Ep 82 Amanda "F'ing" Palmer - Lead With The Truth


Talk about choosing yourself, Amanda Palmer has always blazed a path that pushes the boundaries of what most of us would be comfortable with. Her latest project is a book called The Art of Asking, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help that explores the fear most of us experience. Why is it so hard to ask for something from those who are closest to you? Amanda tells James that it's those who are so close to us that are the ones who can hurt us where it really counts, down deep. Yet, you have to accept the fear and lead with the truth. Amanda and James also dig deep into the problem many of us have, how do you charge for your art, and how much is it really worth? People value things they purchase.   If you believe in your art, then don't be afraid to ask.
