Hi かわいい + Creative family,
Swinging thru with some photo spam of my time brand building with Naudia
~ of course this update is shared with love from your local kawaii creativity coach, me!
🌸BTS with 876-RawSoulArt🌸
I am still decompressing my spring Japan pilgrimage ~whoah!
But I couldn’t wait to share some behind the scenes of meeting + hanging out with one of my coaching clients, Naudia.
It was our first time meeting and I thought I’d end up going to be with her for one day …
Ms. ma’am had other plans in mind that included a full weekend of art shopping, creating + planning for her first show (as her brand, 876-RawSoulArt) ^.^
I can’t be mad at efficiently utilizing time so … how could I really say no?!
We grabbed some food, crashed, and got to work the next day ~
Here’s a small peek into her sketch book (with artist permission granted haha) ^.^
I just wanted to give you a peek but to see more of her work and budding brand
Follow Naudia and 876-RawSoulArt on Instagram
Now for some fun haha
🌸Kawaii Cafe no Jikan🌸
After covering a ton of ground on Sunday, I finally got Naudia out of her work space for a cute cafe experience ^.^
I believe in brain breaks and Japan is famous for their themed cafes ^.^
so I was definitely game ~
Sailor Moon x My Melody Cafe
She fought me tooth + nail … but we all know entrepreneurship can’t be all work, work, work, work ~
So take note –
If you’re not having fun while entrepreneur’ing, you’re doing it wrong!
🌸What’s Happened Since Then?!🌸
Naudia’s had her showcase and ROCKED IT!
And now she’s learning the fine art of pacing herself
👆🏾Pacing yourself helps overcome overwhelm + discouragement – this is something I teach EVERY 1:1 client since creating for self and for profit can feel EXTREMELY different until you find a flow that works for you.
What’s the best advice you’ve received recently? ____________________________________________________ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌺 My friend and business consultant @ipukekawaii gave me one of the best advice I’ve gotten in the longest time. After calling her one day in utter frustration and feeling burnt out she said “Remember you are the product and your art is the by- product!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌺 That was the necessary pause button I needed to slow down and allow myself to easily flow through this journey. The truth is there is no product if there’s no producer we gotta water ourselves with grace and love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌺 I was burning out, running this marathon as if it was a sprint. So now I am expressing gratitude for the advise she gave. Thank you Imani🤗💖🙏
🌸3 Tips to Creativepreneurship🌸
All that shared – here’s a quick lesson in creative entrepreneurship of ANY kind ~
1. Get organized
2. Pace yourself
3. BE KIND TO YOURSELF
You’re human and can only do some much in a day ~
Do that sh!t. Crush that sh!t. And go breathe + give your brain a hug.
If you’re not having fun while entrepreneur’ing …
YOU’RE NOT DOING IT RIGHT!
Love, Imani (イマーニ)
