On days like this I almost feel like I’m being paid to have inspiring and interesting conversations and I really can’t complain about that. Today’s guests are two amazing women who are not only biz-besties (yes, that’s a thing, let’s just roll with it), but also successful entrepreneurs on their own. I’m super excited to be joined by Emily Thompson and Kathleen Shannon from Being Boss!
Since they have brought their individual talents to the table and started a podcast together, they have had the chance to interview some real industry giants like Brené Brown, Marie Forleo and Ramit Sethi and today they tell you what the ‘magic sauce’ behind their success is. We also have a juicy chat about the difference between ego and soul-led creativity. Not sure what I mean by that? It’ll all make sense by the end of the episode and if you suddenly get the urge to see Emily’s famously beautiful spreadsheets, I really can’t blame you!
In This Episode:
- Real authenticity vs trends
- Not backing away from difficult conversations
- The importance of discipline
- Balancing the parts you enjoy and those you don’t
- The need for inspiration
“I love trying on different trends and really being expressive in that way but at the end of the day, it has to come back to being who you are, right?” – Kathleen
“I think if we all changed our branding and messaging in line with the current trends, I don’t know about you guys, but mine would have changed about 97 times by now.” – Jess
“I know that one of the hardest parts for most creatives is simply deciding what to do next.” – Emily
“The challenge is sometimes creating something that’s going to last and knowing what your iconic piece is.” – Jess
“The creative work is sometimes the cake and then I’m craving the veggies afterwards.” – Kathleen
“When you’re having difficult conversations with your friends, sometimes there’s this idea that we can just back away from having it.” – Jess
