Taking Steps to Accelerate Your Career

(inspirational music) This is the end of module three, Working With Brands. Congrats, you made it till the end. Now the tricky stuff begins. It's not enough to just watch this and hope that your life will change tomorrow. You need to take action. This is not a get professional quick course. This is what's worked for me, but now it's time to find out what works for you. So here are some quick action things you can do. Build a deck for yourself. If you don't have a bio, write a bio, or get a friend to write you a bio. Have some of your best images, and sent it to at least one potential client. See what their feedback is. Work on developing a peer group that you can talk to every week and have firm meetings, you know. Maybe Wednesdays at noon, you know, you meet with them, and you all share things with each other and help out each other. Freelancing can feel like you're on your own and you're the master of your own time. That's what I love about it. But it also comes with a pitfall, whi...

ch is not knowing what to do and when to do it. So develop a routine for what you wanna do. And make sure to stick to it. So for me it means Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays I go skying in the morning, that's there. But I know that the rest of the day I gotta hustle. Weekends, I take them chill. Just build a routine you feel good about but that's gonna challenge you. (inspirational music)
