"One of the most important books you'll read all year."-Kristine Kathryn Rusch
"It's the most art-friendly business book you can imagine."-Writing Slices
"I would never in a million years have thought a non-fiction business book would make it to one of my Best lists, but this has been a year of What you think is irrelevant. Why this book? Because we've seen how vital it is for us creatives to line our ducks up; there's no safety net beneath the indie life unless it's one we-individually-weave for ourselves. This book is all about that." - Narazu, the best indie sci-fi, comics, and culture

Even if you are actually bad at those things, here's a good place to start looking for how to improve on that.
You're probably creative person that would rather spend time creating instead of reading another book about how to turn your art into a business. That's OK. What's in this book is not going to take a lot of time to read. It's also a good book, filled with the humor and witticism that only Michael could bring to a topic like managing your creative business. Rather than get bogged down with over-complicating the management of a business Michael breaks it down into several phases: the Long Slow Slog, Mastering the Trade, Measurements, and Worst Case Scenarios. Instead of trying to make you replicate his process he instead gives you guidelines and advice for how to manage expenses, plan for success (and failure) and how to keep going even when the economy isn't forthcoming with big wads of cash. The book also includes exercises for applying the concepts in each chapter.
This is the first book I'd recommend to anyone who wants to turn their art into a living as it contains hard-won knowledge and tips that would help any creative person. Heck, it could be the first receipt you need to keep for tax season.
Lucas doesn't shy away from the tough topics, including a frank discussion about what is a fixed expense and how to rethink your fixed expenses. I see too many consultants whose fixed expenses are so high, they can't choose their clients. They can't work with people they want to work with because they need to pay the bills. If you've ever been in this position, read this book to see how you might change your decisions.
Lucas' trademark humor and wit shine in this book. Read this book and laugh your way to managing your cash flow. Give a copy to your significant other and have that person also read it to see how to win at the Cash Flow Game with you.

I'm not an artist by definition but i do consider my hobby as some sort of creative work, so there is a lot i can adapt for my use.
