Your Children Can’t Support You (Yet)

Many creatives and entrepreneurs make the mistake of trying to live off ideas still in their infancy. If you’ve been doing your work for three years and it’s not yet supporting you, remember, it’s still a toddler. You wouldn’t expect your toddler to support you, right? Instead, consider: what are you doing to support your art?

Your art is like your children… atomic seeds of you as ideas birthed into the world. For them to survive you have to feed them daily.

You Would Never Neglect Your Children

To parent your art into a sustainable business, you have to learn the business of bringing your art into the world, and you have to do something toward that each day. Parents, parent every day. Your ideas are like your children; you can’t just play with your “kids”… you also need to feed, discipline, educate, guide and nurture them into stable, healthy, productive and contributing adults. Daily. It’s the same for your work.

“To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart.”

For your children to thrive you must help them to become all that they can be. Likewise for your business. For every success story, there are years of effort supporting that; most through the daily discipline of creating, learning, and engaging in the art of business.

Your ideas—like your children—need a home to live in. That home is the business you build.

What Did You Learn Today?

As parents, we often ask our kids, especially when they are young and going off to school: “What did you learn today?

If you learned just one thing every day toward your goal and implemented just one thing per week, you would be miles ahead in the creating of a business around your art. And yes… “support systems” are also a part of creating. It is creating your business… creating the infrastructure for your art to survive and thrive.

Keep feeding your work and eventually it will feed you.

Birthing ideas is easier than raising them to significance.
But you must parent your offspring for them to thrive.
