In conversation with Ellen Porteus
In today’s episode, I got to chat with Ellen, an incredible artist and has worked with clients like Adidas, Disney, Facebook, Instagram, Nike, and so much more. She’s so humble and generous for sharing her story with us today.
For those of you wondering, can I make money out of this? Whether being an artist or designer or anything. Ellen shares an honest story of what it took to get her into a full time artist position with incredible clients. This is an amazing example of someone who’s gone before us and done it and gives us hope that other people can do it. Ellen will tell us what she did and how she got to where she is today. She gave lots of amazing tips but I think what stood out for me in this episode is somebody who had this dream and had a goal and went after it.
