What’s the secret of success?
Here are some traits of artists who know.
They create a network. Many times it’s the people you know who can help you succeed rather than how talented you are. Successful artists seek out beneficial relationships and build on them by following through, and by giving – referrals, feedback, friendship. And, they are open to receiving as well. Connecting with a mentor, a supportive peer group, potential collectors, gallery owners, and others, is easier when you take a genuine interest in them and in their businesses. What goes around comes around.
