The B&E Podcast #156
“How to Make Money With Your Artistic Abilities”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
It’s everyone’s favourite topic — money. Or maybe not. No matter what you think and feel about it, it’s a part of our world and it definitely affects us as artists. Making money has long been a tough situation for the majority of creatives out there and in this episode, we discuss how to make the transition as well as explore exciting new possibilities for artists.
POINT #1: “VISION, INTENTION & POSITION”
–A big part of how we make an earning from our art is the place that we hold in people’s minds. We need to get clear on our truthful vision and intention — where we want to go. From there we can put ourselves out there in a more impactful way that people remember.
POINT #2: “GET GOOD, PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE”
– The first thing is to come to a certain place with your work. And that means working at your work, your craft and your art form. At some point, you have to begin letting others see or hear it. Begin with people you trust and then branch further out. Keep creating and keep showing it to people and you’ll get noticed.
POINT #3: “GOLDEN AGE”
– We are at an unprecedented time where we can find an audience with little to no interference or middle man. There are new businesses and economies just arising to enable artists more creative freedom as well as financial support. Use emerging technologies to find your audience and build a career.
