I now have Sean McCabe's book called "Overlap." It's about managing two careers: one that gives stability and another that inspires creativity. Basically, this book is intended to show the ropes of starting a business while working full-time. Though I already started my creative business years ago, I still find myself juggling with so many things going on besides holding a day job as an advocate. I've been thinking about ways to streamline my business and I have some ideas. Yes, ideas that may involve some risks, financially and artistically...yet I know things will work out one way or another. That's the exciting part -- revitalizing my creative outlet with new ideas and "never-tried" methods... Plus I am in this place where I'm starting to embrace my relatively new career title: "artist-advocate."  Have had plenty of awkward moments of maintaining my newly hyphenated work identity - since I returned to the 9-5 working world last spring. Just looking forward to a time when I'm able to do both careers -- with confidence and openness to learning. 

So, with all that said, I'm so excited about gaining some new insights and tools, if any, from this book. Something that will help me to balance both my day job and my side hustle. I'll share more later on as I delve deeply into that blue book... 

Onward and upward with the arts!! 

 

 

 

 

 

As I was turning pages of my idea book, I came across this and I recall having created this few weeks ago. Then I thought, what a perfect visual prop to this entry! (Personal revelation: Also I'm using this as a visual reminder to get my "ideal" body back... *sacrasm*)
