Arts in the News (SBJ Live): Conquering the Cliche of Starving Artist with Christie Snelson

"[Christie Snelson] also shares how payment plans keep money coming in while giving her goals to work toward, keeping her on track financially and deadline-wise. Her thoughts on the term "starving artist"--hopefully if you work hard you won't starve, but day jobs are strongly encouraged. Her advice to those wishing to step out on their own is to work hard, continue to learn, push yourself, and stay focused." — SBJ Live
