I went on a coffee date this morning.

And it really truly served as such a great reminder as to why it is SO important as a freelancer to reach out to the creatives around you and build your circle.

I met with the INCREDIBLE photographer Judith Belle of Judith Belle Adventure Stories, and we sat and chatted for ages about our careers, our paths in this world, the challenges facing female photographers, and shared tips and tricks to build each other's and our own businesses.

It was amazing. Especially for this particular photographer (i.e., me!) who far too often ends up spending a helluva lot of time stuck behind her computer, plugging away endless hours of work.

Someone else who fully advocates for the building of your industry circles is the brandologist Jasmine Star. She's hosting seven hours of free online tutorials this evening on Creative Live, one of my other favourite industry tools. Don't miss it.
