How does one find the time and energy to embrace creativity after the bottom has dropped out of their life? Today I am excited to share a powerful interview with Shannon Connery,PhD who gets radically honest about what it means to build a life filled with intention, creativity, and happiness.
One of my favorite quotes is from Bono reflecting on the transition U2 made in their music from the 1980s to 1990s: “You have to reject one expression of the band first, before you get to the next expression. And in between you have nothing. You have to risk it all.” Today I share an extraordinarily honest interview with book coach Jennie Nash who is making a profound creative shift with her business. Her story applicable to every writer or artist who dares to create and release it to the world.
Jennie gets really honest here about the realities of running a business and taking risks. It’s often a scary place to go to as a business owner and may be even scarier to hear as a client of that business, but it’s valuable to look these realities in the face. It’s the only way to ensure that the people you do business with are aligned with your values. Jennie is a person who values honesty and integrity, and she is also deeply committed to serving her customers and clients.
Writers feel an intense pressure to jump into social media. Many are for it, many are against it, and most are stuck somewhere between the two. They ask, "Will social media actually lead to book sales?” The answer? No. But social media does so much more for writers. Today I want to discuss the benefits of social media for writers. I also invite you to join me in a weeklong training I am doing in this Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/readerconnectionproject/
Today I'm excited to share my podcast interview with illustrator and author Aura Lewis. She shares her story of making a huge career shift to focus on the arts, how she developed her first book, got a book deal, then another, and then in the last year signed deals for 6 additional books!
I'm celebrating 10 years of running my business, WeGrowMedia, full-time. In that decade, I have worked with thousands of writers and made space for creativity in my daily life. Today I want to reflect on what that decade has taught me, and how I am using that to set my goals for this year, and for the next decade.
