BY POPULAR DEMAND, a workshop on how to plan for success as an emerging artist/entrepreneur! What do you need to do to succeed? Plan for work. How do you plan? Map out these 4 things: branding, products, marketing, and sales for everything you do!


This workshop culminates in a breakout session where participants are put into groups and tasked with planning the 4 Quadrants of Success for mock startup companies that they will create on the spot!


Romero will then listen to their presentations and reward the group he feels best embodies the 4 Quadrants of Success.


The 4 Quadrants of Success gives attendees a framework that is easy to remember that will teach them how to set goals and how to achieve them!






The 4 Quadrants of Success has been presented at:

 Cal Poly Pomona 

 UC Riverside
 University of Southern California (with the Community Literature Initiative)
