What Else Would You Be? | Your Questions, Day 30 of 30

First, thank you so much for coming along with me on these 30 days of Questions! I had a blast answering all of these and I’m sure I’ll do it again — but for now, your final question. We’ll get back to a more regular posting schedule with #FemaleFilmmakerFriday posts after the break. See you in 2020!

If you decided that entertainment wasn’t working, what else would you do? What else could you do?

One of the oft-repeated mantras of the industry is “if you can do anything else, do that!” and I think it’s absolute garbage.

I’m a very smart, capable woman. Of course I could do other things. I don’t want to, but that’s not the same thing as can I. I absolutely could. I would be perfectly capable of opening a tutoring business or teaching or going back to school. I think I would likely wind up in criminal law in some capacity if I wanted to absolutely exit the business entirely.

But I don’t. Not yet. Keeping my head above water and paddling forward into the new year!
