Most of us have experienced ‘the gasp’—that moment of inspiration when an idea takes shape. The hard part is turning that vision into a successful business. And entrepreneurship can be particularly challenging for artists and creatives who don’t have an interest in the business or legal aspects of launching a startup.
Michael Prywes is a New York attorney on a mission to serve artists and creative entrepreneurs. His podcast, How I Broke Into, explores how successful artists and businesspeople got their big breaks. Guests have included The Miracle Morning author Hal Elrod and Emmy-winner Reed Morano, among many others. Michael teaches Intellectual Property and Cutting the Deal to MFA candidates at Long Island University, and he is the bestselling author of The Gasp: How to Seize That ‘A-Ha!’ Moment and Turn It into a Winning Business.
