We become what we learn. So much of the stuff written is way off the mark. There are so many writers who speculate what they think will work in marketing art. In the art business,you will never succeed by guessing. [...]

If life is a struggle then itís time to begin to look for a secure base. Should that mean downsizing or moving, then suck it up and do what must be done to be secure. Itís better to be in a small condo than being behind five payments of a mega-home. Tough times demand drastic changes. As my old coach would say, ďDo what it takes to make things right.Ē [...]
