Hi guys. I’ve stumbled on your podcast and have been listening to them while working at my day job. Thanks for all the great tips and tricks. I’ll be looking into the mind mapping tonight. I’m trying to figure out how to profit from my skills as an illustrator in the quickest way possible. Right now I’m planning on opening an online store on Etsy to sell prints while I work on getting freelance work. Also, thanks for all the CT references. I’m originally from Granby and my husband is from Simsbury and we now reside in New Hampshire. I bought my first car through the great Yankee Flyer. Anyway, thanks again!
