Likes And Dislikes

You are able to have a direct impact and influence on placing the creative spin on many projects. You have access to a niche market that you would not usually be directly connected to and this helps to expand your brand and awareness of you. You also have the ability to document the ever changing culture of Barbados implementing your vision to inspire others.

At times you feel to do more personal projects rather than provide work for corporate but that just takes some time management and a little discipline! At times deadlines can add some stress but you building a strng schedule and callender will help to manage that.

Future Scope

There will always be a need for someone to provide writing and music for movies, tv shows and even video games! You will even be needed to help provide content for social media as it continues to expand!
