I create because I have to. Because I have this thing in me that boldly expresses itself and wishes to communicate. No permissions, no apologies. That's the easy part. The hard part is turning that creativity into a business, into commerce; into a product. And, that's where things often go sideways. We live and we learn to stay on message despite alternative motives, pop-up influences and soul-crushing obstacles. It's tricky to trudge through but you'll thank yourself and those who support you when you cross the finish line. Nobody put a gun to your head. Go with your gut.
