S02 Episode 8: How Do You Tell Your Story And Promote It?

When you make things the goal is usually you want people to come check it out? Like these local shops do? But how do you promote something like that? And where do you find the people to tell about it?

That leads to this weeks question:
"How do you tell your story and promote it?"

If you create things in your spare time, you've probably thought about trying to do it for a living or maybe you're just trying to get the guts to put it out there for the first time.

So what would it take to follow through and actually do it?
To help understand what it's like, listen to what these local creatives say about what they do.
Here's a list of the places I talk to in each episode this season.
Each week I ask one question and find out where the conversation takes us, to learn more about how these people decided to take their process one step further.

Sara (@smeretactics) and I have been trying to set up an interview for a while. I'm glad we were finally able to meet up!

Holly Meyers

I begin my quest to meet artists in Madison, WI with Holly Meyers.

After moving to Madison she was inspired by life changes and her new city's creative energy to devote herself more fully to art. She tells me about how early in life she lost all of her artwork in a fire. Then took that opportunity to reinvent what she does.

We discuss how, even with kids and a job, she finds the time to create. Plus, she found out that claiming your living room as a studio on your taxes is an actual thing you can do!

"What made you decide to start your own business?"
