In this episode, we talk to Kristy Drutman, founder of the Brown Girl Green podcast and media series, about the power and responsibility that comes with having influence. We discuss finding our personal roles in movements that we care about, as well overcoming imposter syndrome and learning to be open and honest with our communities. We also highlight the importance of setting personal and ethical boundaries so as not to lose sight of our original intentions.

In this episode, we continue our discussion with Kristy Drutman about setting boundaries in our creative work. We acknowledge how difficult it can be to say “no” to a project and brainstorm ways to overcome this barrier. We also talk about whether and/or how much to charge, as well as how to maintain artistic integrity while trying to make money. Kristy inspires us to see ourselves as multi-dimensional beings and to value all parts of ourselves as much as we value our creative output.
