Sitcoms! I grew up in a big, busy family so I need noise to focus and working from home can get too quiet. Putting a show I’ve seen a million times on in the background gives me enough stimulation to stay in my focus sweet spot. This is especially helpful when I’m working on large animated projects that involve a lot of repetitive work.
To be patient with the learning curve and rest in being a beginner for a while.
Depends on my mood. Sometimes other creative professionals (Becki & Chris, Peter McKinnon, Jesse Showalter), woodworking/renovation channels (Tyler & Todd, Jesper Makes, hannahleeduggan), planty people (benjiplant, Nick Alexander), or ridiculous comedians (Chad Chad, Kurtis Conner).
Deciding to start a business instead of following a more traditional career oath was a big challenge before I started making money. For about the first year or two I was living check-to-check from my clients while paying my bills. It taught me about my resilience and how I can live on a shoe-string budget.
Midwestern humor always gets me: watch here
🌿 the planty one. I use it in a lot of business communications. Green is my favorite color and it looks like growth and renewal. Also I’m a millennial so I use 😂 more than I should.
This course has helped me solidify marketing systems as I work with my clients. Video editing often bleeds into social media consultation and I have a lot more confidence as I make recommendations on posting schedules, content, and repurposing.
The course let me know what was out there. For example, best practices, a roadmap for how to start organically putting my work out there and grow a relationship with my audience. Also, some really cool tools
I love working with organizations full of passionate people focused on positive impact that put in the extra oomph to take projects from good to great. I like to break big projects into clear weekly goals that can be wrapped up by Friday evening and lend themselves to weekly check-in emails or meetings.
