We had a great time speaking to Nashville-area artists on Monday! The Arts & Business Council set up the one-hour seminar at the Country Music Hall of Fame. We were delighted by the sheer numbers–the place was packed–and diversity of the audience. There were painters, songwriters, musicians, photographers, even a novelist. Thanks to everyone who attended, and thanks to the Arts & Business Council! We’d love to do it again!
