Episode 52: Some big day job news - and what it did to our writing

In Episode 52, we talk about some big developments in our day jobs, and how that's affected our writing. We touch on how it feels to move into - or stay in - jobs that work well for you. And a bit more on how trusting your intuition - making a big personal choice - helps you get over making lots of other choices, and why that feels so good. Meghan also gives Olivia a little pep talk about how the daydreaming about her book is also part of writing, even if she hasn't had much time or energy to make progress on her book.

Episode 51: Paul Jarvis on growing your brand intentionally

In today's episode, we talk to writer and designer Paul Jarvis, who has many insightful things about how to grow your brand in an intentional way, and about making the transition from a day job to writing full-time.

In this episode, we talked about

  • how he made that transition himself,
  • how introverted writers can build their brand,
  • what Spiderman can tell you about achieving your dreams,
  • why both lower bounds and upper bounds are important when you're setting goals,
  • the questions he asks himself to know what is enough, and
  • scorpions.

Paul Jarvis is a writer and designer who’s worked with professional athletes like Steve Nash and Shaquille O’Neal, corporate giants like Microsoft and Mercedes-Benz, and entrepreneurs with online empires like Danielle LaPorte and Marie Forleo. Currently he teaches popular online courses, hosts several podcasts and develops small but mighty software solutions.

Paul has just released Company of One: Why Staying Small Is the Next Big Thing in Business, a book we talk about on the podcast, about being intentional in deciding how to grow your brand and business - a concept we apply to the creative life. You can find out more on the book at ofone.co.

Paul also sends out a weekly newsletter, called the Sunday Dispatches, and his website has a lot of archives of his writing, which we recommend checking out.

Episode 50: To Quit or not to Quit

In this episode, we go through our brainstorming process for all the things you might want to think about when considering whether to quit your day job to write. We'll be honest: we don't have answers, just a lot of questions. But that's because there are no answers, just different paths we all take. We'll spend the rest of this season talking to experts on writing and these questions, to see if we can get more advice to consider when you're making this choice.

Episode 49: You’ll never believe what happened after we decided to quit our novels

For Episode 49, we got to have the fantastic luxury of recording in real life, huddling over a single microphone in Meghan's home. We enjoyed sharing how things have shaped up after we decided to quit our novels (total clickbait headline), and then talking about friendship and our new brand redesign (do you like our new colors?).
