Episode 44 – Productivity in Your Biz with Tonya Dalton

Hey Rebels!  Today we chat with Tonya Dalton.  Tonya Dalton is a productivity expert who started her first business in 2009 working out of her dining room juggling two small kids. By 2011, she had grown the business to the point where her husband could leave corporate America and come work with her. By combining her entrepreneurial spirit with his MBA and marketing experience, they were able to grow a small niche business quickly into something that could support their family. The company continued to flourish, but something was missing. In the summer of 2014 she closed up shop to follow her true passion of starting inkWELL Press – a company centered around productivity tools and training. inkWELL Press launched in November of 2014 and has been able to rapidly grow its online presence and expand into a national retail partnership thanks to a commitment to quality, focused marketing efforts and fiercely loyal fans. Recently Tonya launched her podcast, Productivity Paradox, which debuted at #12 in iTunes in the Business category and surpassed 100,000 downloads in the first few months. Tonya believes that too many women feel overwhelmed with all that they have to do each day, and many times their own dreams get pushed aside – she helps women use productivity to pursue their big goals and end each day feeling satisfied and successful.

Quote Love From Tonya:

“Educating people really refills me”

“You either jump off a cliff or stand there and look”

My Shift into Podcast Producing

Caroline here! Have you ever thought about starting a podcast? Maybe the technical stuff just overwhelms you to your core? Kelly and I were totally that way when we started our own podcast baby. I quickly discovered how awesome and amazing the process actually is and I fell madly in love. Podcasting has changed my life. It has given me a voice, confidence and a new found skillset that gets me excited whenever I sit down to the computer. I really hope to be doing this for a long long time.

In our episode this week, Kelly and I chatted about shifts we have made and are making in our businesses. My biggest shift this year has been downsizing my shop and wholesale and adding something that truly makes me excited and want to get out of bed in the morning.

As I shift my business, I am now going to be offering podcast editing and producing services.

For me, the podcast process is so much more than simply recording and editing. I want to make sure that from start to finish, your podcast episodes look, sound and are delivered the way they should be. This is what I do with Creative Biz Rebellion and I love every second. I am super excited to begin helping others achieve their podcasting dreams.

Don’t worry, I’m not closing my shop and will continue to create designs and products featuring my hand lettering. I believe it is important that your work brings you joy and invigorates you. Hand lettering and podcasting is my jam and I can’t wait to see where this next phase of my business takes me.

You can check out more about my services on my website.

Later rebels!
