Be ok with failing, but not with giving up.

I am so excited to start 2020 with this amazing conversation with Kelly Cheatle, Artistic Director at Airigami! We talk about living a creative life, how we’re all connected and responsible for our contributions and what that has to do with Stone Soup and my sense of wonder was reignited by the impermanence and beauty available to us within art.

Friends in this episode we’re talking to the amazing Suzanne Piotrowski. I was so excited to speak with Suzanne ahead of our interview because I’ve been a long-time admirer of how she’s cultivated the work she does.
In this conversation, we talk about being an entrepreneur as a consultant and being a TEDx organizer. Suzanne is an expert at helping people and companies change for good. Digging deep into intention towards a solution. We talk about how to be ready for what we are not prepared to hear. The one skill as a leader you need to be tuning right now.
Suzanne shares this one line that has been really shifting for me in work and parenting too: Don’t do anything about me without me.
Keep in touch with Suzanne:

Friends, today we’re talking to Ilise Benun. She’s the founder of Marketing Mentor, a firm that specializes in helping creative professionals take their work to the next level, as well as an author, speaker, and teacher.

I’m really excited to share this one — Ilise taught us a lot in this episode. We talk about the creative life, doing creative work, and how we can position ourselves to keep doing this work without falling into the feast/famine cycle, which many of us in creative or client-based work have found ourselves in.

We talk about discovering who we are and trusting our intuition, and Ilise asks us some really powerful questions: What would be the best thing for me to take in right now? What would it look like if I were ready? Am I learning anything? Is what I’m doing reinforcing the beliefs that are holding me back? What would be beautiful in this moment?

This is a really juicy conversation — you’re going to have notes from this one.
