Can you have a fulfilling creative life AND make money?
Not only that. Those two are inseparable.
Creativity and business are two ends of the same stick. Only if a business is creative and if art is profitable, can you live a truly fulfilled artistic life.
To walk this balance, you must face misconceptions and establish creative daily practices that together will get you where you want to be: serving your tribe, expressing your unique creativity, and making a good income.
