    Creativity and Career Secrets from a Thriving Artist - with Lori Siebert

    A creative, authentic life doesn’t just happen—it’s the product of showing up, creating little “assignments," and letting the art of your heart bubble over into your life. My guest today is a master of that, and she’s sharing all of her secrets! Lori Siebert is a self-proclaimed artistic chameleon—she’s a visual artist who experiments with many styles and mediums, and she also owns Olika Studios, a design firm who has had influential clients such as Target, Bath & Body Works, Nickelodeon and Universal Studios. Outside of that, she has licensed her art to top manufacturers in the gift and home decor industry, and she’s a living example of what it means to keep pivoting to become a thriving artist.

    Let’s jump right into the HOW:  How do you create change in your life? How do you decide what to change?

I have had a lot of practice with transformation over the years, going from an actress and singer to a theatre producer and coach.

    Questions:
    You must listen in to uncover your passions and purpose. Here are some questions from the episode that will prompt you to awaken your authentic self:
    To figure out what you want, ask yourself: What do you want?  Do you even know? Why do you want to change? What are your priorities? What are you passionate about?  What lights you up and feels effortless? As a small child, how did you spend your playtime? What are the things you were naturally drawn toward and got your attention?
    To determine your goals, ask yourself: What’s in your ideal life?  What nature are you surrounded with? What fills your time? Who are the people around you? What are you spending your time doing?  What is your house like? What is your ideal day? What are you doing?  How are you serving or interacting with others?  What is around you? Who is around you?

Hope

She made It is a podcast of inspirational stories of women’s journeys and how they got from A to B. This includes what motivated them, inspired them, and even what failures they had along the way. I have to say, though, that I absolutely loved episode 25. Elle encourages us to take heart and think about some things differently during this time of pandemic and quarantine so that at the end we can say, “I Made It” with a smile. Thanks, Elle!
