Need some motivation?

“When you have some goal out here that you’re reaching for, stretching for, that takes you out of your comfort zone, you’ll find out some talents and ability you have that you didn’t know you have.”

“Make your dreams become a reality, because otherwise you will be working for someone else to make their dreams a reality”

“What reason can you remember, that you can call on, that you can reach on, that can make you get back up — find that reason!”

“If you’re not where you want to be, if you don’t have what you want to have, it has nothing to do with the system but has everything to do with the fact that you are not making the sacrifice”

“Greatness is a lot of small things done well.  Day after day.”

“It doesn’t take any effort to be a loser.”

“If there is no enemy inside, the enemies outside can do us no harm.”

1,000 True Fans

A must read on marketing and product adoption.

A creator, such as an artist, musician, photographer, craftsperson, performer, animator, designer, videomaker, or author – in other words, anyone producing works of art – needs to acquire only 1,000 True Fans to make a living.

A True Fan is defined as someone who will purchase anything and everything you produce. They will drive 200 miles to see you sing. They will buy the super deluxe re-issued hi-res box set of your stuff even though they have the low-res version. They have a Google Alert set for your name. They bookmark the eBay page where your out-of-print editions show up. They come to your openings. They have you sign their copies. They buy the t-shirt, and the mug, and the hat. They can’t wait till you issue your next work. They are true fans.
