As creatives (photographers, artists, graphic designers) we are in the business of creating 'visual' products. Yet somehow, we are always approached by both individuals and businesses asking us to work for them for free. In today's economy - we need to learn how to say NO.

I was taught to always say please and thank you, have respect for others and to be kind. In business, this is one of the things that has helped us to give our customers outstanding service.

Going bankrupt: what does that mean? There are a lot of myths and misconceptions regarding “going bankrupt” or filing for bankruptcy.
Even some “experts” on the topic aren’t helping. For example, there was a recent opinion article in a well-known magazine by an attorney, who spent a lot of energy perpetuating the misconception that bankruptcy is never a good idea.
