About Cory Huff:
Cory is an actor and storyteller who fell into a career in Internet marketing. In 2004, he discovered search engine marketing and social media. Since then, he has worked on marketing and software programs for some of the world’s biggest companies.
In 2009, he started TheAbundantArtist.com (TAA) as a way of teaching Internet marketing to his artist friends who were asking him for help. Since then, he’s helped dozens of artists go from never-sold-anything to selling pieces monthly or weekly. Some of his artist friends and clients have gone on to sell their work for $20,000 or more. He teaches artists to be empowered to take charge of their own art business, and to not let others dictate to them whether their work is good enough, is commercial enough, or fits some predetermined mold of what an art career should be.
In 2014, Cory packed up and moved to France for 9 months and was still able to grow his online business and advance his epic goal of helping 1,000 artists create a full-time income so they can use their talents to change the world. While overseas, he was offered a book deal.
Cory is now back stateside and lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife Lissie and their two perfect kitties.
