Going Solo

Wanna know what made me start the5to9life.com in the first place? Check out the following video and make notes of the advice that pushed me to starting this website.

Going Solo. from Studio Botes on Vimeo.

I posted this over at Thirteen Itches a few months ago, but I also really wanted to share its message here too. The advice given in “Going Solo” basically gave me the indication, motivation and just a clear sign to start the5to9life.

I’ve been at my corporate job for over four years, and I’ve always yearned to do something creative on the side. First, I studied to get the proper qualifications but upon my completion in August, I had no idea where to start.

That’s where I discovered this video. And thank goodness I did! If you need a dose of some great advice, watch this video. You won’t regret it.

It was created for the Toffie Festival 2011, and shares advice from local (South African) and international designers on starting their own business, but can be taken into account on other sticky situations that you encounter in life. Take some notes.
