Issue 2: Beginning & Believing: How To Get Started
Whether you’re dreaming up a new project, a personal challenge, or an adventure, bringing any of them to life requires the same thing: a first step. It’s often the most difficult step to take.
This month in PHLEARN Magazine we’ve been sharing stories and encouragement from fellow creatives about getting started. We hope that by reading these articles you will move from the dreaming-about-it phase and right into the thrill of forward motion. We’ll be here to cheer you on as you get going.
“The only fear that you should ever work with is the fear of the disappointment you get from not trying.” – Chance Sutliff, Phamily Member
