Hello all! I am currently going through the 48 Days to the Work You Love book/schedule. I'm 37 years old, and right now, I am working in a food packing facility as a machine operator, and I know this…Continue
Welcome. I would invite others to comment but yes this can be a point of contention if your example played out. So I think i understand some graphic design stuff but if i speak incorrectly feel free to correct me. So my thoughts would be to start off online. Is this a possibility? that would help with the scenario you laid out and your propensity towards introversion.
Hey, all! I'm a graphic designer at a small print shop. I want to go out on my own with freelance graphic design but I have apprehensions of competing with my employer. Can you provide suggestions on this subject? I'm fearful of seeking out clients face to face while working here. I'd hate to solicit my services and hear someone say, "Hey, aren't you the designer at...?"
I know there is a possible need for my service. I would love to sit with these people and help them to look their best.
I'm looking for a new position that would allow me to actively seek clients and not compete with my current employer and also move me away from a stressful management situation.
I'll include that I'm introverted and an information seeker. Perhaps I'm seeking psychological reassurance too. I know I can take more action steps. Perhaps I need a guiding hand.
Thank you for your guided help as I search to grow towards design success.
I am currently reading "Choose Yourself!" by James Altucher. It is a great book about how to look at yourself in a new way and face issues in this ever changing world. As some of you already know, the standard JOB is starting to change dramatically. This book will help you though that, let me take that back. It is helping me regain the confidence to get in the game more and realize my full potential.
Tim, thanks for asking!
I would also like to ask each one of you to name the best book/s you have read that gave you some great nuggets for business, life, or your design career.
hey guys, hope you are all doing well.
Make sure you post you website to this page so that others can look at your work.
Howdy y'all I'm from Texas and I have an interest in designing and planning. I hope to learn more the processes of planning and designing and share what I have learned with y'all.

Hello all, I am an illustrator based out of Orange County, CA. Looking forward to contributing to this group.
Welcome, I went over and reviewed your work very nice. there are a few people here that are in need of a good draftsman so maybe they will have you help them.
Congratulations on your graduation with honors, that is a great accomplishment. I look forward to seeing and hearing some fresh new ideas from you in the architectural design arena.
