The creative training at which we work so hard to develop a technique is really the foundation to the rest of our careers. Foundations need maintenance and continual care to ensure they're stable, strong and reliable.
The career we spend the majority of our time pursuing often feels completely unrelated to the creative work we're striving for. Hustling, networking, assembling marketing materials, and generally building our 'brand' or 'business' hardly seems like the art that inspired us in the first place.
But these career efforts need to be integrated with our creative skillsets in order for them to be truly effective. They need to be an effortless extension of the craft we love.
