Listen in as we discuss the rhythms of creativity and business and what that looks like for a professional creative.
Discussed in this episode:
- Tuning into our natural rhythms from the heartbeat to the seasons helps us approach our creativity and businesses from a more holistic perspective.
- If you’re an artist thinking about how to share your work with the world, you can find creative clues by asking what captivated you as a child.
- When it comes to balancing art and business, ask yourself, What categories are mine, and what do I need help with?
- Sharing your work and your offerings from a place of empathy, and how considering that can guide what and how you share.
Join us at Immersion Live, where Morgan will dive deeper into how to embrace your natural rhythms to take the pressure off of yourself.

Review of the week:
This feels like I’m being mentored into my next season of business!
This podcast is more valuable to me than many of the online courses I have paid good money for. I’m ten years into my creative business and things are going really well, but I have some barriers that I needed broken down. With Bonnie sharing such a generous look into her business, her ethos behind why she does what she does, and so many actionable steps, I feel like I am being mentored in how to step into this next season for my business. I am truly grateful and feel so aligned with how she leads her company. Thank you for helping to set a vision for me, Bonnie. I can’t tell you how much this podcast means to me right now.
