“This book is a GAME-CHANGER! I followed the 10-Step system that Will outlines and I leveled up in under a year. His method taught me how to think like a business, find my audience, create community and most importantly build equity. I’ve done things for my community, through creative entrepreneurship, that I never thought I could – and it is all thanks to this book right here. Will has given us a gem” – Dr. Sheena Howard, Author, Eisner Award-winner, Professor at Rider University.

“I never realized how much I needed this book. But you don’t know what you don’t know until you know. As an artist, it is crucial that my messaging be clear, consistent and engaging, however I was grossly missing the mark. I didn’t have a clear artist statement, I wasn’t consistent in my messaging and I was confused about how to properly market myself.

Thankfully, the ‘ (UN)COMMON Sense’ broke everything down step by step in ways that helped me to see myself in a new light. It helped me to understand what I offer as an artist and exactly how to go about maximizing my potential. Now, I understand how to build content, equity, and teams in ways that align with my goals.” – Kristal “Tyte” Oliver, Grammy-nominated Songwriter.
