Creative people in every industry should think of themselves as a business.
Business boils down to two things.
- 1. Making a great product.
- 2. Selling the product to people who need it.
Too many people only focus on turning themselves a great product, and they foolishly ignore the second part.
Learning how to sell yourself is the hardest, yet most important part of getting a job. Getting paid all comes down to meeting the people that are hiring and making sure that they know about you and your skills. I have a presentation based on this concept over at my other blog, Greyscalegorilla.
Make sure you are taking care of both sides of your business!
