Summertime Quickie - All About Hamilton!

This week on the podcast, I'm following up on Episode 95 and sharing my Hamilton story, including what it was like to actually see the show, why I cried for hours after, and my big learning. 

You'll hear my advice to you if you're looking to make something awesome with your creative endeavor and the steps I'm taking to focus on my own (spoiler alert: I’m trying to create more time to focus on the podcast, hooray!).

And if you're missing the interviews, get excited for Season 3 which premieres next week! Listen in to the end of this week's episode for a sneak peek at who's gonna help me kick of episode 100 next week!

Summertime Quickie - The Power of Keeping Things Simple

It's easy to *understand* the need to keep things simple, but the execution of the concept is often a lot harder! Today on Raise Your Hand Say Yes I’m talking about how to *really* keep things simple and sharing a real-life example from my own biz (shoutout to Mailchimp!).

It's so easy to get caught up in the hype of new ways to do things, even if they aren’t quite right for you. And most of the time all that hype takes us away from the work we *really* want to be doing! 

So if you need confirmation that you’re allowed to keep things simple, then this episode is for you!

Summertime Quickie - On Pretend Work

This week’s episode of Raise Your Hand Say Yes is all about pretend work (AKA: the raise your hand, say yes aftermath). What happens after you get really excited about something and raise your hands and say yes, and then realize you have to do the actual work? Lots of wheel spinning, overthinking, and "pretend" work. 

Today on the podcast, I'm sharing what you can focus on instead. 

If you want to not only raise your hand and say yes, but also execute and follow through, then this episode is for you!

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!

  1. Erin Cassidy is back on the show talking about creative evolution!

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.
