Oath of the Creative Professional

I am a creative professional. This is my livelihood.

Finding my “why?” allows me to express my vision.

I have developed a solid yet adaptable plan with S.M.A.R.T. goals.

I will continue to hone my skills while keeping an open mind.

I utilize self-assessment, self-investment, and self-promotion.

I am my own brand, carving a niche and rising above the generic clutter.

From creation to development to end user I will seek detailed critique.

Other independent creative professionals are my colleagues.

I understand that fans / customers are my life’s blood.

I am actively involved in my business as well as in my local community.

I am surrounded by positive, honest, proactive team members.

My network was built by learning from and helping others.

I am a creative professional. I have paid it forward.
