Erik Michielsen: What is getting easier and what is getting harder in your life?

Cathy Erway:  It's easy, it's really easy to dive into so many projects when you're young, and just do it endlessly, tirelessly. But it's hard to say no to a lot of things too. So right now I'm finding it easier to say no, and trying to whittle it down into what's-- what I wanna focus on, what's most important. And, you know, I love doing side projects too. But, you know, you have to be a little more selective about it, so, I think I'm getting better at that.
