"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."

"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."

If you have read more than a few books/blogs about being an artist and making a living, particularly those of a more inspirational bent, you won't really find anything new here.
Despite that, the way that the stories are told is nicely done. I enjoyed it and found it a light and quick read and will probably read it again at some point. It's one of those books that's better suited to someone who needs encouragement rather than practical instructions.
Yes, in fact, it's possible to get paid for work you care about. This book is a fine handbook to get you there.
So, once again, thank you, Jeff! For your dedication to writing from your heart!!!
It's clear Jeff did a lot of research for this book, much of it based on actual interviews. Jeff Goins goes a step further and tells us how and why thriving artists thrive, making the book both inspirational an practical.
If you're an artist who wants to be a thriving artist, read this book.
Everyone who is looking to do more in life, wether it is starting their own side business, follow a passion, go for that college degree in music or liberal arts, writing, Jeff explains how the myth that has been passed down generation to generation is a myth. One can make a living as an artist.
The book explains everything in a journe-like way and provides encouragement with each and every page one reads.
This is the book every High School Grad should read. Every College student self-doubting their decisions should pick up and everyone that wants to reinvent themselves has to read so they know where to go and how to do it without starving nor being jerk-ish.
If you want to start taking steps to become better, detoxicate from the wrong ideas imprinted in your by others and start taking control of your craft, buy this book. you will not regret it. I can personally guarantee this.
