Run Your Business

Without Losing Your Creative Soul


There are two sides to you. The business side - who loves big picture strategy, booking clients, making money...and the artist side - who just wants to create from the soul (and hey, maybe get some recognition along the way!). Thing is, you run a business. So what happens to your artist when your CEO side starts taking over your life?

Meet Shannon and Kerri. Two young entrepreneurs who also happen to be artists. Noticing that their writing and performing fell to the wayside as their businesses grew - they made a pact with one another that they would refuse to lose their creative souls, even as they bootstrapped their careers.

Go behind-the-scenes on the journey as they share intimate in-the-moment diaries, weird tips and everything they’ve learned (but haven't quite yet mastered) about making business and art live in harmony.
