Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

The first step to getting your foot in the door, in the profession, is to gain experience. For me, everything was self-taught with a lot of trial and error. Failure is a big part of success—it teaches you how to pivot when needed. When I first started, I would do a lot of events for free just to gain experience as well as grow my portfolio. Social media was very helpful. Also, having the right mindset is also a big must!
