    in the business of

    Please make the following in red clear for me.

    You're a die-hard creative person working from a home studio, swimming though life with the imaginative right side of your brain leading the way while the practical left side is unactivated. You pass your days, months, and years waiting patiently for a "lucky break." You bounce from inspiration to inspiration, passionately invested in the creative process but not in the business of being creative.

    Is "though" in the above a typo of "through"? And does the second one mean "you are passionately absorbed in the creative process in your head, but you don't get into the creative act"?

    Thank you.

    1 It should be through
    2 I think it could mean that the person creates, but is not organised about getting the creativity out into the marketplace, trusting on a lucky break instead of dealing with the business side- marketing their product, etc.
