Being ‘indie’ is hard
Indie is a cool word for independent or let’s be honest and say ‘alone’. Feeling kind of alone as I try to troubleshoot technical issues with my website and my videos. I think about how it would be if I was rolling in money and could hire consultants to help with my website, or designers to do my graphics. Or walk down the hallway in my cool office and ask the tech geek, “Hey, got a minute?” and she helps me over coffee break while we discuss the new book she is reading. Another friend from marketing walks over to ask if we saw the latest viral video on youtube. We would discuss our feelings, I would get my work done and then go home to play with the kids and eat dinner together….instead of waking up at 5 a.m and racing against the clock to get stuff done before breakfast and lunch packing and jumping into the car to drop off my daughter to school in pjs…rush the second one to brush, dress and drive him to school. Rush home and work for 3 hours before I pick him up again. Try to stay off my computer till dinner and bed, but fail and do a half assed job of being indie nari and mama bear. End of rant.
