The dilemma of the artist and the entrepreneur

The entrepreneur and the artist face a similar dilemma: That of not wanting to let people down.

Living up to expectations can be an existential threat.

Holding onto staff when income dries up can kill a business as surely as lingering on in a style you’re known for can snuff out the creative fire.

The greatest crisis can be living up to expectations when evolutionary breakthrough is needed.

(Sometimes letting it all fall to pieces is the way forward.)
