Arianna (Huffington) and I
August has raced past and the holiday pictures have become a bit neglected as I settle busily into work back in NZ. There are so many exciting things happening, I'm looking forward to sharing them with you all. I'll get back to the tales from the freeway during our USA travels, but in the meantime, while we were on holiday I got some great news - I've had my first article published by the Huffington Post!
I wrote to Arianna Huffington herself to pitch my post - Five Ways Creativity Positively Affects Your Life - and was so excited to receive Arianna's reply that my post had been accepted! I was soaking up the scenery in Santa Cruz (like the picture above) when Arianna's reply arrived in my inbox. Joe and I had not long arrived in the States, and it felt like such an amazing welcome to America! Can you tell we're happy from the picture?!
Since publishing, I've had lots of comments and feedback that the article has been helpful, so head on over to the Huff Post and take a look. I'm keen to continue writing for the Huff Post, so I'll be sure and post here when I have published any articles, or you can follow me on Facebook where I'll let everyone know as well!
The journey to being visible as a creative entrepreneur is an interesting one: it's taken me a long time to be brave enough to step fully into this journey. Being fully in means you have to be brave enough to poke your head above the parapet (or it'll be a pretty short journey back to the 9 to 5!) So far, I've had overwhelmingly lovely support, which is so appreciated. Thanks everyone!
With that in mind, I'm keen to write guest articles or do guest podcasts for any other creative tribes out there. Please let me know of any cool creative people or businesses you know about!
