Today, we’ve got the last episode in a three-part series with designer, writer, and educator Anne Ditmeyer. If you haven’t listened to the last two week’s worth of episodes, please do before wrapping up the series with this episode.

In the interview, Anne and I talk about the magic of using online tools to make offline connections and how that’s been showing up in her work lately. She share’s the truth behind what we all see online these days, why she thinks work should be much more playful than it is now, and some of the best ways she’s been able to build relationships that cross the online/offline barrier.

Enjoy!

Today, I’m back with the second in a three-part series with designer, writer, and educator Anne Ditmeyer. If you haven’t listened to last week’s episode, please do that first! 

In today’s episode, I’m chatting with Anne all about the ebbs and flows that come with working for yourself. She goes into how she handles the emotional roller coaster that can come from having too little or, in her case, too much work coming her way. She also offers advice on how to present your work if you tend to do many different types of things and why she doesn’t think she’d be very good at (or happy with) having a full-time job.

Enjoy!

Today's show is the first in a new three-part series with designer, writer, and educator Anne Ditmeyer. In 2013 I interviewed Anne for Creating Your Own Path before it was a podcast.

In the episode, I’m talking with Anne about how she has been able to successfully build a creatively fulfilling business across many different mediums and platforms. She chats about how living in France, and the constraints it put on her work situation, ultimately made her more creative, how she decides what platforms to use to showcase and provide access to her work, and why she’s never wanted to blog for a living — even though her blog is well-known and established.

Enjoy!

CYOP #87 - Trying New Things + Overcoming Fears with Children's Artist Mishell Leong

CYOP #87 - Children's Artist Mishell Leong // creatingyourownpath.com

On today’s show I’m talking with Mishell Leong, a children’s artist located in Singapore. She started her professional career as an accountant, spent some time in the restaurant industry, traveled a bit, overcame physical ailments and started a family before coming to the realization that she could actually paint!

In the interview we talk a lot about how Mishell worked through internal and external resistance as she embarked on her journey to becoming an artist. She also talks through the research she did as she was refining her style as an artist, why her years as an accountant have made her a better business person and why she remains open to career shifts as she continues on her current path.

Enjoy!

CYOP #13 - Conquering Fear + Working Through a Setback with Gina Begin of the Outdoor Women's Alliance

Gina Begin // Writer, Photojournalist + Founder of Outdoor Women's Alliance

When I first heard about Outdoor Women's Alliance (OWA), I thought to myself, "Yes! This is something that needs to be out there in the world." And then when I met (online) the gal behind the movement I said out loud, "Dang, she's amazing."

And she is.

Gina Begin is a freelance writer, photojournalist, explorer, dedicated adventurer and the founder of OWA. She called into the show recently to give us the scoop on everything she's been tackling, both personally and professionally.

She is full of great advice—this I know for certain—but I double dog dare you not to be completely inspired to follow your dreams after listening to this episode.

She's the real deal, my friends. Enjoy!
