Well those days are over. Unless you get smart - and creative - with your money and become your own patron, in which case the time has never been better.How To Feed A Starving Artist is a book about money for creative people, people who don’t want to talk about money, feel like they need to take a long, hot, shower when they do, but who need to get a handle on their finances so they can continue to do what they love with greater freedom.Written by David duChemin, a photographer, adventurer, and former comedian, who went from struggling artist to reluctant bankruptee before getting his finances in order, this is a book about simple financial possibilities available to artists and other creatives. Like A Beautiful Anarchy, the book before this one, this is an honest book about freedom. It promises no get-rich-quick solutions, just sound wisdom and actionable ideas to help you change the way you think and act in relationship to your money. It’s a starting place for people who want the freedom, not to be rich, but to live their dreams and fill their days with the art and adventure they long for.Money’s not the point, not even remotely. But money makes things possible. If you want to get a better handle on your finances, stop stressing out about making ends meet, and want to get closer to living the dream by doing what you love, How To Feed A Starving Artist is a great place to start that journey.
