b&b 140 #DeadDayJobArmy – James Freeman on how opening a restaurant is like creating an album

Welcome to the #DeadDayJobArmy, a monthly Brunch & Budget series where entrepreneurs and freelancers of Color share their stories and talk about the real. We ask folks to leave their shiny pictures and Instagram highlights at the door and tell us what it’s really like to do the work, put in the time, and devote your life to your work.

This month – James Freeman – rapper/MC and restaurant owner in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Freeman owns Sweet Science, Featherweight, and Sally Roots—where we met him while enjoying a delicious Caribbean/Crucian meal. We talked about his favorite parts about running a business, the hardest parts, and how to keep going when life becomes overwhelming.
