Humble, helpful, and full of heart

I first learned about this podcast from Sarah’s Instagram page, and I was intrigued. I’ve never really gotten in to podcasts before, but thought I would give it a try. I have to admit, I’ve been converted! I’ve listened to all the episodes so far and have learned so much! Hearing each of them recount their stories about how they transitioned to working full time as artists is so motivating for me as I try to do the same. And I love that each of them is so humble in talking about their experiences. Through their own missteps and frustrations, which they so generously share with listeners, they exude this quiet confidence that I find so refreshing! We need more of that among creative women! I pick up something helpful in every episode that guides me on my own path to pursue my creative practice. It’s wonderful that these three women are giving back in such a meaningful way. It matters!
