I’m Sean Low, and I’ve been lending practical business advice to those in the business of being creative since the early 2000s, including accomplished notables such as Preston Bailey, Vicente Wolf, Nate Berkus, Sawyer Berson, Style Me Pretty, Marcy Blum, Michelle Rago, and Sylvia Weinstock--to name a few.

The key to my own success has been my ability to help artists build their businesses in a way that most honors the art that is behind them. I’ll give you straight up, no holds barred advice on handling what happens from deal to done. The journey with your client begins when they first connect with you, whether digitally or in real life. And from that moment until the project is finished, you have the power to manifest an experience and journey with them that’s transformative for all.

Everyone should be creative. Whatever your art is, it should invigorate you and bring you joy. And if it happens to be your business, it should bring you the money you need to KEEP being creative. Hopefully, I will challenge you each week to do just that.

So, let’s not just think outside the box… Let’s erase it!

    Imagining The Future

    Imagining The Future

    Creative business is literally about creating a world that has never existed. To imagine. Too often though we get trapped into the curse of knowledge, and lose the humility to know that you do not know. History has shown that failure to imagine the future is the curse of intelligence and the demise of the well intended. For creative business, it is the road to commodification and irrelevance. So let's talk about how to avoid tunnel vision. Listen in...

    Race To The Top

    Race To The Top

    By all accounts 2021 will be a rebirth for creative business. We will hopefully put the pandemic behind us and art will reemerge. The question will be how to handle it. My advice, race to the top. To do so you will have to be radically, unapologetically, idiosyncratic. You will need to convince yourself that best is indeed a verb, not a noun because when you do you will invest in the best of you, you art and your creative business. And from there you will justly reap the rewards of being on the top. Listen in...

    All Things Pricing

    All Things Pricing

    Pricing is a fraught subject no matter the time. Through in a global pandemic and cultural upheaval in the United States and the rubber band stretches ever thinner. As with all things foundation is everything. What "it" costs is not the same thing as what you cost. Oh and cost is for toothpaste, investment is for art. Let's talk Mercedes and leather seats and speaking of leather seats, let's talk Bentley.

    Faith And The Courage Of Conviction

    Faith And The Courage Of Conviction

    Faith is the courage of conviction.  Faith is the prerequisite to courage and integrity. Faith is facile and simultaneously hopeful and hopeless.  Faith is what you need to see your creative business through.  Enter the story of the swimming dog, Craigslist and letting kids have cake for breakfast.

    A Gentle Goodbye

    A Gentle Goodbye

    So the time has come for me to say goodbye to the podcast.  I feel like the thoughts are complete and I am compelled to focus on writing.  A few thoughts on what it means for me to have shared as I have for the past 140 episodes.

Amazing

Wish I had found Sean’s insight sooner!

Tony Fisher! ,

Sean rocks!

I follow Sean and everything he does via my wife and partner, Andrea Eppolito. She has been a member of Sean’s private group, the Business of Being Creative (commonly referred to as the “BBC”). It has changed her business, and her outlook on business. Sean forces you to see things from a different perspective. That doesn’t mean that you have to agree with him. He forces you to THINK and evaluate your position and arguments and whether or not they are the correct ones for you. I love that Sean is finally doing a Podcast - this is simply a taste of what you can get in the BBC. If you want to be pushed outside your comfort zone, grow and develop your business senses - then listen to Sean and subscribe!

The Greatest! You Must Listen to Sean Low

I have been working with Sean Low for years, and he is the best! Sean has one of the keenest minds that I have ever encountered, and his passion for the business side of things is inspiring. I am a much more confident business owner today because of the work we have done together, and I highly recommend him and his podcast.
