As Yesael says: “Really think about it, and think about all of the things that go into running a studio. You won’t just be sitting around making art. You have to deal with clients. You have to deal with managing talent. You have to deal with billing and a lot of other things that aren’t art-related. … Know what you are getting into before you start.”
