“Why are you asking permission? Just do it.

 

Take-Aways: 

Keep in mind that you have no idea what career opportunities will be presented to you. Sometimes, it takes awhile to peel those layers back to find where you are meant to be.

Collaboration trumps competition. You will always be you and will have a unique take that reveals itself in the creative process.

Celebrate the milestones. Take time to pause, and enjoy where you are right now.

Don’t worry yourself by asking, “Why am I not there?”. There’s a good chance that you already are.

When your business is going through a slow time, know that it’s normal and be comfortable with that. The extra time you are given is worth it.

Building a team is essential in order to create a balance in your life. You will know when it the time is right to begin that process, and you will naturally attract the right candidates.

Listen to your body when you are making changes in your business and dealing with clients. Your intuition will let you know if it is what you need to do and to whom you should offer your services.

Be careful seeking opinions on your product. If you feel it is necessary, do thorough market research. Avoid throwing something up in a social media forum and ask for input.

Build confidence through experience and forming your own systems and processes. If you don’t, people will know when you are not sure of yourself, which usually has less productive results for everyone involved.

“We don’t stop enough to say “Wow” about ourselves...I think that’s so sad."
