In 2012 Dave Conrey started focusing on helping creative entrepreneurs. His own artistic pursuits took a back seat but he felt he was tapping into his true purpose—to help others grow their creative business. Most of all, he wanted to do something about the starving artist mindset that is so pervasive in the creative community.

So many individuals have lost the joy of creating. They’ve lost focus. He wants to help them maintain that joy, refocus, and grow their business using good ol’ sticktoitiveness. As he says on his own site, “You can read post after post on how to improve your art, your life or you business, but none of it is going to happen until you Take Action Now.” This statement gets to the meat of Dave’s message.

We learn why he joined Marie Forleo’s B-School (a group with about 40 guys and 1,000 women ;)) We discuss branding, earning a steady online income, and the daily practice of showing up. I also ask him a question I’ve been asking many people these days: Can you create an ideal life and business? This question leads to a great discussion about the lure of internet fame, age, family life, and leaving a lasting legacy.

Changes in his job led him to the world of selling art and a lot more. In this podcast you’ll find out all about Dave and his “a lot more.” I know you’ll like it.

My favorite message from Dave? If you’re not working on something that feeds you then go find the thing that does.

What You’ll learn:

  • The mechanics of getting clients online.
  • About his Fresh Rag Masters mastermind group.
  • The importance of finding your best creative time.
  • Why his best meditation is weightlifting.
  • A few details on his podcast setup.
  • Why you should consider Facebook advertising.

Questions I ask:

  • How did you find your calling and build an audience around it?
  • Why does the starving artist mindset frustrate you?
  • What is showing up to you? How do introverts show up?
  • Can you create an ideal life and business?
  • What are your main forms of online income?
  • How do you use Facebook advertising?
