    WORK with Your Partner! (Artist couple) #71

    WORK with Your Partner! (Artist couple) #71

    To work and live with your spouse can be both the most challenging but also rewarding thing to do. We launched our first business after just knowing each other for three months. Fast forward three years and we're still at it (with a baby on the way!).


    But what's the secret? How can you work and live under the same roof (all day everyday) without driving each other insane?! What if it ends?!


    These are just a few of the frequently received questions through the years. Thus, we thought to, ones and for all, have a chat with you of how we did it (and still DO IT) every single day. And hopefully it can give you the insights of how you and your partner can do it too!

    Back from work with Hermès in Paris #70

    Back from work with Hermès in Paris #70

    In this episode it's the first time that we can openly talk about what we've been up to the last few weeks... (sorry for the temporary  absence!!). It all started this past summer when we received a very  exciting phone call... Hermès in Paris had found us online and wanted us  to come and work with them during a live event this winter to celebrate  their famous silk scarves.

    The months flew by and we've just returned from the most exciting and intense experience in our artistic career. You truly never know which photo, video or interview will be seen by whom and where it might potentially lead you. We got a "carte blanche" to embroider whatever we felt inspired to on one of their most iconic scarves: The Brides de Gala. Thus, the most important is to never give up on your dream and keep sharing!

    Tune in to listen to the full experience and what really happened,

    Clarify your priorities #69

    Clarify your priorities #69

    In this week's episode, we reflect on the impact that identifying and clarifying your priorities can have on both your life and business. About a year ago we decided to stop to live nomadic and chose one place  to settle to be able to concentrate fully on growing our art and business. It's not always fun, but it's always worth it. In hindsight we've noticed what enormous steps we've been able to achieve by simplifying our lives and concentrate on our priorities (an act which  also have big support from writers such as Mark Manson).


    More details on how we turned out passion into our life and business in  Elin's book: "When will you get a real job":  https://charlesandelin.com/real-job

    Lifestyle entrepreneurs #68

    Lifestyle entrepreneurs #68

    This episode gives you a reflective discussion on Elin's lack of productivity this past week, how recognising what kind of person you are will help you to better know when and how you work at your best, as well as whether we would've done the same thing again (jumped with our heads first without any initial clue of business), or made a more progressive transition into full-time artistry. We also touch upon how our daily lives look like and how it's all intertwined with work by design. As a lifestyle entrepreneur the goal isn't to separate life from business, but to create a business that supports and creates the business you dream of. If you're somewhere in between, not knowing whether you are ready to go for your dreams, whether you actually want to turn your hobby into your business, and if yes how to do it to suit your  personality - then this is the episode for you!

Customer Reviews

Life_of_Thread ,

Best podcast for creatives!

I've been neglecting writing this review for far too long! I've listened to every episode of this podcast and I just love it! (Thank you Charles and Elin!) They have honest, vulnerable and curiousity filled conversations with artists from many walks of life. The guests are fantastic (check out Just do it with Ian Edwards!!) It's such a happy, motivating and inspiring podcast, and even when the topic is heavy, Charles and Elin have such open conversations that they become practical and really just make you think about your position in life. They speak with you as friends and are entirely genuine. As an aspiring career embroiderer myself, I always leave feeling inspired and happy. Can't wait for more episodes :)
