RED 230: Real Artists Don’t Starve

Real Artists Don't StarveGo to any major entertainment city like Nashville, New York, or Los Angeles, and you'll see two types of artists — those who are making a ton of money and those who are broke.

The same is true for entrepreneurs and “experts.”

What's the difference?

Skill? No. Looking at all the mediocre people out there who make good money, you should know that one…
