What is the most valuable piece of advice/wisdom you’ve received? Dreaming is only half the equation; you must make a plan and follow through on each step. You may stumble along the way but learn, grow, be flexible and make adjustments from the failures and successes and just keep going. There is a quote I keep in my home studio that reminds me daily; “Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard”.
