Today’s chat with Pragya was just so inspiring. She is an academic, a writer, an artist, a mother and a feminist, and has just been named as 1 of 100 women in social enterprise.
Today’s guest is the brilliant Jen Carrington, who has taught me so much about doing work that truly fits around me. This interview is full of so much goodness! We spoke a lot about writing and developing a strong voice across a “content ecosystem”, finding your “secret weapon” content, being creative outside of our work, starting a business young, and the mindset work that has led Jen to where she is now.
I’ve never had any formal business training, in fact my degree was Philosophy & History. I used to think it was a waste of time because it didn’t lead to a job, but now I see it as totally relevant to everything I do. Surprisingly, though, this is the first time I’m actually talking about philosophy in a blog post. Don’t worry, though, this isn’t very technical!
In this solo episode on Creatively Human, I reflect on my first year of motherhood, as my baby boy is turning one next week! I talk about how pregnancy, maternity leave and motherhood in general have impacted my business, and how we are handling things as a family.
This week’s interview is with Anna Considine and we talk about so much in this episode. I have a trigger warning, as she speaks very openly about her experience of psychosis. Plus we chat body confidence photo shoots, running a multifaceted business online and much more.
If you were to ask me about my biggest business asset, I’d tell you that it was email marketing. Not my Instagram following, not my blog, but my email list. Hands down.
