Date & Details

Hi all!

Our February career interview episode is nearly upon us. This month, we’re chatting with webcomic author & illustrator Molly Farnsley.

In any creative field, perseverance is 90% of what it takes to be successful. Molly is a fantastic example of perseverance. She started her fantasy webcomic Everpresent way back in August 2016…and she’s still going strong!

This is the kind of stick-with-it-ness that your student has to have if they are going to endure the long journey of creative output.

Join us on Sunday, February 6th at 8 pm EST on my Instagram Live to hear wisdom & advice from someone who has stood the test of time.

Hope to see you there!

P.S. If you can’t make it live, you can always find the show notes and replay link here after the interview.
