Let's Sell that Art Work - some Resources

For the readers in our group who want to stay on top of earning a living in this business, some books to check out.

  1. Amanda Palmer - The Art of Asking. Look specifically at how she engaged fans, promotes their problems, and create a culture of constantly asking for and receiving help. 

  2. Matt Lieberman - Social: Why Our Brains are Wired to Connect. A mind-blowing book that covers the science behind social. If you ever want to talk intelligently about how the social parts of the human brain works, read this book. 

  3. Olivia Fox-Cabane - The Charisma Myth. If you're not as influential, popular, or success at managing communities or gaining internal buy-in as you think you should be, it's probably not what you're saying - it's how you're saying it. This book has some good tips for being better in person (and online).

Also regarding the Amanda Palmer book, Brené Brown provided the forward, and I'm a huge fan of her work. She has TED talks as well. They're fantastic. WOOHOO!
