Of all the things that we as creatives might battle against in our attempts to earn a decent living from our art is the mediocre and somewhat uninspired business advisors and consultants. Some of us are lucky and we can get what we need from them to take our artistic endeavours onto a more sustainable and profitable level. Whilst others of us struggle with narrow-minded attitudes and frustratingly poor and somewhat patronising guidance. Regardless of whether it is the bank manager, accountant or business advisor subjecting us to their stereotypical views, we slowly sink into apathy and depression wondering whether we will ever be able to make a living from being creative. And if ever we hoped to make our millions with our art – then we are destined to be sorely disappointed.
