Real Artists Don’t Starve – Jeff GoinsDownload Real Artists Don’t Starve ebook. Real Artists Don’t Starve: Timeless Strategies for Thriving in the New Creative Age.
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. In Real Artists Don’t Starve, Jeff Goins debunks the myth of the starving artist by unveiling the ideas that created it and replacing them with timeless strategies for thriving, including:
steal from your influences (don’t wait for inspiration),
collaborate with others (working alone is a surefire way to starve),
take strategic risks (instead of reckless ones),
make money in order to make more art (it’s not selling out), and
apprentice under a master (a “lone genius” can never reach full potential).
Through inspiring anecdotes of successful creatives both past and present, Goins shows that living by these rules is not only doable but it’s also a fulfilling way to thrive.
From graphic designers and writers to artists and business professionals, creatives already know that no one is born an artist. Goins’ revolutionary rules celebrate the process of becoming an artist, a person who utilizes the imagination in fundamental ways. He reminds creatives that business and art are not mutually exclusive pursuits. In fact, success in business and in life flow from a healthy exercise of creativity.
Expanding upon the groundbreaking work in his previous bestseller The Art of Work, Goins explores the tension every creative person and organization faces in an effort to blend the inspired life with a practical path to success. Being creative isn’t a disadvantage for success; rather, it is a powerful tool to be harnessed.
“Jeff Goins doesn’t just show us how to be more creative. He also reveals a path for turning our art into business and our business into art. Every entrepreneur, writer, and artist should read this book and take notes.”
–DANIEL H. PINK, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human
“Jeff Goins has established himself as a fresh and dynamic voice inspiring us to get out of our own way and produce our best work. Real Artists Don’t Starve is the work of angels: a book every aspiring writer, artist, and creative must read.”
–STEVEN PRESSFIELD, bestselling author of The War of Art
“Anyone trying to make a living from their creative work will find much to steal here.”
–AUSTIN KLEON, author of Steal Like an Artist
“Jeff puts to rest the myth of the starving artist. Artists not only deserve to be well rewarded, but there are more opportunities than ever for them to make it happen. This book is not only the blueprint, it’s also Jeff’s personal artistic manifesto. And now it’s mine.”
–JAMES ALTUCHER, author and entrepreneur
“Goins dispels the myth that being a creative is some illusive, mysterious dimension reserved for a chosen few. A great book for anyone bogged down by old-fashioned ideas about what it takes to be a thriving artist.”
–LISA CONGDON, artist and author of Art Inc
