Issue 154 - 05 | The Thriving Artist Manifesto

By Jeff Goins
Published June 14, 2017 12:00 p.m.
“For centuries, the myth of the starving artist has dominated our culture, seeping into the minds of creative people and stifling their pursuits. But the truth is that the world's most successful artists did not starve. In fact, they capitalized on the power of their creative strength.

From graphic designers and writers to artists and business professionals, creatives already know that no one is born an artist. Business and art are not mutually exclusive pursuits. In fact, success in business and in life flow from a healthy exercise of creativity. Being creative isn't a disadvantage for success; rather, it is a powerful tool to be harnessed.”
