Today I wanted to talk about work/work balance. So many of us run creative businesses, which means we have two jobs: business owner, and artist, (and if you business is bigger, also manager). As APW has grown, I've had a hard time not having business owner totally eclipse creative. And while I'm about equally good at both, and I love the mental rigors of entrepreneurship, when I stop writing I'm not putting myself on my own list. This week, I've decided to take writing mornings. I've been leaving the house and going somewhere to just focus on creativity. It's, as ever, hard scary stuff (if only it got easier), but I feel so much more balanced. Who else is struggling with work/work balance, what does it look like for you, and what do you need to do to work on solving it?
