I love that you compared yourself to a rapper. I’m not a rapper but I work with many indie music artists, rappers included, and they all suffer with exploring outside of their comfort zones. I can honestly say that I face the same ridicule as an African American millennial growing up in the inner cities of NYC. My family doesn’t even try to understand what I do, they just want me to work. They think I make all this money freelancing and basically working for free. Many don’t know how to see the bigger picture.
