A Successful Art Career Has Clarity.
Clarity: noun (as described by dictionary.com)
- clearness or lucidity as to perception or understanding; freedom from indistinctness or ambiguity.
Some People Are Born Lucky.
When it comes to being clear on what one passion’s is and whether to pursue it, some people are born lucky.
It seems such self-knowledge is in the DNA. The lucky ones did not seek it, it always just was. For the rest of us, we are seekers of art career clarity.
Turning a Murky Mish-mash into a Clear Brew.
Most of us lack crystal clear clarity on art career choices, or just career choices, including me. I’ve been a fireman, a soldier, and a Teamster. I have worked in a steel mill and helped build giant thousand mile pipelines. I have been an entrepreneur, advertising and tradeshow rep, and a strategic alliance marketing executive. At various times, I’ve owned an insurance agency, and a direct advertising and marketing company. My day gig is sales and tech support for one of the fastest growing companies on the Internet.
As you know, I also am a blogger, workshop leader, podcaster and an author focusing on helping you achieve art career success. My fourth book, Art Marketing: How to Get Your Work Seen and Sold is scheduled for a mid-April publication date. Due to its potential broad appeal to virtually all visual artists, I am confident it will be my most successful book yet.
Sometimes Clarity Comes Late for a Reason.
I believe I have traveled this crazy patchwork of jobs and career choices to lead me to this point. That is, to use my accumulated knowledge and expertise to help you propel your art career. Can you imagine no longer being dependent on a day job, or on distribution channels that you don’t control to get your work sold? If you are up for it, I know that together we can make these things happen.
Keep Watching for What Happens Next.
My clarity is this: I can only succeed with my goals if I help you succeed at your goals. Whether you are new to reading my blog, or have been with me for years, I ask you to stay tuned. Truly, the best is yet to come for both you and me.
Gaining Clarity on Career Goals Is Essential.
If you are making marketing plans and trying to move to a full-time status, or further secure your future as an artist, you are severely hampered if you lack clear art career goals. If you want to enjoy the kind of success you believe your talent and creativity deserve, you need to be clear on your art career goals. I plan to help you get there.
