Am I too late to say 'White Bunny Rabbit' or whatever? Probably.
Anyway, it has been quite a busy period really, clocked up my fair share of motorway miles traversing the length and breadth of the country.
Photography wise it's been wonderful to work with some old clients again as well as develop great relationships with new ones.
On a consulting and entrepreneurial front it's been an absolute honour to speak at a number of universities around the country. I've been lucky enough to impart many insights to the creative industry as well as fostering and nurturing the drive and determination to bite the bullet and carve out your own future as an entrepreneur, whether that's within the creative arena or indeed any business area.
With the right level of knowledge, patience, determination and willingness to 'make it happen' anyone really can set their sights upon a future they're in control of, that's not to say that the route won't contain a few detours and potholes along the way, but tenacity and a calm reflective approach will allow you to succeed.
Interms of my drive and determination it is all about the foundations of your venture. That's you! Like a primed fighter or indeed the house you live in, before you see the honed and chiseled perfection you start simple with the foundations. Once you're in good shape you can focus your energies externally and build, develop and grow, but never loose sight of those foundations, refer back afford yourself time to reflect and observe impartially upon your progress.
Analyse the direction you're taking, has it changed? Are you still being true to yourself or are you adapting in a positive way and the deviation is a welcome one that doesn't impede upon your end goal or development as an entrepreneur?
the future is yours, shape well.
Until next time ...
