Talking publicly about money is a little bit taboo for most of us. And yet, it motivates and influences much of what we do with our lives, how we spend our time, and how we cope with feelings.

In today’s episode, designer Heather Lewenza of Closet Case Files opens up about how money and spending have shaped her life and career, and led her to the world of home sewing. From working in an auto factory to designing shopping centers to running her own business, see how Heather’s relationship with money has transformed her thinking over time.

Rank #3: Episode 6: The Opposite of Creative Block with Leah Price

Podcast cover
Read more

Many of us are familiar with writer’s block, that creative emptiness that hits you when you have all the freedom in the world and a blank page. But what about the opposite: when you face tough times and a lack of freedom, but discover in that an unstoppable will to create?

Creating something from nothing is Leah Price’s passion. After spending ten years in what she describes as almost complete isolation, caring for her two children with special needs, Leah discovered a deep and abiding creative energy in repurposing what is unloved and wasted.

Rank #5: Episode 4: It’s Worth It with Sadie Roberts of Tradlands

Podcast cover
Read more

Sadie Roberts and her partner started their label, Tradlands, without a lot of money or experience. They produce menswear-inspired shirting for women, and they believe strongly in what they make and how they serve their customers. But starting a US-made fashion label isn’t easy.

In this episode, Sadie shares how she got through some harrowing moments, why she didn’t quit, and what she’d recommend to other aspiring designers.

"I’m really comfortable saying, we had no idea what we were doing." – Sadie Roberts
