A wonderful book to inspire forward movement in your dreams to make a business out of your creations. The prompts at the end of each chapter, "Your Turn: Reflect, Discuss, Journal," are thought-provoking. Even though I have personally achieved success in my career and side-hustle, I learned from Anna's insights and ideas. I look forward to making some changes in how I do business. Thanks, Anna, excellent job! Excited for your next book.

It has taken the world a little while to catch up to what Anna has been doing for years as an entrepreneur. In Your Creative Calling, she lays out a proven roadmap with stories from her journey about how to get going and get success in this new online world we are all a part of. What makes this book great is not just the to-dos but the personal touch. Anna has a great story. It is full of struggles, moments of wanting to give up but overcoming those for the sake of the place she feels called. If you are at all thinking about stepping out into the jungle of the new online world, this needs to be at the top of your stack of books you need to read. There isn't a page where you will not find something helpful!

The kind of book you wish you had been able to read earlier in your career. Anna Sabino speaks from her experience in pursuing a full creative, stable career. It is not just encouraging and insightful but it is practical and helpful in knocking down the walls that are keeping you from embarking in creative entrepreneurship away from a 9-5 grind. It has all of the tools to help you plan and grow as an artist and business owner! Would definitely recommend.

As a fellow creative, "Your Creative Career" has been long overdue. Anna's 12 creative insights leave something for any type of creative - whether that's business, music, blogging...you name it! - and provide actionable takeaways that will likely address at least a few struggles that any creator reading this is facing. Personally, I've needed a "system" for awhile, and to be honest I jumped straight to that chapter / insight before the rest of the book. While I'd definitely recommend the approach of reading this one front-to-back, it's the type of book where you can say "Hey, that sounds like something that would address MY problem!" and Anna's insights will be able to help you out.
