Christa Wells is an award-winning songwriter and I was honored to talk to her about what it really means to be an artist, how to stick with it, even when you're broke, and how she's made her own luck instead of waiting to be noticed.

So much great stuff in this episode. I first heard about Christa because of he latest album which covers songs from Nirvana, The Smiths, Depeche Mode, Smashing Pumpkins and U2. All favorite bands from over the last 20 years of my life.

I’d been listening to the album on repeat when I decided to reach out to her and see if she’d be interested in coming on the show. I’m so glad she said yes. Like my conversation with Donald Miller, we talked about the art itself, but so much more than just that.

Christa is a deep thinker and I loved talking with her about art and artifice, business, the idea of the “tortured artist”, and many so much more.

Every artist in an entrepreneur and I loved getting Christa’s take on these topics.

As always, I had a great time talking to Christa. Enjoy the show!
