve and change daily. Your art does to. Using this process you should begin to see your art flourish. Your dreams can come truewith good planning. Good luck to you on your art journey.

Peace and blessings to you as you move towards your dreams.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
