00:0000:00

“Some people use things; they destroy. You’re a creator, a builder.”

— Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

 

We welcome back Scooter Mann, the producer of Anansi Storytime, a podcast of fairy tales and folklore told in a radio play format. We are also joined by LJ Donnell who is a writer, novelist, and voice actress on Anansi. 

We discuss the motivations and benefits behind being committed to such a time-consuming creative project that does not generate an income (yet). Money is not an issue when your creative projects pay you in personal fulfillment, joy, friendship, collaboration, team building, learning opportunities, and they often lead to career transitioning skill sets and an expanding network! 

 

Please follow Anansi Storytime on Facebook and Twitter. You will be impressed with the work that goes into this creative production. 

 

The highest prize we can receive for creative work is the joy of being creative. Creative effort spent for any other reason than the joy of being in that light filled space, love, god, whatever we want to call it, is lacking in integrity. . ."
– Marianne Williamson

 

Do you have a creative project or hobby? Does it recharge you for the reasons we mentioned?

"Never depend on a single income." --Warren Buffet

 

The Tree of 40 Fruits grows in upstate, NY and as its name suggests, it produces forty different types of fruit thanks to the painstaking care of artist Sam Van Aken!  Now, as artists and creative types, we can all be like this fruit-defying tree and produce our own fruits in the form of revenue streams--fresh, juicy, fruity revenue! 

Anyone can produce revenue fruits and enjoy the benefits such as long-term security, freedom, and additional skills sets. If you rely solely on a paycheck, your financial security is extremely vulnerable to the whims and financial health of your employer. 

You can develop additional sources of income in any number of ways. Here are some ideas to get you started. Need more help? Contact us at jellyvisionshow@gmail.com. Jelly is always happy to chat with listeners! 

Potential Revenue Fruits

  • Rent an un-used room in your house through Airbnb
  • Sign up as an affiliate with the brands/products you love and use 
  • Knock on doors and offer services such as painting, house cleaning, yard work, dog walking, errand running, organizing, etc
  • Start a side business doing something you love. 
  • Invest in real estate
  • Teach a skill that you have now, or acquire one 
  • Organize a one-day conference for people in your industry/niche  
  • Write an ebook on a niche topic 
  • Create designs for t-shirts and stickers and sell on your website
  • Sell stuff you don't need
  • You can now sell directly from your Facebook Business Page, so if you are an artist, designer, writer, crafter, or performer--get on there and start selling! What do you have to lose? 
  • Find great items at thrift stores and sell them on Instagram
  • Make something and sell it on instagram. Ten Minutes To Sell Your Art Online
  • Invest in the stock market online. You don't have to be rich, you can make small, incremental investments with low fees.

Money grows on the tree of persistence. ~ Japanese Proverb

We need to talk about persistence, and the role it plays in our personal success. How do you keep your head in the game when success is on its own unpredictable time line? We talk about all of this with musician, actor, composer, pianist, and child prodigy, Joshua Rich. Joshua has been actively pursuing his dream of being an international touring musician for years. He shares with us how that dream can take shape in many ways, and how he has to believe in the vision as well as himself more than anyone else. 

Be on your own side. --Joshua Rich

You Are A Perfect Box! Unwrapping Your Personal Brand With Sisarina: Ep. 240

00:0000:00

Truth Bomb, JellyVisionaries:

"If you don't have a personal brand within a creative business, you are screwed." --Melanie Spring 

 

Melanie Spring and Rebecca Layton Gunther help us wrap our minds around what branding is, and why we shouldn't shy away from a personal brand. Melanie is the boss lady at Sisarina, a Washington DC-based agency that specializes in branding on purpose. Rebecca is the Chief Culture Officer at Sisarina and works directly with clients to express their brand within every aspect of their business. 

The ladies encourage Jen to embrace her personal brand and explain how we are all already nice little boxes that we need to accept in order to communicate an authentic brand and earn the trust of our clients and customers. It's not only ok, to be ourselves, it's an imperative for our success! 

Not only that, but you don't need thousands of dollars to develop your personal brand successfully. You are going to love all the advice in this Jellysode!

"Just because you have money doesn't mean you can connect with people."

--Melanie Spring

When branding is at its most successful you are attracting the right clients, collaborators, and partners.  This is why it is so important to get yourself on brand as soon as possible. According to Melanie, it shouldn't be hard. If it is hard, then you probably aren't being true to yourself. It feels good and right when you are yourself within your brand. 

"Stay solid in your brand like a lighthouse." --- Rebecca Layton Gunter

 

Do you need help with your brand? Don't hesitate to contact Sisarina and follow them on social media to take advantage on all sorts of things they have going on that will benefit you and your business! Also, don't miss Melanie's Adventures In Branding Podcast
