Summertime Quickie - It Doesn't Have to Make Sense

This week's episode of Raise Your Hand Say Yes addresses the question of what to do when a creative idea "doesn't make sense." 

Newsflash: Ideas don't have to make sense to the world. They only need to make sense to you.

Trust what you know, what you see, and how you want to put things together in your life. Even if – especially if – you’re doing something that no one has thought of before.

Congratulations, you’re an innovator. Get to work, you! The world needs it.

Summertime Quickie - White Space

92 summertime quickie.png

This week kicks off the RYHSY Summertime Quickie series! 

You know the importance of white space on the page or in a room, but how much white space do you have in your life?

If you feel like you’re always 5 steps behind and are constantly running to catch up, this episode is for you! 

Want the cliff notes? Get started with these steps:

  • What can you get rid of now? Quick: think of three things that you do regularly that drive you crazy…what do you need to do today to get them out of your life? (Choose a strategy: delegate, eliminate, or change)
  • Learn to say no. Remember that by saying no to one thing, you are saying yes to another: yourself. Give yourself the time and space to focus on what’s most important to you
  • What makes you feel alive? If you’re life is filled to the brim with the good, there’s no room for the AWESOME to come in. Make some space, see what happens.

Enjoy!

Erin Cassidy on Evolution

I'm so excited for this week's episode of Raise Your Hand Say Yes for so many reasons!

  1. Erin Cassidy is back on the show talking about creative evolution!
  2. It coincides with my new website!
  3. Brandcrush is live in the world and is open for registration!

In this week's episode, Erin and I talk about the evolution of her business, and how she transitioned from day job dreamer to blogger to graphic designer to where she is now. We talked about the value of working hard, how to know when to pivot, the scary side of making changes and what to do with all of those pesky emotions that come along with the evolution! 

This episode is great for you if you're trying to decide to get something started or let it go. Or if you're wondering where you'll be in 5 years. The answer: who knows? (And isn't that at least a little bit exciting?)

Emilie Wapnick on Being Multi-Passionate

I was so excited this week to chat with Emilie Wapnick of Puttylike for this week's episode of Raise Your Hand Say Yes. We talked all about being what Emilie likes to call a “Multipotentialite”. Newsflash: there is nothing wrong with having a lot of passions and interests (and Emilie has created an entire business around serving a community of multi-passionate people).

We talked about how to get the right kind of support for your varied interests, and different ways to think about multi-passionatism. We also talked about incorporating your many interests into being an entrepreneur (and how sometimes it's okay not to!).

And heads up! I'm taking part in the annual Multi Passionates Must Haves bundle sale - this is a bundle of amazing products valued at $1,599 from me, Emilie, Michelle Ward, Jen Louden, Jen Lee, and so many others that is being offered for only $97 through 11:59pm PST on 5/19. You'll get my new class Branding Basics for the Highly-Creative and will learn how to talk about your creative work (and all the different aspects of it!) so that it makes sense to the rest of the world. This sale is a no-brainer, so don't miss out!

Nicole Antoinette on Making Change

I had THE BEST time interviewing Nicole Antoinette for this week's episode of Raise Your Hand Say Yes. She was an absolute open book when it came to how she's approached making big changes in her life - including her step to get sober five years ago. (Spoiler: yes, it was hard.)

If you are someone who wants to make a change in your life, but are wondering how to either get started or keep that ball moving forward, this episode will be perfect for you. We talk about what to do when things get hard, why motivation is bullshit, and how to keep going. 

PS. Don't forget - there's still time to complete the RYHSY survey. Submit your answers by Friday 5/13 to be entered into the drawing for a $100 Anthro gift card!
