5 WAYS I ENTREPRENEUR
Hi everyone; it’s Steph here from Art Tribe Creative
Like so many others in this tech hub that is Vancity I am an entrepreneur; having created Art Tribe Creative just under a year ago from my Stanley Park side studio.
Being an entrepreneur is tricky business; you wear a lot of different hats; but the most important chapeau of all is the one that helps achieve balance and inspiration.
Today I want to share with you how I entrepreneur and some super cool resources that inspire me every day.
I know meditation has a reputation for being something hippies and monks do, but it’s honestly the backbone of balance for me.
Now I’m as ADD as the rest of us GenYer’s so don’t get me wrong, meditating does not have to be an hour long marathon, but a 5-10 minute daily ritual helps me stay focused, calm and clear headed.
I recently downloaded and the iphone app “breath” placing it in prime iphone real estate (replacing my e-mail)
It’s fantastic and even rewards you with stickers, so you have to check it out.
2- ONLINE HERO’S
The internet is a fabulous place to get inspired, linking us to artists and coaches world wide.
I subscribe to a number of newsletters and youtube channels that notify me via my e-mail inbox daily.
One of my favourite youtube channels is that of Marie Forleo, with fun and topical youtube video’s weekly helping inspire creativity and productivity.
Who are you’re online hero’s?
3- COMMUNITY & RESOURCES
Every entrepreneur needs a community, whether it’s a small group of friends who meet monthly to chat about challenges, or a local organization that supports local entrepreneurs.
