THE FUTURE SELF WARRIOR
I’ve never had a guest on to talk about a memoir, but I thought Jane Pollak’s journey would be beneficial for the Creative Warrior community. Jane was a successful artist decorating eggs bought by people like Steve Jobs and featured at The White House, but ultimately she wasn’t happy. She decided that she could no longer settle for a life of not enough.
As creative professionals, we have to be proactive agents in our lives instead of victims of circumstance. If you’re feeling that you’re experiencing “too much of not enough,” you can let go of what isn’t serving you. When you know in your gut that you can’t do it anymore, it’s the beginning of living a life of enough.
Jane Pollak is an author, coach, blogger, coach, and speaker. She inspires people to create income pursuing their passions. She graduated from Mount Holyoke College with a BA in studio art and theatre and an MA in art education from Columbia University Teachers College. Her first book, Decorating Eggs: Exquisite Designs with Wax & Dye, was recently republished by Schiffer Publishing. Her second book, Soul Proprietor: 101 Lessons from a Lifestyle Entrepreneur (Crossing Press, 2001), shares what she learned as a home-based business owner who successfully turned her passion into a thriving company. When Pollak’s marriage ended in 2011, she moved back to Manhattan, where she currently resides contentedly single. She has three grown children and three grandchildren.
