Notes from Today’s Episode:
- Don’t get satisfied or stagnated at any level you find yourself in career
- Don’t hold on to old ways and habits that limit or stunt your growth
- Patience is a Skill; creativity takes time
- Patience works with critical thinking, this should not be misconstrued for slow pace of delivery
- Be strategic about rejections, see it as a curve in the learning process and it also contributes to your portfolio
- Contributing to the growth of Communities will make the industry thrive
The Myth that we cannot be united in the creative industry is wrong. Currently with IBD Community I am working to demystify this myth. The goal is to make it possible for anyone to learn and get to any height in the industry. It is possible to get into the industry, learn and with time become a professional.
