Many business and entrepreneurial experts say: We need to specialize in something. Otherwise, we’ll look like “experts of none”.

A mix of photography and digital painting.

Jumping right in and improvising like there is no second chance. Giving every project my best efforts and keep on learning as I go. If we wait till we are prepared enough/good enough/etc, we’ll keep on delaying things. And, in the meantime, time goes by and we won’t get any younger. Waiting till we are […]
