    Art as a Business and a Lifestyle

    Art as a Business and a Lifestyle

    Today we welcome founder and CEO of All She Makes, Svitlana Martynjuk, to talk about her passion to connect women artists all over the world. Svitlana developed All She Makes to promote women in art & business and we hear about her journey to help other women artists. You’ll hear about the history of women in the arts and the many ways she’s helped support current women artists to help them make a career out of their craft.
     
    In This Episode:
    [01:16] Svitlana’s background in art and developing her All She Makes [03:14] Statistics of women in the arts [05:14] Her inspiration to start All She Makes [06:39] Gender disparity in the Arts [10:26] This history of women in the arts [15:33] Svitlana’s art story and journey [18:52] Changing the narrative on being able to make your art a career not just a hobby [23:03] Existing opportunities for women artists  
    Key Takeaways:
    Throughout history, women were not allowed to show their art and this made a gender disparity for women who want to make art their career. Svitlana’s passion for getting women’s art displayed has helped women be able to profit off of their art pieces. As an artist, starting with your local grassroots community can be key to building your business. A community loves to support locally and this can be a great stepping stone for your art business.  Svitlana wanted to build a community where women artists could feel a sense of positivity and be able to relate to others. Her goal was to help these artists know they had others to turn to in similar situations to lift them up about anything in the art and business world.   
    Bio:
    Svitlana was born and raised in the beautiful western capital region of Rivne, Ukraine. She is an artist, founder, and CEO of all SHE makes - an online directory increasing visibility for women artists worldwide. 
    Svitlana moved to the United States where she completed her education in Fine Art, Psychology, and Strategic Management. Inspired by the human mind and with a fascination for nature, Svitlana is a traveler at heart and appreciates experience through interaction and exploring the complexities of diversity in people. Currently works and resides in Michigan, USA.

    Unraveling Your Subconscious Thinking

    Unraveling Your Subconscious Thinking

    Dr. Ginger Campbell talks about her journey with passion for neuroscience, her own podcast, Brain Science, and her book, “Are You Sure? The Unconscious Origins of Certainty,” in hopes to share her knowledge with others. Listen to Dr. Campbell and expand your knowledge of the human's subconscious mind, the decision making process, and our emotional effect on memories as time goes on. 
    In This Episode:
    [02:18] Dr. Campbell talks about beginning her podcast, Brain Science, in 2006. [06:53] Dr. Campbell’s spiritual journey and expertise in the neuroscience field. [10:44] All about her book and what she hopes to share with people. [13:01] Describing the “Feeling of Knowing”. [17:12] Individual personalities and the effects it has on their decision making processes. [20:07] Dr. Campbell describes cognitive dissonance. [27:17] Traci and Dr. Campbell speak about the process of rationalization and how it affects those dealing with addiction. [32:42] Memory recall and how it keeps changing over time. [36:51] The concept of ‘Flashbulb Memory’ and the role of our emotions. [42:54] The ‘Three Day Rule’ and following our intuition.  
    Key Takeaways:
     
    On her own spiritual journey, Dr. Campbell became interested in studying the unconscious mind while reading eastern and western medicine. She became fascinated by the way that science actually starts off as philosophy and turns into science and the idea of consciousness and unconsciousness to study the power of the mind became her main focus of study and research.  Dr. Campbell feels strongly about educating people on the way that the brain works. The key thing she wants people to understand is knowing the way the brain works so we understand our own behavior and others behavior. It’s also important to understand that most of what our brain does is unconscious and that’s why we can do things without really thinking about them.  Memory is dynamic and it can be easy to create false memories in our minds by hearing things from other people and soon enough your memories and theirs can be mixed together.    
    Bio:
    Dr. Ginger Campbell is best known for her highly respected podcast Brain Science, which launched back in 2006. She has a passion for making complex ideas accessible and helping scientists share their work with non-scientists. Dr. Campbell is also the author of "Are You Sure? The Unconscious Origins of Certainty." She lives in Birmingham, AL where she cares for veterans at the Birmingham VA Medical Center.

Love Traci & Russ!

The hosts are class acts and so much fun!

After being interviewed on about 60 interviews now, I can really tell when hosts are talented at bringing out a great conversation that ties in from start to finish with a theme and actionable takeaways.
