The latest episode of Tried & True With a Dash of Woo


As creative entrepreneurs, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle of building our businesses and pursuing our passions. But without prioritizing self-care and mental health, we may find ourselves on a slippery slope toward depression and creative burnout. In this episode of Tried & True With a Dash of Woo, we’ll explore the importance of self-care, understanding your worth as a business owner, and working with your creative brain to unleash your full potential.

You’ll love this heartfelt conversation with Emil, a talented senior photographer from Slice of Lime Photography. Emil shares her experiences as a neurodiverse creative and the impact it can have on mental health. We discussed how essential it is to recognize the signs of burnout and implement strategies to maintain our well-being as we navigate the world of creative entrepreneurship.

One crucial aspect of maintaining mental health is understanding your worth as a business owner. It’s vital to show up confidently in your work and acknowledge the value you bring to your clients. This can help you set boundaries, charge what you’re worth, and ultimately prevent feelings of burnout and overwhelm.

To stay creative and inspired, it’s essential to make time for personal projects that fuel your passion. These projects can help reignite your love for your craft and remind you why you chose this path in the first place. Additionally, working with your creative brain – instead of against it – can help you harness its strengths and overcome any challenges that may arise.

Emil’s insights highlight the importance of self-care and mental health in sustaining a successful creative business. By prioritizing these aspects of our lives, we can prevent burnout, depression, and other mental health challenges that may hinder our progress. So take a step back, reassess your priorities, and make self-care a non-negotiable part of your routine. Your creativity, your business, and your mental health will thank you.

Remember, as a creative entrepreneur, you have the power to define your worth and create a thriving, sustainable business that aligns with your values and passions. By embracing self-care, working with your unique strengths, and engaging in personal projects that inspire you, you can unleash your full creative potential and achieve lasting success in your chosen field!
