What I find most satisfying as a business coach is supporting creative entrepreneurs to resolve the internal conflicts that stop them in their tracks. Today’s guest has dealt with the mother of all conflicts, m-o-n-e-y. We discuss why it is challenging to make money from something you’re passionate about or a talent.
I sat down with photographer and author David duChemin to discuss his latest book “How To Feed A Starving Artist – a financial field guide for creatives, solopreneurs, and other anarchists”.
We discuss everything from the #1 money issue most creative business owners face to how a semi-debilitating accident changed “everything” in very unexpected ways. David shares why he too, feels this is the best time in history to be a creative business owner and how a diversified business will be necessary in the future.
It was an honest and forward reaching conversation that is filled with vulnerability.
As David said, “You can’t really connect with your audience unless you are vulnerable. It was a welcome experience to hear David share his most vulnerable truths in an effort to help others follow their bliss. From the onset of our conversation I found David to be brutally honest and insightful.
David duChemin is a driven artist, creative professional, entrepreneur and life-long adventurer. He educates and inspires through stunning visuals and hilarious travel stories, and insights, from a life spent outside and abroad. David is a world & humanitarian assignment photographer, best-selling author, digital publisher, and international workshop leader. And a heck of a great guy!
A refreshingly honest, informative, and candid chat that I’m sure you’ll enjoy as much as I did.
