Building in Bronze is an inspirational manifesto written by a woman who has never stopped dreaming and working to create space in the world where she could live her most authentic life. Cayla Pothan created just such a space, and in the process, discovered how to share her insights with other people who long to live with joy and purpose. After a difficult journey from a childhood of feeling trapped in a victim mindset, she emerged into a life filled with creativity and growth, eventually founding the Tootsie Gallery. Tootsie is a symbol of the dreams and creativity in the life of the child. As an artist, mentor, coach, gallery owner, and community builder, she reaches out to help others find purpose by getting in touch with the child within. Readers who may have lost sight of their own dreams, lacking purpose or creative outlets, will find inspiration to re-engage with their creative energies and the courage to chase those lovely dreams.

Side Hustling for Working Adults takes a humorous exploration of the frustrations of active duty military life. It doesn’t capture the heroism of the rare few who make it to Hollywood. It instead shares the story of the nameless, faceless masses, struggling with alcoholism, car problems, divorce, money problems, parenting, suicide, and women. The book illustrates the small ways, on the job, in which we take back time for ourselves. And finally, how our search for fulfillment, for meaning, journeys beyond the job.
For some, while still appreciating and respecting all that service has provided, the journey now points to a new chapter. Namely, a side hustle. To break one’s dependence on the day job. But even that becomes a fight. So how do we manage? Work, family, sleep, self-care. How do we make the most of what’s left? Or do we just surrender? Settle for less? Some of us have already succeeded past that. And there’s no need to struggle alone or to recreate the wheel.
