  1. Gary, I'm an illustrator and Designer. Every one of your videos gives me value wether you're talking to a real estate group or people in the tech space. It's so fucking practical, that you can plug it into ANYTHING. The fine art community is often hesitant to let go of the old way, I believe their need for grants and wealthy buyers is similar to people needing investors in silicon valley. Instead of creating art for their entire audience rich or poor, they are living and dying by the next grant from the board of arts. It's all about brand.

  2. Love this one. I help a lot of my friends create production lines to create a bread and butter bottom line of income. Then that offers an opportunity to do more ellaborate pieces. a little different then Gary here, but it's a balance. I have actually gone all in on the least expensive, lowest priced product I can make but have apprentices that are making them under my umbrella.

  3. The most untouched topic on the net, EVER! I've seen and read plenty of books on how to convert artists to being your own agent, your own business manager, or your own boss. I think many take the wrong approach of just selling without considering. Without considering the audience, without considering the genre/media/content and how it serves the right purpose or "market". Not meaning to sound too over the top or classist, but not everything is for everyone and that's okay.

    A perfect example of one of @*****'s point about going for either cash or wealth is today's article on Business Insider's "12 documentaries on Netflix that will make you smarter about business ( I personally am OBSESSED with documentaries. So many of these I've seen already. The one that really stood out in the article today was the "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work". Joan is the perfect example of someone who created and recreated her career for the long haul! 


  4. Woot! I'm making the rounds on Gary's channel AGAIN!! Seriously, I'm applying what you said…I've started bringing in some help, just a little for now, to handle something's that need to be done but don't have to be done by me. I'm working smarter and harder. Upgraded some tech, speed is good. Using sound business structure applied to my art because my art IS my product. Back to the basics but ramped for the future. Building, Gary…I'm building. Not a big deal now but I will be.

  5. I'm a writer and have been following Gary's shows for a little while now. "0>1" is what caught my attention. Anyway, I've seen the value in the shows and questions and this answer summed up what I've been formulating in my head. I've been looking into dark posts and taking some of my time from "writing" and spending it in cultivating my blog's feel and theme and re-engaging on social media platforms. Not to mention grilling the few Millennials I can about Snapchat (something I would've never done!). This show is awesome and I refer as many people as I can  to it. Thanks for the insight!
