There are a lot of creatives who don’t make enough to sustain a good lifestyle on the back of what they create.
They need other sources of income to support their creative pursuits.
And these are not only hobby creators but those who want to make a living as a creator.
They are in this state because they don’t do what a profitable creative does.
Here is what a profitable creative does.
Creates value for her audiences as a plumber or electrician does
Committed to not working for free for long
Improves her craft continuously
Invests in building relationships
Doesn’t always sell, sell, sell
Doesn’t wait too long to sell
Doesn’t feel entitled
Doesn’t sell cheap
Invests in herself
Happy creating and being a profitable creative.
