The Craftsman Creative Manifesto is everything I've learned about gaining the mindset of a professional creator, and I wrote it to help YOU on your creative journey.
The book describes a mindset and the principles behind being a Craftsman. It is wildly different from "hustling" or being entitled.
It embodies integrity, hard work, curiosity, systems, and faith.
A Craftsman takes pride in the work, letting the money come as they improve their craft and make progress on their work and their business.
A Craftsman also values autonomy, freedom, passion, stability, discipline, and humility.
This manifesto outlines and defines what a Craftsman creative is, why it's more important now than ever before to take on the values of a craftsman when it comes to your work, and how doing so can take your art, your passion, and turn it into a business that works, no matter what size or what stage you are in the process.
It's a collection of principles I wish that someone had taught me when I was starting out, as it would have saved me years of figuring it out on my own.
