You've likely heard it before but I bet you haven't done anything
You know that old adage about the shoemaker? Simply, if your art is
shoemaking but you're hobbling around in a tattered pair, you're
sending a bad message.
You don't have to have the most elaborate shoes or best shoes you've
ever made, but for goodness sake wear a set that don't welcome
If you are guilty of this professional faux pas let me tell you what I
might be thinking: you're a liar. Your art or talent doesn't really
exist and you're just someone who makes shoes because you have no
choice. Quite frankly, I don't want to buy your shoes any more.
Are you so caught up in producing your product that you're hurting
your own reputation? Or are you broadcasting your weaknesses because
you don't even know what they are?
Think about it.
