A Tip from Jackie
Keep Making Yourself Better

make yourself better

Keep making yourself better! Spend time playing and exploring your creativity.

I like to talk about outsourcing the administrative tasks of your business. Think web work, mailing, research, marketing, bookkeeping, photographing items for your web site, sending newsletters, social media etc. The overall idea is that you devote the majority of your time to the things at which you are the best–your chosen work. Outsourcing gives you more time to focus on your work. Don’t waste that time; instead, invest it in your art, your writing, continuous learning, exploration, experimentation, and all the activities that make your work better. Use the time you gain from outsourcing not only to do more client work, but also to increase your own skills. Become more valuable. Learn new tools and techniques that will improve your work or make it more efficient. Add to your repertoire. Deepen your knowledge. Learn from other experts like yourself. Never stop making yourself better!
