Making Money is Art:
A Dream for Artists is to Create Accolades from the Aesthete
People are driven by their interests and energized by passion. The result is that we often follow our dreams. Both artists and their admirers are inspired by experiencing what we call those unpredictable aha moments and the resulting opportunities that stand before us. Foreseeing just where and when that cerebral magic will emerge, lies somewhere between intuition and fantasy. The choices made to make the journey must be economically supported to realize and achieve an ongoing, sustainably rewarding journey.
Business art is the step that comes after art.
The choice is yours, but before you take that first step, you should acknowledge and assess where you have been before you can fully embrace where you are now, and where you want to be. Whether you have decided today to pivot, begin again, improve on your present status, or be a master of the future, is your choice alone. Together, we will rely on today’s “why” and your commitment to persist without exception. What you do now matters more than what happened yesterday. And what you do now is your choice. And truth be told, that is the secret to creating a new future. Follow us.
Andy Warhol said, “Business art is the step that comes after art. I started as a commercial artist, and I want to finish as a business artist. Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. During the hippie era people put down the idea of business. They would say, ‘money is bad’ and ‘working is bad.” But making money is art, and working is art – and good business is the best art.”
