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

Want to know how to be your own boss as a musician, writer, visual artist, or performer? Great! But, if you really want to earn a full-time living in the arts, don't get stuck in this common trap.

On this episode, pulled from a new video I just posted, I explain what this obstacle is and how to overcome it.

As you know, I've been a solo entrepreneur in the arts for many years, so I have a lot of hard-won advice on this topic to share.

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.
