Though her sense of humor leans on sarcasm, Amber's love of the outdoors and helping adventurous creatives achieve their goals is purely genuine. In this episode, we talk about Subpar Parks, Amber's relationship with the outdoors as it blends with creativity, her path to becoming self-employed, and more.Amber's bio says it best: Amber Share is an outdoorsy lettering artist with an affinity for colorful and punny illustrations. Her work is inspired by her interests — hiking, climbing, gardening, brewing kombucha, and, as a major introvert, spending time recharging at home. She strives to translate the joy of adventure into funny, light-hearted designs that spark conversation and help people connect.Featured in this episode: Amber ShareHosted & Produced by Gale StraubA production of Ravel MediaSponsored by
