and small companies. Based in the Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida area,

Neil's Newbies is a Creative Latitude column devoted
to those just starting to hang out their shingle. I'll be
focusing on business startup issues, finding clients, sales,
promoting your practice and all the other nitty gritty must-dos
that fall outside of the creative process.
Some editions will address questions from newbies. Others
will be in the form of articles. So, email
me with what's on your mind, your questions or your concerns
about starting up your creative enterprise. I'd do my best
to get them answered.

to doing what she loves
by Holli Conger
Creative Latitude invites you to indulge those voyeuristic tendencies
you've been keeping in the closet. Join Holli Conger as she

Each month, Holli will be sharing her diary of the good, the
bad, the triumphs and setbacks as she enters the world of illustration.
Be sure to stop back each month to learn what's working and
what's not. Odds are, you'll even get some tips on whether cloth
or disposables are best. Can somebody please pass the Similac®?
