Hello, my creative friend!


I know that you are fantastic at what you do.

I know that there is a potential audience of people who would be utterly devoted to you – and would love either to hire you, or buy your art.

I also KNOW that there are people in the world – influencers, well-connected types, or those who are in a position to give you a leg up – who can help you reach these future raving fans.

So, how do you get this last bunch of people to want to help you?

The answer: networking. But Yes Yes Marsha-style networking – that’s actually FUN.


Here’s what I want you to do


1. Write a list of five people you know could help you. Do it right now!

Make them a range of those who are small-deal and potentially easy to contact, and those who are dream-associate big (I’m talking level of Ai Weiwei, Jeff Koons or Oprah).

2. Rank them from easiest to contact to most famous.

3. Pick the easiest – and write them an email.

To find their email address, you can use the (awesome) free app, Rapportive For Gmail.

Here’s what to bear in mind:

  • Send them a link to somewhere that shows what you do (a website, a blog, your LinkedIn) 

4. When you’ve done it, BE ACCOUNTABLE! Tell someone you sent the email.


5. Block out one hour a month in your calendar, to send another, similar email to someone on the list. Or a second one to this person. It’ll probably take you less long than that, but thoughtful emails can take time!

6. Give yourself a massive high five. YOU ARE NETWORKING! And no one had to schmooze anyone, and no business cards were palmed.
