The book that inspired artist Red Fracture to make art full-time


After talking to Sean Chapple on the podcast aka Red Fracture, a guy who recently quit his day job to give being a full-time artist a try, he recommended the book You Are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero.



Before I got the book I looked up some interviews she had done to see what to expect.
Here is what I found.

From Business Insider
  • she talks about her journey from a freelance writer living in a converted garage to New York Times-bestselling author.
  • changing your money mindset, getting clear on your financial goals, and stepping outside your comfort zone are all key to building the financial life you want.
  • she finally decided to get serious about her financial situation, especially the way she thought about money and the way she dealt with it on a daily basis.
  • this book is mostly about mastering your money mindset
  • setting financial goals means getting clear on why you want the money, what you intend to spend it on, and how great it will feel once you finally have it in your possession.
From Money.com
  • Imagine if you put all the time and energy you’ve spent figuring out how to cut back and save into figuring out how you can make more money? Instead of assuming it’s an either/or situation – I can either buy a latte every morning or I can pay off my student loans — why not focus on increasing your income and go for both?
  • Learn as you go, but go.
  • Switch from “I know” to “I’m excited to learn more” one of the most profound ways to transform your life is to act like you know very little.
So I’ll give the book a try.
Managing money is not something I put on the top of my to-do list because it’s no fun so I’ll give the book a try and see if it changes that?

Free Music Archive: A talk about the future of music and art on the internet - Tom Ray's Art Podcast 210110

One of my favorite music sites is opening again, the Free Music Archive !  I talk with  Hessel van Oorschot from the Netherlands who's company Tribe of Noise bought the site after it was shut down a few years ago. We talk about his plans for the relaunch of this site. But we also talk about the future of art and music on the internet. How different organizations like Coil and Grant for the Web are trying to find ways to help creators, artists, and musicians build their work outside of an ad-based revenue model. This conversation isn't just for musicians it's a discussion about what the future of art on the web could be and what some of these organizations are trying right now.
