In this episode, I’m speaking with Mari Reisberg: therapist, performer, creativity coach, and host of the Sustaining Creativity Podcast.    Mari and I talk about her journey as a very creative child, to the world of performing, and then onto her role supporting other creatives. We talk about rejection as a creative (something we all experience), creative self-care, and creating on your own terms.    Words you’ll hear…   “Affirmations lead us to goals, they lead us to the changes we want to make in our life.”   “When we give our mind space to relax, answers show up.”   “Creativity is a present moment experience.”   “I think we forget how important mindfulness is to creativity.”   About Mari   Mari Reisberg, LPC is a therapist, performer, podcast host of the Sustaining Creativity Podcast and creativity coach. She holds a BFA in Acting from the University of Hartford’s Hartt School and an MA in Somatic Counseling Psychology, Dance/Movement Therapy, from Naropa University. She currently splits time between the traditional 9-5 world as the director of utilization review and internship programming for a substance abuse treatment center, and her own Sustaining Creativity coaching business where she works 1:1 with performers and non-performers to spark, grow, sustain, share and transform creativity in their lives. She has shared her Sustaining Creativity work at conferences, Universities and in workshops across the country.   Mari believes we are all creative and life is way more fun when we can find creativity.   Links   Mari’s Facebook: facebook.com/sustainingcreativity   Mari’s Instagram: instagram.com/sustainingcreativity   Mari’s Podcast: https://sustainingcreativity.buzzsprout.com/   Amy’s episode of the Sustaining Creativity podcast: https://sustainingcreativity.buzzsprout.com/1028026/9485614-amy-eaton   Mari’s LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/marika-reisberg-b1320151   Mari’s 7 Day Creativity Challenge: https://courses.skillfulmeans.life/7-day-Awakening-Creativity   Mari's Free Creativity Guide: https://courses.skillfulmeans.life/Awakening-Creativity   Brioka: https://www.brioka.com   Brioka on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/createwithbrioka   Amy’s website: https://www.amytakespictures.com/   Amy’s Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amy.takes.pictures

In this episode I'm chatting with Becca Rich, a holistic time coach who helps busy, ambitious entrepreneurs reclaim their time and combat time scarcity.   How many times have you said or thought "there's never enough time"? I've thought it MANY times - today. While scarcity mindset in terms of money is something we hear about often, time scarcity was a brand new concept for me and one I really needed to hear.   What Becca shares in this episode is absolutely game-changing for entrepreneurs and creatives who feel like they're always struggling with time. Time is finite, but the way we view our time can make it feel like there truly is more hours in the day.   About Becca Becca Rich is a holistic time coach and consultant supporting conscious yet ambitious business owners heal time scarcity and leverage their unique way of operating, so they can unapologetically live and work their way. As an engineer turned mindfulness teacher and holistic coach, her mission is to blow up the hustling status quo and help folks discover tools and mindsets authentic to them. Becca's deeply committed to the ripple effect that happens when we begin to reclaim our time.

In this episode, I’m speaking with creative director and designer of Lemon and the Sea, Samantha Mabe.   Samantha is a web designer, podcaster, and mom - in this episode we dive deep into the idea that success looks very different to everyone, and that what you see on the outside might just not be indicative of how a business really is on the inside.    We also talk about the complexities of juggling life as entrepreneurs with young children, and how no matter what your life situation is, the concept of “balance” isn’t really about balance at all.   Things You’ll Hear...   Everybody's going to do this differently and part of being an entrepreneur  is being allowed to do that.   My version of success is really to have a business where I can work with the type of people that I love to work with   We have realized that that million dollar business isn't what everybody needs.   Throw out all the things you've been told you should do and figure out a way that works for you and your life.   About Samantha   Samantha Mabe, creative director and designer of Lemon and the Sea, empowers service-based business owners with a custom website that reflects the price increase they deserve. She loves creating websites with beauty and brains that are designed to convert and give you the power to make edits yourself. She currently lives in Richmond, VA with her husband and one talkative toddler.   Links   Samantha on the web: https://www.lemonandthesea.com/   Samantha on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lemonandthesea/   Samantha on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lemonandthesea   Amy on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amy.takes.pictures   Amy Takes Pictures: https://www.amytakespictures.com   Brioka on Instagram: https://www.instgram.com/createwithbrioka   Brioka on the web: https://www.brioka.com   Music Credit: Happy Life by FREDJI https://soundcloud.com/fredjimusic https://www.facebook.com/fredjimusic/ Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/u4PI5p5bI9k

