So many artists grapple with the question of how to generate income, either directly from their art or through passive income streams. Many have resigned themselves to the “starving artist” mentality, simply assuming that to be serious about their art means they will struggle financially. For years as the head of LiveWork Denver and the Thriving Artists Alliance, Laura Cowperthwaite has focused her energy on helping artists and creatives find ways to break out of the starving artist archetype and begin to thrive. During this eye-opening conversation, Laura shares some key insights into how artists can change their relationship to money and begin generating passive income streams, thereby freeing up more of their time and energy to create!
