Why do so many artists and creatives fail in their quest to earn a living doing what they love??????
I’m often so scared to talk about money, and I feel like so many of us in the artistic community (and especially as women) have a stigma against bringing up rates, monetizing creativity, etc. I really want to change this about my own personality in 2019.
I certainly have struggles with valuing myself and what I do. Because I am self taught and word with my iphone, I often think my photography or content skills aren’t good enough to charge clients money and have SO often settled for free products instead of $$ because of those limiting beliefs.
This makes me truly sad and angry at myself. I often provide brands with basically free ad campaigns that are filled with my vision, ideas, hours and hours of my effort, props and equipment I have bought myself, and not to mention hours of post production editing. All of this is worth so much value, and when we don’t charge and raise our standards as artists is easy for others to dismiss what we do as a “hobby” or “side project”.
The good news is that our creativity and future it in our hands!
DON’T SETTLE for the mediocre or average! Set a high standard for yourself and let others rise up to meet you! Abundance is already present within you. Let’s not limit ourselves!
