Johanna Patrice Hagarty (or JPH) has personally founded two 6-figure companies and has helped bring in over 10 million dollars for nonprofits and small businesses. She also consults on marketing and development with dozens of small businesses and has worked with the Small Business Administration and several of the largest entrepreneurial institutions in the Western North Carolina region.
With a background in Human Services and over a decade of experience as an Arts and Economic Development Specialist, Marketing Consultant, and Creative Business Coach, Johanna focuses primarily on uplifting under-resourced communities including artists, black and brown individuals, women, and the LGBTQ+ community.
Throughout her work with thousands of individual entrepreneurs, she has distilled a simple business planning model that allows accessibility and support for new and growing entrepreneurs.
Johanna’s aim is to activate creative people so that they can use the power of the arts to heal, connect, thrive, and galvanize. Johanna believes that the solutions to many of the world’s problems will come from artists and other creative thinkers. She believes it is past time to give them the tools they need to create an impact; these people are the Art Heroes.
Whether Johanna is educating visual artists or those engaged in the more innovative arts of entrepreneurship (innovators, app developers, producers), she intends to continue building a platform and encouraging the mindset for sustained Art Hero success.
