This week’s question

From Anna:

I’m a self-taught mixed-media artist and designer. I keep hearing that creatives should diversify. While I understand the logic behind it in theory, it’s extremely overwhelming for me when it comes to putting it into practice. Especially for a one-woman show like I am.

How do I diversify without losing focus and/or becoming overwhelmed? Or is diversifying all it’s proclaimed to be?
