  • {Episode 43} The Honest Truth About Our Partnership

    26/04/2019 Duração: 37min

    We're taking a completely unorthodox approach in Episode 43 of the Creative Business Breakdown podcast. Instead of recording together in the same room as we usually do, we're answering some BIG questions about our partnership...separately. If you've been curious about the inner workings of our partnership, or how a business partner relationship looks in general, make sure to listen to this episode. We dive deep into the evolution of our business together, the challenges we have faced, and how we have grown both personally and professionally due to our partnership.

    Being a business owner can feel like riding a rollercoaster: sometimes you're on top of the world with your hands in the air, and other times, you're flying down a steep hill holding on for dear life. At this moment in our business, we're feeling the latter, and in this episode, we're getting real about our current challenges. We talk through how we're dealing with overwhelm, especially when it comes to our mindset. If you're going through a difficult season as a business owner, please know that you're not alone! We hope you'll find solidarity in Episode 39, and take away a few words of wisdom, since this isn't our first time on the rollercoaster(and won't be our last!).

    When the topic of "self-care" comes up, things like pedicures and bubble baths usually come to mind. And while we love those indulgences from time to time, the most effective self-care is the kind that you can incorporate into your everyday routine. In Episode 38 of the Creative Business Breakdown, we're talking about how we're practicing self-care on a regular basis in this season, and the effect that it's having on both our personal and professional lives.
