breaking into the business


New Member
Hey guys, just wondering how you all broke into graphic design or other creative professions. I'm seeing this new year as a chance to really pimp myself and get myself out there but I don't really know how. I've joined my local chamber of trade and commerce, and shall be going to networking events organized by them and also some other events friends of mine have recommended. I'm going to have my website live by the end of January and already have some great feedback from clients I've done work for over the last year.

If you guys have any other tips at all, please let me know. I work in retail at the moment but I want to start cutting back my hours and focusing on my career as a graphic designer, as if I don't, i'll drive myself crazy!
