Anything is Possible - Karalee Clerk - 77

In today’s episode, I’m talking with Karalee Clerk, a woman you did all the conventional things in life, got married, had kids, and a career. Then divorced. And then she ran away from home to become a writer, and it’s because of that chutzpah that I just had to interview her, because who among us don’t secretly wish – at least some of the time – that we could just up stakes and run away with the circus, right? https://karaleeofnofixedaddress.com/

Harpers, Solnit & Inspiration ~ Elizabeth Johnston 74

Today's episode is the Facebook live broadcast for Fuel Fridays in my FB group. To join our writers' group, go to bit.ly/oycgroup. One of my sources for creative inspiration are the magazines, Harper's and The New Yorker. They inspire me to create but they also fill up my creativity tank. I get ideas for my writing but also see things in a new way. I see potential in the crazy connections I make in my head because I see how other writers follow down those leads and create wonderful, inspiring pieces out of them, and one of my favourite non-fiction writers is Rebecca Solnit. Listen to the full episode now.

Reinventing the Entrepreneurial You with Dorie Clark 79

In today's episode, I talk to Dorie Clark, author of "Reinventing You" (Harvard Business Review Press, 2013) and "Stand Out," which was named the #1 Leadership Book of 2015 by Inc. magazine. A former presidential campaign spokeswoman, she is a frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review, Forbes, and Entrepreneur, and the World Economic Forum blog. Recognized as a "branding expert" by the Associated Press, Fortune, and Inc. magazine, Clark is a marketing strategy consultant and speaker for clients including Google, Microsoft, Yale University, Fidelity, and the World Bank.  Key takeaways for writers: When people ask you what's new, be ready to update them about the milestones in your life, because it's the only way you'll be top of mind for possible networking connections. If you have people around you who take art seriously, it helps you take it more seriously. Listen to full interview for more from Dorie about the importance of continually reinventing yourself.
