Lauren Hom is a designer and hand lettering artist based in Detroit (formerly New York & Los Angeles). Lauren is known for her bright color palettes and playful letterforms. She has created work for clients like Starbucks, Google, AT&T, YouTube and TIME Magazine. Her work has been recognized by Communication Arts, the Type Directors Club, and the Webby Awards.  Lauren is also the author of the popular blog and book Daily Dishonesty. She finds that she's happiest when creating; so, when she's not working, you can find her baking yummy things, selling your ex-boyfriend's tears, or putting bread on her head. In this episode, we talk about Lauren’s experience getting (and leaving) her dream job, what she took away from her time at an ad agency, how she grew her Instagram account to 250,000 followers, and why her instinct to bring play into her work has helped her find new clients and new opportunity.

Dru Riley is the creator of Trends.vc, which has more than 45,000 subscribers and 1,000 Pro members. With each Trends report, Dru focuses on one core idea or movement. He dives into the history of that idea, why it matters, who the major players in that industry are, the relevant tools and platforms, predictions, opportunities, risks, key lessons, and even some of the opposing viewpoints as to why that idea is bogus. Trends also has a Pro subscription that goes deeper into each of those areas and includes other forms of media, a community, and more. In this episode, we talk about Dru’s mini-retirement, why he decided to build Trends, how he thinks about pricing and monetization, what makes a good online community, and why Being Concise has helped along the way.

Andy J. Pizza is an illustrator.  Sometimes he uses pictures. Like in his kid’s books, comics, and client work for the likes of The New York Times, Apple, or Nickelodeon.  Sometimes he uses words. Like when he’s making his podcast Creative Pep Talk. CPT consists of monologues on building a thriving creative practice and conversations with creative powerhouses like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Abbi Jacobson, and Morgan Harper Nichols. His favorite way to illustrate ideas is with analogies and stories on stage. Andy’s style of public speaking is one part TED Talk, one part one-man show — with a sprinkle of stand-up comedy. In this episode, we talk about creative taste and intuition, watching the tape, playing your hits, creative habits, and why he’s more focused on storytelling than ever before. Andy J.

Austin Kleon is the New York Times bestselling author of a trilogy of illustrated books about creativity in the digital age: Steal Like An Artist, Show Your Work!, and Keep Going. He’s also the author of Newspaper Blackout, a collection of poems made by redacting the newspaper with a permanent marker. His books have been translated into dozens of languages and have sold over a million copies worldwide. He’s been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, PBS Newshour, and in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.  New York Magazine called his work “brilliant,” The Atlantic called him “positively one of the most interesting people on the Internet,” and The New Yorker said his poems “resurrect the newspaper when everybody else is declaring it dead.” He speaks for organizations such as Pixar, Google, SXSW, TEDx, and The Economist. In previous lives, he worked as a librarian, a web designer, and an advertising copywriter. In this episode, we talk about how Newspaper Blackout led to Steal Like An Artist, when he knows it’s time to write another book, the pros and cons of self-publishing, why Austin doesn’t believe he’s business savvy, and the role of Luck in Austin’s ability to make a living as a full-time writer.

Today is a special crossover episode. Last week, I interviewed the creator and host of The Learning Leader Show, Ryan Hawk. After a while, all podcast hosts are asked by their listeners to spend some time talking about THEIR OWN journey. But it's weird to talk about yourself, and borderline insane to interview yourself. Luckily, my recent guest (and incredible podcast host) Ryan Hawk asked if he could turn the tables and interview me for a special crossover episode of Creative Elements and the Learning Leader Show. In this episode, we talk about my “Why,” how I tapped into my creativity, my journey with podcasting, the Smart Passive Income acquisition, and why I believe Commitment is the most important creative skill today.

