We climb and then we lift

 Me during the Art of Collaboration Business Masterclass

Me during the Art of Collaboration Business Masterclass

Last week I was invited by The Freelancer Club and by Shooting Beauty to be a panelist during their Business Masterclass entitled “The Art of Collaboration.” Like I told the audience that night when I received the invitation I really didn’t know what to say that could be so interesting for them to want to come and listen to. After all, I just started doing this myself a few months ago. But my husband reminded me that in only 6 months I went from not having a portfolio at all to being published in several magazines and having the opportunity to work with such amazing creatives in the many shoots that we planned (spoiler alert! I will tell you all about this in future posts so keep an eye on my blog!). So, that’s what I did. I stood there, in front of all those people and spoke about my journey as a starting creative. And the connection I felt with the audience was unbelievable! It felt so good to help and inspire others with my story. I feel so humbled and flattered by all the positive feedback I have been getting ever since. Being a starting creative can get very lonely and at times even make you feel lost. But when you hear of others who are going through the same things that you are you can’t help but feel related and regain hope. We are all in this together so why not empower each other and while we are climbing reach out and grab the hand of those who are just starting out and give them a little lift. It feels really amazing to pay forward all the good things that have happened to me in the last few months.
