Marshall Goldsmith Shows How Your Ideas Thrive in a Marketplace
“The marketplace is more important than having a great idea, product, and talent. Without the market, you may not be able to earn the life you feel you deserve.”

Nashville, TN (Newsworthy.ai) Tuesday Jul 5, 2022 @ 9:00 AM Pacific —

In a blog post related to the marketplace for ideas, adapted from his new book The Earned Life, the renowned leadership coach and bestselling author Marshall Goldsmith explores the importance of understanding the market for your work.

Goldsmith writes: “The marketplace is more important than simply having a great idea, a great product and great talent. Without a knowledge of what the market is for your talents, services or business, you may not be able to earn the living you want, or the life you feel you deserve.” When the market changes, so too does the marketplace. Artists need a marketplace to thrive, as do businesses.

The war in Ukraine has affected the market for many Ukrainian artists and businesspeople. One gallery owner has moved into NFTs — non fungible tokens — to help support Ukrainian artists.

The gallery owner Lika Spivakovska has been championing emerging Ukrainian artists since she opened her gallery Spivakovska Art:Ego, in 2014. She closed her physical gallery after the Russian invasion. Now, to help artists throughout the war, she is working with the Lighthouse, an NFT art gallery in Puerto Rico, to digitize photos of the art from Ukrainian artists she represented. She responded to the emerging NFT marketplace to help artists whose livelihoods were threatened by the Russian invasion. One NFT raised more than $30,000.

Without a marketplace, ideas can wither.

In The Earned Life Goldsmith uncovers the source of today’s existential crises, including regrets that stem from choices that irrevocably alter our lives, reroute destinies, and haunt our memories. These are particularly timely themes today.

With Goldsmith’s book as a guide, readers can close the gap between what they plan to achieve and what they actually get done—even in a world full of inescapable unfairness and curveballs—and live an earned life that is fulfilling in the long run.
