But today I’d like to share some things I’ve learned recently about hiring that may help business owners out there and offer some business consulting openings! (more…)
Today I’ve got a special guest on The Lively Show that you may not be familiar with, Noah Kagan.
He’s a taco loving, introspective, completely open, Austin-based entrepreneur who is well known for founding AppSumo.com and his early involvement in Facebook (he was employee #30).
He also shares great business insights and life hacks on his blog, OkDork.com.
In this week’s show, we’re having a “lively” conversation (I don’t often throw that term around, but it’s true) about intentions, meaning, and values.
Today’s episode of The Lively Show has a special guest…. Mr. Lively himself!
When I first started dating my husband, I called him Mr. Lively on the blog.
Back then, many readers assumed it was a pseudonym.
In fact, one or two readers even shared their disappointment when they learned that Lively was, in fact, his last name. They preferred the idea that it was a nickname based on his personality alone.
Me on the other hand?
I was thrilled to adopt the Lively last name myself!
Anyways, today’s your chance to get to know the hubba.
We’ll be talking about loving a 9-to-5 job. This is an important topic – and one of my favorite episodes – because I deeply believe being intentional is not tied to entrepreneurship specifically.
This episode is perfect for those who love their day jobs, those who want to find a 9-to-5 they love, or for those who want to hear about the benefits of having a day job compared to entrepreneurship.
I’ve been a big fan of Erin Gates of Elements Of Style for many years and I have loved reading her blog and learning from her as a designer and following her life and career.
In this episode we talk about her exceptional career path and book deal.
But our main topic is perfectionism (starting at 18:30) – how Erin has learned to make the most out of it and appreciate it for what it is, rather than fighting to change herself.
This episode is perfect for bloggers, designers, aspiring authors, and anyone who struggles with perfectionism.
Today’s Lively Show episode is near and dear to my heart: investing in yourself.
For many years I thought learning was best done through experience alone, rather than books, classes, and conferences.
But my views are now completely reversed. I am now a huge advocate for learning from relevant sources as much as possible.
Amber Housley embodies this spirit of learning and investing in yourself more than anyone else I know online. So I asked her to be on today’s episode to share her learning tips and tactics with us.
She is constantly expanding her skills and as a result has done a remarkable job building a profitable lifestyle business while juggling a full-time job and raising two young children.
In today’s episode, Amber shares how she invests in herself wisely, particularly now that she has the two littles to care for, and how she gets the most of her educational experiences.
Good morning and happy
Thursday Lively Show Day to you!
In today’s episode, I am talking with the candid founder of Design*Sponge, Grace Bonney.
If you’re not already familiar with Grace, she has a (hugely) popular design blog and is the author of Design*Sponge at Home.
Last week’s Ask Me Anything was a lot of fun! It was so great to help so many of you in such a personal way. I plan on doing another one of these AMA’s in a few months, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, I’d like to address one of the popular phrases that stuck out to me in answering the questions you shared.
“I feel lost.”
Today I have a fun new episode of The Lively Show for you chalk full of actionable advice for starting your own business as an artist and adopting or rescuing a pet.
My guest today is Kim Vargo of Yellow Brick Home and The Pet Shop (her pet portrait business). She’s sharing about her unexpected journey to becoming a successful artist (over 700 custom paintings sold!) and pet rescue advocate.
Listen and subscribe via iTunes. Today's Lively Show episode packs in a lot of great takeaways on several topics including streamlining your career (or business), transitioning from a day…
