    Ep 191. Quit Your Day Job with Sarah McComb-Turbitt

    This week’s episode features Missouri based muralist Samantha Cox, who just happens to be one of my best friends. Samantha’s journey is going to be very relatable to a lot of the mom listeners. She shares how she went from the stay at home mom role to boss babe business owner with a lot of tough mental shifts in between. I’ve personally gotten to witness this because I’ve coached her from day 1 until she was able to stand on her own this year. Her confidence is currently at an all time high and continuing to grow, but it started from a pretty low place. Since quitting her day job she’s happier than ever and I hope this interview gives you the inspiration you need to do the temporary hard thing to experience the good things in the long run. Let me know what you think of this week’s episode with Samantha Cox.

    188. Quit Your Day Job with Shannon Joy

    Today we have another episode of the Quit Your Day Job series where I interview members of the Artist Academy Advanced, our private group mentoring membership program geared to helping artists thrive. I’m interviewing Shannon Joy who is from where I am, Springfield, Missouri but is currently on vacation in Hawaii. She carved away some time to chat with me about her dive into full-time art. I’ve met Shannon in person many times this past year both on mural projects and off. I first had her out to help paint a project at a local park, then another for a business, then another, and each time she’s helped more and I’ve done less. Now she’s out on her own in the art world and making a living with a paint brush. Listen as we chat about everything that happened in between that helped her go from working a job she didn’t like to now into a full time creative career. Let me know what you think of this week’s episode with Shannon Joy.

Perfect inspiration

Every episode is so Inspiring. It has loads of info and best of all it showcases how different all the artists are! There is no cookie cutter.. they come from all backgrounds and experiences which make you realize that- “ I can also do this!” Of course with hard work and dedication! I’m so glad Andrea is generous enough to share all her info and set this up for us so we can learn and progress!

Finally a great business coaching program for artists!

Are you an artist? Are you an artist looking for business guidance? Are you an artist looking for great and simple business guidance to make something big of yourself? This podcast and program The Artist Academy is just what you need! 🎨 I am an artist with a business that needs guidance. I have been following Andrea for a year or so and am fortunate to have recently come across her podcast. I almost signed up with a handful of other online business coaching classes for small business’ in general. Then I found THIS podcast, an ARTIST business coaching class. THIS is exactly what I need to help me grow. I’m a caveman millennial with zero patience for technology and learning technology. So far, Andrea’s help is making this a walk in the park for me. I understand and am soaking in all of her helpful tips and guidance with ease. If you are looking to make something of yourself in the art world and need guidance, your search is over for help, listen to this podcast, and sign up with the Artist Academy! Very very thankful that I did 🙌🏼🎨👩🏻‍🎨 - Courtney Lowry

The Place be if you are an Artist

I discovered Andrea on Instagram a few months back and, since day one, have been continuously inspired by her content. She truly has figured out how to be a full time artist and shares her wisdom, knowledge and experience masterfully, comprehensively & generously with the world so aspiring artists can too. She interviews artists, like herself, that are creating art full time. She is a great interviewer with insightful questions giving the listener the opportunity to hear the details, the back story, the how and the whys of the artist’s journeys. I’m always inspired by every episode and glean some pearls of wisdom to implement into my art career. I highly recommend her podcast to any creative person in any stage of their career. Impacted by her in many ways, I have been able to achieve my greatest dream of becoming a full-time artist in Hawaii this year!
