Martin Hosking - co-founder and CEO Red Bubble
The creative economy - or how the Internet is empowering creative professionals. Taking advantage of these opportunities however requires new skills and even more importantly a different attitude. Waiting around to be discovered is no longer good enough. Creative professionals who take on the task of self promotion - in the nicest possible way - can carve out distinctive new careers for themselves. Those who fail to do so will not only be left behind by the new economy but also the old.
