  • The use of social media and website development as marketing and publicity tools and what does and doesn't work
  • The confusion between the "art-buying public" and the "general public" and their differences
  • New suggestions for establishing and calculating prices for artwork
  • Neighborhood gentrification and the growing challenges of securing a reasonably priced live/work space
  • How dealers find artists, how to negotiate with dealers, and how to understand a dealer's agenda

Using her own experiences as an artist as well as the experiences of her clients, Michels crafts a must-read guidebook for anyone interested in embarking upon a successful career as an artist.
