Gallerist and Author Bridgette Mayer has spent the past two decades running a multimillion-dollar gallery business and leading artists in crafting their careers. In this episode, we talk about overcoming childhood abuse to find her true passion in the arts, her love of working with artists, adjusting your money mindset and business end of your practice and her new book, The Modern Artist's Way! The Modern Artist's Way guides you in defining what makes you happy, how to value your work, and creating a vision—and ultimately a plan—to build a career you're proud of. I'm halfway through the book and underlining a lot of passages. We also discuss how Bridgette is assisting artists in realtime in her Art MBA FB group and her experience working as an art coach. (Spoiler, I talk about how she helped me!) This episode is loaded with great info for helping artists at any level in their career.
