(this isn’t her advice I just enjoy Marc Johns)

This is the advice…..

STAY BUSY

being motivated and hardworking are qualities that future employers are looking for. Work hard to get to where you want to be.

PROMOTE EVERYTHING

If you’re in an exhibition/entered a competition/working on a new piece….Whatever you’re doing post updates on the process. Promote it who knows what opportunities will come from it. 

NETWORK

Make genuine connections with people. Get to know people outside of your own discipline  Use social media. Talk to lots of people. Exchange business cards. Keep in touch.

BRACE YOURSELF FOR FAILURE

Nothing comes easy. If you want to be successful you have to work hard for it and be prepared to hit some bumps along the way.
