As an American, I`ve been inspired to support Obama`s campaign. As an artist, I`ve been inspired to create art. As an entrepreneur, I`ve been inspired to combine the two into a little niche business.
I illustrated a poster of Barack Obama and built a website to sell it. I just launched a few days ago and have been slowly spreading the word.
I`ve always felt the need to keep politics and business separate. In this instance, they are one and the same. But
as a result, I am not publicizing this poster to my already established client and email
Instead, I have other plans to market the poster online and offline at a local level within the grassroots efforts of the campaign.
I`m going to donate 50% of my sales to Obama`s campaign. I`m not interested in making much money on this one, just a few bucks for my efforts after production costs, shipping and the donation. (I`m usually much more focused on the bottom dollar.)
I put this topic in the people who inspire section and it should be obvious who inspired me. :) Regardless of which candidate you support, has anyone else been inspired by the current political climate to do something with their business?
