The flood of information and tools needed to have successful microstock sales has been overwhelming me at the moment. Add into all of that the need to keep learning more about photography and digital imaging, plus the need to keep progressing as an illustrator, and you have one frustrated microstocker. It's important to keep up with the publicity and networking side of microstock as it is a business. But, the creative side is just as important as without new creative input, the images start to get a stale repetitive look. I'm finding it hard to do everything and keep progressing in all areas. The flood of technology information available is particularly daunting. It multiplies daily.
How much time do all of you who are a one person business spend keeping up with the avalanche of information? How do you still find time to keep learning and trying out new ideas? it's a delicate balance. How do you manage it all?
