Yin and Yang: How do you balance work and family?
Every day I am learning a bit more on how to do this. I rely a lot on simplifying house chores, we have a reward system at home and some of the tasks are done by the kids like lunchboxes.
The Drive: What challenges have you overcome?
Fear. That is one of my biggest challenges. I have worked intensely on this feeling for the last year and to be able to overcome it I joined a surf rowing group, it’s not something I have ever done, and the boat bounces a lot in the ocean. I have learned to row and by putting myself in that situation I have learned about self-control and teamwork.
For better or worse: What are the pros and cons of running your own business?
The pros is the flexibility and the reward when you have loyal clients and the people you meet through the journey. The cons is the unknown, and the fact that you can’t switch off. I am always thinking of ways to develop and to build my skills and my business further.
Hopes and dreams: What next?
I would love to collaborate with other creatives in different art forms and maybe have a joint exhibition. I would also like to produce a series on street photography and hold an exhibition similar to the ones I did in 2016. We’ll see!
