We frequently hear entrepreneurs talk about turning passion into a business. However, within the fine arts space, it is not an easy feat to design a creative experience for customers of all ages. In today’s episode, our host John Rebecchi (M.B.A. ‘83), Ph.D. is joined by Sue Wilkowski (B.F.A. '85), founder and owner of Casa de Spin, art director, author and an art specialist for teens diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
With Sue's fascinating background in teaching arts and passion for spin art, we’ll hear how it led her to open Casa de Spin, a first ever paint event venue combining spin-art with step-by-step painting instruction. Sue will share with us the impact she faced in her business during the pandemic and the need to pivot for survival. We will also discuss the importance of tapping into your creativity when overcoming entrepreneurial challenges.