In this episode of Bold Company, I’m chatting with artist, online educator, and fellow podcaster, Julieanne Steedman.   Julieanne shares the story of her journey from burnt out school teacher to successful creative entrepreneur, how doubt about her talent as an artist prevented her from moving into a creative career earlier, and how the idea of success has changed for her over time.   Julieanne’s story is so special in that it is SO relatable, but also so inspiring for others to hear what’s possible for them and their creative business too.   Things you’ll hear...   “The storytelling behind your work and creating a connection with your audience is key”   “There’s a lot more opportunity now for people as artists and handmakers to actually do this as a job”   “Success to me is doing something that you feel really good about.”   “I get to teach and mentor other makers, and that just makes me feel so so good.”   About Julieanne   Julieanne Steedman is an artist, online educator, podcaster, and champion for her handmade community. She believes in the power of community, that spending time in nature often gives you the answers you need, and that there is no such thing as too much coffee.

In this episode, I’m welcoming artist, designer, and podcaster Duane Jones to Bold Company. Duane and I talk about some of the very real struggles of running a creative business, include what it’s like when you just can’t find the motivation to create, pricing yourself in a way that honours your time, talent, and work, when it’s actually okay to work without pay, how difficult it can be to outsource (but how great it can be as well), and more. Get ready for a very real peek behind the curtain of creative business and enjoy my conversation with Duane. About Duane Duane is a Bermuda born multi-disciplinary artist currently based in Kjipuktuk. His work blurs the lines between commercial and fine art – jumping between paintings, drawings and digital tools. Duane holds an Associates Degree in Art and Design from Bermuda College, a Communication Design (Honours) degree from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University and a Master’s Degree in Information Management from Dalhousie University. Duane’s work challenges commonly held beliefs around race, culture, gender and sexual orientation. Recently, Duane’s explored his Bermudian roots in the form of paintings and apparel designs that reference Bermuda’s landscape and slavery abolitionist, Mary Prince. Duane is most known as the founder of Art Pays Me, a lifestyle brand rooted in the belief that artists can achieve the dream of financial and creative independence. Art Pays Me was nominated for Most Innovative Business of the Year by The Halifax Chamber of Commerce in 2021.

We discuss the ins and outs of being a creative boss, how to avoid burnout, and how to embrace the seasonal and cyclical nature of our business.

In this episode of Bold Company, I’m chatting with photographer and self-portrait artist, Michelle England.   Michelle first picked up a camera as a way to document her children throughout their formative years, and evolved her craft into a creative business where she captures artistic documentary style portraits for women, families, and couples.   As a working photographer, Michelle acknowledges the pressure to always be sharing content, feeling the need to prove your worth and talent, and how being creative and running a business often don’t go hand in hand. But, Michelle has remained steadfast in her resolve to always prioritize her creative vision and artistic self-care. And it’s truly inspiring.   In one of my favourite interviews to date, Michelle shares honest truths about creativity and business, artistic self-care, and integrity as an artist. This conversation will inspire creatives across all genres to honour their artistic vision, tune into what feels right and good to them as artists, and to seek out that elusive balance between creative and business.   🔗 LINKS 🔗   Michelle’s Website   Michelle’s Instagram   Amy’s website   Amy on Instagram Music Credit: Happy Life by FREDJI https://soundcloud.com/fredjimusic https://www.facebook.com/fredjimusic/ Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/u4PI5p5bI9k

With no savings, no prospects, and no activity in my business for months, I took a major risk - and it paid off BIG TIME.

And, I’m sharing some of my best advice for how you can leave your day job too.

In this week’s episode of Bold Company I’m sitting down with Brodie and Michelle, the women behind Canadian slow fashion brand, Blondie Apparel. Brodie and Michelle, with a background as small fashion retailer and fashion designer respectively, founded their company through a love of simple, uncomplicated fashion, small business, and supporting local. As they outgrew their capacity to keep up with demand, they faced the challenge of outsourcing their manufacturing - a daunting task for them, who were firm on their commitment to remain 100% Canadian and wanted to maintain a connection to those who would go on to make the clothes for their cherished customers. Listen in to hear how they evolved from handmaking all of their clothes, to finding the right manufacturers (after some missteps) to bring their pieces to life - all while navigating business partnership, a pandemic, and a fabric scarcity. 🔗 LINKS 🔗 Blondie Apparel Blondie on Instagram Amy’s website Amy on Instagram

Sarah and her husband Kenny made some huge, bold changes in their life when they realised they wanted something different. They wanted to work together, spend more time outside, and get out of the rat race. So, they uprooted their lives in Ontario and move four provinces over to Nova Scotia, starting a brand new adventure as flower farmers. Sarah tells the story of their journey, how their family and friends felt about their bold move, their early challenges, how they continue to grow and develop as entrepreneurs, and how they’ve risen to local fame as the most sought-after florists in the area. 🔗 LINKS 🔗 Sarah on Instagram (@twobirdsonestonefarm) Two Birds One Stone Farm website Amy on Instagram Amy's website   Music credit: Happy Life by FREDJI https://soundcloud.com/fredjimusic https://www.facebook.com/fredjimusic/ Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/u4PI5p5bI9k

