It's been exactly seven years since I stepped on that airplane to France. I was so frazzled that when I arrived, I slept for 24 straight hours.
Selling everything you own, saying goodbye to everyone you know, especially your Mom, and then taking a one-way flight to a new life is exhausting.
Particularly when there's nothing waiting for you on the other side.
It takes faith in the invisible to be an artist. Think about it, we're always working with ideas that are unseen until we create them and make them real.
Only this time, I was doing it with my life.
Luckily, when I jumped the universe caught me. Several times, actually.
And over these past seven years, I've learned a lot. About life. About art. About business.
But you don't have to run away to France to learn these lessons.
I'm just putting the final touches on a very special new workshop. It's called The Working Artist Manifesto: Making Sense of Art, Life, and Time.
These are the lessons I've learned from life inside the art world and what it means to be an artist. It's the hard won knowledge about our relationships with time and money and with our work.
But this workshop's not really about me. It's about you.
Because by the time you finish it, you'll have created your very own Working Artist Manifesto.
The Working Artist Manifesto will be released next week. I'll be sharing this powerful new workshop for FREE. But only for a very limited time.
Because on November 16th, I'll be opening the next session of The Working Artist! (cue applause) This new session will be bigger and better than ever.
So watch this space!
It might just change your life.