I’m sharing with you an episode of Freelance To Founder, another show here on the Podglomerate Network. Freelance to Founder features real-time coaching sessions with freelancers who want to scale their service business. In each episode, show co-hosts Preston Lee and Clay Mosley—who have both scaled their one-person businesses to something bigger—help guests and listeners on their journey to finally achieve “founder” status. Freelance to Founder strives to provide real-world, practical, and actionable advice to take your service-based business to the next level—with occasional surprise guest experts or deep dives on must-have skills for success. This episode I’m sharing is a coaching call with web designer Keegan Lanier of Redefined Creative.  Keegan is a side hustler who's desperate to take the leap and work on his business full-time. But he's hesitant to make such a dramatic life change when he doesn't really know where his clients come from. He gets a lot of referral business (enough to build 3-4 websites per month) but he's always nervous referrals could dry up without notice.  So Clay and Preston walk him through a few critical client-finding tactics, including how to harness the power of local clients by becoming an expert in your area—allowing you to charge more and build a predictable pipeline of new work. New episodes air each Thursday. You can subscribe to Freelance to Founder using the link in the show notes, or visit FreelanceToFounder.com.

I wanted to share a little bit of a different episode with you this week. Back in episode #49 of this show, I spoke with Corey Haines, the creator of Swipe Files. Corey and I spent the majority of that episode talking about his approach to Product Hunt, and so we didn’t dive as deeply into Swipe Files as we probably should have. But a big part of Swipe Files is Corey’s podcast, Everything Is Marketing. And in April, Corey interviewed me for that show. He caught me at a really interesting time. And Corey got me talking about a few things that I’ve never talked about on any other podcast before, including: The step by step process of developing Creative Elements My secret plans of writing a book while I'm building this podcast How I stair-stepped my way from selling services to selling digital products And the number of random, lucky breaks that I grabbed ahold of over the years We cover a lot of ground, and this really goes behind the curtain of both how I make this show and my own creative career up to this point.

In this bonus episode, I'm talking with Courtland Allen, the founder of Indie Hackers. As I’ve shared a couple times over the last few months, my accelerator and community Unreal Collective was acquired by Smart Passive Income in January of this year. I wrote an article about the acquisition, and it got quite a bit of attention. One of the places it got shared was on Indie Hackers, a massive online community of nearly 30,000 people trying to build profitable side projects. It was originally shared by Rosie Sherry, the then-community manager for Indie Hackers. And the founder of Indie Hackers, Courtland Allen, left a really thoughtful comment on the piece too. Indie Hackers itself was once acquired by Stripe, and now Courtland works for Stripe while building the community full time. So we had a lot of common ground. In this episode, Cortland and I talk about the acquisition, earning a living as a creator, why I don’t really like Clubhouse, and how to build a community online. Courtland is an incredibly smart creator himself, and I’m excited to interview HIM on Creative Elements here soon. *** LISTENER SUPPORT Join our community on Facebook Support this show through Buy Me A Coffee. *** SPONSORS Try Podia and save 15% for life as a Creative Elements listener Start your free trial of SavvyCal and get your first month free using promo code ELEMENTS *** ABOUT JAY CLOUSE Subscribe to my weekly newsletter Follow Jay Clouse on Twitter Follow Jay Clouse on Instagram Enroll in my course on podcasting, Podcast Like The Pros *** PODGLOMERATE NETWORK This show is a part of the Podglomerate network, a company that produces, distributes, and monetizes podcasts.

Last week, I was featured on the Smart Passive Income podcast. The SPI Podcast is one of the biggest shows in online business. The host, Pat Flynn, has been podcasting for nearly a decade, has published somewhere close to 2,000 episodes of his shows, and the SPI podcast has had more than 60 million downloads all time! Pat was on the show back in August of 2020 with his business partner, Matt Gartland. And the two of them spoke about the future of SPI, and how they were focused on growing the business through partnerships and acquisitions. Well, as you may or may not know, back in December 2020, SPI acquired one of my businesses – my accelerator and private community, Unreal Collective. And as a result, I now lead Community Experience for SPI. They’ve been wildly supportive and encouraging of my other projects, including my writing, this podcast, and Freelancing School. In fact, this episode with Pat on the SPI podcast is talking specifically about freelancing, and how I’m serving freelancers THROUGH Freelancing School.
