Tracy Shaffer's curator insight, November 22, 2013 12:43 PM

I would replace the word "artists" with the term "creatives" when it comes to the discussion. As a writer and theatre artist who is also a Realtor, I have found many ways to balance my business and artistic persuits. In fact, having a creative mind with the business structure that I must self-impose as a self-employed agent, has made me much better at both. I wish I knew this when I was a young actress living and working in Hollywood with a ton of opportunities.  As much as I hate to think of art as a commodity, we seem to have created a collective conflict between 'high art' and "Show BUSINESS". Yes, there is a ton of market-driven work in the entertainment industry and the visual arts have always been commodified to a large extent, but the underlying issue is in perpetuating the myth of suffering for one's art rather than prioritizing one's time. We must break the archtype of the starving artist and begin to take ownership in the value of our creativity. The Creative Class is responsible for all forward movement in mankind-- we are the curious, the inventive, the problem-solvers and can-doers of the world and we need to respect that individually and collectively. 

Real estate is a prime example. An artist, looking for creative space, rents a rat building from a slum lord, progresses the neighborhood (because where artists go, hipsters follow) and then is priced out. I work with my clients to find ways to build equity in the real estate they live and work in so that we are not the perpetual renters, creating wealth for other.
