Don’t go it alone

Emily Mills, Sketchnote Academy

"When I was first starting out, I wish I had more access to community and accountability.

I did a LOT on my own, and I could have saved so much time and effort if I had other creators alongside me so I could get and give advice, float ideas around, ask questions, be challenged, be exposed to new ideas and other ways of doing things, and find accountability.

Creators should never create alone! We create better when we're together. If you find yourself feeling isolated as a creator, find community ASAP! Your isolation affects you, your work, and your product more than you realize."
