What happens when you take that leap and your dream becomes reality? What happens when things get tough and you continue to persevere? Janine Vangool, the publisher, editor and designer of UPPERCASE – a quarterly print magazine for the creative and curious, shares with us her creative journey and how UPPERCASE quite quickly grew into the magazine and publisher that it is known as today! Janine also shares a REAL moment – how long she had to keep at her dream, showing us how hard work and perseverance really does pay off, and encouraging us not to give up. As an additional perk, Janine shares the two “don’ts” when submitting work for her consideration, and why it’s so important to take notice of directives when pitching work.

Make a decision & then ACT!
Ask yourself, what are the tools already in your toolbox that you can leverage for your next step?
Your dream and vision WILL evolve, and that’s OK.
The things you love doing may become boring after a while. You may not be challenged. Ask yourself what else can you now layer on to your business? What new thing can you learn to expand your skills and passion?
You do not need to stick to the same thing forever! Shift!
Even if they are years ahead, make decisions in your business and life right now that line up to what you know about that dream so far.
Your self-confidence builds as you continue to create something.
When there are obstacles, don’t quit – because obstacles will ALWAYS be there. It doesn’t mean that you’re not supposed to be doing this thing.
