When you look at someone like Maine working on one project after another – from shoots, to graphics, to whatever randomness she ends up doing, really – your jaws just kinda drop and in you’re head, one word stands out: how?
Think of millenials and Maine is on the VIP list. She’s got the skills alright, but it’s really her commitment to get the work done that makes her thrive in this industry, Stache years onward. We’re pretty sure that’s why Raymond, then editor of YoungStar, took her in to take care of art directing. This year Maine will celebrate her third year by becoming editor to YoungStar online, going live November 24th. Mark your calendars friends!
This episode is loaded with so much value, and coming from a person who knows what she’s doing. We learned so much from Maine, just some being – how simply creating and sharing your work attracts bigger opportunities and the importance of knowing you’re worth especially when making a sustainable career out of your creative urges.
We’re telling you right now, you’ll be missing out if you don’t listen to this from start to finish ♡
