Transcript

Krista: Hi guys. Welcome to the DIY Rules R&R podcast, Rest and Revolution. My name is Krista Suh, I'm so excited to be here with you today. I'm here with Yumi Sakugawa.

Yumi: Hi.

Krista: For those of you who don't know me, I created the Pussyhat Project, the Evil Eye Glove, I wrote DIY Rules for a WTF World, and Yumi, tell us your good stuff.

Yumi: Sure. I am a comic book artist, an illustrator, living in Los Angeles, also with Krista, and a few of my books are, There is No Right Way to Meditate, Your Illustrated Guide to Becoming Right With The Universe, and most recently, The Little Book of Life Hacks: How to Make Your Life Happier, Healthier, and More Beautiful.

Krista: I also want to point out that, Yumi said we live together, she meant in Los Angeles. Because there's a whole separate thing where we're discussing, how are we going to create an artist commune, or create a city of our own? That's a separate thing, where we will live together one day, probably. Right now it's just in LA, and I love it. Rounding out our trio is Milck, singer-songwriter, amazing person. You can check her out at MilckMusic.com, M-I-L-C-K. Our friend Milck sang the unofficial anthem of the women's march, Quiet. She'll be joining us for future episodes. For now she is hand-selecting music for our podcast and for you guys.

Krista: Today I want to talk to you all about super powers. I think that too often we're told that we're normal when Actually we're really weird and have amazing abilities, and we lose the sight to spot them in day-to-day life. Yumi and I a few years ago went on a creative retreat, we just kind of did it on our own, to Santa Fe, and one of the questions that we posed to each other was, "What do you really do?" Earlier you heard us say, I'm the author of this, Yumi is a comic book illustrator and writer, but what is it that we really really do?

Krista: This is an exercise I learned from Danielle LaPorte's book, The Fire Starter Sessions. She was giving a talk to a whole group of writers, like a huge convention, and these writers wrote sports, and they wrote entertainment, and they wrote all sorts of things, so she was like, "Gosh, what am I going to actually say to them that they can all connect to?" She approached it by asking them, "What do you really do?" Yes, you're writers, but what is your real job? Ray Kroc, who started McDonald's, posed the same question to business school students, of "What business am I in?" This is McDonald's, so a lot of people raised their hands and said, "Food and beverage, hospitality." He said, "No, I am in real estate." Because the point of McDonald's isn't so much about food, but about access to that food, and being in the right location for people. I thought that was really fascinating.

Krista: When I thought about this question for myself I realized that yes, I'm a writer, I'm a screenwriter, but the link through everything I do is that I am a travel agent and magician. I'll talk a little bit more about why that is.
