Tips on Finding Your Artist Voice

Tips on Finding Your Artist Voice

Do you think you may have found your voice but you're just too close to the work to see it?

Or is it because you're emerging that you automatically assume you don't have a voice yet?

Could it be that your work needs a more consistent practice to fully develop into a unique + elevated offering?

Spoiler Alert: you might already have the answer on how to find your voice, but you're looking outside for reassurance and validation.

That's all fine and good as long as you also know how to trust your own intuition, and as a Coach I'll remind you to look inwards for your answer, like I did in my Creative Biz Coaching over Coffee session no. 2 with New Mexico Artist, Nara.

The doors to The Expansive Artists are re-opening for the first time this year, tomorrow Friday March 18.

The Slow Business Movement

The Slow Business Movement

What’s my love of cooking a good meal + sourcing the majority of my food locally have to do with running my business?

After spending 3 days in a Mastermind surrounded by some amazing business owners - the kind who are “crushing it” daily, growing to 6, even 7 figures within one calendar year ~ the concept of the slow food movement popped into my mind.

As they vulnerably shared their experiences of what that kind of growth really meant for them, I came away from that gathering with a whole new insight and understanding around what I want for my business and how it can support the life I want ~ not the other way around.

Recognizing my date with burnout is coming dangerously close, if I don’t make a change ~ this is the new approach to growing my business that I’m thinking about…

Would love to know what you think about this approach.

Why Not You? with Artist + Photographer Marie-Laure Delage Carlson

Why Not You? with Artist + Photographer Marie-Laure Delage Carlson
Why me? or Why not me?
Be honest, when you're thinking about your dreams, which question pops into your mind first?
Then ask yourself what example are you setting for your kids, for generations to come? Do you want them thinking the world is filled with possibilities or to not bother trying because what if it doesn't work out the way they thought?
When we give ourselves permission, the ripple effect is powerful because it gives someone else permission too.
In today's episode Marie shares her journey of embracing her artist from motherhood, building a business as an herbalist to fully leaning into the work that's been calling her since she was little.

The Art of Prioritizing

The Art of Prioritizing

Have you ever thought you were clear on your "priorities" only to realize that something else always comes first?

And is what comes first, something you want or something for someone else?

This year I was introduced to one concept that was a huge wake-up call for me in terms of getting to the bottom of what matters most to me - not anyone else.

Continuing on in our first of the year mini planning series, in today's episode I'm introducing you to a simple exercise to help you understand why you may be letting everything and everyone else be the priority ~ and how to begin staying in integrity with yourself and what you value most.
