The Secret Handshake is an online resource for creatives looking for insider insight, honest answers & solid solutions. TSH provides year-round advice, local events and one yearly conference. I participated at the 2014 TSH conference “Hike” as a panelist. During the discussion I expounded on the in’s and out’s of going freelance. I can only hope that the attendees learned as much about the need for a mentor as I learned about African American guys needing spot make-up done, before recording in 80 degree weather.
