Why artists are poor?
I have received quite a few talk requests here on Qoorio from young people aspiring to create.
One of the most pressing question for young creative is the managment of time, since most juggle between jobs and projects trying to survive and practise art at the same time.
There is no easy answer to this question as we are products of our society, shaped by shared values, public policies and peer pressure.
This is an interesting interview exploring the subject of art funding, poverty among creators and public notion on what is good art.
I just got a sudden depression/anxiety attack recently, to point it got me thinking to myself: "why am I limiting myself for family?". That very question sparks my whole identity, as a son, a brother, and the boy who dreams big, but have to keep low profile.
My question to you: what made you feel you are free from shackles of family? How, and why?
It goes without saying that relationships with our siblings can be complicated, marked by care and love as well as jealousy and competition.
So, what has been like, working alongside your older brother who is also an engineer and a successful entrepreneur?
If possible, please share how you see the pros and cons and the psychology of working (closely) with a family member.

An interesting question.
I am fortunate to have such successful older brother. He was sort of a role model when I was young and is the main reason I pursued career as a software engineer.
I would describe our personal and work relationship as caring and compassionate. I am not trying to compete with him nor I feel any kind of jealousy for his successes. Maybe it’s due to me seeing first hand how hard he worked to achieve all of it.
Maybe the biggest con I personally felt, especially in my younger days, was constant need of proving my worth at the company so that people around me don’t assume I am there just because of my last name 🙃. I still get that from time to time from some people, but I guess it just does not bother me as it did years ago.
