The wonder of money. I know, its a word you’re not supposed to use in connection with art. Close to sinful. Yet, yes, I do love money. For the sake of what I can do with it. Buy food. Take classes. Help others. Help you!
Anyone even contemplating running a business should love money. Money is what makes your business show it’s worth. NOT the worth of your art. The worth of your business!
“Being an artist is like being an Olympic athlete: years of sweat and dedication to build up skills, lots of sacrifice along the way, lots of obstacles to overcome.
All that, and no gold, silver, or bronze medals.”
What would you do if you suddenly had a lot of money? I bet you would quit your day job with an improved income. 🙂
Not being famous or well known or well paid has nothing to do with the quality of your performance. If you’re suddenly in the limelight. With money rolling in. Are you a better artist than last week?
Don’t judge yourself from your reputation. Make sure you constantly hone your skills, and get a business running too. It is easier to market yourself when you have a decent income. Marketing costs!
Auditioning is marketing. Putting up a recital by yourself is marketing. And needs more marketing.
How many artists become famous long after death? Remember Schubert? He didn’t even own a piano. He never heard any of his symphonies. Could not afford to have them played. Orchestras cost. Even then.
Was he a bad composer because of that? We know the answer. He was one of the best. Ever!
With some money he most likely would have reached recognition before he died.
Let me guess. You are going through “years of sweat and dedication to build up skills, lots of sacrifice along the way, lots of obstacles to overcome.”, yet no recognition in sight?
