The concept of the starving artist is so widespread that sometimes it’s hard to imagine anyone—other than a few outliers—really succeeding in their craft. But my guest today says we shouldn't buy into that idea, and that it's actually much more possible to succeed as an artist than people think.

Jeff Goins is a writer, speaker, entrepreneur, and the best-selling author of five books, including The Art of Work and You Are a Writer (So Start Acting Like One). His award-winning blog is visited by millions of people every year, and through his online courses, events, and coaching programs, he helps thousands of writers succeed every year.

In this episode, Jeff shares insights from his new book, Real Artists Don’t Starve, and explains why we shouldn't buy into the concept of all artists struggling to make ends meet. Listen in to hear his advice for any serious artist who wants to get their career off the ground.
