Show Your Work, Reap the Reward


A photo posted by Cassie Brenn (@cassiebrenn) on

You've probably heard of the book Show Your Work by Austin Kleon.  If not, do yourself a favor and read it.  The whole point of the book is that you should show your work.  In other words, put your work in places that others can see it for example - Instagram.   As an introvert, I find this really difficult and as a lazy person, I find this really difficult.  But I do have a desire to connect and share with the wider creative community.   So, I've made the effort to put myself out there a little more.  It hasn't always been easy or comfortable but it has been really fulfilling.   My efforts have been well received and the positive feedback and connection with others makes me want to keep going.   Try it for yourself.
