Design Recharge

Coming up on The Design Recharge Show

Rapid Recharge is a monthly segment (sometimes twice a month) and is where I share helpful tips for running your own business, sharing creativity exercises, plus much more. These are short segments that last anywhere from 20 min to 30 min. I also leave time at the end to answer questions from the audience.

 

More scheduling to come, thanks to the best assistant EVER Ashleigh Barkley for all the awesomeness she does in prepping the schedule and getting our guests lined up.

 

Nathalie Kalbach // Following Your Gut

Episode 280. Aired Wednesday, December 12, 2018.

Are your passion and your career aligned?
Do you ever wish your side hustle was your full-time gig?
Do you want to know how to make products?
Are you interested in teaching workshops?
Are you looking for other streams of revenue?

This week I am excited to introduce you to Nathalie Kalbach, a mixed-media artist illustrator, creator of Creative JumpStart, author, writer, and entrepreneur. Nathalie has taught workshops all over the world, and creates products for the craft industry.

I first heard of Nathalie because of a product I bought that she is the mastermind behind, called Creative JumpStart. It is a video series during the month of January where she coordinates artists, products, and a theme for the ENTIRE month. It serves as a creative inspiration and for me has showed me new artists and new processes of making art. I have purchased it every year since them and LOVED every minute of January because of it. Nathalie started off her career as a paralegal.

Yes, that’s right, you did not mis-read, yes a paralegal at a law firm. Nathalie and I will talk about why she chose that path and how she left that career, trusted her gut and pursued her passion of art. She is a successful entrepreneur because she has been able to diversify her income streams and never have to stop creating. She regularly takes on different challenges and that is just one of the things that inspires me about Nathalie.

My favorite way to build websites is with the Elegant Themes Divi theme. Talk about making custom web design easy. It is the only theme I need. Based off of a grid system and now with a visual builder, you can now customize your website super easy with this wordpress theme. Elegant themes puts out tutorials and are always updating the theme to make it more robust and easier to use. You can pay per year or do what I did and do the lifetime membership at $250 then you can put it on as many websites as you want.

Audible has changed my business and my life. I listen to more books than I physically read nowadays. I listen when I workout, when I mow and I have a long commute. I have been able to listen to books during those times and these books and this app has really helped my business grow. I have the gold membership, I get a new credit each month for less than $15. Less than the price of the book I am purchasing. I have been a member since 2010 and LOVE it.

Try Audible and get 2 free books:
