Many people think that working in the creative business requires a “normal” set of skills. Truth being told we have crazy schedules and we even have different jobs to keep up with our levels of satisfaction. Some people call us “workaholics”. I prefer to define our generation as bosses. Like Sophia Amoruso has told us (and many other important personalities in the world of business): nothings happens without effort. Back in the day things were different, but that’s not an excuse to affirm firmly that nowadays you don’t have opportunities. We must underline, good conducts: be your own example, be who do you want to be. Work for it. Plan it. Organize it. But before you throw yourself profusely into anything, make sure to have space on your agenda to get out of your vicious circle. Stop and think of what you’ve done to contribute to your end game. Little by little. Build your career. Remember: it begins within you.
