      Weighing Security Vs. Dreams

      I work a job that I don't like for the money. It is seriously killing my soul. I really want to quit my job and focus on building my dream business, which I have been building in my head for months now, but my current job gives my husband and I health insurance and ensures we don't struggle financially. I have a side hustle that brings in some money, but it's not steady. Agggh, I don't know what to do! Should I tough it out and stay at my job that I hate for security? Or, just go for it and focus all my energy on building my dream business?

      No Me-Time Mom

      My daughter is 10 1/2 and since the pandemic started, she’s super clingy. She lets me go to work—no problems there. She has a good daily routine. But at night she doesn’t want me to leave. So I’ve been sleeping with her. It’s all good, my husband says I snore anyways. But I don’t think it’s healthy for her. And she is always asking me if I’m okay and she tells me she loves me about 20 times too much a day. I may be exaggerating but she does say it a bit more than she should. What can I do?

      KYM PRIESS

      Kym Priess (aka “Tomahawk”) is an adventurous, bold creator, musician, singer, actor, on-camera host and performance artist living in Los Angeles. Her work pushes boundaries, forms and comfort levels yet maintains a playful, whimsical and curious tone. Her current focus is her adventure spectacle rock project called STUNTDRIVER. The project straddles rock and art whilst examining the age-old battle between light and dark via sci-fi like personas amidst heavy electro-rock. But this isn’t her only iron in the fire. Priess has a rock’n roll fitness web series called “Tomahawk Training” and is working on the launch of her virtual talk show/variety hour called “The Tomahawk Outlaw Hour.” Kym is from Austin, Texas and loves frozen margaritas with chips and salsa.

      This conversation with Kym was so funny. I laughed the whole time while I edited it. We discuss the creative process and Kym’s artistic journey. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I do!

      Key Takeaways

      • Find your community and be a generous community member. Look for what you can give as opposed to what you can get.
      • Constantly be putting out work, even if it sucks. Constantly creating helps you develop your process. Just keep making!
      • Share your work. Don’t be precious about it. Find ways to put it out.
      • Have a time where you “clock in” to work on your art.
      • Carry a notebook so you can capture inspiration when it comes to you.
      • If you are asked to give feedback on someone’s work, give actionable feedback. If you are asking for feedback on your work, be specific about what you would like feedback on so that your feedback giver can actually give you helpful information.
