Tara Swiger is one of my heroes, so it was really fun to be featured on her podcast. We talked about keeping the faith with your art, how artists learn about business and how I decided to open my own Backporch Gallery. I didn’t even know I knew some of those things!
Tara is a maker, an author and a workshop leader who helps other makers and artists find our best business by following our enthusiasm and experimenting with what works for us and our people and the world we’re creating. She’s honest and enthusiastic and knowledgeable and kind, and when you hear the interview you’ll know why it was such a pleasure to talk to her. I’m one of Tara’s Captains in the Starship, her membership community of entrepreneurial-minded creative people, which you can find out more about on her website. Working with Tara is one of the highlights of my week.
