I'm not minimizing the fear the pandemic has created in all our lives. Remember, I live in one of the more stupid states, Florida. I understand how immobilizing fear can be.

The panademic isn't going to go away with one big giant sweeping cure - that means you've got to stay focused on making the most out of downtime and grow your skills as an artist.

We may all be feeling the fatigue and even trauma of being isolated over the last few months, but that doesn't mean any of us are really alone. These are just a few of my favorite resources. There's also Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube - just search for your favorite photographer or educator, and you're bound to find more great content.
And if none of that helps get you refocused on your business, you know where to find me. I won't always have the answers, but my network sure does. And we're all here to help you through these tough times!
