WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE PIECE OF ARTISTIC ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED, AND FROM WHO?
“Don’t do it just to seek approval, get a high place within this industry, or to prove others wrong. Do it because you’re the only one who can tell the stories you can, and that you can do it with laughs, love, tears, and whiskey. The difference between the two is one of them is fun. It’s just a matter of taking action.” –Me trying to summarize many pieces of advice I took from my mentors, friends and family with a grain of salt and formed into one giant ball of salt.
