When established Hollywood actor Kate Zenna first met prominent businessman David Wolfe, she was instantly impressed by his passion for helping others reach his level of success in business. From this fortuitous meeting, the concept of ‘The Responsible Artist’ was created.
Artists are creative and Special Souls from birth. They didn’t choose Artistry – it chose them. Most artists knew from early age that they were different from their friends and classmates. Many have a love/hate relationship with money – they need it and want it, but also don’t want their creativity ‘tainted’ by it. In The Responsible Artist, authors Zenna and Wolfe in a point/counterpoint dialogue, give artists permission to earn significant income. They make a compelling case that artists have a duty to ‘stay in the game’ and the only way for that happen is for them to understand time, money, and marketing and the relationship of how all three of these concepts connect to each other.
The Responsible Artist is meant for Artists who:
• Feel like they will lose their creativity if they become ‘responsible’
• Feel that having a system and personal philosophy around time and money will jinx them
• Never received any lessons around money while growing up
• Think that money problems will just work themselves out
