Everything slowly started to happen with the manifestation of making it work.
Practice makes Progress: Everyday reassuring yourself with your vision. Your story is your vision. Reminding yourself of what you’ve done and where you’re going. When you’re truly empowered and know you are here for a reason, are debating on if you can do it or are you stepping into it.
(Example in the podcast)
Jam Room: Having an “I love me wall” as a reminder of your successes and what you do to practice self love, anything that raises you vibrational energy. You must be able to look around and change your environment mentally and light your fire.
Getting Fans: Whatever is causing you to doubt yourself, you must be able to step into the best vision of yourself. If you can say it and believe it, the way you come off to others is more relatable when they can feel it.

Good Note: Quitting her attorney job to work in the arts. Getting a call from one of her friends with nothing but compliments that then linked her with a celebrity that opened huge doors for her. Even when you think no-one is watching, people are watching. The validation will come with the results.
Bad Note: With the art industry being a Muti-billion dollar market, it is very small in terms of how everyone knows everyone. You need to protect your relationships. Stay within the rules of the community wether they are unspoken or not. The more you push yourself into a certain business the more mistakes will happen.
Practice makes Progress: Never get complacent with anything, learn as much as you can. Every industry will continuously go through changes to always better the situation. Do your due diligence with any step that you take. Get informed.
Getting Fans: Early adoption and original ideas. She noticed that art advisors didn’t have social media branding and jumped at the opportunity. Concentrate in what you have by not over stretching yourself. You get fans by doing & sharing.
