Career Q&A – Michelle Little Photography

Hello everyone! I'm proud to say that I am going to start my Career Q&A series up again (if any of you remember it from Roasted).  I have to admit I was a little bit bummed about coming back from holiday, and the thought of getting back to work and getting back into the hustle had me a bit down.  I was thinking how hard it is to be an entrepreneur and how we need to support each other more ...
