Another new podcast discovery. Focused on interviews with creative people / makers who have started building their own businesses.
This episode of Creative Rebels features Angelica Malin, the founder of About Time magazine which she started straight after college.
There’s a lot packed into this podcast, touching on the many different challenges of running a creative business.
- Work life balance is a myth. Work and life are becoming integrated and we’re continuously flowing from one to the other. Recognize that it’s ok for the boundaries to blur. But, need to learn how to manage it to avoid burnout.
- Passion projects beat doing it for the money every time. When things go wrong (and they will, a lot) it’s the passion and purpose that will keep you moving forward.
- When brands started to move their ad spend to social media, About Time magazine was able to pivot to the events business because they had a small nimble team. They hadn’t gone all in and doubled down on one thing. So were able to see change coming AND do something about it.
