Colleen, I applaud your enthusiasm and desire to learn. I really do. But just because you`re at SuN doesn`t necessarily mean you want to be successful. , the great majority of them aren`t going to follow their dreams. Please don`t think I`m being negative or trying to dampen your enthusiasm, because I`m not. I`m just keeping it real.
. You still have to invest in your education in other ways. but I still invest a ton of money in marketing books and CD`s. I`m continually learning.
I hope you read this post in the positive and constructive spirit with which it was intended.
I did not take your posting as negative nor can anyone dampen my spirit for success. I, like you, believe that you have to continually educate yourself, which I do with conferences, tons of books, courses and other resources. But now I have found this site with instant answers to questions and I am giddy with the information I have obtained at this point. I am awed by the experiences of all the people who post and I am spurred on by their responses. Yes, Dale you are spurring me on....Again, thank you for giving me information that is invaluable and the positive reinforcement.
Today I am planning my marketing strategy, my PR strategy and I am preparing for a wholesale show on February 15th. I am also getting my "box" together to send for admission into a juried NY show in September. I believe I am a "doer," and not just a "dreamer." And please, continue to keep it real, it can help shake things up.
