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.
Episode 283. Airs Wednesday, April 24 at 2:30pm ET / 11:30am PT.
Are you Self-Taught? Aren’t we all in some areas?
Do you think you might spend too much time on Social Media, or creating posts for Social Media?
Are you a freelancer? Have you been one for over 10 years?
Is your goal to be a freelancer and want to know how Adam Grason has been able to do it for so long?
Do you have multiple streams of income? Do you know how to get started in building multiple streams?
Do your career goals line up with your passions and beliefs?
Is it important for you to do life / work on your terms?
Do you have multiple regular or retainer clients? Or are all your eggs in one basket?
Is it important for you to have time for your family but struggle to break away from work, or really take time off during holidays and vacations?
Well this week’s guest has some wisdom to share on these subjects
This week I am excited to have Adam Grason on the show. Adam is a designer, illustrator, full-time freelancer, and entrepreneur. He is self-taught and a quick-learner. He started designing and illustrating in high school and hasn’t stopped. Which is part of the life of a full-time freelancer. He has not had the smoothest road, but he hasn’t let the road win, he has continued on his journey through poverty and depression. Tune in to hear his story of hope.

My favorite way to build websites is with the Elementor Plugin that works with almost any theme. Making almost any theme invincible, this plugin has changed the way I have been able to design websites. This plugin is the elementor plugin. Seriously a game changer, I fell in love with after using it to build a site from scratch. Not only was it doing the custom css code for me it also made the speed at which I was able to finish the site 10X faster. I am now loading this plugin to all my client sites. Where other plugins fell short elementor used common sense and was so easy to understand and implement with.
I am loving the elementor plugin, total game changer. Use this affiliate link to purchase the plan right for you.

My favorite theme to use which works great with the Elementor plugin is 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:
