Let’s face it, as creatives the idea of ‘business’ is kind of a turn off for most of us. We want to create. We want to produce. We want to make a change. And we want to do all of these things while getting paid.

In my last article, I spoke about my new endeavor that I was taking on. I was joining ThePowerMBA to brush up my know-how and knowledge about business.

As a brand designer I always felt the need to get a deeper understanding about business so that I can provide more meaningful solutions to my clients.