Last summer, I hit a breaking point. I had stifled my creativity out of fear for so long that I firmly believe I was "not a creative person". Until it began bubbling up out of me in the most unexpected of ways - anxiety, mood swings, tears randomly bursting out of my face at the oddest of times. I couldn't keep it locked away any more. At the time, I didn't even know what "it" was - only that I was really struggling. I was disconnected, lost, unsure of where to go with my business and how to "fix" whatever it was that felt broken inside me. One conversation changed everything for me, and in this episode I share what was said that made me really evaluate my beliefs that I "wasn't creative", and how that began a beautiful, painful, and transformative quest to finding myself and my voice as a creative.

It’s the season finale of Bold Company, and in this episode I’m sharing my own transformation with all you bold listeners. As a photographer, I’m embarking on a personal journey to unblock my creativity, which has been buried deep for a long time. I’m also making some major shifts in the way I do business. I’m moving away from the status quo of online marketing (the “sales funnel”, ie, more people = more money), and focusing on creating a new business model that is based on community and genuinely connecting with people. Listen now to hear just how I plan to make the shift, and how each guest from this season helped inspire me to make this bold move in my own business. 👇 LINKS 👇 Keep in touch on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/amy.takes.pictures Check out my website: http://www.amytakespictures.com/

In this episode, I'm talking with Zach Spuckler who career has been characterized by "zigging when everyone else is zagging". Zach's success has been built on bold moves - like walking away from his 7-figure business as a course creator to start a new endeavour as a Facebook ads agency. At a time when all the experts were pushing a "one-to-many" approach to business, Zach flipped his business to a one-to-one service-based model, because that's the way he wanted to work with people. Zach's story is one of trusting in yourself, your instincts, and not following the money, but knowing that the money will follow you. 👇 LINKS 👇 Zach on the internet: http://www.heartsoulhustle.com/ Zach's podcast: http://www.heartsoulhustle.com/blogs My episode on Zach's podcast: http://www.heartsoulhustle.com/blogs/hsh-118-how-to-crush-5-day-challenges-with-amy-eaton Zach on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/heartsoulhustle/ Zach on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/heartsoulhustle

In episode eight of Bold Company, I’m speaking with my friend Mai-Kee Tsang. Mai-Kee’s road to entrepreneurship was paved with tremendous challenge. Everything, from her upbringing as a “good little Asian” girl to a horrendously abusive relationship as a young adult, Mai-Kee was essentially trained to be obedient, and live a safe, conventional life. But her brave, warrior-woman spirit fought hard to change her story, and she has. Mai-Kee’s story is one of vulnerability, honesty, and overcoming significant adversity to live the life she was called for, and deserves. This interview is an absolute must-listen for anyone trying to grow a business and live a better life.  A special thank you to Mai-Kee for her brave vulnerability when speaking with me on Bold Company. Her story will no doubt inspire so many others on their own difficult paths to a better life.  👇 LINKS 👇 Mai-Kee's Website: www.maikeetsang.com The Quiet Rebels podcast My episode on The Quiet Rebels podcast   Mai-Kee on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/maikeetsang/ 👇 LET’S CONNECT! 👇 Amy on Facebook Amy on Instagram Amy on the Internet Amy on E-mail Musical credit: Happy Life by FREDJI https://soundcloud.com/fredjimusic https://www.facebook.com/fredjimusic/ Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/u4PI5p5bI9k

Kenney recognized a lack of representation for music artists in the LGBTQ+ community and made it his mission to showcase the wide variety of talent in the queer community, through his podcast, music charts, playlists, YouTube channel, and more. Kenney has provided a platform for queer music artists to be heard, seen, and loved by music fans across the globe, and his project continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts." That quote by Winston Churchill basically sums up my entire conversation with my friend, Jackie Muscat. Jackie is a Facebook ads manager and marketing genius based in the UK. We have known each other for nearly 3 years, through online entrepreneur circles, and let me tell you... She's the kind of woman you want in your corner. Jackie has a brilliant mind when it comes to business, and because of that (and her charming accent), I knew I had to share her with you. In this episode we talk about the role of intuition in your business, being brave, what success really looks like, and ponder whether or not failure is even real. It's another long one, but worthy of every single minute. Enjoy! Note, this episode is rated explicit due to the use of the "F" word in reference to the name of business blog I was once featured on.
