We, Ellen Gartner Phillips and Julia M. Wilcox, are excited to begin posting to the Kelley Blog. We are the founding authors of Arts to Business, a blog documenting our experience transitioning from careers as professional musicians to careers in business. A2B seeks to be a resource for all career switchers: we will be reposting our articles from the Arts to Business page for the Kelley community. If you are interested in reading more, you can visit the full A2B blog at artstobusiness.com.

We write this blog to share our experiences, with the goal of helping others see the valuable parallels between conservatory and business school. Even in these first weeks of orientation, it is clear that our backgrounds lend themselves well to this new adventure. Tomorrow, we look forward to our first day of school in a long, long time. There will be ups and downs, and maybe some sideways swipes, but we’ll be posting all along the way. We invite you to follow us as we transition from the arts to business. And so the journey begins … from the practice room to the board room.
