As a manager, one must understand art and people. Hard work is also required. In terms of artist success, hard work and understanding your craft are also necessary. Feldman also stresses being original in some way. Also in this segment, he points out that hoping for critical acclaim is a real mistake. Artists should simply do what feels right.
