I often speak about Milestone moments, I just didn't realise I would have one impact me so hard at just.this.moment.
The creative industry is what I am most passionate about, and inspired by.
I am one of you, the fundamentals of creativity come a lot easier than the fundamentals of business.
Being there, in front of so many talented people, with guest speakers who I admire so, I wondered... How did I get here? It's not luck, not some far-fetched notion. I always knew I would go back to educating on some capacity, find my voice somehow in an industry where unfortunately many tried to mute me.
For those who have been following us for a while now, you would recall attending previous seminars. Somehow I allowed people to cloud my judgement and ability, and stopped educating. I, who love nothing more than this, was stopped dead in my tracks...what is meant to be will be, don't ever forget that.
The importance of understanding not only how to survive but thrive as a creative is so vital to me, and more so my legacy to you.
I hope to keep learning, in order to keep teaching. I hope to see all your businesses grow and flourish with wonderful success. I hope to have the confidence to continue the discussion around failing just as much as around success... as well all know very well, there is no such thing as overnight stardom.
Continue giving, it comes back. Continue sharing and above all remember, we are human- we are not a programmed and curated account online.
Don't read into things, pick up the phone, congratulate one another, and don't for one second believe that if you try and "take someone down" that somehow that position will be yours for the taking... it's not the way the world works, and certainly not how Wedded Wonderland does either xx
