A Little Inspiration to Get You Started in 2021

Cheers to 2021! A new year means new opportunities :)

We are so excited to see where this new year takes the ISA Community and what amazing things together we will accomplish. Even though 2020 was a challenging year (that's an understatement), we were so impressed by what our community was able to achieve amidst the craziness and uncertainty.

If you felt at all depressed, unmotivated, or like you lost your creative spark, please know it's okay. You are not alone! The ISA is here to support you and help kick things back into gear. Let's use 2021 to rediscover that creativity, your passion for storytelling and to connect to others in the industry, even if on our Zoom events, because every little bit helps. :) And please join us in celebrating these success stories below. Hopefully they'll get you inspired, motivated, and on the right path in the new year!
