  • Feb 13 2012: Hello, Janet! I would like to ask you how would you define confidence and how important do you think confidence is when it comes to creative jobs? Moreover, how do you recognize the area you want to be creative in? And how do you get past people who just say let's do something creative just for the sake of saying it and don't really mean it? Thank you!
