For creatives, sometimes selling ourselves is the hardest thing. No one likes to blow their own trumpet too loudly and in this nation, even more so.

But you’ve got to do it. Your business needs the sales, and the buyers (believe it or not) also want to buy.

So what’s holding you back? What are you finding most difficult?

We hope to hear from you!
