About the Author

Jeff Goins is a writer, speaker, and entrepreneur. He is the best-selling author of five books, including The Art of Work and Real Artists Don't Starve. His award-winning blog Goinswriter.com is visited by millions of people every year. He lives with his family just outside of Nashville, where he makes the world's best guacamole.

Overview

Are you a painter, a writer, a start-up founder or a cabinet maker? Wondering how to avoid not paying the rent while you pursue your craft? Well, that’s where Jeff Goins’ Real Artists Don’t Starve comes in. The book offers 12 strategies to create your art, promote your art and make money from your art — no matter what it may be. Though published from a Christian-themed publisher, this is a remarkably secular book that creatives of all stripes should enjoy. While the book seems, at times, to be loaded with common sense, the book does a fine job of pointing the neophyte artist towards being successful. That alone is worth the price of admission.

To go into any depth about this book would be to start revealing some of the book’s strategies, so you may want to just skip this review and proceed to the book itself. It’s clear, though, that Goins has done his homework, offering up examples of his theories from interviews he conducted to books he read. The book is so thorough that the sources section of the book, in the very back, takes up more than 12 percent of the book’s total running length, according to my Kindle.
