Resilience: An Interview with Mark McGuinness

Last summer I had the pleasure of interviewing Mark McGuinness, author of Resilience: Facing Down Rejection and Criticism on the Road to Success.

Originally recorded for my members in the Art Biz Incubator, I am able to share this interview now that my members have benefited from it for a number of months.

In the interview Mark discusses:

  • How mindfulness will help you build resilience and how to begin a daily practice.
  • The difference between rejection and criticism and why they hurt so much (especially for artists).
  • How to deal with rejection and criticism.
  • Tall Poppy Syndrome and why you want to be a tall poppy.
