In this great video, he sits down with Chase Jarvis to discuss three tips for building a successful brand that both enables you to generate income and stay true to your core creative impulses. So many bits of advice on this topic tend to center around externally focused ideas of business and the like, and while those are of course important, I found it refreshing to see a take on this that also addressed the importance of being true to yourself.
