“I always tell people who are beginning a creative career to go back and look at the early work of artists they admire. If you come across a successful blogger, designer, or artist, especially one who’s been able to generate a full-time income from their creative work, it’s easy to be intimidated.

That’s why you should go back to the beginning—see where they started, and see how it all began. When you do that, you’ll be able to see the progress along the way, most likely including a few mistakes.”
