Great Advice Pat. I'm actually using my iPad Air 2 to write my book. By using a combination of One Note and Pages and the Voice Dictation Feature I'm able to organize all my thoughts and write in a way that matches my speaking. Because of iCloud I can then go to my iMac later and do all the editorial and clean up I need to handle.

This just works well for me because it allows me to brain dump in a way that is still usable.

Maybe Pat can do what Gary Vee does and go back and cut and edit the best chunks of a video.

Check out this video where Jose Caballer shares some his struggles in starting and running a Design Business!

I think most of us can relate to this vlog!

I'm going to get the 7100 when this comes out, the new one isn't anything special and they need to do more with 4k video arena before I'm convinced . For 4k I'd go Sony at this point. If they had went flip screen instead of tilt then I would buy it!

So the audio was fantastic. When you do vlogs you should get the pistol grip accessory to help you keep it steady. This was an interesting and raw behind the scenes look at you and I really thought it was amazing and heartfelt. I think you spoke to what a lot of people including myself struggle with sometimes.

It's important to take care of yourself. Even with the value I create for other people, I recognize that it also comes from a bit of a selfish place. I want to be acknowledged for what I've learned and the time I've put it in. I also want the benefit of being in a position to control my relationships in a way I couldn't if I wasn't my own boss. I get to decide what interaction I am going to have and that is something that is very important to me, especially to maintain my mental health and eliminate my own anxiety.

You always have to find a balance and a way to take care of yourself. If you don't you can help anyone else and you can achieve the things you want.  I have to juggle 10+ clients a month on top of managing my community and continuing to market my personal brand and it's a lot. But I also have to remember to eat, sleep and keep myself entertained and happy and sometimes that means I have to shift priorities based on what I need and not what others need.

My advice would be not to beat yourself up about this, and to hold yourself accountable to some bare minimums, but also to learn to let go. Firmly decide what is important and execute on it.

Photographer Graphic Designer Digital Artist
Introduction
Roberto Blake is a Graphic Designer from Brooklyn New York, with a mutli-discipline skill set that alllows him to design for across mediums. Roberto takes photography assignments and digital art and illustration commissions.

"Graphic Design is more than just what I do, its a core part of who I am and what I believe in. Today's Graphic Designers are more like alchemist, we take something, break it apart, and remake it into something people can use. We turn abstractions into stunning visuals that drive people in one way or another. We turn words into STATEMENTS, we turn art into MOVEMENTS, and were turn people in SYMBOLS."

"Through Graphic Design and what its taught me I've learned how to create my own bridge between what can be imagined and what is real, and it is by this philosophy that I live and breathe. Beyond my career Graphic Design is WHO I AM."
