I believe that it is possible to build a rewarding and sustainable life as a creator, but it requires us to think differently about branding, marketing and our calling. It's not enough to just create amazing work. We have to find and build our tribe.
This book is written for artists, writers, musicians, artists, craftspeople and anyone who wishes to create something wonderful and sustainable. I show how to get a handle on our true talents, find our purpose and invest in our future self. It's time to stop mindlessly promoting our work and start building a community that will sustain us. I cover the approach and many of the tools that I have found helpful in my journey and in the journeys of those I have interviewed over the years.

“As I read Sean Howard’s book “Creators 2.0” one word kept returning to my mind: companion. This book is a companion for those who struggle to create, structured around perennial questions and also uniquely modern dilemmas. But it is also a companion in a deeper sense, with its genuine concern and affection for those on an artistic path. This book does not shy away from the doubts and difficulties artists face, and, though it offers many interesting perspectives, it presents no easy answers. But through it all Sean extends a reassuring hand in warmth and friendship. “ – Bernice Landry
“Sean’s advice and guidance was tremendously important to me when I recently took my own leap. With Creators 2.0, he has distilled all the lessons from his journey into an inspiring, practical guide for anyone who is dreaming about or blazing a new path.” – Eric Portelance
“This is an excellent guide for individuals (artists and other solopreneurs) who are trying to identify their passion and/or align it with purpose, and income! I highly recommend it. “ – Heather Collins
