Today we are joined by fellow artist and writer, Jeff Goins. He just came out with the book "Real Artists Don't Starve" and I loved it so much, I wanted him on the show to chat about all of it.
As just a little bit of a background, Jeff wrote the national bestseller book called "The Art of Work" which I also loved and so I was really stoked to have this conversation with him.
Today we're gonna chat about which parts of his new book didn't make the cut. We talk about how challenges always beckon new opportunities. We talk about the value on having constraints as a working and thriving creative. We talk about the differences between a starving artist and a thriving artist. AND we chat a little about the financial mindset required to become a thriving artist.
Even if you don't classify yourself as an artist, this is gonna be a good episode for you to listen to because Jeff has some really valuable nuggets of wisdom to offer ALL of us today.
With that, I give you Jeff Goins!
Your Brave Take-Away from today's episode is this: I want you to follow this episode up with making a list of reasons why you're different than the people around you. Sometimes objectively looking at our strengths and uniqueness is all we need to see that we in fact do have the potential to be successful.
We'd love to hear all about your favorite parts of today's Bare Naked Bravery. You can find Jeff Goins and myself on facebook, twitter, instagram, and more. Go ahead and tag us so we can cheer you on and see what you're up to.
