To become an empowered artist, you need to not only create amazing art, you also need to build an engaged audience for and around your art.
The sooner you accept that you, and only you, are responsible for both pillars of artist empowerment, the sooner you’ll begin to live into your destiny.
The most powerful, resonant and compelling art ever created doesn’t mean anything if there’s no audience for that art.
Similarly, the largest, most engaged and deeply passionate audience doesn’t mean anything if the art you’re creating isn’t great.
Create powerful art.
Build an engaged audience.
It’s really that simple.
But that doesn’t mean it’s easy.
