"Getting paid to Play" The Design Trust talk with John Williams, author of F**k Work Let's Play" I've had a zoom today at 1pm.
This meeting was truly insightful in how everyone does start off in the same point but if you do what you want to then enjoy it. I often self doubt my work and whether is it all worth it?

That I love this, this is my passion but trying to get out there is always something that is fortunately something I am just learning.
