“I make art. It makes me happy. There’s a certain number of people that it also makes happy. And that’s better for me than scrolling through social media feeds and looking at all the terrible things that are happening.” ~ Marc Scheff.

Want to learn how to live like an artist and build a successful creative career...but feel like you’re getting nowhere even though you’ve been working really hard?

With social media, Kickstarter campaigns, and networking (not to mention all the other things freelance artists have to do to get their work out there), you can start to feel pretty burned out if you’re not careful.

So that’s why you might find this week’s interview with artist, Marc Scheff, really helpful.

Because, with a young family to support and his own art career to look after, he’s had first-hand experience of just about all the issues an artist can face.

And now, with, a site dedicated to helping artists move forwards in their careers, he’s sharing everything he’s learned with you.

Key Takeaways From This Interview:

  • Why networking and collaborating with other artists can make your projects happen
  • Why you need to be patient and keep hustling to eventually get the results you want
  • How Marc’s teaching modules and bootcamps are helping artists...and some of the biggest questions most artists ask
  • Why authenticity is the key to building a successful social media presence...but why all those likes and shares don’t necessarily equate to sales of your work
  • What really drives a viral post on social media...and how a chance photo with Ivanka Trump (yes, really!) brought Marc more, erm, 'attention' than he ever really wanted
  • Why your art career requires constant attention and development...and why even the biggest names still have to do exactly the same kind of things as you do
  • Why regular exercise can have a much bigger impact upon your creativity than you might think
  • How to make time for yourself and get a really good night’s sleep (Tip: This is also super important for creativity)
  • Why learning how to ask for help from others can help you reach your goals
  • Why limiting your time on social media really can enhance your general wellbeing
  • How to find out more about Marc’s dedicated artist programs and finally start having the creative career you’ve always wanted.
