What Worked What Didn't 2022

What Worked What Didn't 2022

The tradition continues for the 3rd year in a row!

I'm back with my 2022 year in review.

 

At the close of each year, I share a behind-the-scenes studio wrap-up of what worked and what didn't when it came to my art practice and my creative business.

 

How did my work impact my personal life and this year especially how did my personal life impact my business?

 

One of the most challenging years filled with a new level of growing pains plus the emotional and physical pains left over from a significant amount of personal health stress ~ I share:

  • my biggest lessons I learned
  • the progress I made in spite of it all
  • what I'm choosing to leave behind
  • what I'm choosing to take with me into 2023
  • what I'm most grateful for even through the hard lessons learned

 

Ready to start fresh for 2023 and kick-off your year with clarity + focus for your Art business!

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.

Tired of Feeling Overwhelmed + Confused? Answer these 3 Questions

It's up to you to reclaim your time + peace + focus with purpose.

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.

What Worked What Didn't Work 2021

What Worked What Didn't Work 2021

It's become tradition!

A couple of years ago I started sharing a behind the scenes studio wrap up of what worked and what didn't when it came to my art practice and my creative business.

And how did it impact my personal life?

One of my best years in business thus far, a lot of progress made, and definitely more room for improvement in one area I was struggling with last year.

The question is which one will I choose to interpret my overall year?

Or rather, do you plan?

Lined or Plain paper?
