In the future, original articles will be posted on the MorenaMedia Web site and will be made available to those who subscribe to the mailing list.

THIS WEEK: Quit looking for an artist agent, learn how NOT to approach a gallery, working backwards to accomplish your goals, and more....

#1.  Defining "Success"
I had lunch at the Empire Diner in Chelsea recently with Stephanie Sachs, a New York-born artist now living in Hawaii....

#3.  Quit Looking for an Agent
At some point, almost every artist says to herself, "I wish I had an agent." How do I know? Because artists say it to me almost every day. My response? Quit dreaming! Come back to reality and quit wasting your time. Plant both feet firmly on the ground so you can get your head out of the clouds....

#6.  You’ve Got the Mind of An Entrepreneur Whether You Like It or Not
Entrepreneurs aren’t just business geeks. Being educated in business and starting a business, doesn’t make you any more an entrepreneur than the photographer selling his work.

#7.  10 Ways To Get Your Writing Out There
Some people think that getting published by a traditional book publisher is the only way to get your writing out to readers.... I would argue that writers don’t benefit from it, readers don’t benefit from it, and neither does our writing culture. This perception of the editor-gatekeepers just creates a tense and risk-averse climate. So, I’m going to detour around the bottleneck and focus on the diversity of methods writers can use to get their writing out there.

It’s known that a brand for a product is like reputation for a human being. There are so many articles, books and people that talk about branding and how it is done properly. A lot of bloggers out there, who are most probably new, just do not care about their Twitter page and how it looks. Considering that you have got a proper brand and theme for your blog (or product) now you need to have a Twitter branded page that matches your current brand....
