In this episode I am joined by one of my business besties, Valerie McKeehan. She is an incredible artist who has worked with brands like Anthropologie, Nordstrom, and Starbucks. Yep, she’s amazing. We talk about the business of creativity, falling into ruts, learning to trust yourself, and how to get back into the zone to be able to keep producing results.

I’m so excited to have Valerie McKeehan as my very first guest on the Balancing Busy podcast!  You’ve seen her work even if you don’t know you’ve seen her work. She is an artist with deadlines. An artist who over the years has needed to produce a lot.

I asked Val to sit down and talk to me about if it’s possible to have a system for creativity… (great news, it is!) and how you and I can cultivate our own.

This will help:

  • Anyone who needs to create consistent content
  • Those creating (especially on a deadline)
  • Anyone trying to share fresh ideas regularly!
