Art for Money is a small and mighty volume that covers the essentials every creative freelancer needs to know about making a living and growing their business—in under 100 pages.
You might be a photographer, engineer, writer, designer, makeup artist, or any kind of freelance worker, contractor, or consultant. Or maybe you have a company job but dream of working for yourself. Chances are you’re interested in creating and a little unsure about billing, proposals, calendar management, how to set up an LLC—and if you can do it all yourself. Have you ever wished creatives like you had a coach, companion, or career center to turn to? The ten short chapters of this book are for you.
Michael Ardelean packs 13 years of creative and business experience into this short book, distilling everything he’s learned about thriving financially as an artist. Art for Money will teach you:
Art for Money is approachable, actionable, and written for creatives by a creative who’s seen it all. You’ve already figured out how to be great at what you do. If you’re ready to become financially successful, too, the time you spend with this small book might be the best investment you’ve ever made in yourself.
“I reached out to Mike for help… Then he sent over the book you’re about to read. After that, my income tripled.” —Angela Fink, an early reader
At Holloway, we imagine a place on the web where depth, quality, and high-value writing are the norm. A place where experts’ ideas are accessible to anyone. Where thoughtful, inclusive, and well-written resources win over quick takes, self-promoting blog posts, and content marketing.
We believe you, the reader, know the difference. It’s the 2020s. You recognize sites riddled with ads and clickbait headlines. Deep and comprehensive resources take expertise, time, and money to build. By buying access to this title, you’re supporting a place online that makes longform reading a pleasure—and allowing us to pay authors, contributors, engineers, and editors who build and improve them. Holloway is a new and powerful way to publish. We hope you’ll join us on the journey.
What exactly am I buying?
By purchasing a title on Holloway.com, you get full digital access to the book and all other resources that come with it, for unlimited use by you. That means you get lifetime access online for that title on the web, using the Holloway Reader. In contrast with Kindle and other ebooks, this also includes future updates from the author or editors. Finally, depending on the title, you get additional digital resources like PDF downloads, documents, spreadsheets, or audio clips! If you purchase a bundle, you get all additional resources for each title in the bundle.
What is the Holloway Reader?
The Holloway Reader lets you read and engage with books bought on Holloway. Many of our readers call it the best reading experience for books on the web—you use it right in your browser, on desktop or mobile. In contrast to ebooks and paper books, online content in the Holloway Reader is always up to date, including updates when changes to the content are made, like responses to reader questions, new data, or new developments. It also lets us experiment with what the future of the book should look like, offering features you won’t find in Kindle or Apple Books.* It includes expert commentary in the margins and offers bookmarks and highlights, instant definitions of technical terms from a glossary, instant previews of links and footnotes, and a powerful search capability only available on Holloway titles—and we have a lot more on the way.
Are there any discounts?
We do offer discounts if you select a bundle or more than one title during checkout. We also offer student discounts to individuals with a valid .edu email address.* Before a book is released, it is available for pre-order at a discount. By pre-ordering a title, you’re supporting us and our authors in their work and you may get a note from the author, early access, or other perks.
Finally, if you sign up on our email list, in addition to excerpts and updates about our titles you’ll get any occasional special offers (infrequently—we don’t want to spam folks!).
Can I buy Holloway titles as a gift?
Yes! You can purchase and instantly share lifetime digital access for any title in the catalog. You can do this for a friend or a small group by selecting the number of invites you want to purchase during checkout. You’ll also get a receipt, so you may easily expense it if it’s a business purchase.
Can I buy Holloway titles for my team or my company?
Yes! It’s just like a gift for a few people, as above. For example, if you purchase 5 invites, you can forward the invite link or invitation email to the 5 people on your team.
We also offer additional options for team access for companies, groups, and classes. Use the team access form (just 3 questions) to set this up and get full pricing information or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
