selling your art - is an art

When I started out as a freelancer, I pieced together what I knew about the industry and learned along the way. I made so many mistakes, but there was value learned in each misstep. And now, I love nothing more than sharing what I have learned and what worked for me with other designers in the industry.

You can be a successful print designer and you do not have to starve for your art. But...it will take something from you. It will take you doing things that may push you from your comfort zone. But, it is in that discomfort that you find growth. And it is in that growth that you can build the life and career that you dream of!

If you are like so many other designers out there, you likely ask yourself often...how can I get more clients? How do I make consistent income? How many revenue streams do I need? How do I set up my files? Do I need an agent?
