Dabbling in the creative industry as a small business owner and entrepreneur has multiple ups and downs. We hear the success stories left and right, but we rarely talk about what happened behind the scenes.
What was the bad and the ugly experiences that we encountered as a creative entrepreneur?
Why aren’t we being transparent about it and why we should talk more about it? We want our inspiring podcast to help those who are having their dark moments, for those who doubt themselves, and for those who feel like they’ve failed. We all have been there, it’s a matter of how we stay resilience and stay positive to get back up. Climb on one stone at a time if we have to, but never stop.

Episode #20: Peak Aliveness: Feel True Connection & Freedom with Val Vigoda
Val Vigoda is a transformational musician that had a very traditional and classical training until she joined the army. Her natural curiosity and love of learning, combined with a rebellious spirit, led to a highly unusual educational path: skipping three years ahead in school, she headed to Princeton at age 15, and joined Army ROTC to pay for college. The discipline she learned in the military served her very well and switched from classical to electric violin. She became world renowned violinist and performer, and now she is expanding her reach in the realms of performing, writing and speaking: writing with new collaborators, spreading her wings as a solo performer and in-demand musical keynote artist, as well as Off-Broadway actor-musician. Listen to learn more about how she broke away from her regimented rule a-biding life to gain her own fulfilling career as a transformational musician, and how she is now sharing her life’s story to inspire others.
So on point and yes, let's talk about the abs and the downs for our business for sure. Supporting each other with real conversations and truths!
