When you start out on your own as a designer you’ll find that your first projects may be small ones. You may find yourself doing small jobs for friends and family to get your name out there. The excitement and thrill you get when starting out on your own will probably help you do great on these projects even if they are not as big as you would want them to be. Hopefully, as you get busier and your design work starts creating a demand, you‘ll also start getting bigger and better projects.
My own path with BlackStone Studio has been something like that. One great thing I’ve learned along the way is to always be as dedicated and enthusiastic with small jobs as I am with the bigger ones.

In conclusion, be awesome on small jobs! Don’t disregard or neglect those that come your way. Treat them like they were from a big company because you never know where they might lead to.
