First, get a training or teach yourself either online or through books. It makes the journey easier. Don't demean other peoples work or take the shine off others. Never  limit yourself to what you have been taught, open your mind. Inspiration is all around you. Be creative, the possibilities and designs that you can come up with are limitless.  Don't compete badly, find your own space and rule it.
