Social Media, Marketing, and Commissions Recap

This past year has been interesting because I ventured into helping other individuals and businesses grow their own work.  Helping someone else build their business from nothing is rewarding and daunting at the same time.  Offering my design knowledge and skills, I saw one of my friends build their online business from nothing to their financial goal.  They are now living abroad and have become a mobile entrepreneur.  It's amazing what support, creative input, and a few designs can do for someone else.  

Scheduling gets a little crazy but it's well worth it at the end.  The only way to get better at something is to continue creating, experimenting, and learning as you use your skills.  I really encourage other artists to explore with different media and challenge themselves.  When I look back at my earlier, I'm amazed at how much I grew.  The smallest encouragement can change someone's world and life.  So remember, to tell other creatives how much you appreciate their work.  Never stop doing what you love!
