Setting goals for yourself can be motivating, inspiring and empowering, but only when done right.
We all know the feeling when we haven't hit a goal, that's why I came up with my way of setting goals. Goals that inspire me and help me achieve them in the first place. Setting goals shouldn't be a thing where it's about competing, with yourself or with others, it's about getting things done, so you're getting closer to your big picture dreams and goals.
Join me in this Episode and learn more about how I'm setting goals that are achievable.
Finding and keeping our focus is something we struggle all with from time to time. However, there are a few strategies that will help you choose a priority to bring you closer to what you desire to achieve. The secret lies in choosing just one priority, even though that's often easier said than done.
So tune in and find how I approach finding and keeping my focus.
Sometimes we just get carried away and jump into a new adventure head over heels. However in some cases - for example when it comes to starting a creative business - this approach is often a bit risky.
That's why I thought we should talk about what you need to know about your creative work before you jump into making it a creative business.
We'll talk about when you're just not ready yet and when it's time to take the leap into creative entrepreneurialism. And of course, we'll also address how you can deepen your insights even when you have already achieved some higher levels in your creative work and process.
YAY! This is the first ever interview with a creative on the show.
Join me and hear all about how Lilah up-leveled her graphic design business into a graphic design agency. How she was able to retire her husband out of a job he didn't like, because of her creative adventure. We'll chat about pricing, building a creative business around your personal life, filling your client wait list and a ton more.
Lilah is super open about her journey and how you can implement the lessons she learned in the past couple of years.
Listening to this very first Episode of the show you can expect to get to know more about the Podcast, the sparkling creative community and me, your host Kerstin Pressler. I'll be sharing about my journey in the creative field, why I decided to share my experience with you here on the show and what is coming up in the future.
Today's Episode is not only for the newbie, even though it may sound like it... this Episode is meant for every creative, wherever you may be in your career!
Our creative adventures constantly evolve, which means we need to take a step back and reflect regularly and because I know reflecting is something that comes a bit short in our normal day to day life, we're now dedicating a whole Episode to it.
We just need to have clarity, to build a creative business that serves our clients but at the same time us. So jump in and get focused with me.
What can you do in order to keep your community on your email list happy, engaged and excited to buy?
One thing is sure…not every single member of your community is going to be a paying customer, however taking good care of your subscribers increases the chance that they will buy from you in the future or recommend you to someone they know.
As with everything in this system the pure theory is really easy, however taking action on the knowledge you have gathered is the key to success.
Why you should not only use your blog in order to grow your list, but why also be on other platforms as well.
So the thing with social media, guest posting and other activities is that you use those platforms in order to reach new people. Everybody is hanging out in different places and by utilizing only one place those people would have to find your blog or website directly.
And because this scenario is a little uncommon, especially when you’re just starting out, you want to be out there as much as possible.
That way, you can create as many touch points with your audience as possible. From those touch points you can then help them find their way to your website, blog and email list.
Back in art-school I struggled a lot with the opinions of my teachers about what making art and creative living is supposed to be like.
For me creating art and experiencing art was positive, it had/has nothing to do with living in pain and punishing myself. I was striving to create beauty, but I felt as if my work could only be good if I was addressing a big topic that is important to all mankind. Or at least I would need to do something provocative (yes, I created a collage with hundreds of penises on it :)) or that I would need to create work because of my family history.
Still this perception of art and creative living is haunting me.
Sometimes we all struggle to come up with new content for our Social Media channels. We all know that we need to stay engaged with our audience, but without a clear topic in mind it is really hard to send a post out into the world.
I too struggle with it every now and then!
Therefore I want to share my strategies! How I come up with topics and how I collect topic ideas for the future!
