Kevin Kelly, founder of Wired magazine and polymath, wrote this fantastic essay. It’s one of my all time favorites. An absolute must-read.
Talk about empowering!
If we can go make art, and get 1,000 people to love our art, so much so they’re willing to consistently engage with and pay for it…we can have a career. Doing the work we love.
Way easier said then done, I know. Especially when you drill down what a “true fan” really is. But it’s possible. It’s measurable. It’s actionable.
Find one true fan.
Then a hundred.
Then five hundred.
…your lifelong career.
