“If you have the skill, just start. Post your work on social media. Even if they don’t react to your post but they see it. People might not like or comment but they screenshot and keep the screenshot for future reference."

The young woman stresses that there is nothing nobler than starting small and working yourself up:

“Practice every day. Don’t rush to pay rent when starting your business. You can start in your room, in the garage, or your house. I used to work in the house sometimes. Don’t forget to treat clients equally. Be nice to your clients.”

The good sis has many samples of her work on Facebook. The post below is one example thereof:
