282 Healing from Surgery + How I Won’t Be Doing Business the Same
No one wants it to take an overnight hospital stay to be the wake-up call for you to learn an important lesson. But so be it. This is my personal story that doesn't veer far from my professional life. For too long I let fear and anxiety influence the way I chose to grow my Creative Business, and this is where it's time to make a new choice. The person who went into the hospital is not the same person who came out, and how I was running it will no longer be the way I will be running it going forward. In today's episode, I share with you how this health challenge inspired me to dive into my fear versus resisting it, and what has happened since.

280 But, Can You Make 💰 With Your Passion?
Stunned that we're still having this conversation and throwing cautionary tales out to people who may just be getting up the courage to pursue their passion as a business, I open this episode with a response to a conversation I heard with 2 well-respected Women leaders, just moments before I went LIVE for Creative Business Coaching over Coffee last week And then one of our founding Expansive Artists members, Quilting Artist + Teacher Laura came on to get coaching help with her recent “failures”.

273 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. Join the waitlist to know as soon as they re-open.

269 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… You can find all things Marisa and Creative Thursday creativethursday.com and on instagram and facebook @creativethursday

267 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.
