What does it mean to be a successful artist?
We readily throw around the word “success” without defining what it means for us.
I am guilty of the same. My business is Art Biz SUCCESS. My signature program is the Art Career SUCCESS System.
But what does Success mean to you and to me?
In this bonus episode of the Art Biz Podcast (accompanied by a complete transcript), I explore the word Success.
I’ve been examining this on my own for a few months now and, confession—or perhaps it’s a warning—I can go a million different directions on this topic. I’m not going to give you a nice package so that, by the end of the episode, you’ll know exactly what success means to you.
I ask you to go on a messy journey with me. One that takes twists and turns.
But maybe … just maybe … hopefully … it will serve you.
