Whether we’re building a business, creating art, loving family and friends, or exploring the world, the quality of our lives is what matters most. Positive psychology helps us understand that leaning into our strengths will yield a more fulfilling life. Taking this same principle and applying it to our business yields tremendous results and today’s guest, Lisa Robbin Young, helps us see how we can do just that, especially as creatives. This week, episode 179 of the Positively Living Podcast is about the best way for creative entrepreneurs to build a business!

Lisa Robbin Young is an award-winning speaker, best-selling author, and accomplished musician with multiple albums to her credit. Lisa is the host of Creative Freedom and founder of Ark Entertainment Media – a growth consultancy for maverick micropreneurs who want a business that works for how they’re wired to work. She believes that the best way to be successful is to be yourself – warts, sparkles,  and all – so that you can Own Your Dreams Without Selling Your Soul (TM).

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Lisa Robbin Young shares how working in alignment can make your experience be less “effort full” and more “effort less” and she offers you actionable steps to take right now to build a business and life that you love based on your creative entrepreneur type. 

Lisa and I cover the following topics:

  • Getting a good ROR (return on your resources). 
  • Creative types and the spectrum we fall under.
  • Finding our ideal entrepreneur zone.
  • The choices we make (and the struggles we face) when getting into our zone of genius and excellence. 

Find what you love and what you do well (which are often the same) and do more of that. Productivity, success, and fulfillment will follow.
