139: Where Do I Start?
The art of the start is the hardest thing.
One of the questions I get asked most often in my Nion Life Community is, “How do I start?” And it’s an important question. You can be someone with passion, you can be good at your art, but it’s completely different to take this thing and start to make a career with it. How do you spread the word? How do you start making money? Today on the show I’m going to give you a few pointers, a few of my thoughts on how to get started with a career in art.
You must be patient, you must work hard, and you must create.
