My Why and Why the Price?

Conversation Sparkers for Artists is the first in my new Artist Advocate Series. It's my legacy project, a way to give back to the art community that has served me well for decades. As such, I'm more interested in reaching more artists than charging high prices. Besides, I'm enjoying the challenge of constructing an affordable email course that delivers so much value in simple, elegant ways.

The next Artist Advocate Series topics will be as unique and individually personal as this one. The fact that I can deliver something to artists with so much potential goodness for only $20 makes me happy and proud. It's a personal effort to push back against high prices for everything else these days. 💐😎     

When You Invest in Yourself. The Payoff Is Huge and Rewarding 

You will reap benefits by giving each lesson an hour of your time. It's an investment in yourself that is guaranteed to improve your communication, conversations, and perspective on life and business. The residual effect of your improved interpersonal skills will benefit you for a lifetime.

I suggest you schedule a return to the course in six months or a year. Revisiting the content after you have used some of it in the field will be eye-opening and massively beneficial to your growth.  

Relationships Matter

Who you know is a huge factor in your success as an artist...
and you have much more control over that than you realize.

Everybody needs somebody sometimes.

Whether seeking gallery representation, negotiating with shows and exhibitions, or getting into schools and grants, you engage in many vital conversations that directly affect your career. This course helps you manage those talks to your benefit.

Everybody needs somebody sometimes 500x500

Conversations and communication with your connections form the foundation of relationships.

You will discover that being intentional about what you need, who can help you, and how you connect with them transforms everything. Your mindset, confidence, interactions, and outcomes will all improve.

When you choose making intentional connections over hoping your random contacts pan out, you stack the odds in your favor. Besides, artists don't have the time or money to chase unqualified prospects.

Conversations create connections. And connections naturally evolve into relationships that become patrons, buyers, and fans.
