Babysitting, doing mostly business stuff today. The fact is business stuff is an important part of life, though creative folks may want to avoid dealing with it. It can mean the difference between getting your work out there or not. It can be the difference between being bogged down by business snafus or free and clear to pursue your creativity. One of my former bosses said (I did not like him) “Are you ready to play hardball.” He meant getting down to business. When I complained about the work drudgery one day he said, “That’s why they call it work.” True enough. I never forgot those two down-to-earth and wise statements.
