There are three kinds of people who help you grow emotionally and professionally, and you need to surround yourself with these people. They are:
1. People who support you emotionally.
This includes friends, family, and colleagues who want to see you succeed and help talk you up when you are feeling low. These people are key to helping morale when things are working out perfectly in your animation service and life pursuits.
2. People who support you professionally.
This includes your clients, your co-workers, your boss, and others that have a vested professional interest in your animation service growth.
3. People who challenge you to be better.
This includes your 'competitors' (other artists or animators) and also mentors who urge you to push your creative boundaries. These people help boost your morale as you improve your animation business and achieve your life pursuits.
