"Get into your "Happy Place" and type your About Me info in a text file and copy and paste your information to your Behance ProSite account." I love how Lesa uses her upload and wait times enjoying a frosty beverage and being happy and joyful. Good tips for not letting stress getting in the way of creation and fun!!!
