This article is a must read for any entrepreneur, artistan, or content creator. It has influenced many successful people who have built livelihoods and fortunes on its principals since it was written and is widely referenced, so it is nice to get have read in the original.

The basic idea is that depending on your goals anywhere from a couple hundred to a few thousand true fans that buy and support your work should be enough for making a living.
