Sue Monhait ,

Rockstar value from one who knows

Sonya is bringing podcast gold to the artist community. She's an experienced and recognized leader in the industry and knows because she's done it. I'm so impressed all around with Sonya's style and generosity to share all she knows.

Great even if you aren’t an artist

Although I am not an artist, I really enjoy this podcast. The advice given is useful in many other industries as well—the episode on instagram comes to mind. Keep up the great work!

Need to drive your creative business forward? This show's for you.

Remember Cher’s “Snap out of it!” moment in “Moonstruck?” Listening to Sonya Paz coach you to be the best creative you is kind of like that (minus the slaps across the face!). Check out Paz’s website before you listen to this podcast and you’ll see that this prolific artist must practice the biz strategies that she preaches. Her happy and vibrant artwork (Keith Haring meets Frida Kahlo cool) appears on everything from canvases to checkbook covers to hip flasks to jewelry—and way more. How can YOU become fearless when it comes to marketing? This former gallery owner and onetime car saleswoman with nearly 10K FBers following her art says you’ve got to drive your business forward daily. And, surprisingly, she wants to share her do’s and don’ts for success in this weekly head dump with YOU.
