You know, this is a HUGE job. Huge. Part of being good at it, I think, involves understanding just how huge it is, and having some respect for that fact. I have been guilty of attempting to set up as a broker without taking into consideration what an enormous time and energy commitment it is.

A lot of it is about temperament. You have a temperament which thrives on exploring a really wide range of things. Mine, on the other hand, likes to pick a very few things and go into them very deeply. It's key to understand your own temperament and not try to force yourself to be someone you're not.

Also, sometimes, less is more. I used to think I had to do something like start a gallery or publish a magazine in order to be supportive of underrecognized artists, for example. But now I've realized that it's more appropriate for me to put most of my energy into my own art, and just blog about other awesome artists when I come across them. I may very well be doing the other artists a bigger favor than if I tried to promote their careers in a big way, and failed because I'd bitten off more than I could chew.

Serena is spot on: "Know thyself" and thine own boundaries. Then you can be the Most Effective Badger possible.
