This session was all about recognising and grabbing opportunities and evaluating the potential blocks and things you already have in your favour. You can see all mine in the crazy mind map on the right.
- Opportunities are floating it is up to you to grab them.
- If they are not then it is up to you to make them.
We were given a fantastic list of Artist newsletters and websites to sigh up to.
Good advice – Keep a list of:
