Episode 49 – Are You Ready to Hire?

Hey rebels! Are you overwhelmed with work and sometimes think, “Maybe I should hire someone?” Well, we are thinking about it too! In this episode, we chat all about hiring: how to know if you are ready to hire, what kind of person you should hire, how hiring is an investment and even how to handle payroll. We truly think that you should think of hiring as an investment in your business’ growth and use it as a time to move your business forward. We also chat about tasks and how to keep a running list of things you can delegate. This was a highly requested episode so we hope this gives you some ideas on when and who to hire and how to make the most of it.

Episode 47 – Selling Fine Art with Dorothy Collier

Hey Rebels!  We are so excited to have Dorothy Collier on the show this week! Dorothy Collier is the mixed media artist of Dorothy Art and the host of Positively Creative, a podcast for creative entrepreneurs. While growing up in the south, running around her grandmother’s antique shops, she quickly found a love for all things unique…and antique. By painting oil on canvas, using backgrounds of paper from weathered books, Dorothy’s pieces become narrative. She paints to create a sense of whimsical beauty and in some pieces, hopes to prompt the viewer into a child-like happiness. She uses simplistic elements to mirror her folk art influences and enjoys using quick gestural lines to give the vintage subjects a strong, soulful voice. Dorothy received her B.A. in Studio Art and Psychology from the University of Mississippi in 2009 and her MAT in Art Education at the University of Memphis in 2011. She resides in Memphis, Tennessee with her husband, John, their new addition, Johnny, and their yorkie, Oxford. Dorothy’s work appears in private home collections and gift retailers throughout the southeast.

Quote Love from Dorothy

Hiring Creatives is the best thing!

Create collections and give yourself a due date.

Apply! It doesn’t hurt to apply.

Episode 45 – Shop Talk with Cara Maybee of Desert Rose Equine

Hey Rebels!  Today we chat about Shop Talk with Cara Maybee of Desert Rose Equine.  Cara Maybee is horse tack creator from Albany NY.  After seeing that there was a missing piece in the tack world, Desert Rose Equine was created with the intentions of creating tack pieces with personality. Cara has blended her love for horses and graphic design all in one. When she isn’t working in her leather shop, she enjoys reading a good book, lifting weights and of course riding horses.

Cara has been a CBR Rebel from the very beginning of our podcast and we have been obsessed with her work ever since meeting her.   In today’s episode we talk about her passion for horse riding, putting yourself out there, failure, success, and the craziest thing that has ever happened to her because of her business.  You have got to tune in to this one!

 

Quote Love From Cara:

You are going to come across failure, and it’s okay…everyone fails.
As long as you keep making good content, you will do fine.
