Is mentoring a thing of the past?

Thankfully I have the pleasure of working with a bunch of colleagues that like to push the envelope on design…and that means pushing me to produce the best design to fill my client’s needs. But what about up and coming artists? It used to be that you gave back to your industry. When the tide came in, all ships rode the wave. I don’t see it happening in today’s market. An article at Fast Company, “Stumbling Up the Ladder: Ad Agencies Neglect their Brightest Prospects”, provides some interesting food for thought on the subject.

If you’ve got a story about training in your industry or lack thereof, leave a comment below and let me know about it. If you like this article…like it! Share it with your friends—send it around!

“Are you too old to do what you love?”

I absolutely love providing creative services that get results; and I’m very fortunate to know and enjoy what I do. Have I missed opportunities? Sure. I had an opportunity for a free ride back to college, but I thought I was too old. When I look back I want to smack myself on the head. If I only knew back then what I do now! It really is never too late to learn.

That’s why I think Marie Forleo’s video is so timely for many people. She gives some great examples of people hitting their stride in their later years. She’s fun to watch too! So check out her Q&A Tuesday video below, “Are you too old to do what you love?”.

I’d love to hear your story, so write a comment below. And if you like this post, please share it. Thanks so much for reading and watching!
