Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy step-by-step guide for becoming a successful artist? I think it’s because we are all different that there’s not a one-size-fits-all (a bit like when you become a new parent!). I know there’s social media but I’ve learned that some artists don’t think about sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience! And I've discovered that there are lots of guru’s/mentors who are actually charging to share their knowledge. That's a great shame really for us artists who are quite isolated and feeling their way reinventing the wheel whilst trying to start a business! I worked in a place for a long time where it was ‘need to know’ which slowly evolved into a more open and a 'communications & knowledge sharing' community... that part was much better! I am really passionate about training processes and helping others if I can.
