“You look around you, everything was designed by someone, that TV, the contour of the TV, the desk, the screen. Everything that you see was touched by someone somewhere.

“My encouragement to freelancers is if you have that dream, start building that customer base, start making those relationships with those who have been there before you. You have to create that environment for yourself.” – Brian Onorio
