Episode 1 - Why Wake to Make?
This is the Wake To Make podcast where we support you, the maker, so your making can support you. We’re a husband and wife team inspiring, empowering and equipping makers, just like you, to show you how to design your lives in such a way that your art works as hard as you do and to come along side you to build a thriving creative business.
When it comes to building a thriving creative business, we’re here to empower, support and equip you as a Maker by sharing pro biz tips, tech tools and strategies that have worked while helping you realize that you are valuable and have unique value to add to this world.
Today we’re sharing our journey from fine art classes at age 8 to Zac joining The Higgins Creative full time and the challenges that go along with that, the origin of the Wake To Make Movement, what it means to live creatively and a life that’s intentional as well as the mindset that goes along with being a maker and entrepreneur.
Our Maker question this week was from Tenika Eardley:
“I’d like to know how you manage your relationship in the business realm and family realm. Do you ever feel like your need more personal space, obviously you love working together and you’re great together but does working a living together, all day every day, wear on you. And if so, how do you combat that?”
Hop on at 13:56 minutes to see our answer to Tenika’s question
