What's the Best Environment to Spark Your Creativity with a special guest Alyssa Van Guilder

What's the Best Environment to Spark Your Creativity with a special guest Alyssa Van Guilder

Not just talking about your studio space today, or perhaps? a kitchen table studio like where I first started my Art business, but in today's episode I share a story about how I figured out what cultivated my most inspired creative times.

 

It wasn't obvious to me until recently ~ first when I founded The Expansive Artists, with an intention to cultivate and support an inspired creative community of fellow Artists growing businesses along with hosting in person creative events, like retreats and workshops ~

 

Here's the thing: the environment and community you choose to surround yourself with can make all the difference in the way you find, tap into and express your unique creative vision.

 

It's way more important than you might realize.

I invited a special guest, Floral Designer and Founder of Apotheca Flowers, Alyssa Van Guilder to join me for this conversation.

 

We're both excited to announce that our 2020 dream of hosting an in person creative + creative business event together, is finally happening this year.

My New "GameChanger" Planning Tip!

My planning practice, or rather my planning obsession, has reached a new level and I've got a brand new tip to share with you in this episode.

 

Inspired by another new love for project management - something that before my business started to grow to include a team that I had no idea "was a thing" - this planning tip is good for both using pen (preferably markers!) + paper and digital.

 

I’m also celebrating the release of the brand new 2nd edition limited edition 2023 creative planner, which is date free so you can start it or use it at any time of the year that you like.
