The Artist Entrepreneur Blueprint: 5 Steps to Growing Your Art Business + Career

 
 

Jeff Goins

Real Artists Don’t Starve: Timeless Strategies for Thriving in the New Creative Age

This is a brilliant book that clearly lays out a practical steps any creative can use to start thriving as an artist. Jeff sets out a manifesto that he calls the “Rules of the New Rennaissance” where he establishes principles to underpin the way you approach your Mind-set, Market and Money. It’s an easy read, highly actionable, and highly recommended! I interview Jeff in Season 2 of the podcast about this and more.

 

 

 

Other books by Jeff that are definitely worth checking out:

 
 

 
 
 

 

Pete Mosley

The Art of Shouting Quietly: A guide to self promotion for introverts and other quiet soulsThis is Pete’s book on self-promotion specifically for ‘introverts, shy entrepreneurs, and other quiet souls.’ Pete was a brilliant guest on the show, and if you want more guidance in his delightfully patient and understanding voice, this is the place to go!

Alix Sloan

Launching Your Art Career: A Practical Guide for Artists

Alix mentions this in on the podcast.  This is the book she created when she realised that there were few, authoritative books on the practical steps artists would need to take in order to start their careers.  This is based on Alix’s years of experience working in galleries, coaching artists, and working with collectors.  It also includes advice from her network of artists and art dealers.

 

 

 

 

 

Grant Cardone (not a guest…yet)

Grant is a one-man sales and media machine.  All of these books are excellent, but the audio versions are even better. Grant reads them himself, and his energy really comes through the speakers.  Plus you get loads of bonus content as he never sticks to the script – always adding more examples, motivation and encouragement.  You can get them all on Audible – click HERE to get a free, 30-day trial plus a free book of your choice to download.

 The 10X Rule: The Only Difference Between Success and Failure

If you want to be inspired to do more, dream bigger, and achieve more, then this book is for you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be Obsessed or Be Average

Another hugely motivating book in Grant’s inimitable style.

“You can be obsessed…or you can be average. It’s your choice. Why not start going full-throttle towards your obsession today?”

 

 

 

 

 

Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life

If you are at all uncomfortable with the idea of ‘sales’ or ‘selling’, then I highly recommend this.  Grant re-frames the idea, even the importance, of selling as something that you already do, and that you need to get better at, everyday.
