You are probably thinking, whoa, diane I thought you had a show yesterday. Yes, I did it was a Rapid Recharge and actually ties in so well with this episode. It was also about trying something new.

I launched my new service, Recruiting Creatives, check out the episode here. Dustin Lee and Suzanne Sarver helped me out yesterday with the launch because they have both used the service.

Trying new things and stepping out into something uncomfortable and new is the theme for this week. Amarilys Henderson is an illustrator who works mainly in watercolor.
