- What are the main points of each article?
- What can artists learn from their “entrepreneurial cousins”?
- Do you agree that artists are entrepreneurs? why?
- Which of the 12 characteristics of artists do you agree with?
- What others would you add to the list?
- Additional thoughts.
- Both articles compare the similarities between artist and entrepreneurs. Article 1 tells how artist behave and what entrepreneurs can learn from artists. Article 2 compares the beginning stages of both an artist’s and entrepreneur’s careers.
- Artists can learn to create a much needed support system and use the resources available to them to begin their career.
- I agree that artists are entrepreneurs because artists are essentially starting a new business venture by having an independent art career.
- I agree with all of the 12 characteristics to some extent, but I most agree with the fourth characteristic. I agree with “artists are children” because of the creativity children have and most tend to lose as they age, but artists somehow keep it.
- I would want to add that artists see the world in a different way. An artist may look at certain things and see the components that make up that point of view, while a not-artist won’t do that.
- I agree with how article 2 said, “the lines between artists and entrepreneurs continue to blur — and with more artists becoming entrepreneurs.” In today’s age, entrepreneurs need to be more creative and artists need to be able to do business.
- Do you have grit, or is this something you need to work on?
- List a couple of things you could do to increase your level of grit.
- According to the survey, my grit score is 3.25, which is more than at least 40% of the population. In my own opinion, I do not think that I have much grit because I get distracted and will lose focus on a project, unless I am with other people then I may be one of the most focused people in the group. I definitely think grit is something that I could work on.
- To increase my level of grit, I could try to work on projects in small increments over a longer period of time. I could use a project I am highly motivated to do, and try to have a set time period to do it so that I do not continue to work for too many hours and get burnt out on the project.
