If your an "artist", be it, musician, composer, singer, chef, baker, fine artist, painter, writer, or graphic designer, and you can't get people to pay you, then your either not good or playing to the wrong audience.
Have you ever listened to an album and said to yourself "My friend can sing better than that."? Have you ever listened to a song that isn't good in your opinion yet won a Grammy? The reason is HUSTLE! Any goal / achievement you want, you will need to push and work rapidly towards. If you don't, someone else will. You can't lean on your natural abilities to reach your goal.
Dictionary.com defines hustle as to push or force one's way. Another definition is to proceed or work rapidly or energetically.
Talent is defined as a special natural ability or aptitude
There are many talented artist, singers, musicians, mechanics, and chefs but what makes one artist stand out from another? What makes you more attractive to your client. What makes your client want to do business with you versus your competitor? I would argue your Hustle and Ambition is the difference.
So, get out there and make it happen and if you need a graphic artist/ creative partner to spread your message please contact me. I will hustle my talent for your business.
