I'm Starting Anyways

Day 1 of a [hopefully] lifetime of being a full-time artist + business owner. And the stakes could NOT be higher. Not only do I have all the bills every other contributing adult does, I also have a 6yr old daughter, a fiance, a new puppy, a wedding that we want to happen in Oct 2022, getting into a better living space, and wanting to feel successful and proud of myself on top of all that. Most people tell me this is probably the wrong time to go all-in on my dream. But from my stance,

when is it a good time to NOT go all-in on your dreams? Never.

So I am all in. And everything is at stake. I have no idea what is going to happen next.

I want to be transparent, I want you to know me and I get to know you. I want to talk numbers, I want to talk about harsh truths doing this, I want to talk about learning to be my own best cheerleader.

  • Financially: I need to bring in almost $1,000 / month to just support my family.

  • Harsh truths: I'm starting at $16/month and >500 social media followers. With no backup plan.

  • Cheerleader: At the end of the day, I have to be my own best cheerleader because only I can motivate myself to do better than I did the day before. To be better than I was the day before.

For those who've followed this journey, you know I've opened up about my old friends, anxiety and depression. These guys do NOT like what I am doing. They tell me I'm not good enough. I don't have a good starting point. I'm going to fail. This will never support my family. I'm not ready. But:

I am starting anyway.

I'm showing up. I'm getting messy. I'm learning. I'm improving. And I'm following my dreams.
