010 - The Paradox of Independence Making It in Asheville

    • Places & Travel

Does starting your own business mean you're more or less independent?


In our tenth podcast episode, we take a break from interviewing Asheville locals and share a conversation around the theme of independence while owning a business.


In this episode, you’ll:



Discover what we mean by the “independence paradox”
Hear some of our thoughts (and fears!) around being an independent business owner versus working for someone else
Learn about some of the systems we use to keep ourselves on track and keep our fears out of the driver’s seat
Listen to our vision for Independence Day 2020


Two months before recording this podcast, we started a marketing agency called Making It Creative. Although we feel more "independent" working for ourselves, we're also feeling a surprising amount of dependency on the work we do and the service we provide to others. This is what we're calling "The Independence Paradox."


Curious to learn more about what we do? Making It Creative is a boutique marketing agency in Asheville. We are dedicated to working with small business owners that are deeply passionate about what they do by helping them build and improve their sales and communication strategies. Learn more here.
