I ordered the Audible book for this book. I intend to also purchase the physical book. There are so many good nuggets I know I will want to revisit.
I feel like Maria is that older, wiser sister who is sharing all her best tips with us, hoping we will learn from her experiences. She is very concise and offers some great advice that is "outside the box." I think every artist, beginner or veteran, would benefit from the guidance in this book. Great resource!
I love this book for its authentic wisdom and great advice. Maria is great at breaking down development ideas so they aren’t intimidating and therefore very doable. She has great advice on changing your mindset to positive growth and success which I truly appreciate ❤️
I first bought this book in digital format and then bought a hard copy to make notes in. I've been a professional artist for almost 20 years and Maria's book is one of the best I've read on the business side of art. So many books and coaches say the same stuff over and over, write an artist statement, a bio, get a website, approach galleries, and hope for the best when you have time between your day job. Maria gives real-world strategies from experience that go outside of group think. Just one example is her daily-painting strategy to raise cash fast. I did it (with a few of my own embellishments) and raised almost $5,000 in a month. She has great advice on dealing with people in the industry and lots of ideas for making money.
I absolutely loved this book. After successfully working as a graphic designer for 20+ years, I'm starting a new career as a full-time artist. The problem is that I don’t know the first thing about making a living as an artist, and at 52 I'm way behind. I’ve read books and watched courses, but this was the first book that really spoke to me. It's practical and actionable. And, because Maria is a marketer rather than the artist whose work she promotes, her writing feels more objective and frank than most. She has a no-nonsense approach and go-get'em attitude, while extolling the virtues of kindness and love which are so frequently lacking in business. I also love that she draws not only from her own experience in selling her husband's work, but from many other artists she's interacted with. So it feels like she's distilling real-life wisdom from a broad community.
In fact, I liked her book so much that I'm hiring her as my coach. Obviously, everyone responds to different kinds of teaching, but if you're looking for actionable advice from someone who cuts right to the chase, start with this book.
Maria Brophy’s book is just what I needed to help me move my art career forward. Wise advice, clear examples and great interactive tools to get you thinking and planning. So glad a friend recommended this book to me. Tracy
This book was a phenomenal guide and a much needed resource for me. Maria is incredibly knowledgeable and has so many situational examples that I have already begun to apply to my art business. It is truly an invaluable resource and I know I will frequently come back to it for advice!
I’ve followed Maria since I heard her interview on the Savvy Painter podcast and she is a very charismatic person. I listened to a few of her podcasts and thought I’d give her book a try. Maria is inspiring and she has some good advice but it’s not really anything you can’t get from her free podcast already. It’s unfortunate she has turned a lot of people off who know she and her husband refused to get vaccinated and he almost died from Covid. To deny a raging pandemic could possibly kill her artist husband was not very good business advice and now they’re out begging for charity for his medical bills. It’s too bad they can’t just be honest about vaccines and admit they made a foolish mistake. This book (I listened to the audible version) is only unique because of the author who gives her own personal perspective and because she and her husband continue to whine about this “tragedy” that hit them out of nowhere when the rest of the world took it seriously is just too much for me.
I first met Maria on a surfboard off the coast of San Clemente about 15 yrs ago. Then sadly I met her husband. (They're always married aren't they!) But quickly I saw how great his art was and how nice they were and over the years have seen how instrumental she has been in working with him to market and make a success of his art like few artists have enjoyed. So now I'm curious about doing some art to start a side t-shirt business so I bought her book. I bought her book because I know her success and her husband's success are real and what she says will be honest and practical and will work and I look forward to reading it. I know this because I have seen it with my own eyes. Her podcasts are great too!
This has been THE most practical, easy to understand and encouraging art business book Ive read. I constantly revisit & refer back to this book for guidance. She encourages you to do the work and get validation as an artist for the work.
As an artist who was just starting out a few years ago in creating my business, I really wish I had this book when I didn’t know how to negotiate, price my work, how to say no to certain commissions, and simply just value my work more. I couldn’t be more grateful for this book because it truly helped to understand what is available for an artist and how to go after it. It also taught me how the art works really works and where I fit into the puzzle. Thank you!

These crochet kits from Woobles are a mixed bag, with some customers finding them easy to follow and great for beginners, while others struggle with the instructions and quality of materials. The video instructions are praised by many, but some feel they lack the hand-holding necessary for true beginners. The kits come with all the necessary materials and the yarn quality is generally good. However, there are complaints about knots in the yarn and issues with customer support.
