The more we learn, the more resources our creativity has to draw from us as we build our businesses. No investment is wasted.

In this episode, Elizabeth and Emma dive into how creativity can thrive most when we are at peace by expanding via imperfection and authenticity. This soulful, honesty conversation discusses how showing up imperfectly allows you to be vulnerable and alive, and magnetically draws in like-minded clients as well. 

Both women find goodness in the “stretchy” part of growth in business. By being a co-collaborator with your clients and audience, and being open to feedback, everything can come together for maximum growth, creativity, and potential. 

After joining the conversation, you’ll leave knowing that breathing life into your business is really all about doing things your own way with imperfection.


Emma is the founder of The EN School of Creative Entrepreneurship, both a magical philosophy and place of learning where business becomes art.  Her revolutionary, creative-centric approach to entrepreneurship helps people build businesses tailored to their creative calling. Her continued exploration makes room for expansion, creativity, sustainability, and justice, making this approach vital to the future of business and our world.
