520 A friendly, funny, practical guide for creatives and
entrepreneurs, written by a four-time Emmy award-winning
and two-time Grammy-nominated composer-guitarist-producer
who has worked with Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, Jerry
Garcia, Lana Del Rey, and Krishna Das, among many others.
Also a beloved and highly regarded Buddhist teacher, David
teaches readers how to integrate their creative process
with their spiritual practice and livelihood. "How do I
make a living doing what I love?" "Am I a sellout as an
artist if I want to be successful?" "How do I integrate my
spiritual principles with the art of running a business?
And actually, um, how do I run a business?" Wondering how
to reconcile your calling with your need to make a living
wage, or what to do once your art starts selling, or how
to achieve success in your field, or what it even means to
be successful? David Nichtern offers his lived, learned
experience as an entrepreneur, musician, and Buddhist
teacher to first help you figure out what "success" means
to you and then show you how to get there. He offers
advice on the creative process and principles of business
and ethics--everything from "listen to the muse!" to
"protect your intellectual property!"--and provides
mindfulness exercises to help you integrate inspiration
and aspiration, vocation and avocation--to go from
surviving to thriving. Whether you're a baker trying to
grow from the farmer's market to a brick-and-mortar or a
CEO exploring how taking care of your employees can be the
same as taking care of your business--if you're trying to
align your spiritual, creative, and financial pursuits and
discover what it means to truly live well, this book is
