The Business of Graphic Design

Don’t be afraid to ask for help!

By August 27, 2009 No Comments

I always love it when I can save someone HOURS of time by answering a question about software or solve a problem they’ve been struggling with for days. It’s usually something I’ve already sweated over so I’m happy to share what I’ve learned to make my struggles worth it!

A friend of mine had been struggling for days to make a file work on a website. We spent about five minutes breaking down what she’d been attempting to do and discussed the process she’d taken. She’d forgotten one important element, and when I reminded her of that, she fixed it while we were on the phone together and – it worked perfectly! SUCCESS!!

I can’t TELL you how many times people have helped me out that way, or little tidbits on videos or blogs have just given me that LAST bit of information I need to make something work! My husband’s favorite trick is to GOOGLE whatever the problem is…just type the problem into the GOOGLE bar as a question…and see what comes up…he is ALWAYS coming up with answers that way! He calls it using his resources!!

So my point is today, when you’re stuck, frustrated, or need an answer! ASK FOR HELP – I’m happy to be a resource for you!
