What is Your Word of the Year?
Join me today to chat about one of my favorite things to do at the start of the year...choosing a word of the year! Where could you be one year from today if you held yourself accountable to a feeling? Today I will share with you my process for not only choosing my word for the year, but how I can put small actions, habits or goals in place to support that word. To keep myself accountable in feeling into that word and embodying it in a way that keeps me on track all year long. When you choose your word for the year, don't forget to tag me so I can cheer on your progress. https://www.instagram.com/lesliekenehan/
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! Join me today to chat all about getting grounded back into our purpose and passions in 2023. When building a creative business, it's not hard to get lost in projects, growth, income goals or building that social media following. We end up saying yes to a lot, over filling our plates and we might even find ourselves completely off course for our big picture vision. Today I am offering up the idea of grounding back into our purpose and to our passion to gain clarity on what to focus on this year. Being grounded in your purpose often allows us to build our creative career with confidence, clarity, and authenticity. Giving us that much needed push toward our vision.

Whether you are a freelancer, an in-house designer, or a small business owner, when we hear the hot words, recession, inflation or even pandemic, for some of us a fear that immediately follows. What will happen to the industry I'm in, will I continue to make sales, will companies continue to buy, can I still create a salary for myself, should I stay the course or ditch and try something else altogether? During these times that we must face ourselves with honesty…it can be brave to know when to walk away. But it can also be brave to stick it out. Join me today on the Print Life Podcast as we discuss what's going on in the industry and how you can benefit from staying the course, remaining consistent and coming out the other side of whatever it is we think may be coming down the road.
