  • That was a really good pep talk! Sometimes it’s tough to see the work you do in an objective light. :D

  • LOVE this advice. And right when I really needed it!

  • Good stuff. I have been forced into freelance and wasn’t ever “ready”. But I’m glad that as I attempt to transition into licensing, that there really isn’t a “ready” time… I just need to do it.

  • Great advise Lilla! One of the best things about MATS is we are all working towards the same goal……to grow in art. even though I didn’t go to school for art, I have never felt “less than”. Thanks to you and all of my new found friends I’m going to discover just where I belong . I’m not sure how I discovered this class, but what a great ride it has been……looking forward to growing in Art. Thank you.

  • So great to hear!! I have talked about this with my husband a lot.. I kept on saying:i’m not ready! I’m not good enough.. I have to learn more first! So you can imagine how he laughed when I showed him this video :-) So thanks again Lilla! I’m growing :-))

  • Thank You. It feels like I’ve been freelancing in a vacuum (all alone!) and feel like finding Bootcamp was popping my head up and seeing a whole city of possibility; a larger world of potential work than I realized existed. <3

    February 16, 2015
  • This was just what I needed today in the Bootcamp! Jenny and I are seriously blazing a unique trail that looks so different to what is current and it’s so tempting to jump on the trend tail but know that would take away what we have worked up on our own! It’s refreshing to hear that that thinking is ok. Thank you Lilla in so many ways!

    February 16, 2015
  • This video got in my head this morning. I guess I am ready or not? because I just decided to take the plunge and sign up for MATS A&B.

    Correction: I *AM* ready. :)

    February 16, 2015

  • I’m STILL just starting things and diving in and I’m never fully ready. There’s no such thing. There’s so much to learn and it never ends. xo
