My guest today is Tracy Matthews, Chief Visionary Officer of Flourish and Thrive Academy and host of the Thrive by Design podcast. Tracy is a jewelry designer and entrepreneur who loves marketing. Even more than that, she loves helping other creative folks (and as we discuss, by “creative” we mean EVERYONE) get a handle on the business side of their work. If you’ve ever wondered how to make the leap from hobby to business, or if you’re struggling to find the balance between the work you love and the marketing end, you’ll get a lot out of this interview, including the importance of fun and protecting your creativity, how we often give up too quickly—but sometimes, if something isn’t lighting you up anymore, you may need to switch gears—and a lot more. Here’s my conversation with Tracy Matthews.
“For me, anytime in life when something doesn’t seem fun, it means it’s a ‘no’ or you’re going down the wrong path”Tracy Matthews
