Improvement is something that each and every designer seeks. After all, improvement is growth. The moment we stop improving, is the moment we stop growing. Improving on your designing skills will not only satisfy you, but also the people you are working for, thus, ultimately boosting your confidence.

Ever wondered what it takes to write a killer blog? That’s the question I've been obsessing over for the past 6 months leading up to the launch of my own website.

Again, I blame the blogger … not the viewer.
Building a Network is important. But Building a Network of PAYING Customers is more important. In this week's episode of Inside the Mind we discuss how to build a network of prospects who are going to be the most likely to buy from you.

"The state of social media is no insignificant affair. Nor is it a conversation relegated to a niche contingent of experts and gurus. Social media is pervasive and it is transforming how people find and share information and how they connect and collaborate with one another. I say that as if I’m removed from the media and cultural (r)evolution that is digital socioeconomics. But in reality, I’m part of it just like everyone else. You and I both know however, that’ I’m not saying anything you don’t already know."
