TEM130: Dr. Jeff Nytch on art and entrepreneurship co-existing, your single most important asset as an artist and his brand new book, The Entrepreneurial Muse
Dr. Jeff Nytch is the Director of the Entrepreneurship Center for Music at the University of Colorado Boulder and the author of the brand new book, The Entrepreneurial Muse: Inspiring Your Career in Classical Music.
What You'll Learn:
- How Jeff had a curiosity about entrepreneurship from a very early age (including opening a “bank” to loan money to his siblings!)
- Why no educational endeavor is every wasted and how sometimes two seemingly disparate interests can intersect later in life
- What he learned from his six years as the Executive Director of the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble
- How he was drawn to higher ed when he developed a burning desire to teach college students everything he learned only through experience after leaving school
- About Jeff’s brand new book, The Entrepreneurial Muse: Inspiring Your Career in Classical Music
- How he addresses people who claim that entrepreneurship and true art can’t coexist by giving examples of successful artists who are doing both
- Why your unique artistic voice is your single most valuable asset as an artist
- Why the question “what else are you passionate about” is so important to being a successful entrepreneur
- How Jeff coming to a major arts organization with a complete solution in hand to a problem led to a wonderful collaboration (and getting paid!)
