There is no magic formula or magic timer to let you know when your career should “break”. You might be an overnight star, have a steady career, or anything in between. Marketing guru Seth Godin (whom we often quote in this space) has again tapped into the artist’s bizbrain with a little post we need to carry around with us. Our take: If you’re lucky, bear it in mind and keep working. If you’re good, hang in there. If you’re not good yet, get on with it and do everything you can to get there. Thanks, Seth.
