All of a sudden I’m on this board with amazing people figuring out how to put on great events. I found people were so nurturing creatively; if you have a slight doubt in yourself, they’re like ‘you can do it!’
In Newcastle everyone knows each other and it doesn’t seem quite as competitive. In Sydney, it’s very hush hush.
I’ve gotten over my burnout and now I’m fresh into starting up my creative agency called Human Again. To make sure I don’t work around the clock this time, I’ve got a new system.
