Austin Kleon on All Things Creative

Austin Kleon on the Raise Your Hand Say Yes podcast with Tiffany Han

This week on Raise Your Hand Say Yes, I have the good fortune of talking with the amazingly talented (and super smart!) Austin Kleon (who I've been looking forward to interviewing for AGES!). We cover all things creativity in this episode, including real estate (and what it has to do with your art!), the three things that are essential to creativity (and the one thing that isn't!), when to trust yourself versus your audience, telling your story and sharing your process, and why having a day job isn't as bad as online marketers make us think it is!

We also talk about books, I share my secret wish to write a YA novel one of these days, and I give Austin a bit of advice on how to figure out what town he should move to next! This conversation was such a treat for me, and I know you'll enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed having it!

Austin, that was about as fun as a podcast episode could get! Thank you for sharing your time with us!

Danielle Krysa on the Inner Critic

Danielle Krysa of the Jealous Curator on the Raise Your Hand Say Yes podcast with Tiffany Han

I loved hearing Danielle Krysa's keynote this summer at ALT Summit where she talked about the oh-so-loud voice of the inner-critic and I knew that she had to be on Raise Your Hand Say Yes! In case you're wondering, the conversation did not disappoint. We talked about the day Danielle's inner critic was born and how she eventually learned how to get past it.

We also talked jealousy and when it can be a good thing and what Danielle's learned about getting unstuck creatively. If you're someone who has ever been in a creative rut or wants to make great work but isn't sure how to start, this episode will be full of lightbulb moments for you! (Spoiler alert: It's all about priorities! Make some!)

Danielle, you are the sweetest AND the smartest. Thank you for bringing that winning combo to the podcast!

Emily McDowell on Standing Out

Emily McDowell on the Raise Your Hand Say Yes podcast with Tiffany Han

This week, on Raise Your Hand Say Yes, I was thrilled to talk with Emily McDowell. Not only is Emily my most favorite stationery designer EVER (and this is not an honor I bestow lightly!), she is also my friend. (Yep, I'm a lucky duck!)

On this episode, Emily talks about her balance of creative/administrative work (you're gonna be surprised!), how her 10-year career in advertising contributed to her success in the stationery industry, what to think about when it comes to branding your business, why avoiding trends is a great thing and Amy Schumer.

I'd say this episode is RYHSY gold. And I hope you love it!

Emily, you are a gem! Thank you to the moon and back!!

The CrazyFaith epsiode

Tiffany Han and Crazyfaith

And, welcome to the podcast episode where I quote myself. This week, I did something a little bit different and did a solo show. What started out as a short guide to finding your own way to Raise your hand and say yes quickly became my stance on life (enter: the Crazyfaith) and my musings on the movement I'm trying to create with my work and this show.

I'm feeling a wee bit vulnerable posting and sharing this now, but, in the spirit of leaning in to my own discomfort, here goes.

I'd love to hear what you think! I would like to do more of these solo shows (don't worry! I'm not going to give up the interviews!), so if what I had to say resonated, please let me know!

PS. As I mentioned towards the end of the episode, the Raise your Hand Say Yes book club is coming! We’re starting with The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks. Get your copy now and give it a read – the episode where we discuss it will air on March 4 and we'll also be doing a twitter chat following the episode.

PPS. The other thing that I mentioned was the Q&A episode that I'm going to be hosting with my favorite friend Michelle Ward on March 11. If you have any questions for us about life or business or passion or entrepreneurship or early motherhood or our shiny hair, send them over!

Sliding Doors - the movie (watch it! so good!)

Lisa Congdon on Creative Evolution

I interviewed my dear friend Lisa Congdon about her creative evolution and how she’s gotten to where she is now. Did you know that she didn’t start painting or making art until she was 32? We also tackle fear in this episode, so if you’ve ever had apprehension about taking on a new creative endeavor, pour yourself a glass of wine and get ready for a listen!

Erin Loechner on Saying Yes

I’m talking with the amazing Erin Loechner about how she’s raised her hand and said yes and where it’s gotten her in her life. We also tackle the subjects of faith, branding, and doing things even when they aren’t considered good for business.
