The B&E Podcast #056
“In the Game of Industry the House Always Wins”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
As artists, it’s important for us to acknowledge how we participate within our industry which is there to meet its own needs. When we become a slave or entirely driven by how the industry operates we undermine our own integrity as artists and can lose our entire sense of purpose.
POINT #1: “THE INDUSTRY SERVES ITS OWN INTERESTS”
-Whether you like it or not, artistic industry has its own interests. It is not interested in being fair to you or giving you back what you feel you’re putting in. By not putting all of our eggs in one basket and expecting some kind of return from it, we can refocus on doing the things that matter.
POINT #2: “STAY TRUE AND TRUST”
-Getting competitive and comparing ourselves to our peers is typically a study in paranoia. By trusting that we do indeed have an original authentic voice, we can stay focused and present on simply creating.
POINT #3: “NO JOURNEY IS THE SAME”
-There is no one way of getting to what we dream of achieving. There is no one size fits all solution in artistic mediums. Some journeys will move quickly, others may take many years and look vastly different than others — what matters is that we do what matters to us.
