Jeff Goins: Be a thriving artist (not a starving artist) – Love Your Work, Episode 79
You’ve heard it before. The story of the starving artist. You may even believe it yourself. You may think that to keep your creative integrity, you have to give up on making money.
Jeff Goins (@goinswriter) is returning to the podcast today to tell you about why that’s not true at all. In fact, instead of being a starving artist, you can be a thriving artist.
Learn in this episode:
- How is it that Michelangelo was actually a multimillionaire by today’s standards?
- How did writers like John Grisham launch their careers while having a day job?
- How can you get leverage with publishers, record labels, and other gatekeepers, so they’re chasing after you instead of the other way around?
- What can you do to put yourself in the “thriving artist” mindset?
Jeff’s new book is called “Real Artists Don’t Starve” and you can get it at kadavy.net/dontstarve.
