I know… I was shocked when I totaled that up myself!
But I had no direction and no idea of where to even start. I was naive, overwhelmed and completely green.
So first I paid one-stop shop agencies because I needed comp cards and representation. Then I bought random classes and courses because I had no real direction. Then I attended every "industry" event I could find in order to "network" - after all, it's "who you know", right?
