Join Petrula Vrontikis for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Running a Design Business: Starting Small.
Starting your own business can be scary. There are so many unknowns. …We as designers tend to fear the business part of what we do. …Because most of us are unfamiliar with it. …Be gentle on yourself as a new business owner. …There will be ups, and downs. You will make mistakes, but dust yourself …off, adjust as needed and move on. We can't predict the future, but we can …prepare for it. You will find it to be one of the most …rewarding things to do as a designer. Just watching this course is a great beginning.…
Do great work and make your clients proud. …
