What she shares on this episode

What is driving you today to be better at what you do than the day before? What motivates you to be the best?

We are often caught up in the here and now that we don’t look at sustainability as artists. If you build your careers on a platform that is going to change in a couple of years you’re going to have nothing. The industry is changing at a faster pace than you can keep up and at the end of the day all you’re left with is your talent.

What you do with what you have is contingent in giving you the credibility that you need to make it big in the industry. If you’re creative and talented don’t limit your experiences because you’ll never know how the path winds.

As Denosh says, own your craft, own your performance, work on it, be diligent and keep going.
