Aim big. Don’t be afraid to put it all out there and if you fall never fear, you can always get back up. Never allow that voice inside your head that whispers, what if… to get in the way of the opportunities you deserve. As an artist working hard to further your career, you owe it to yourself to reach out and grab every chance that comes along. You will not get a yes every time, no one does. But you will learn from every experience and you will find the opportunities that are right for you.
