So come and join us as we help you filter through the crap to help you totally rock your product based business! After all, creativity is the ultimate rebellion!

Episode 79 - Planning a Product with Kristin Wilson Part 1

In this episode, we chat with our dear friend Kristin Wilson of Society for Creative Founders. Kristin is helping us talk about how to plan a product launch. We talk about determining who you are launching to and how to look at your calendar when you start planning. Be sure to listen in next week for part 2! About Kristin: Hi! I’m Kristin Wilson, the owner of the Society for Creative Founders.  I began with a career in education, starting a wedding business on the side in 2010.  A month after my daughter was born in 2012, I took my business full-time so that I could be at home raising her while building a business I absolutely loved. However, while I loved what I was doing, it was lonely. Going from being surrounded by people to suddenly being all by yourself was hard, and it was frustrating trying to learn through a lot of googling as I learned to learn the things I knew I needed to, in order to grow my business well.  One evening, when one of those fateful Google searches landed me upon the Society for Creative Founders website (which at the time was known as Stationery Academy), I knew that this was different. Everything changed for me when I took the leap and first walked into the Conference in 2015.  I found myself surrounded by like-minded creatives who were all encouraging, inspiring, and most of all, a community of women where I felt like I was home. Since attending the Conference, the majority of my custom wedding stationery business which I still run separately from SCF has been molded by what is taught and what I have learned through the Society for Creative Founders, and I fully believe that what we teach here can help you wherever you are in your journey.

Hey rebels! Having patience in business is really hard.  We see everyone crushing their goals and we wonder why we aren’t growing faster.  What’s wrong with us?  Why aren’t we rolling in the cash?  Why can’t I flit off to a deserted island and work on my laptop whilst being served drinks by a hunky cabana boy? Um…  because that takes work and a LOT of patience, perseverance, and grit.  You CAN get there, but it’s not going to happen overnight and that my rebel friends is REALITY!  We are all about big dreams and bigger than life goals, however patience is the key.  People and businesses who you think are overnight successes have been working REALLY HARD behind the scenes making it happen.   In order to get where you want to go you have to have a mindset shift.  You need patience, determination and the mental capacity to project your business into the future by focusing on the long game.  Not really sure what that is?  Well, tune in and find out!

Episode 44 - Productivity in Your Biz with Tonya Dalton

Hey Rebels!  Today we chat with Tonya Dalton.  Tonya Dalton is a productivity expert who started her first business in 2009 working out of her dining room juggling two small kids. By 2011, she had grown the business to the point where her husband could leave corporate America and come work with her. By combining her entrepreneurial spirit with his MBA and marketing experience, they were able to grow a small niche business quickly into something that could support their family. The company continued to flourish, but something was missing. In the summer of 2014 she closed up shop to follow her true passion of starting inkWELL Press - a company centered around productivity tools and training. inkWELL Press launched in November of 2014 and has been able to rapidly grow its online presence and expand into a national retail partnership thanks to a commitment to quality, focused marketing efforts and fiercely loyal fans. Recently Tonya launched her podcast, Productivity Paradox, which debuted at #12 in iTunes in the Business category and surpassed 100,000 downloads in the first few months. Tonya believes that too many women feel overwhelmed with all that they have to do each day, and many times their own dreams get pushed aside - she helps women use productivity to pursue their big goals and end each day feeling satisfied and successful. Quote Love From Tonya: “Educating people really refills me” “You either jump off a cliff or stand there and look”   Where to find Tonya: Website | Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | Podcast Follow us on instagram (@creativebizrebellion) and use hashtag #creativebizrebellion for a shop shout out!!!
