This episode was originally published as my 101st video on my YouTube channel. In it, I take you through the major events of my 30-year career in branding and design. We'll get into the highs, the lows, and everything else in between that contributed to where my business is today.
I'll give you a hint: the secret lies in taking advantage of tangential opportunities that present themselves and leveraging them for the new skills they can teach you and keeping at it despite any challenges that come your way.
I talk more about these in the podcast but here are some truths you probably didn't know about me:
1. Branding was never my first career--I studied to be something else!
2. I went through several watersheds in my career before I found contentment in what I was doing. I share why you will too and how you’ll be better for it.
3. I was over 30 when I began my career in branding and design. So don’t think it’s ever too late to start.
Thanks for listening! If you enjoyed this episode of the podcast, head on over to the following links for more of my work and some valuable resources to get you started on your own branding initiatives. Until the next episode!
