The REAL reason you should invest in yourself

Invest in Yourself and Craft

To grow as artists, we need to be consistently learning, creating and adapting. Investing in yourself doesn’t only refer to money. Read below to find out why you should be investing in yourself: 

TIME IS GOLD 

Any minute you spend on your craft is an investment in yourself. Practicing. Mentorships. Volunteering. Workshops. All of these activities is an investment that you should actively be seeking out.

SAVE AND PURCHASE FOR YOUR CRAFT

Nothing is free. And if you need to record better quality songs, or paint more masterpieces, treat your work like a priority. Save for it, and buy what you need. Take a certain percentage from your checks and make sure you’re getting what you need.

THE R.O.I WILL COME

Those who invest in their craft, their education, their art and their work will get ahead. Most people are strung with the idea that they can’t afford this or that, but keeping your eyes on become better will show the difference in the end.

TECHNOLOGY IS NECESSARY

We are shifting into a digital age, where the internet is more and more important to the growth of an artist. Keep this in mind when you are thinking about investments. What technology can you use that’ll make your job easier? Do you need an editing software? A phone with a great camera? An app that’ll let you record things? See technology as something that works FOR you.
