Media 2020: Rise of the Renaissance Creator

Media 2020: Rise of the Renaissance Creator

“The hybridization of the individual as both a creator and an entrepreneur. This development and definition of ‘creativity’ is one of the more interesting things happening today because it is contrary to the supposed logic for a creator to go independent. We like to say independence (see: passion economy) is valuable because it lets a creator focus on what they do best; create. But actually it’s the opposite. By going independent, the creator is aspiring to not only create, but willingly assume the management and business of their entire self.”

“If independent writers are like independent artists, newsletters are an entry into the media business like mixtapes are an entry into the music business. That’s because newsletters offer a medium of creation that has no barrier to entry and no production costs other than the willingness for the person to enter the ring and write. The business, the audience, the words, the design, the distribution…EVERYTHING is on the individual to learn, adapt and build on their own.”

Business Opportunity: I believe this is the greatest time ever to be alive. We are in the midst of a global pandemic and face other threats, but the opportunities are here. Your laptop and internet connection are a gateway to the world. Show up every day and hone your craft. The world needs your art.
