Jose Trujillo was born in Mexico and brought to the US at the age of 9. He became interested in painting around the age of 9. Other than art class, Jose was not good in other subjects at school so he decided to teach himself to paint. He has successfully created a thriving business by selling and auctioning his art throughout the country. Jose has successfully bridged the gap between being a creative artist following his passion and creating a successful business by following the money. Jose discussed the exact steps he took to create a business model out of being an artist and how one can do it for themselves. We also spoke about the myths of being an artist any why we believe more artists should take control of their income by using their talent.
