"I'm going to quit my job, and do my art full-time."
That was the thought that changed my life at 6:00 am on a frosty, January morning in 2006.
Since then, I've made 6 figures in my art business and lived the creative life of my dreams!
As an creative business strategist and teaching and performing artist, I have produced a poetry book, released two soul-jazz albums, written-directed over 35 student-theater productions, and performed across the United States and Europe. In 2004, I started a business to teach STEM, language arts, history, and social justice to 100,000 Pre-K–12 students through creative writing, theatre, music, and visual arts. In 2018, I was part of the first class of NPR's How I Built This fellows.
In 2019, I launched Artist Makes Money (AMM), one-of-a-kind, online education courses with a big goal of helping 10,000 visual, performing, and literary artists make more money in their businesses.
My latest online workshop, Artists Need Newsletters Too (ANNT), helps artists build an email list and create a newsletter to sell their art products and services.

Artist Makes Money is for visual, performing, and literary artists at all levels. A big requirement for AMM is the willingness to be open and teachable to really be able to implement the concepts.
It isn't right for people that want a fast, "get rich quick" solution, or people who don't know how to treat themselves and others with kindness or respect.
Typically, 45 minutes to an hour is what I'd recommend each week for any of the courses in Artist Makes Money.
Of course, if it gets good to you, as much as you'd like.
Part of what you'll learn in Artist Makes Money is that small, consistent actions lead to big results.
There's so much free information out there, that it actually creates confusion around what the next best step is for your art business.
Artist Makes Money online courses keeps you and your art business on the path to success.
In my research, I haven't found many business resources that serve all artists, no matter their medium, and teaches them how to sell the work or service they love.
Artist Makes Money is all showing you the next step in your business for you to live your #bestartistlife
