Product description

Product Description

'The Artist's Way' meets 'The War of Art' for a new generation!

ATTN: Musicians, Writers, Visual Artists, and Anyone Who Wants to Make a Difference or Build a Career in the Arts ...

Could you use a kick in the pants to jump-start your creative calling? Or do you know someone who is gifted at their craft but too fearful or hesitant to pursue it?

"The Empowered Artist" is a call to action and a rallying cry for you to step into your greatness.

What you'll get in this book is a big dose of reality checks, empowering attitudes, shifting perspectives, powerful mindsets, and nitty-gritty details on the real work you need to do to make a difference (and make a living) with your talents and know-how.

The reason so many struggle with creative ambitions is because they lack these rock-bottom principles. To truly thrive in the arts you must install these big picture ideals into your creative DNA.

That's what this book is: a transfusion of success principles for modern day artists.

Every section ends with a Call to Action - an affirmative step you can take to tell yourself (and the world) that you mean business, that you are here to make your creative mark.

The world needs you and the gifts that only you are uniquely qualified to deliver. We need you to live up to your potential, to shine your light, to step into your greatness.

That's why I wrote this book.

I'm tired of creative people being treated like second-class citizens (by themselves and others), when the truth is ... We are the ones who create the culture, innovation, and new ideas that humanity needs now more than ever.

Here's a list of the topics you'll find in "The Empowered Artist":

- The Foundation: Ten Guiding Principles You Should Internalize to Become an Empowered Artist

- The Launching Pad: Essential Elements for Kicking Your Art Activities Into Overdrive

- Creativity Career Killers: The Top Ten Misguided Notions That May Be Holding You Back

- Supercharged Empowerment: Seven Secrets to Living a Fulfilling Life in the Arts

- Turning Pro: The Essential Skills You Must Develop to a Become Self-Actualized Creative Entrepreneur

To clarify, my motivation in writing this book isn't just to make a few musicians, writers, and painters feel good about themselves. That's thinking too small. My vision is to change the world!

Are you with me?

5.0 out of 5 stars it is a channeled passion that doesn't take off in rants and raves but rather presents you with beautiful stories and analysis o 14 August 2015

The Empowered Artist embodies the essence of its author, Bob Baker. This is one of those works written with passion; however, it is a channeled passion that doesn't take off in rants and raves but rather presents you with beautiful stories and analysis of what it means to be a creative person. Each and every section ends with a call to action, very practical and sensitive to the personality type of creatives. The sections are short and easy to digest, and the suggested actions are, by and large, doable in the moment that you read them. It would be impossible to try and implement all of the content, though, immediately after reading, and it really isn't a checklist of "Do Step 1, Step 2, Step 3 = You're there." Rather, I feel that Baker works to adjust the mindset before giving action suggestions, and then, you can use the sections that are applicable to you. While I strongly recommend reading through the book, I know that I will be using it as a reference as I continue to evolve in my creative life and business.
If you are looking for some solid "how-to's" about making your creativity your daily life, then this is the book for you. That is exactly what I want, and I found a wealth of help in The Empowered Artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from Bob Baker 10 May 2015

I just finished reading Bob's latest book and found it to be a very engaging read. Bob keeps the reading pace quick and to the point. If you are starting an artistic career or have been doing it for a while and feel burned out or uninspired, I highly recommend this book to read. There are lots of insights and ideas to get you moving on your projects. The title says it all....Empowered Artist...a call to action for Musicians, Writers, Visual Artists, and ANYONE WHO WANTS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH THEIR CREATIVITY

As a song writer, recording artist, and writer, I have found there is so much more to learn about marketing and promoting your art, writing, and creative works. I was referred to Bob Baker and his helpful books through a fellow artist, who is successful at marketing his works with the help of Bob Baker. Thank you Bob for sharing your knowledge and encouraging artists to continue to fill our world with more art, music, writings,...I will definitely read more of your books. Best wishes, Denise Young, composer/pianist/writer

Excellent Book. Bob has been instrumental (ah, an unintended pun) in leading artists to empower themselves and use their gifts for themselves but more importantly the enjoyment of the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars An encouraging and invaluable resource for artists. 6 October 2015
By Ladybug - Published on
The Empowered Artist reminded me somewhat of Elizabeth Gilbert's book, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. Both books encourage artists to see and accept themselves as the "legitimate" creators they already are. But Baker's book goes beyond the feel-good stuff and asks artists to take it to the next level, to get serious about their art. To this end, his book is LOADED with concrete steps to help turn your artistic side hobby into a self-sustaining (dare I say?) business.

I really love how Baker emphasizes hard work and perseverance. Find your artistic voice, he says, through experimentation and "prolific output." Create consistently and repeatedly. Schedule your time to write, draw, paint, whatever, and treat it like the important work it is. Figure out your goals, find your fans, connect with your role models, and, above all, produce! I loved this quote from Chuck Close: "Inspiration is for amateurs--the rest of us just show up and get to work."

Surprisingly, this book ended up being a source of encouragement for me, yes, but also a very practical guide for how to grow my craft, my brand, my business. There were many really good marketing tips that I had never thought of before, and Baker's advice has helped me see my future in a different way. I'm feeling encouraged and optimistic, and I'm definitely looking forward to checking out more of Baker's marketing tips.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
