I'll be honest.
It is rare that I am interested in pitches for The Art Biz.
Most of my guests come from me being tuned into my students, clients, followers, and the art world in general.
However, I never say never.
If you think you have a good story, please read on.
Who I Interview
I only interview the following people. Period. End of sentence.
If you don't fall into one of these categories, you can pitch to me, but you'll be wasting your time (and mine) and you'll never receive a response.
What business lesson do you have to share?
It must be something you have actually experienced and can speak about with personal knowledge.
I'm not interested in ideas you're considering or what you've read might work. I want to hear about your successes and, yes, failures.
What has worked for you?
My listeners would like to hear your successful business tips and stories. For example:
- Lynn Goldstein shared how she implemented e-commerce on her site and sold 18 original paintings in 3 months.
- Daryl Johnson spent a year cleaning out her life to prepare for a big move and sold a lot of work in the process.
- Sean VanderVliet partnered with local chefs to create signature dinnerware for their tables and has much bigger plans for the future.
- Adele Sypesteyn pulled her art out of all her galleries so she could lower the prices, sell directly to collectors, and keep more money in her pocket. Ali Cavanaugh has a similar story.
What hasn't worked?
Failures are equally interesting (usually even more so), and we tend to learn more from what doesn't work than from successes.
- Where did you waste some money, how did you learn from it and what will you do differently next time?
- Why did no one show up at your open studio and what would you do differently next time?
