My name is Ksenia Poulber
I am an artist, a photographer, and entrepreneur
When I was 13 years old my mother has brought me to America with an aspiration of a better future. She believed the United States was a place of possibility for a young woman, a place where she can become financially free. I bet my mom pictured me as a CEO of a Fortune 500 company.
Instead what she got was a creative. And I say that with a note of compassion in my voice, to be in a relationship with a creative is hard, it's unpredictable.
I always knew that the only way for me to live a life I am happy with is to work for myself. Some may not see it as a big deal, but for me as a woman who grew up in a country where no-one was independent of the government, the ability to work for myself felt and still feels like a huge privilege, the one I don't take lightly.
For the past 15 years I have been teaching myself what it takes to be independent. I share what I have learned about being a creative solopreneur on my channel The Royal Antelope.
