All The Women Behind Me + Resources for DesignersNovember 18, 2020 - filed under: Behind the scenes
I HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS POSSIBLE UNTIL I’VE DISCOVERED OTHER SUCCESSFUL WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS WHO MODELLED IT FOR ME.
I was in my early 30’s when I started to like the idea of having my own business. Not that I knew what that would be nor I actually thought it being possible for me. I wasn’t that lucky, smart, talented…
Then one day I was searching the web for some pretty, colourful wallpapers when I stumbled upon Bonnie Christine’s course on CreativeLive. And that was it! I remember it as if it was yesterday.
Not only I’ve learned Adobe Illustrator but I started to believe that I can create the life I desire making art and being successful.
Bonnie’s gentle reminder “ there’s room for you ’’ stayed with me ever since, especially through the days when I was having second guesses about that room after all. Will I fit in? Could I make it as a self – taught designer?
Somehow along the way with every stage of my business I would magically come across some other lady – preneur who was sharing her process, being open about her business, talking about different aspects of being your own boss, showing the latest tools or simply inspiring me with her success.
Some content was free, some content I had to invest in (and very gladly I did!) however they all had one thing in common – this yearning to pave the way, to show us that we too can succeed, to teach us how, to inspire…
So this is actually my long letter of gratitude to all the amazing teacheress out there & a resource guide to help you along the way, because no, you don’t have to do it yourself and why should you?!
Drumroll please !!!
