If you're like most artists, you could use a little more cash flow. Maybe a LOT more. If so, you're not alone. It's one of the biggest challenges that my new consulting and coaching clients face.

This episode should help. It's the first in a series of podcast lessons on how to monetize your talents as an independent artist.

This episode is all about the surprising benefits of consistently sharing your creative work. I examine two case studies: Jonathan Coulton and Emily Hope Price.

Bottom line: When you commit to regularly sharing your music, art, words, talents, etc ... you create opportunities to get exposure, attract fans, and make more of an impact with your art.

I feel so strongly about this I decided to launch the 30-Day Build Your Fan Base Challenge to help you (and me) share our work on a consistent basis.

This four-week program starts January 3, 2018.

The new year is right around the corner. How will you define “success” as an artist in 2018? For the purposes of this video, I define success as “making an impact” with your music, words, art, performance, etc.

In other words, it’s the level at which you touch people and bring value to their lives through your art. To reach that point you must expose your creative work and connect with people.

Listen to this episode for my best advice on how to do that in 2018.

When tragedies and senseless acts of violence take place (as they did recently in Las Vegas), how should we respond as creative people? What can we do about it?

As a musician, writer, artist, poet or performer with a fan base to speak to, what can YOU do about it? What should you say? You may feel helpless. Should you do anything at all?

Only you can answer that. But in this episode I offer a few important options to consider.

Here's a link to the written blog post:

Here's the audio to my most popular YouTube video in recent months. It racking up more than a thousand views in a week. In this short clip I offer an alternative view of celebrity deaths and the widespread notion that "2016 sucked!"

I must have struck a nerve, because the view count keeps rising.

I recorded this the day after George Michael died. After that Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds passed away. Add them to a long list of icons that includes David Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen, Muhammad Ali, George Martin, Alan Rickman, Gene Wilder, Garry Shandling, John Glenn, Florence Henderson, Glenn Frey, and more.

There are many ways to respond to all that happened in 2016. Take a few minutes to listen to this for a different perspective
