How do you define success? [50]

Art Juice podcast what is a successful artist

In our first episode of 2020, we tackle the idea of success. Many of us have been planning for the new year, but what is it that we want to achieve? Is money the ultimate measure of success? Is recognition more important?

What about our success as a friend or spouse or parent? In this episode, we dig into our own personal definitions and what they mean as we look forwards. We also discuss how much our ideas of success change over time – what we wanted at 25 is never going to be the same as what we want 20 years later. 

If you are an artist who is looking to grow your audience and expand your business this year, if you like the idea of group support with a personal touch then my Connected Artist Club may be for you… this is my monthly artist membership for artists at any stage who are serious about their ambitions, but also want to keep developing with soul. Click the image below to find out more when we open.

Places will be limited again but hopefully not in as much panic as last time when places were filled in 18 minutes (!) You will hear more about what the club includes so you can decide if it is a good fit for you.

Our conversation this week also covers second-hand art books, a Tate Modern exhibition that Alice really didn’t like, and the newest star on Tik-Tok (the world’s fastest growing social media platform). Is this another platform we should be paying attention to? Goodness, I hope not!

    I agree with you about the Eliasson show Alice – glad someone has the courage to say so. What a lot of cheap tricks masquerading as art! I too liked the fog tunnel though, and also the room full of 3D geometric shapes was cool. But otherwise …

      Did you see the documentary? Maybe I just hoped for better things… I thought that was good. He’s clearly a very interesting and interested man, and he’s certainly achieved amazing things so who am I to judge? 😉
