194 - How to Make Work that Spreads (Side Quest Series Pt 3)

It's hard to get into art when it's being shoved down your throat.

So, how do you get your work in front of new fans, customers or clients without directly smashing it into people's faces? 

You engineer organic growth. You make work that people want to voluntarily share. In this episode I share everything I've learned about doing just that.
