Robin: I am an Artist
As I worked feverishly on this Creative Biz Marathon at a table in my local Starbucks, I heard the words, 'you are always here working so hard." I look up to see a gentleman that I have seen often at this Starbucks. And he is right. I am like a madwoman when I come here to work. I am a military wife whose husband is deployed. I have no family ties here where I live and I have a 5 year old who is not in school yet. She is enrolled in preschool for nine hours a week so, after drive time, I have about 7.5 hours to get done whatever I need to get done for this business I am building. So the insanity of working a business plan in 24 hours - well that was about all I could spare so BRING IT ON!
Anyway, I let myself breathe a moment and chatted with the man for a few minutes and then he asked the question: What do you do? And for the first time EVER without any HESITATION I said,
" I am an artist."
