How do you know when you should keep going versus when it makes sense to cut your losses and try something new? It’s a difficult decision most entrepreneurs and creatives have faced along their journey and so we asked some brilliant folks from the community to share their thoughts.

This has been a recurring question on my mind over the course of the lock-down. The challenges that we faced have been tremendous and the uncertainty of the future weighs heavily. But the question of whether to give up is answered very simply. As long as we are able to provide good to our community, a safe place to refuge from the chaos of the world, and help make people’s lives just a little bit better, we will fight to survive and keep providing services to the absolute best of our ability. The feedback has been incredible! The amount of people who have come forward in appreciation of what we do and thankful for the good we’ve created in their lives has been the fire that has fueled us thus far. Read more>>

I think it was a quote from Banksy that said, “Don’t quit – learn to rest.” I resonated with that a lot. I have been out of balance a few times in my life with my passion and priorities. I would quit for a few months only to find myself right back into dancing. I had to tell myself it was ok that I loved dancing, I just needed to take a break. So if your family or finances, or whatever the reason is, – is causing you to feel unmotivated or disinterested in your art/profession, then take a break. You can focus on your self and get your shit together. Earn money to pay off your bills. Spend time with family and be there when they need you. Focus on school and graduate – etc. And when you are stable again, you can slowly get back into doing what you love. Read more>>
