I really liked this title, “What Entrepreneurs Can Learn From Artists…” when I first wrote it. I even had plans to turn it into a major blog post, with a long list of useful, lucid pointers that my readers would find useful and/or inspiring.
But nothing happened.
The line just floated there in limbo for weeks, almost mockingly…
Every time I tried to write the “useful, lucid” blog post, I ended up hating what I had written.
Of course I did.
Why? Because the thought is redundant.
Because in their own way, all artists are entrepreneurs, and all entrepreneurs are artists.
Though their tools and products may differ, both entrepreneurs and artists are in the same game- the making and selling of work that is personally and emotionally important to them.
Artist. Entrepreneur. They’re just words. What’s far more interesting is not what we create, but how we create it, WHY we create it.
Life is short.
