4 Moves To Ignite The Passion For Your Art Business

Bang! Pop! Pow! Is that the sound of leftover fireworks I hear Or is your art business on fire I would love to hear that it’s your business on fire – that you are Hot – Hot - Hot for what you have to share with the world. If you’re only hearing fireworks outside your walls and not inside your body, there are four things you can do, and keep doing, to ignite the passion for your art business. 1. Embrace your role as CEO. When you decide you want to earn money as an artist, you are no longer just ...


Transitioning to a Full-Time Artist: Dianna Fritzler (Podcast)

Over the past ten years I’ve watched Dianna Fritzler go from full-time artist to full-time marketing employee and back again. I had the pleasure of helping her a little along the way. I wanted to share Dianna’s path so you can hear how she set a target and took deliberate and consistent steps to reach that target in a very short timespan. During her first year back as a full-time artist, Dianna tested a lot of options for income and gained clarity on what she wants moving forward. And she missed...


Good and Bad News: Your Work Is Never Done

Newsflash! You’re just getting started. Whether you think this is good news or bad news depends on your disposition. Some people feel fulfilled and complete every day. I envy them. I want more. Not more stuff, but more out of life. More experiences, more love, more friends, more cats. (Only kidding about that last one!) I know it’s not fashionable these days to want more. They say I should be content where I am and live in the moment. Can’t I want more and appreciate the present I have come to r...


Overcoming a Major Setback: Annie Salness (Podcast)

Artist Annie Salness suffered a stroke almost 8 years ago. While many artists would have given up when faced with the trials Annie had, she met the challenge and kept moving forward. It wasn’t the single challenge of learning to make art again with her non-dominant hand. Annie also had to relearn how to walk, speak, write, and drive. She’s one of the bravest and most determined people I know. This is the story of a true artist - an artist who has something to say and is committed to making sure ...


Sifting Through Noise that Throws You Off Course

I’ve taken great pride in the fact that I’ve written a weekly newsletter since March 30, 2002 without ever missing an issue. It’s a story I’ve recounted repeatedly. Until now. I skipped last week’s (April 26, 2018) edition - on purpose. I did it because I want to own a better story. I don’t want to be known as the woman who wrote a weekly newsletter for more than 16 years. I want to be known as the woman who changed the lives of artists for the better. I had to let go of the old story in order t...


Confronting Your Professional Legacy: David Paul Bayles (Podcast)

Last fall I received an email from David Paul Bayles, who was a member of my class at the time. The email read, in part: Recently The Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley (third largest special collections library in the U.S.) created The David Paul Bayles Photographic Archive to create a home for my life’s work. I am driving down to meet with them on Monday to place a large number of prints and oral history audio files into the Archive. Whoa. How cool is that A major institution deemed David’s work ...
