Why Are Artists Poor?

It is becoming increasingly clear that artists need to develop business skills in order to survive. However, one could argue that if the job of the artist is no longer making the art but the promotion of it then practice will suffer and the quality of work will decline. I think it is all about finding a balance by dividing your time between the studio and the office to ensure that both sides of your practice are developed.

The main problem I see is how do artists with no business experience develop the skills they need to promote their work and protect their interests?
