Product description

To get where you want to go in this world, you know you need to get really good at what you do, and put yourself out there, and make connections. But how are you supposed to do all that while you're busy spending your time and energy practicing a craft, learning a trade, or running a business? This title teaches you how to think about your work as a never-ending process, how to build and maintain meaningful relationships by sharing that process, and how to deal with the ups and downs of putting yourself and your work out in the world - all summarized in ten simple principles.

Review quote

"["Show Your Work" is] timeless; readers can return to it repeatedly throughout life and still glean useful ideas and tips... Anyone starting out (or starting over)...will find upbeat encouragement here." "Library Journal" Some people are natural self-promoters. For others, it s painfully difficult to put their work out there. In this creatively designed pocket-sized book, Kleon offers the latter group effective strategies that allow them to share their work without leaving their comfort zone . Kleon s advice is sassy and spot-on. "Publishers Weekly" [The] subtitle could just as easily be, How to Self-promote Without Being a Jerkface. It s an incredibly useful and compulsively readable short book. "Fast Company" Kleon addresses with equal parts humility, honesty, and humor one of the quintessential questions of the creative life: How do you get discovered ? In some ways, the book is the mirror-image of Kleon s debut rather than encouraging you to steal from others it offers a blueprint to making your work influential enough to be theft-worthy. "Brain Pickings" A must-read for anyone involved in the creative process. "LibraryReads" Kleon s powerful advice makes this small-format book not-at-all little. "Booklist" In this motivating book, packed with smart approaches, ideas and quotes, Kleon teaches you how best to navigate through creative work in the present day. . . . A certain and deserved bestseller. "The Bookseller" It s not often that I find myself reviewing a book that I can say has already changed my life. . . . At a crucial turn in this fabulous little wallop of a book comes the simple directive, Share something small every day. That something oughtn t be your Instagrammed latte or a selfie, but something useful or interesting about your work. Put enough somethings out there, and a lone artist or entrepreneur can soon be a productive part of a creative community. "BookPage""
