11 Aug Work against the pressure with Amanda Black
Amanda Black knows exactly how to work under pressure and she chooses to work against it. To do that, it’s important to understand your surroundings, the industry, the people that hang around you and most importantly, to understand yourself within that ecosystem.
Especially as an artist, the pressure doesn’t go away, including the stress of making money, and what happens when it disappears. Amanda stresses the importance of having these scary conversations about the future with yourself and to prepare for it. Have a vision that guides you, so that instead of crumbling you become that diamond made under pressure.
“Have a vision in front of you that guides you.” – Amanda Black
