Be Nice ~
Welcome to episode 6 of season 2, and 198 on the podcast~
words of wisdom from my special guest this week.
Short and sweet, I write to you today ELATED! and thrilled to share that the final episode of the Creative Thursday; Conversations with Creatives series, is LIVE.
Not without more hiccups including additional video files missing, I finally wrapped this series. Just before the clock struck midnight on Thursday, episode 6 and a new podcast were published.
1 idea + 5 years + 2 kickstarter campaigns (thank you backers!!) + 12 inspiring stories (thank you to my guests!!) + countless hours editing + lost sleep + extreme (self-imposed) stress, especially due to technical difficulties + biggest lessons learned in my creative career (& video editing) so far (podcast forthcoming) = 12 mini documentaries that I hope have brought you inspiration + the reminder of the dreams that are possible for all of us, and that the fulfillment that comes + positive impact you have when you follow your dreams is everything.
As my guest today, Karin McGaughey said when asked about her choice to pursue a freelance career as a Set Decorator in Hollywood “ I would do it all over again” ~ and so would I.
