If anyone on your audience is a writer or any type of artist, then Jeff Goins’ new book, Real Artists Don’t Starve is for them! The book releases June 6.


In this book, Jeff dismantles the myth that being creative is a hindrance to success by revealing how an artistic temperament is, in fact, a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Here’s all the information you need on the Book Launch:

About the Book

In Real Artists Don’t Starve, Jeff debunks the myth of the starving artist by unveiling the ideas that created it and replacing them with timeless strategies for succeeding, including

  • steal from your influences (don’t wait for inspiration),
  • collaborate with others (working alone is a surefire way to starve),
  • take strategic risks (instead of reckless ones),
  • make money in order to make more art (it’s not selling out), and
  • apprentice under a master (a “lone genius” can never reach full potential).

He uses inspiring anecdotes of successful creatives both past and present to show that living by these rules is not only doable but it’s also a fulfilling way to succeed as an artist.
