I just couldn’t help myself.
I just had to bring my Grown Up Gigs interview series to the podcast airwaves, and the first two episodes are available to listen to on iTunes right now!
It’s my 5th Entrepreneuriversary today, and it’s such a big way for me to celebrate.
The first episode features a talk with my husband, who is celebrating his 2nd freelance anniversary (no, he does not wanna say “freelanceiversary”) this month. I wanted to shine a light on what it’s like to be a dual-entrepreneurial household, and how we make it work while, um, paying a mortgage in Brooklyn and making sure our child is fed and clothed.
You’ll also hear some background on me and why this series is so near and dear to my heart. It’ll feature a new segment called, “THAT’S a Career?”, where I showcase some “crazy” business ideas that grown-ups do for work.
The second episode features my former client and current dear friend and collaborator, Tiffany Han. She’s a business coach for highly-creative women, but it’s been lots of twists and turns for her to get to where she’s at. We talk each other’s face off about it. We have no faces left, you guys.
But for serious, tune in to hear about Tiffany’s story as an engineer-major-turned-psych-major-toward-non-profit-worker-turned-artist-and-studio-co-founder-turned-business-coach. She personifies how no career is ever linear, and how *all* of your experience (personal *and* professional) + passions + education + personality traits can lead to – and equal! – your dream career.
We also spill the beans on our upcoming collaboration (open now for applications!), It’s Business Time, so make sure to listen to the end to get all the deets of what it is, why it’s amazeballs, and how it came to be. It’s the best, you guys.
