I've come to think that the idea that the 'artist' lives in an ivory tower and is untroubled by the business of the world is a) a recent invention and b) silly. Making a living is as much a part of life as making poems or making jokes. If you don't learn about how to do business you'll a) not understand how most of the rest of the world operates and b) screw up.

I really feel cross about the fact that I managed to get through school and university without once being told how a business worked or even how to fill in a tax form. For a highly educated person I've made some pretty bad mistakes in my time in the administration of my life, not out of native stupidity but out of sheer ignorance.
