Podcast: Real Artists Don’t Starve (with Jeff Goins)
We’ve all heard the myth of the starving artist. Everyone knows that artists have to suffer for their art, live in squalid conditions, and experience great pain in order to produce brilliant work.
Except, according to today’s guest, that’s not really the case.
Jeff Goins has just written a new book called Real Artists Don’t Starve, and on today’s show he shares some of the differences between starving artists and thriving artists, and how you can make enough money from your art to sustain it. (If you pre-order the book before its June 6 release, Jeff is also offering bonuses worth $200.)
