Artistic Success & Nerves

Check out this video blog post on which I make a personal confession ... and transform it into a crucial marketing lesson that applies to music, art, literature and just about any creative pursuit.

  • Hi Bob.

    You have such a great way of tying different events into the whole marketing and branding arena.

    First, glad you are looking and feeling better. Second, you are right about the day to day opperations of getting places.

    Often, like the feeling kids get while going on a family outting, it often seems as if we are getting nowhere. We keep asking ourselves "Are we there yet?" "Am I really getting anywhere?"

    Often it seems as if we are doing the same things over and over a lot of the time. But it is this repetitive DOING which gets us to a destination where we can then say we have gotten someplace.

    Thanks for writing. Keep getting better. God Bless.

  • Brave disclosure- fortunate it's temporary!! Sending you hopes for a complete recovery.

    That is quite the lesson, for both you, and the reader...

    Although I am not a musician, as a visual artist, it's a parallel. Thank goddess you mentioned shows where no one arrived- phew!*
    wasn't just me :)

    So thanks for returning to my e-mail in-box and for posting the clip.

    Creative Wishes
