As creatives, we know we need to share our work to grow and improve. Listening to the marketing gurus, we are told we need to make our *brand* stand out and grow our audiences to have a successful creative business. The logic is a big audience of raving fans will lead to lots of adoring customers. Along the way, putting ourselves 'out there' in the world of the interwebs, means we may attract comments from people who aren't raving fans. How, as artists, do we deal with the critics and the fans that come across our paths? In this episode, Jennifer and Michelle discuss this from a number of angles and the whole 'myth' / fairy-tale of how to deal with feedback.

Artists, inspirational people and resources mentioned in this podcast include: Love without End by Glenda Green and Nicholas Wilton.
