It’s not enough these days to stay in your creative studio or thought leadership laboratory and create your art.
It never has been, actually. Walt Whitman and James Joyce found alternative means to get their disruptive medicine out into the world. Manet, Monet, Pissarro, and Cezanne couldn’t get into the prestigious Salon to sell their art. So they forged their own society of artists, sculptors, and painters, took over a series of rooms, and opened their own show.
Thomas Edison was not the inventor of the light bulb, but he was the inventor who figured out how to keep experimentally and then get word out about the value of this then-frightening low-wattage thing.
If not enough people know about your business or your books or the value of your hard work as a service provider or artist or professional, if you are not yet reaching the people you yearn to reach with the return your yearn to earn, then take this poster as a reminder of what you can do this year. And check out the link below to learn how you own it.
This is the Year of Business Artists – for the people who can navigate the artist’s messy interior life, finesse the business of engaging customers and audiences with integrity, and leverage the unprecedented resources to produce and publish elevating goods and services – the new art.
Perhaps now more than ever people fatigued with the World of Buzz need what you create and offer and think. They hunger for new ways to think, to experience, to feel.
They hunger to feel more alive – and business artists are the ones who can deliver.
To be a brave artist or business artist means you challenge the World of Buzz and deliver a different kind of medicine than the white noise being broadcast.
I made the poster above for you and for you to spread around. If it awakens even a little something in you, share this link with someone who needs encouragement or a reframe on what it means to be a brave artist, business artist, or thought leader in these times.
Own your brave medicine. And deliver. (Click to share and uplift others. Thanks!)

There are only a few spots left for this expedition for business artists.
Look what can happen when these otherwise accomplished artists and writers and innovators didn’t shy away from the world and didn’t wait to be discovered or re-discovered: Millions of people have since been inspired to sing the song of the Self, have been cracked open to the possibilities of language and story, have seen lily pads and ordinary people illuminated just a little more impressionistically, and a bulb that once was deemed weird and useless now symbolizes our brightest ideas.
But now is your time.
Thanks for running with me,
