In this episode of the Create! Podcast, hosted by Ekaterina Popova, the founder of Create! Magazine, she discusses common misconceptions artists have, specifically the bias thinking that others have it easier or better. She emphasizes the importance of honoring one's current situation and discusses the challenges and realities faced by self-employed artists versus those balancing corporate jobs or other responsibilities like parenthood. Ekaterina talks about the financial instability, lack of benefits, and the need for discipline, time management, and self-motivation when self-employed. She contrasts this with the challenges of limited time, burnout, and missing out on networking events when working a corporate job. She encourages listeners to view their paths in a more lighthearted way, to focus on their own goals rather than comparing themselves to others, and to appreciate the journey they are on.
