Our family sees us as they want us to be. Not the brilliant artist/entrepreneur our fans, clients and customers know us to be. They have an agenda sourced in the past: On the one hand they encourage our success. On the other hand, if we start to share our brilliance or show our creative genius they will, in they’re own way, poke holes in our best ideas and talk us down. They see us as an intricate, equal part of their life and cannot imagine us growing or gaining ground beyond that.
Important because our beloved family never wants us to change. And the last thing we want is to remain the same.
