    We love having guests...we love the rich conversation, and so do you guys. And when we asked Jena from A Spoonful of Faith one of many questions, “So tell us about your style,” her answer blew us away. “Your Style is Your Voice.” You will love hearing Jena’s story around the beginnings of her business, how she discovered her voice, and how she tries to use her platforms and work to bring beauty into the world and to bless others with positivity and goodness.

    You can find Jena on Instagram @aspoonfuloffaith and her website https://www.spoonfuloffaith.com.

    3.14 - Let's Talk About The Midlife Crisis Of A Creative Business

    It happens. You’ve gotten older. You’ve gotten wiser. You have so much experience, and a lot of it is good. Out of nowhere, it seems just like in our lives, we face situations and feelings within our business that force us to feel like it’s just not like it used to be.

    After you have been in business for quite a while, there is simply more time for things to go wrong and to face disappointments. In the beginning, even though you may not be where you want to be yet, there is literally nowhere to go but up. Everything is fresh and new, and there is really only opportunity (or the hope of it) ahead. We talk about the mid-life crisis of a creative business and how we try to navigate it ourselves. It is normal, it is to be expected, and you most certainly can navigate through it as well.

    3.12 - The Importance Of Having Creative Mentors & Apprentices

    If the feeling of other humans helping you out sounds amazing right about now, today's podcast episode is for you. We said this recently on Instagram, "I think for us, it's probably the reason we fell into coaching other creatives outside of our own art and writing. We know what it means to be mentored well, and mentored wholly."

    And boy, do we. We mentor each other and we've had other mentors. We get coached and we coach. Today's episode is all about the beauty of being a master and apprentice wherever you are in your creative/work journey. It's so incredible to lean on community and it's so incredible to provide it. We share a little bit about our Community opening on Friday, May 14, but more than anything we talk about why you need to be coached and why you need to pour out into someone else, too. This cycle is one of the best gifts you can give yourself as a creative.

    If you want to know more about our Community opening on May 14, check it out here on our website: https://thecreativeexponent.com

    You can find us, Marian and Shaunna, at www.thecreativeexponent.com where we continue our passionate conversation around all things creative.

All the stars!

Oh my, I was blown away by my first listen! I feel energized, inspired, hopeful, and a bit more confident in my own dabblings after listening to these ladies and their guest ( Emily Lex). I’ve follow Miss Mustard Seed and Emily on Instagram but to hear them was the full experience. Five stars for me, and one wish...a list of your favorite creative contraptions, P& TY!
