081. You don’t need to be an asshole to be a boss.
Being a creative professional is not easy. The “starving artist” profile is often romanticized because it’s seen as an artist who’s more passionate about the craft than making a living. However, this isn’t something to strive for. This life is not for the faint of heart and any time we speak on our lifestyle, we should be vulnerable enough to share the difficulties that we experience. Remember all the times you thought about quitting? How about the moments we were broke? Or the times we didn’t have clients and had to take jobs that weren’t associated with our craft? Let these moments humble us and make us grateful for the success that we have.
