vividConfusion ,

Exactly I need!!!

Thank you so much for putting your wealth of knowledge and experience together in this podcast series. You present the topics in a way that are easily digested and are precisely relevant to my situation. This is exactly what I need at exactly the right time. I’m ever-so grateful. I highly recommend this series to solo practitioners like myself struggling with the aspects of making a living through art which isn’t about making the art but getting it out there and beyond. Thanks Neville (and presumably team) 😅😄
