Legendary rock climber Tommy Caldwell’s life story hasn’t been the standard tale. In his early 20s, Caldwell was held hostage by militants in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan. Soon after, he lost his left index finger in an accident. Later his wife, and main climbing partner, left him.

As an artist, working by referral provides social opportunities that can be fun and enjoyable. With zero or low advertising budget, it can also be highly profitable. A business based on referrals will allow you more time to work on your art. It also creates a work-life balance that is flexible and adaptable for inevitably changing circumstances. Our parents told us not to talk to strangers, but it's great business advice!
