5 Books for artists seeking stability

In general, I tend to be more action oriented than planning oriented, which explains the post I wrote yesterday. Instead of contemplating the change I’d like to see in my life or career, I often find myself identifying actionable steps to get results.

In order to create the steps necessary for change, it is incredibly important to gather information about how to take the next steps in my life.  It is through the information gathering process that the best ideas come forward. Below you will find some resources that I use on a regular basis as I help others find stability in their lives. All of the items are also listed on my resources page within this site.


Thanks so much and please let me know what resources you have used to find stability in your career in the comment section below.

He envisions a world where students majoring in the arts have a clear path to a sustainable career, where creative minds are empowered and inspired to rule the workforce, and where access to the arts is not just for the privileged few, but for all.

  1. Another great book is “Barking Up the Wrong Tree” by Eric Barker. Great articles, Nate.

  2. Of course, Andrew Simonet’s Making Your Life As An Artist, available as a free download from Andrew’s ArtistsU.org website is a pretty spectacular DIY contribution to stability for artists.
