Take less than 60 seconds now and your future-self will be forever grateful to you. Determine if your art is a hobby or if it is a business.
Hobby: an activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for one’s pleasure.
If you really want is to sell your art but you are approaching it as a hobby and not a business then you will feel forever conflicted and disappointed.
If you answer “yes” to any of the questions listed below, then your art is a hobby.
- “I give my art away to friends and family.
- “I don’t really care if my art sells.”
- “I enter art contests.”
- “Art and money don’t mix.”
- “I donate my art.”
- The truth will set your free.
- There is no shame in having a hobby.
- You are not going to have a successful art career because there are no jobs for artists. But you could have a successful art hobby or art business.
“Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.” – Andy Warhol
